I am not the kind of person who deprives herself of tasty treats. I am the opposite of that person. Even if I'm trying to lose weight, or get in better shape, I will not give up eating a piece of chocolate, if I want it. Which brings me to this:
A few weeks ago, I decided to do a cleanse. I've heard people say stuff like"Cleanses are stupid." "Your body doesn't need to be cleansed." Etc. They're probably right. But guess what? I didn't even care what these people said. I wanted to try one. So I did.
I haven't been shy about admitting that Mista T. and I have gained a few lbs. since getting married. From December to May I gained about eight. Not too alarming, but not something I was happy about. This little cleanse sucked out all of that fat, and made me feel real good inside.
If you want more information on what I did, let me know. It wasn't even hard.
I hate that working out and eating healthfully has been so associated with weight loss in the media. Because, guess what? I don't even care if I lose any more weight. If someone walked up to me today, and said that they think I need to lose weight, yeah, I'd probably be sad. But I'd also tell them they are stupid--because I'm mostly happy with my body. I just want to feel good inside. I want to take good care of myself. I want to be the best Chelsea I can be. Am I full of cliches? Totally. But sometimes cliches are awesome.
