One of the pleasures of doing the work I do is getting to work with amazing women to reach their body health and beauty goals. I derive even more pleasure from sharing their success stories, here is our first Celebrating Success feature.
All my life I have been conscious of the fact that I was not made to be skinny. As a curvy girl it means I need to have some weight to carry the curves.
These are curves that I developed early. So I have always been watching what I eat. Three years ago I decided to add weight to see what I will look like being a bit heavy.
So I added weight thereby increasing my hip size from my comfort zone of a size 40 to a size 44 (in inches). On getting to the size I didn’t like the way I looked. Last year with diet I was able to bring it down to 42.
Getting it back to 40 became mission impossible till I met Ejiro. Before I met her, I thought using gym equipment (treadmill, elliptical machine cardiovascular machine etc) were the only equipment you can use to exercise.
The idea of hitting the gym after work sounded suicidal because of the stress of work and driving in Lagos traffic, thereby making me believe that I could only do exercise on Saturday, which isn’t what I wanted to lose the 2 inches round my hips.
Ejiro & I met on one of my jobs and she became my Lifestyle Coach and Personal Trainer. Ejiro is one of the most tenacious, supportive and entertaining personal trainers I have had the pleasure of working out with.
She changed my perspective of thinking that I need to go to the gym before I can exercise and taught me how to exercise in my bedroom and with little home appliances, and each time an exercise is too hard for me she is always ready to find a modified move for me so I don’t hurt myself and I still reach the same goal.
She also helped me changed my diet into healthy eating habits. We were able to do all this over the phone and the internet, so battling Lagos traffic was a non-issue.
She always said that all I need is 30 minutes of my time in a day in order to stay beautiful, so far she has been right because after 3 months of working with Ejiro, I have not only lost the 2 inches round my hips, I have experienced a massive transformation in my whole body. I am at my best.
Above all I feel and look better physically than I have in my life.
