“Yo…whats up Rick Ross!!” said some random woman “Yeah Man I see you Rick Rossin it over there!” said some random guys on a street corner while I was walking down the street with a young lady. “6 Piece, Mild Sauce..aint got not bread…bitch I got coleslaw…bitch I got coleslaw!!”….HA! The last one is a knock off of Rick Ross’s song “9 Piece” I made up when I was doing the CGX showcase…lol
Umm…yeah …anyway. The only thing Rick Ross and I have in common is that we both rap; however up until a few weeks ago we probably did weigh the same.
To be honest I never realized I was so huge until my doctor used the words “Morbidly Obese” with me. I studied Latin at Hales Franciscan (S/O to Father Lawrence) so I know that morbid is derived from the Latin word meaning diseased or unhealthy. Obese means fat. So pretty much I was so huge that I was at risk of getting some type of disease that could potentially kill me. Thats is sobering.
I have too much to live for and things to do. I had to change my mind. Fortunately I have people in my life that care for me and have been helping me on this journey and I appreciate them a great deal. I’ve been working out 5 days a week, cutting calories and a list of other things that has led to me shedding 28.0 pounds as of 2 minutes ago. I just weighed myself.
My short term goal is to loose 30 pounds. I’m 2 pounds away!! My long term goal is to get to 250 pounds. Im 42 pounds away.
I can’t speak highly enough about my support system. Everyone from friends and family have been here for me during this journey. They have always been here. I just needed to choose to do it.
It’s so amazing to feel your body change for the better. My clothes fit different, I’m more energetic and over all I just feel good.
I know there are so many other people out there who are like me and what to drop some weight and get healthier. Many of us wait till the New Year to get started on our journey.
I was speaking with someone very close to me and she had the idea of getting fit before the New Year. Lets not wait to drop the weight. Lets go into 2014 NEW!!! IT’S GENIUS!!
I have started The October 1st Challenge “Get Fit For 2014”. The idea is to start your training now and actually get the ball moving in 2013 towards your fitness goals, so that it is second nature by the time the new year comes around. Who knows, maybe you can achieve your goal by midnight of December 31, 2013.
YOU have to WANT to do THIS. No one else can coax you or make fun of you enough to change your life. Thousands of others including myself are here for you to provide support. We need each other, so lets help each other.
So…ARE YOU WITH ME?!!!
I want to know what you think about this. How much weight do you want to loose? Will you join me on this challenge. Leave a comment below.
