My name is Onengi Onugha, married with 3 kidadults ranging from ages 17 -21yrs. My entire life I’ve been on the big side, and when people want to humor me they tell me I am not fat I am huge, big boned or big. I’ve come to realize that they mean the same thing. I really was not really bothered about my weight until I saw a picture of myself a friend sent to me,  I was aghast because I couldn’t recognize myself.

At this point I knew I had to do something about my weight, I had recently become more active on Facebook and I  had just become friends with Nina Ndubuisi who apparently attended the same secondary/high school as I did but I really couldn’t remember her very well, but that really didn’t matter to me. One day I read a post she put on her wall about her visit to her doctor and how he had given her a wake up call about her health and her weight. Next thing I knew she had checked herself into a slimming programme. I saw Nina over the next 2yrs stumble, dust herself up, succeed and lose weight gradually but never giving up. She started posting pictures of her daily menus, unknown to her I was copying and replicating some of her menus at least those I could find the ingredients in Nigeria. I watched as Nina dropped from a dress size 32 to a size 16 in awe and amazement. I started in-boxing  her on Facebook asking for details on how she did it. I am sure I wasn’t the only one pestering her for details  because she is on her way to launching her own new platform for weight loss  ‘SLIM WITH EASE’ in Nigeria!!!!


Precisely 4 weeks ago Nina Ndubuisi asked on Facebook for volunteers to sign on as ‘Guinea Pigs’ to enable her test run her new slim with ease weight loss programme using food available in Nigeria.

Of course I signed on immediately, the first week was tough on me because I had to let go of all the weight loss theories and myths that I had held on too for years. I was encouraged to eat more following set guidelines, and move my body more so I opted for a 30-45 min walk when I could for the first week. To my utter amazement and delight at the end of the week when I weighed myself I had lost 2kg. I couldn’t believe it I weighed myself 2 more times to double check before I had the courage to tell my eldest daughter. In the 4 weeks I’ve been on the SLIM WITH EASE way of life I’ve lost a total of 3kg, which is amazing. Obviously some weeks were better than some, I noticed the weeks I did my early morning walks I lost more but the weeks I didn’t exercise I maintained my weight if I remained on the plan.

This weight loss programme is really easy you can involve your entire family all it needs is really a little extra effort in planning your meals ahead of time.  Even when you do not stick to the plan and gain some weight you can wipe the slate clean and start all over again. The day I duffed my hat to Nina and SLIM WITH EASE was when I saw a picture of steamed broccoli and cauliflower, peas and sweet corn in a magazine and I started salivating!!!! LOL! That was a first for me! But it showed me how much my mindset had changed as regards food. Thank you Mrs Nina Ndubuisi and SLIM WITH EASE wishing you the absolute best in Nigeria. I intend to continue with the programme I have not gotten to my ideal weight yet but I am on track.
