So I remember this day very well. I was working as a proctor for the ACT at my high school alma mater to make a little cash because I was a sophomore in college. Let’s be honest, those are the brokest days of your life.
After finishing that, I planned to go tailgate before the first home game at Southern University with my then boyfriend and his friends.
I just have a few questions about this entire picture though…
Where are my eyebrows?
Why did I wear that lil tiny azz bow?
Where are the rest of my clothes?
Lawd I look like you could just stick in a pin in me and I’d burst. But you couldn’t tell me I wasn’t fine!
This picture gives me motivation today to not go back to this size. Because this journey to a healthier lifestyle is hard!
Sometimes I ask myself is it worth it? I mean folks are out here drinking tea, getting their stomach cut in half, going to Dr. Miami and finding other methods to lose their weight. Here I am eating 1500 calories a day and sweating like a racehorse.
But then I scroll down my Facebook memories and see pictures like this…
Here I am 6 years later, living in Dallas on my own. My face is soooo much slimmer. My eyes have completely transformed and you can see my bone structure.
