Tynee Talks: I’m Fat AF and it’s a problem…The Journey with Jen
Tynee Talks: I’m Fat AF and it’s a problem…The Journey with
Me and Jen
Let me start off by saying that I’ve been off balance and I’ve
missed ya’ll. It seems like when you become off balance in one area of your
life, it trickles down to other parts as well. My unbalanced life started when
I lost my job in August of 2017. I knew my job was coming to an end, but as the
day drew closer, my anxiety grew bigger, and my appetite grew even larger. As I
began to eat my sorrows away and stress eat like no tomorrow, unbalance began
showing up on my body. This became evident when I realized I was tipping the
Actual photo of how I look!!! Yikes!
A wise rapper once said, “Women lie, men lie, numbers don’t lie!” And
that dude was right! The scale determined that I was beginning to spiral out of
control and it was taking a toll on my health. My stomach started to look like
I was 107 seven weeks pregnant, my back began to ache like an 87 year old
patient with chronic muscle spasms, and I began popping out of my clothes like
a can of Pillsbury dough. Something had to give, and I didn’t want it to be my
favorite pair of jeans. So, like any normal human, I ran to Facebook with my
problems. Because you know, Facebook is the solver of all things! LOL! Anyway,
I put an APB out on Facebook, and made a status explaining that I looked a hot
mess and could someone please help me fight my fat demons; and guess, what
someone came to my aid. That someone was one of my best friend’s older sister,
Steph. Steph, then connected me to Jennifer and this is where the story begins…
On Wednesday, September 20, 2017, and I get a call from
Steph to meet up at her place for some fitness tips and health supplements.
Steph tells me I need to try LEAN. I’m looking like, really bih?
You trying to
get me to die like Pimp C? She’s like no crazy, it’s a natural supplement made
by ID Life, which will boost your metabolism and help suppress your sugar
cravings. She then says, “Just talk to my trainer Jennifer, she’ll explain all
the benefits.” I’m like okay, cool.
In a twist of fate, I happened to have met Jen, exactly one
week ago, and had no idea that, we would embark on a journey together. Last
Friday, September 15, 2017, I went to my local park to join up with Camp
Gladiator.Camp Gladiator is a fitness organization I joined a few weeks ago. I
usually attend Camp on Saturday’s, but I was free last Friday, so I went to the
morning fitness class. As you can imagine, I was struggling out here in these
streets. I was running slower than the rest of the campers, out of breath after
every exercise, and I low-key wanted to punch my instructor every time she
said, “20 more seconds!” But then, this angelic white woman with beautiful
brown eyes, kept encouraging me like the whole time. I was looking like, is she
being facetious or is she being for real? I couldn’t tell, because I was on the
brink of an asthma attack.
Fast forward to today, Friday, September 22, 2017, I
promised Steph, that I’d meet up with her and her friend Jennifer. I was late
to Camp, so I hadn’t had a chance to talk with Steph and meet her friend. When
Camp was over Steph wanted to me to meet her friend Jennifer, who happened to
be Jen, my angelic cheerleader from the previous week. I was floored!!! Long
story short, Jennifer will be helping me battle the bulge, and I want all my
readers to follow my journey. Wish me luck!
