Well I left the blogger world as in I erased every existence of a girl called Naija Sapphire but now I'm back with a bang - older and better. In the past I've been through my personal idea of hell. I have come a long way since then and now I'm glad that I can look back and smile, knowing fully well that God had bigger and better plans for me the entire time. First, I moved from US back to Nigeria to start the whole 'Corper thing'. It was very fascinating and I would not trade my experience for anything but my heart grieves for the corpers that lost their lives or were injured in an extremely gruesome excuse for dis-stability.
Anyway, I'm back in school again as a graduate student. It's so much fun but as someone once told me, 'School is a lot of fun when you're doing well, academically'. That is not to say that you have to do well to be enjoy being a student or that doing well is the only thing that you need to do. It's just that it makes you feel like you're in control of what's happening around you. So that's that. Research is another thing entirely for another day and another time.
Finally, the main reason I got back to this blog has to do with weight issues. I recently found out that I dropped a couple of pounds (YAY!) and I am ecstatic. The world looks at you differently when you walk into the 'Above-Average' section of Macy's or when your clothes stray to reveal spare tires. I am not trying to conform to what society thinks of me. Personally, I just want to look hotter in the clothes I put on and I do not want to have to feel insecure when my friends are wearing strapless dresses and I have to use a shawl to cover up the other things. So when I discovered how big I was, imagine my surprise. A lot of big people realize that they are big but do not get an actual sense of how big they are till they see the scale. So this is my way of keeping myself motivated. I have actually lost 10 pounds in 23 days from 260 (not my actual weight, i weigh less) to 250.2. Wish me luck!
