Poets, I am appreciative that you guys have invested in my weight loss journey! It started off as a competition alongside my closest friends, but it is slowly becoming a lifestyle change. I am learning to be open to different, healthier foods. I actually take time now to see what is in my food through the packaging and found myself putting it down and creating my own dishes! This week exercising have been a challenge, nevertheless I use my KHLOE Kardashian BODY vision board to keep me motivated! I pray your journey is becoming easier I will see you next Wednesday for an update.

So, I decided to document my 12- week weight loss journey for my POETS! My brand is my openness, so I wanted to let you all in on this very personal journey. I battled obesity since childhood and at the age of 27 decided to undergo gastric bypass weighing in at 350 at my heaviest. I also battled hypertension, type 2 diabetes, depression, and sleep paralysis. I lost over one hundred pounds, but still struggle to my goal weight of 180 (I’m 5’10…..so that is 150 in the skinny bish vocabulary! So, journey with me and I pray it inspires you to fight towards yours weight loss dreams! Lets kick obesity’s ASS!

It has been sometime since I wrote a personal poem…………..and posted it! My inspiration behind this poem was after a total, emotional breakdown. I picked up my pen and this came out!
Have your foot ever dangled off the LEDGE, entertaining the thought of letting go? You then attempt to maneuver your body backwards to secure both feet on solid ground. On the quest to stand upright, your eyes fixate on the sky and in that moment……
You begin to remember where your help comes from. The sweet aroma of your faith jogs your memory. You remember the EXPERIENCE. You remember the DRY PLACES. You remember the VICTORY. The interruption in your peace becomes bearable and you begin to feel the SHIFT. Your DISCONNECTION becomes healing because you hear ONE voice, the same voice you thought was silenced…..never to return. You found the GOD within yourself once again……
Am I slipping again?
I can’t get a good footing on this floor
I try to get a firm grasp on anything in my reach
But objects are pulling away
The harder I work to stay upright
I faster I spiral downward
My ambition is in vain
Now my body lies in isolation
I hear the thump of my heartbeat
It’s the intense sense of terror
My mind tells me to run, but my physical body does the complete opposite
I’m paralyzed, as if some force is holding me captive
I go to scream your name because I can actually see you trying to reach me
Nothing escapes from my lips
Have you every been prisoned to your own body and prayers was the only thing you could articulate through your mind
So, I scream without a voice
I punch without a swing
I refuse to give up and die without a fight
The moment I get weary, I stop and BEG for all mercy
Like salvation, I’m released
I can move again
I swallow before speaking…..
Then, I live
Always ready to fight
Ready to trust
Ready to forgive
Ready to learn
Ready to share
Ready to surrender…..to the truth
I summit to you
I thank everyone who read my art
I love you all
I don’t know who this is suppose to help and heal. I woke up this morning and started the day with my normal meditation. Shortly after I set my intentions, lit my candle and sage; tears gushed down. I actually heard my tears hit my yoga mat and I just allowed God to speak to my soul. I just kept thanking him for the intense, powerful experience the night prior conversing with an old friend. We shared secrets, things we both have been carrying that kept us burdened. I felt truly released!
I don’t mean to get deep, I just know this can resonate with someone’s spirit!
Excuse my appearance, I rolled out of bed and straight to my meditation altar!
God bless you all and let’s continue to let God work through us! #Godthroughme #Godthroughyou
