True Life: I'm Fat.

Soooo I am officially fat fat. 

The emphasis is on the second fat. 

 

I mean , I've always been a big girl ( my shape is my saving grace ),  but now I have finally reached the threshold of

"okay girl , this tew much" 

That's my knees talking, btw. 

I would love to blame it on the move to LA ( did I mention it's been a year?) or on that one date I went on back in December of 2015 that downward spiraled my fitness regime ( story time coming soon ) and decreased my affinity for Aquarius men ( wouldn't be me if I didn't throw my shade) , but honestly I just slacked off and got lazy and now I have an extra 40lbs

My reaction stepping on the scale realizing how short of the glory of God I have fallen.

( yes sis)  & a double chin to show for it . 

My entire life I have battled with losing weight and here and there I would drop 30lbs only to yo-yo and gain it back . Don't get me wrong, I've never hated my body , but it could definitely use some shaping up. I'd love to say this time will be different  but I'll do one better and put my money where my mouth is , even though I am fake broke y'all. 

I am hoping that by sharing bits and pieces of my journey here on Just Talk , it will help me form a community of other bawse werking women who are also trying to shake the weight for good. So if you are up for the challenge, meet me back here every Wednesday and we can share tips , recipes , exercises & all that other good stuff needed to motivate us long enough to shed the pounds. Expect weigh-ins every two weeks and updated measurements as we go along !

Would it be cliche to say I'm excited ? I mean this is like my 100th time trying ! Honestly I'm just trying to be regular fat again. I aspire to be on someone's island ( particularly Barbados for my 26th birthday this July) with a margarita (or sangria, I'm not picky) in hand, belting out drake's infamous line 

" Stomach on flat flat, a** on what's that?" 

Because for once it will be true. Well at least the stomach part  , I already got the other one on lock.

So here's some updated fitness pics & my current stats. Just please remember, 

You see the tears in her eyes, that's how I feel when I see my double chin. Just utter disappointment.
