So ever since I turned 28 I have been struggling with my weight, mostly because I’m too lazy to continue to work out and stop eating badly. However, whenever I want to drop 10 pounds quickly. Sometimes I can do it in 10 days and depending on my motivation it may take 20. First and foremost please note these are all tips I have gotten from other people. None of these people are doctors or trained professionals just other women who like to keep their weight down.
Don’t come for me or my wig if this doesn’t work, I’m just a former stripper who likes to share methods. Not a trainer, doctor, I’m not even healthy. I’m just simply offering up some methods that I hope can help you, like they have helped me.
First of all, you are going to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. What I use as a counting method is drinking at least 4 bottles of water a day. I shoot for 5 but hey sometimes I miss my mark. Strictly no meats other than chicken or fish. No sugars, that is cakes, breads, ice cream, LIQUOR, nothing. I only eat 1000 calories a day. To help with this I buy weight watchers or lean cuisine type of tv dinners. In between these, if I get hungry I snack on fruits and veggies. To add flavor try organic peanut butter, or adding vinegar and a dash of salt to cut up cucumbers, onions and tomatoes. I also snack on nuts or a few slices of avocado, they contain oils that are good for stomach fat.
During this time I take some different supplements you can find at any GNC or similar store. Tonalin CLA, this helps with stomach fat and I take B-12. I take the kind that dissolves in your mouth. I also will get B-12 shots, you can google weight loss centers in your area to find places that have this service. Or try my favorite place Groupon. They often have deals.
Now thats half of your battle. The other half is actually working out. Now I’m going to tell you I hate the gym so I prefer to run. I find a park or a trail near my house, I run from 2-4 miles twice a day. If your time doesn’t allow two work outs substitute one with turning on some music and dancing for 30 to 45 minutes. IT IS VERY important that during any exercise you are wearing a work out sweat wrap. These can be found at walmart for under $10. You also need to buy a make-up remover called Abolene. Before you apply the wrap cake this substance all over the areas you want to lose weight. I put it on my stomach, thighs and back.
During this time I also use a laxative or colon cleanser to detoxify my body and rid myself of excess waste. I try to pick up 2 or 3 gym times or work out classes such as Zumba or Yoga. I guarantee if you stick to this program you will not only lose weight but feel better mentally. Running gives you time to clear your thoughts. I suggest running to some easy listening, or spiritually uplifting music.
This is not a continuous program, this is a diet program. After losing the desired weight you should resume back to a normal caloric intake and work out in moderation. I initially lost 42 pounds… I have gained weight back but I stay in the range between 165 and 170. This has been a year now. Hopefully this helps!! Stay healthy, blessed and fit.
I wish I could be more dedicated to blogging… Its semi-therapeuetc when I do it. I guess I need to become a little less of a procrastinator. We all have faults. Last year I was back and forth in a very toxic relationship filled with domestic violence. I will not put all the blame on him, I did my share of creating the confusion. However, sadly I refused to leave because I didn’t want to go back to stripping. I was staying in a relationship that was hindering the both of us, because I felt like all I could do was strip. Yes, that sounds ridiculous, but that was my reality. For one, I have a college education, a military background why would I think that stripping was my only alternative. I will tell you why, there is nothing in this world like getting fast money. Once you are in this lifestyle it takes you over and dominates your every thought. That is why so many women in this fast money lifestyle have a problem leaving and doing something else. Money controls your every move, you wont move unless money is the motivating factor. Now you might say, Whats wrong with that? There is a lot wrong with that, you should do things from the kindness of your heart. Not because you expect anything in return. But, I have side tracked let me bring you back to me, last year.
So I finally decided to leave. I packed up and came to Atlanta. Not sure why I picked Atlanta just needed to be away from Texas. It was here where I formed a relationship with God. Not that I didn’t go to church, or didn’t believe in God. I just had no real connection. I began looking for a job, and to no avail came up with nothing. My savings was depleting, and I began to think. I could hit up old dude, i’m sure he will fly me out and give me some money. I thought, well I could go out of town and strip and no one would know. All these thoughts circled my head, the thoughts that I felt was what I was used to. But, if I was in search of something new, a relationship with God I couldn’t just go back to that life. As hard as it was I put my entire trust in God, I promise it was very hard. But, thank God I prevailed. I engulfed myself in the Bible, attending church and in constant prayer. I fasted the entire month of January and came out of it feeling liberated.
