WELL SPARK PEOPLE, I'M BACK & IT'S DEFINITELY BEEN A WHILE! (A LONG WHILE, TO TELL THE TRUTH). SOOO MUCH HAS CHANGED SINCE 2009.
ON 01/10/10, I MOVED FROM CHARLOTTE NC TO CHARLESTON SC TO START OVER, RE-INVENT, RE-DISCOVER & RE-INTRODUCE MYSELF TO, MYSELF (AFTER A HORRIFIC BREAK UP). IT WAS A STRESSFUL MOVE & NO ONE WAS HIRING. THEN IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR I FINALLY FOUND A JOB, WORKING FOR A "SLUM BOSS" THAT MADE MY LIFE HELL EVERY DAY, SO I TOOK UP WALKING JUST TO KEEP MY SANITY (BECAUSE QUITTING WAS NOT AN OPTION!) & AS A RESULT, I LOST A LOT A WEIGHT VIA MY "ME & GOD" TIME DISCOVERY-PRAYER WALKS EVERYDAY. I ACTUALLY GOT DOWN TO 176 LBS (I WAS SOOO PROUD OF MYSELF!!!).

THEN IN JUNE 2011, AFTER A SCARY REALISTIC NIGHTMARE, I AWOKE TO A PHONE CALL FROM MY DAD WHO HAD SUFFERED A MILD STROKE & WOUNDED UP GOING TO NJ FOR WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A WEEKEND TRIP, TO STAYING THERE FOR 10 MONTHS. I REMEMBER, THE DAY MY 3 OF MY YOUNGER SISTERS CAME UP TO VISIT MY DAD IN THE HOSPITAL & WHEN MY SISTER FELICIA SAW ME, SHE IMMEDIATELY BROKE OUT IN TEARS FROM ALL THE WEIGHT LOSS (THAT'S WHAT REALLY SOLIDIFIED IT FOR ME). EVERYONE JUST SUNG MY "PRAISES", IT FELT GREAT.

AFTER ABOUT A MONTH, LIVING IN A PLACE WHERE I KNEW NO ONE, HAD NO SOCIAL LIFE, OTHER THAN GOING TO PHYSICAL THERAPY, DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS & BEING MY DAD'S PERSONAL DRIVER. I WAS BORED TO DEATH, NO FRIENDS, DATING, ANYTHING! I DIDNT EVEN HAVE, ME TIME OR ANY KIND OF PRIVACY (MY LIFE CONSISTED OF MY DAD & STEP MOM, ONLY). I MEAN, NO DATING, MENTAL OR, PHYSICAL STIMULATION WHAT-SO EVER! "MY" LIFE HAD STOPPED COLD TURKEY!
SO, NEEDLESS TO SAY, THE WEIGHT, STARTED CREEPING BACK ON... I SAW IT, BUT I COULDNT STOP IT!

BY THE TIME APRIL OF 2012, MY DAD GOTTEN BETTER (GOD IS SOOO GOOD!) HE WAS EVEN DRIVING AGAIN, SO IT WAS TIME TO GET MY LIFE BACK HIT THE ROAD ONCE AGAIN; FROM THERE, I DECIDED TO MOVE TO APEX NC (I FELT THE NEED TO BE BY MYSELF, FOR SOME MUCH NEEDED, REAL ALONE BY TIME THEN!
JUST PICTURE IT, A 41 YEAR OLD WOMAN, LIVING WITH HER "PARENTS" 24/7 & SLEEPING ON THE LIVING ROOM COUCH (W/NO PRIVACY OR MY PRECIOUS ME TIME). ONCE I MY PLANE TOUCHED DOWN, I FELT ALIVE, NERVOUS, EXCITED & INDEPENDANT ALL AT ONCE & STARTED LOSING THE WEIGHT AGAIN. I STAYED THERE FOR A YEAR, TIL I LOST MY JOB & WAS "FORCED" TO MOVE BACK TO MY HOME OF 16 YRS (CHARLOTTE). AND SINCE BEING HERE, I YO-YOED LIKE CRAZY!

JANUARY 2014 I STARTED LOSING THE WEIGHT AGAIN, ONCE MY SOCIAL LIFE PICKED UP SOME, SINCE THEN I DECIDED THAT MY "FRENEMY" WAS SOOO OVER RATED & DECIDED TO PUT TOXIC FOLKS ON ICE FOR GOOD & TO BE CELIBATE AGAIN (THIS TIME VOLUNTARILY) LOL...

IT IS NOW 04/30/14, (EXACTLY 2:19 AM) I HAVE BEEN A HERMIT FOR A GOOD WHILE NOW. I STOPPED BELIEVING IN PEOPLE & JUST STAY AWAY FORM THEM AT ALL COST. ONCE AGAIN I HAVE NO SOCIAL LIFE & HAVING TO LIVE IN A HOUSE W/ FAMILY (PUTTING MY ME TIME ON THE BACK BURNER ONCE MORE) & BECAUSE I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN AN EMOTIONAL EATER, (WHEN I FEEL GOOD, I LOSE & WHEN THINGS ARE BEYOND MY CONTROL OR MY LIKING, I GAIN) (SOMETHING I SOOO NEED TO STOP) I BEEN PUTTING ON WEIGHT AT A RAPID RATE & I'M SOOO DISAPPOINTED WITH MYSELF! IN FACT I'M A LITTLE EMBARRASED & ANGRY AS WELL.
I ALWAYS SAY WHEN YOUR SICK & TIRED, YOU'LL DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, SO LET MY FINGERS DO THE "WALKING" I GOT BACK ON SPARK PEOPLE THE NIGHT BEFORE & DECIDED, THAT IT MAKES NO SENSE FEELING BAD, WHEN ALL I REALLY NEED TO DO IS GET BACK ON THE PROVERBIAL WAGON & DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

I HAD TO REMIND MYSELF, THAT IF I DID IT BEFORE, I CAN DO IT AGAIN!... AND THIS TIME I WILL KEEP IT OFF FOR GOOD (YES, I'M SPEAKING IT INTO EXISTANCE)!

PEACE, LALA

Is to become totally active in other activities, I would love to try my hand @ kick boxing, boxing & raquet ball. i wnt to do things I have never done or felt like I couldnt do because of my size. & my last goal... I would like to have my own lounge club.

    Hi! Just stopped by to tell you that your page caught my eye. I loved reading what you had about remaking you into the person you know you can be!! I've just started a new spark team, Single lesbians of color, and that's the kind of stuff I want to be able to convey through the team concept. We are all on this journey, and it just makes sense to make the journey together, pulling each other along the way when necessary and giving those words of encouragement. I want to create a place where dialogue and sharing is important to everyone there. We've all got something beautiful within us to give. It's amazing, too, that when we give it, we get plenty back in return. Hope you stop by and share your wisdom. If nothing else, stop by my page and say hello!!

    Peace and blessings,

    LaShawn
