Hello and welcome to my blog! I go by “Dr. Vee” and I am a young Nigerian-American woman with a drive to better herself while inspiring others along the way. I am a graduate of the University of Houston (GO COOGS!) and soon-to-be graduate of Meharry Medical College, accomplishing my life long dream of becoming a physician.
I initially wanted to change after my first semester in college. I no longer played varsity basketball. I had a glorious meal plan and indulged myself way beyond my previous athletic physique. I probably gained at least 20 pounds that year. The following summer I was determined to shed the unwanted pounds. Of course as a young girl I chose trendy popular methods like eating lettuce, pretending I was full while hunger taunted me all day, and doing cardio for hours on end. I was successful in losing the weight. Thirty plus pounds gone in one summer. But I was unsuccessful in maintaining my “gains”. I quickly put back on the weight I lost and then some. I was losing and not in the manner I wished. It wasn’t until the summer of 2012 when I could barely catch my breath playing a game of basketball that I became fed up once again, but this time I chose to bring change into my life the right way. A sustainable lifestyle change.