I’m not perfect, no one is. I strive though daily, to attain peace of mind, to be a better person and allow God’s light to shine through me. I love the fact that God’s grace forgives me for living that life. But, I don’t judge people who do. I just pray they learn that isn’t the only way. Countless women have laid blueprints on how to be successful without losing your morals and degrading yourself. But, I really want to make a plea to the the women who are stuck and think they can’t do anything else. Yes, the money is great but peace of mind and an honest dollar is worth more than any Louis bag. All those material things fade, but building you and your inner self is worth more than gold. Don’t think you have to compete, and still be who you were when you danced. If you want to stop, do it. If you want to dance however, have a plan. You will be much older in life, than you will be younger. No matter who you are though, and what you do, you can still be better today than you were yesterday.
Never let your past define you, and never let anyone judge you for taking chances on faith. Religion created in me a renewed sense of purpose. My purpose like everyone else’s, is to be happy and give to others. I’m not going to be perfect in my walk of faith. But, I can say that for ME God has showed me enough to stay on this path to seeking wisdom. I look forward to growing and being a better person. Be blessed.
I know the title says “Strippers” but this is really for any chick marketing her body for money. How can you get naked just to be getting naked? You should have some sort of plan. That way you don’t end up like many women still dancing at 40. Choose to go to school get a trade, even something as siple as paying off your car. You want to be able to accelerate to a greater career path.
This video is just a series of videos, I will be doing. So stay tuned, SUBSCRIBE on Youtube and peep the blog. Have a great day!!
TLC’S NEW SERIES “STARTER WIVES CONFIDENTIAL” PREMIERES TUESDAY, JANUARY 29 AT 10PM
On Tuesday, January 29 at 10pm ET/PT, TLC reveals the fascinating and controversial world of celebrity ex-wives and ex-girlfriends with the new series STARTER WIVES CONFIDENTIAL. Each hour-long episode shares the lives of seven women who supported their former husbands/boyfriends before the fame and wealth made them the men they are today. They devoted their time, money, and support to the men they loved. Now, these women are working on moving forward and starting over on their own, with a new focus on creating a path in life that will give themselves and their children the security and success they know they deserve.
The cast includes:
Zakia Baum: Ex-girlfriend of Jermaine “Maino” Coleman; mother of his son.
Cheryl Caruso: Ex-wife of mobster Phillip Caruso, and mother of his 2 daughters.
Josie Harris: Ex-girlfriend of Floyd Mayweather; mother of his three children.
Monica Joseph-Taylor: soon to be ex-wife of Aston “Funkmaster Flex” Taylor; mother
to his two children.
Liza Morales: Ex-girlfriend of Lamar Odom; mother of his three children.
Tashera Simmons: Ex of Earl “DMX” Simmons; mother of four of his children.
At first I was a little skeptical about the whole show but, after I did some investigating about the women involved, I am kind of curious. The women involved were all down since day one. They were the women who held their men down, not some groupies they picked up along the way. From radio personalities, to boxers these are an array of women who live normal lives with Celebs as the men in their lives. I definitely will be tuned in to see what happens.
Artist S. Fresh is leading the way this last quarter with the launch of his Good Life Mob clothing, He has also had an array of hostings across the southern region. No suprise here, since he is pushing a “Red Cup” movement in Texas. His mixtape Red Cups and After Partys is still available on Datpiff.com and a lot of gals are liking the “Exotic” track.
Take a look at his visit during his Red Cups and After Partys release across the 3rd Coast.
Not new to city to city traveling, artist S.Fresh hit Lousiana Thanksgiving night to perform at Warehouse. Then Dallas Friday at Glass. The rapper brought along his DJ. The infamous, Dj Asap (106 n Park). With Red Cups and After Party’s making a wave the artist is still promoting his single “Like Me” as well as his GLM brand.
The awesome Neyo was in attendance for his Lousiana trip. There were some big people in the building. S.Fresh has a series of Vlogs of his promo tour for the release of Red Cups and After Partys’ on his YouTube. Check out the one from Housto,n on the video below.
According to TMZ. Katt Williams is going Koo Koo for Cocoa Puffs. Apparently on the 16th of November, the comedian jumped into the crowd, got naked, and some other things.
Was he on a Molly? I’m not sure what exactly is going on, but this is just one of the long string of events that have been going. I hope that if he needs to hit rehab, he does. It would be such a waste to write off a great comic. I leave you with one of the comic’s better moments.
Artist Sadie Hawkins is definitely pushing to make her voice heard. Just recently seen in the studio with super producer Sony Digital, the SC native now in Atlanta, is putting in work. Still riding the success of Girl Interrupted with Dj Scream, she sits “Cocky” waiting for her chance to really take on the Atlanta seen. I personally have NOT seen any other females in the Atlanta area able to really compete. Maybe you have seen something I haven’t. (Don’t forget to quote me)
With some major things about to pop next quarter. make sure you are keeping glued to what Sadie has next. Follow her on Twitter.
