Aiming For Gr8ness

Updated: Nov 11, 2020

Staring down at the scale and I cannot believe I’m over my 200lb mark for the 100th time this year. Now, if you’ve read my previous post, you know that I’ve accused my husband for more than 90% of my weight gain. When in actuality he may only be reliable 40%.... alright, alright, 20%.... Okay ok, let me explain…

When it comes to food, I may have a sick obsession, some may even call it an addiction. You see me …. I love food…. No, I’m not over exaggerating… I really love food. You ever heard the simile when someone compares their love for something, and say they love it like a fat kid loves cake…. Well, Hi!! I’m the fat kid they are referring to, and no one loves anything more than I love cake… okay, as I wipe the drool dripping on the side of my lips as I think about cake… Over the year, I have found many coping mechanisms to stop my overeating. Like watching numerous of episodes on TLC about morbidly obese people and how they let their weight get out of hand. Yes, I'm talking about shows like my 600lb Oh, and I almost forget to mention my lack of self-control. I’m usual on, what most people would call a “see food diet". No, you didn’t read it wrong. I’m allergic to almost all sea food except for fish, so my diet goes something like “if I see food, I eat”, hence my "see food diet". I know what a lot of you are thinking… “oh, but you work out every day, and sometime twice a day.” This my friend is true. It crazy, because just as much as I love to eat, I love to workout. My love for fitness started with the love I acquired for my husband. If there is anyone that can get me to move my body, it’s him! If you’re in Miami and you’ve never worked out with “Coach Ace”, then you never worked out with someone with electrifying energy. You know the energy that's so contagious that it gets you to move whether you want to or not. That "you walk in dead, and leave hype", screaming at the top of your lungs “TURN DOWN FOR WHAT!!!” Seriously, I don’t know where he gets the energy from sometimes. He's the type of person that goes to bed at 12am and wakes up at 4:30am to train his client. The craziest part is when I catch him jumping up from his sleep to look at the time. Why is he looking at the time? Because he thought of some crazy workout in his dream, and now he fears of oversleeping.... Like really?!? LOL... How can you not love working out with a person like that? Also, due to him training more hour of the day then I would like, that's my way to steal some of his time without him knowing (lol). Well, I guess now you know the real, real reason I have more cushion then I need, and hopefully me writing make it clear to me that I may in fact have a problem, or an infatuation with food, or whatever you want to call it. As many famous people have stated, admitting you have a problem is always the first step. In reality, I don’t think nothing is wrong with starting over. In the words of Albert Einstein “You never fail until you stop trying”, so If you're unsatisfied with the way you look then keep aiming for your goal body. Who cares if it’s your 3rd time, 100th time, or even you 1,000,000th time trying to lose weight. It’s your body and as long as you’re determined…. SKY IS THE LIMIT… let’s keep aiming for GREATNESS!!!
