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.
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!
