Foods where should I start , its heaven for me . A day can’t pass without food ,so I want to share some of my favorite recipes with everyone that loves to eat as much as me. I love eating chocolate, pizza , fried chicken , curry mutton ackee , I really love island foods as well. I know all the foods I just listed makes you gain weight but you could change it up , mix it up a little. I eat chicken with tomatoes and carrots. Ackee and dumpling are very tasty together I eat this every Wednesday well almost unless something very important came up . Food that’s my life it could make you die and it makes you live . I am a very weird person with a fun personality . My friends love me almost as much on how I love  food ,tips to you all eat healthy , this doesn’t mean the food has to taste bad . I taught so at first but when I made my own little creative way of food it tasted awesome . My first bite was wonderful I felt like I was flying . The mutton and calla-loo rice I made was very delicious from that moment on up to this very day I still make my own creative food . I would love to open a restaurant one day , a dream come true that would be .I know that I will shine with my recipes some day.

Why I Loved Watching Spongebob When I Was Over Weight But I Wasn’t The best For Me

I don’t  watch cartoons anymore but when I was younger I really loved watching them . My favorite cartoon was Spongebob it made me feel good it gave me a lot of jokes . I felt like myself when I was watching it . I know most of the times on Spongebob it’s an episode where he was working in the Krusty Krab  and from you hear the word Krusty Krab you know you are going to see a nice juicy Krabby Patty . When I saw the Krabby Patty my mouth was running water , almost like a waterfall . I loved watching Spongebob but it just made me so hungry and by the blink of an eye I cleaned  out the fridge , I was addicted to Spongebob . I couldn’t help myself , I tried to not to eat every time I saw the Krabby Patty but it was so hard .I know this didn’t really cause me to gain a lot of weight but it was bad for me .I know advertisements on tatsy foods could make me hungry too but not like how the Krabby Patty made me feel , something was seriously wrong with me. My mother tried to make me stop but not even she could do it . This cause me  to gain 83 pounds. I finally stopped watching but its was really hard for me food was my  addiction but Spongbob just made its worst. I am now healthy and fit , I only eat good food now and only good , I would never let myself behave like that in a lifetime.

I am a very fun and active person .When I was over weight I felt horrible ,I couldn’t jump so high and run so fast that was hell for me every morning I struggled to get  out of bed . It took a very longtime for me to accept myself I didn’t think that one day I would be fit and healthy . Everyday I  cried myself to sleep while eating pizza or ice-cream , I knew I would gain more weight by doing this its just that I couldn’t help myself . I really loved food there can’t be a time when I am not eating. I really looked into myself one day and asked myself what am I doing to myself you still can lose weight without exercising everyday . I made my own type of foods which was healthy and still delicious , I tried this for a year and I lost a lot of pounds . I told my other friends and they tried it too . It totally helped them I felt so good inside.Jumping was not an issue and I ran faster than I could even imagine . I love eating good foods that’s the better way to do it . Try it at least.

I love eating healthy foods but it has been forever since I last ate a pizza . I was just saying one day of eating pizza wouldn’t hurt , well I was so wrong . I ordered the $10 dinner box I waited till about an hour and that was hell for me it felt like getting slapped in the face a thousand times with an ax. They finally came I ran to the door as fast as I could , I was so hungry at that moment , if they didn’t have any pizza I would probably eat them alive .I ordered 5 boxes .it was so wrong for me but I just couldn’t help myself it only was for one day anyways.I took up a slice and by the blink of an eye the first box was finished .I moved on to the second and then the third soon I reached the fifth box . I slowly took I bite and my heart started hurting . I fell to the floor when I woke up I was in the hospital with my mother by my side . I found out I had diabetes , I started to cry but everyone kind of saw that coming from that day I start to eat only healthy foods that I made . I swore I would never eat fatty and unhealthy foods again. Good eats always , so I made my own healthy pizza it tasted much better.
