The Elephant in the Bloom (Blog + Room = Bloom)

Okay guys,

It's time for some truth telling. I've been avoiding it but let's face it. Some of you have noticed and asked questions. Some people have even called me to ask. I've gotten comments on Facebook, Instagram, at work. It's actually almost borderline embarrassing, and I've thought about lying just to cover it up and stop the comments and questions. But it's not a good idea to lie about something like this, so I'm just going to be straight with you. You guys know I like to be honest, right? Okay, here goes...


I'VE GAINED WEIGHT... A WHOLE LOT OF IT... 

*heaves sigh of relief*

I know you've wondered about it. Apart from the Newlywed Weight Gain, it just seemed like the weight was piling on, right? And you wondered if I was going to announce the impending arrivals of grapes and/or cupcakes, right? Well, not just yet. It's just good old-fashioned fat. (If anyone from TW Fitness Challenge is reading this, please rewind time and skip this post)

Of course the easiest person to blame is Cakes. I mean, he bakes, so duh! And then he cooks better than me, so more duh! And then he likes to fry everything, including water, so most duh! Plus if you could just melt sugar, he would drink it all day, everyday. And guess what? He stepped on the scale 2 weeks ago and has gained just 1kg. I, on the other hand, saw a new number for the first time in God knows how long.

CHAI...

Anyways, the first step to overcoming a problem is to admit you have a problem. So dear friends, here is my picture to show that I'm admitting to unnecessary weight gain. :(


Don't say anything if you saw the original picture on Instagram

Thank you for your unwavering support, my friends. I know you will be truthful and tell me if I look preggers.

Have a blessed week.

  1. When I read your "CHAI" exclamation, the next thing that entered my head was, "there is God o." It will be a while before I disassociate the two. ;)
    Your upper body is slim and your lower body is slim too, so it's just the mid section that is making me feel that it is just a case of "ihe di na ukwu." (I am hoping you can translate that because of your love for Flavour's voice.)

    1. Hehe, I was actually going to continue with "Diaris od ooooo" but decided not to.

      Ihe di na ukwu... I dunno what it means. Can I ask my mum without her freaking out?

  8. I had already started writing about post wedding weight gain before reading your post. This is so true hopefully post honeymoon phase it will drop off. x

  9. I think I agree with the photoshopped comment.Foe one your face isn't showing any weight gain.secondly the pics of your trip didn't show any weight gain that could have led to this in a very short period.
    I think You are playing games!
