THE SKIN I LIVE IN; 100 POUNDS & DOWN! Day 12

  The Skin I Live In : The Sh*t Burgers Will Make You Do! What do you get when you cross a McDonald’s drive thru, a late night taco spot and a 24 hours Rally Burger?  Baaaaaaabi! Let me tell you! An episode of magnanimous proportion!  Oh! Tonight…was no F’ing joke.  Fits, fights and a whole damn break down.  Found myself in a corner parking lot having to pull it together!!! Oh, I can laugh now, but at the time, I truly felt that life had something against me.  There I was, on the Battle Field as…

THE SKIN I LIVE IN; 100 POUNDS & DOWN! Day 11

  The Skin I Live In – Day 11: Emotional EatingEmpty, Worthless, Tired, and Weak; unfortunately this is how I’m feeling tonight. I’m lonely and uncovered and seeking something bigger, greater and fuller than my understanding. I wish I could say that the feeling is about a plate or some rich food I wish I could eat, but it’s not. I’m feeling this way, I believe because I’m transitioning into a space that I’ve never been in before, something I’ve never seen. But isn’t this space the place of new-birth? A place of surrender, no strength, no masks,…

THE SKIN I LIVE IN; 100 POUNDS & DOWN! Day 10

  The Way You Look Tonight Back in 2008 before I started my weight loss journey I’m sitting here on the side of my bed with a full heart. I guess when I started this weight loss journey I hadn’t considered how many people may be feeling just like me, or how I felt before I started. Look, I have no secret weapons; I have no tricks or lies to give you. I’m a 35-year-old man who just wants to see life longer. I read a couple comments posted to my blog and I began to weep, not…

THE SKIN I LIVE IN; 100 POUNDS & DOWN! – Day 9

  I’d Rather Have A Mood Swing Than Swing On You Just another day in LA; Gym, rehearsal, studio and filming… sounds like fun, I know; but having a to do all of that and balance your blood sugar can be a task. Preparation is my new thing. I’m not so disciplined, and if I’m honest…I’m not disciplined at All, lol. I’m getting the hang of it though. Nightly I set up my supplement pocket case, I prepare my breakfast smoothie and try to plan out what I’ll eat for lunch and dinner the next day. Sounds like…

THE SKIN I LIVE IN; 100 POUNDS & DOWN! – Day 8

  Abraham McDonald Day 8Monday morning, up and at uhm! It’s a beautiful Cali day, feeling good in my hood. It’s funny the things you learn about yourself when your daily rituals change. And I mean you learn fast too! I’m not so nice when I’m really hungry. Lol. For years I’ve been able to work the entire day without any grumbles or hunger pains, no fussing or fighting; but now when I’m hungry the boxing gloves come out. At first I thought I was imagining things; “I couldn’t be This upset over who moved the spoon”…

THE SKIN I LIVE IN; 100 POUNDS & DOWN! – Day 5

  Thank God for the inner voice that matters so much to personal strength. Today has been a test in and out. From sun up to sun down I have had every temptation presented my way. Like most people I’m accustomed to the foods and daily eating habits I learned as a child. As I’m unlearning those inset habits I’m seeking out new ones it’s clear that I can’t take something away without putting something new in. I have to laugh at myself because I realize how “profound” I appear to be at this moment. But had you seen…

THE SKIN I LIVE IN; 100 POUNDS & DOWN! – Day 4

  Setting the tone for weight loss success has a lot to do with personal attitude. I’ve been readjusting my attitude a lot lately. I’ve had the opportunity to do a lot of cool things, meet a lot of cool people and see a bunch of cool places. But in all of that, the hustle, the pressure of living I’m seeing now that I have not always had my ears, eyes or heart open for that matter, I have not always been “Present” as my sis Niecy Nash would say…” baby, Stay Present! Being that I’m on the tightrope…

THE SKIN I LIVE IN; 100 POUNDS & DOWN! – Day 3

  Becoming the Change YOU want to see. One of the fastest things I’m learning as I take on the DHERBS Full Body Cleanse is well, hell; it really does cleanse you, mind, body and even connecting with your Master Love Source. Day three is feeling good, but like most working people, Wednesday is hump day and it was definitely that for me! I started the day a lil different today, as my spirit was low. I had to find that one thing that could ignite my daily staying power. Why was my spirit low you ask, cause today…

THE SKIN I LIVE IN; 100 POUNDS & DOWN! – Day 2

  I saw a movie with Antonio Banderas recently, the premise was, well, crazy as hell. But it did leave a lingering notion to ponder. If I could be anyone else, who would I be? If I could change any body parts, which would I choose? The more I thought about the “modern” world with all of its cutting and changing of sorts, bleeding to be someone you weren’t born to be… I decided! Yes, there are changes that need to be made, some shape shifting that needs to happen but more than any of those thoughts was the…
