Well basically the Africa on my back represents home, one’s roots, remembering where you came from, your ancenstry, the continuous stuggle, etc. The leopard spots on the inside…well I’ve always loved leopard print I wear it all the time and I think leopards are beautiful animals and in Africa leopards represents ferocity , the Great Watcher, and courage. The Great watcher because the leopard spots sometimes look like eyes so yeah they call them the Great Watcher, and that I am a watcher, and observer of damn near everything. Also like a leopard I’m quiet, and pretty laid back until I’m ready to strike.

Poor Me …Im Overweight…Sike!

I have a huge gripe against the outreach methods of Herbalife…now outreach is a large part of my job so I know what its like being passed over or given attitudes on these mean streets of the Bronx…trust me I know…I work with hormone crazed pregnant women so you try stopping one of them to talk about prenatal care on a 110 degree day….

ANYWAY 
Back to the Herbalife dudes who always feel the need to chase me down blocks frantically waving a flyer about……*Drum roll*

LOSING 20 LBS IN A WEEK…yes I am aware of the Kanye caps!!! My coworker had to stop me from getting in the face of the poor outreach worker who was just doing their job…I stepped to him and asked why are you targeting me??? Huh?  Why?…he didn’t even speak English all he knew was that I was not a size 4…so in his mind he’s thinking “Big Girl attack attack!!!”

I take offense due to the fact that everyone is not targeted. All of these people on this busy block…and you run to me??? Yes I am “bigger” than what is the celebrated  vision of beauty  you know slim and Svelte or small in the waist fat in the ass. I am thick with full breasts and thighs…the only time I have trouble is when I am trying on clothes because all women of color have trouble in that Department…I hate being called plus sized because that trigger mental images about Lane Bryant  and Ashley Stewart and I def don’t fit those clothes….

ANYWAY (I’m ranting)

So my question is does society attribute being unhappy with being overweight? When I walk down the block with my music blasting feeling like the baddest bitch ever. Today I wore a fitted Leopard print dress with Teal pumps….I easily out dress the smaller girls and get this these are the same girls who can shop in any store…its me who have issues shopping. I feel like Brick house…a Bad Mama Jama…I feel great in my skin. I am proud of how I look…most days I even feel sexy…I workout quite often whether its boxing, Kickboxing, belly dancing, yoga or Pilates I am one of the fittest thick girls you may ever meet…so why are you outwardly targeting me with weightloss schemes assuming that I am sad and oppressed because I wear a larger size?

For months I have designed this tattoo and finally it’s permanently indented in my skin. After my senior year I know that I will be making major changes to improve my life and get my future started. This tattoo reminds me that I have the strength to carry on no matter what obstacles get in my way. I’ve faced many challenges in my life but that doesn’t mean my task of pushing on has stopped. In fact now that I’m finally getting close to beginning my own life my determination to succeed has only grown.

Fear & Success..Can They Exist Together?

Have you ever had a point in your life when everything was going extremely well? Its like you adopted a fairy Godparent or rubbed a lamp and a blue genie w/ a gold earring appeared. Check me out…I am working a job that is in my field so my BS [degree] isn’t just that…Get this I ACTUALLY LIKE my job…I recently gained acceptance to a graduate school program AND I am able to do something I haven’t done in almost 3 yrs…yea you guessed it GO TO THE DOCTOR. I’m over here tip toeing to the podium to thank the academy for their support and to shout our my mama and God… QUESTION:Why am I tip toeing instead of running to accept my recent good fortune?? Because I am secretly waiting for the shoes to drop…for the music to start to skip…I can’t help but wonder is there some crazy event in my fate that would lead my loved ones to be interviewed on the 10 o’clock news expressing how I had such a promising future?? *knocks on wood 3 times*..I am extremely proud of myself and would love to run jump and dance so why the apprehension?? Don’t judge my honest feelings..some may say shut up and enjoy it and don’t question anything. My big Sis from another Miss helped to ease my thoughts by saying that I am finally reaping what I sowed and just because I got to this level does not mean to take a “vacation” but to just simply “keep sowing”. It was beautifully said and will stay with me forever! Everything is making sense I hustled the system, a skill I honed during my undergraduate experience. I networked like I was a hungry *walker* on “The Point” (Hunts Point). And held down a job while calling in sick/reduced my work hrs just to volunteer or intern. Everything is coming full circle but the game hasn’t been won…I did not jump on Koopa’s head and rescue the princess. There is so much ground that I have yet to leave a foot print on..words that I have not yet read. I am celebrating my success with a small party. What the hell! As I two step and sing along with the sweet music that is playing I must remember to not get too twisted off of the red bull & vodka or too tired from dancing the until the birds start chirping because I have so much more to plan and execute. Not bad for a 24 yr old..God please continue to guide me.

These bags are so sweet I want to just take a bite…but im sure they would def leave teeth marks in my bank acct lol
