As we know, weight loss is the HARDEST thing you can ever do in life. I mean to give up EVERYTHING you love to eat is insane, right? I mean those sweets, good southern food, Caribbean food, Mexican food, Chinese food, etc. WAIT, I CAN NOT LEAVE OUT KRISPY KRACK KREME DONUTS. MERCY OF THE LORD SAVORY!! THEM GOTDAMN DONUTS. (yes, it was that serious for me lolol)
So, let me ask this because I know a lot of you felt the fuck out of that shit I just said at the beginning. If this food only makes you feel good for the moment you're eating, don't you realize you have to keep eating in order to fulfill that instant gratification of happiness? Don't you see that the way you are choosing to be happy is killing you?
As much as we like to say how confident we are as plus size women (yes I was this girl) we have to admit that it's a health hazard. No matter how confident you are, being overweight is a health hazard.
The number one question I get when I post before and after pics on social media is, "How did you do it"? I struggle with answering this question. Here's why people want me to say what I did as far as food and exercise'; no one wants to know how I needed to get to the root cause of why I was eating and then put forth the action of losing weight. NO ONE WANTS THAT PART.
After addressing the root cause, I was able to drop the pounds via diet and exercise. It was really that simple. Doing the work to get to a place of losing weight. The action of figuring out why was the hardest than doing the act of weight loss.
Being a mom of 2 boys with special needs, I knew I needed to be my best so they can thrive. In order for them to thrive, I have to thrive.
