How Low Can You Go

I Write About My Health Because…

>> Wednesday, April 4, 2012

Today, I am supposed to free write about the above for 15 minutes. I write about my health because...there are others like me, who I can learn from and who can learn from me. I write about my health because...one of the leading killers of black women is heart disease. I write about my health because...the term 'thick' can only take you so far. At some point in my life I have to come to terms that I may be big and sexy, but I am not healthy. I may be comfortable in my own skin, but I am not healthy, I may rock the hell out of any outfit, but I am not healthy. I write about health because...I want others to know that yes, you can be over 200 pounds and run a 5k, 10k and half marathon all in the same year. You can run a half marathon one year after you could only run for one minute. You can do 30 hot yoga classes in 30 days and live to tell the tale. I write about health because...I love my blog readers, they make me smile, they make me laugh. They push me when I want to give up, they give me inspiration when I do give up. I write about health because...this is MY space to vent, share, brag and say what I want when I want. When I write here it makes me accountable, no one can take this away from me. Once the words are dropped onto the screen the serve as footprints. I write because... I can.
