Y’all… I am soooo tired.


I’m sooooo tired of featuring celebrities as “fit chicks.”

Actually, let me not lie. I’m not tired of featuring them… I’m just tired of the fact that so many of them go into hiding and then appear as their all-new “in-shape” selves. The only celebrity I can consistently count on to show herself at her best and her sweatiest, right now, is Mo’Nique… and I can’t feature her every day.

And, yes… that’s Mo’Nique. Up there. A sweaty, fit-focused mess.

So… I’m asking you, lovely ladies of BGG2WL – show your family (that’s all of us) what you look like at your sweatiest, your eww-iest, your goo-iest! Show us you, in mid-deadlift! Show me your screenshots of the treadmill! Show me your beat up running shoes! Show me how much weight you’re jerking! (Pause?) Show me what you’ve got!

Take pictures, and send them to me at erika@blackgirlsguidetoweightloss.com, upload them to your instagram and mention my username (@bgg2wl) or tweet them to me at @bgg2wl! I’ll be doing a weekly post of all you lovely fit chicks, because it’s far more likely that watching you work will be more motivating and inspiring than anything else. It’s great to see celebs get in shape and stay that way, but it’s even better to see the fit chicks talking about how they do it in your own back yard!
