Tynee Talks: I’m Fat AF and it’s a problem…The Journey with Jen
|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 scales.

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?
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!
