Drop it Like its Hot: The First Ten Pounds

July 6 2009 | CeCe Olisa

So, last night I got an email from my friend Zora.

Here are the photos from last night… enjoy!

I clicked on the attachments and to my dismay, the photos were less than “enjoyable”. My face looked so full, my jaw line all but disappeared. My arms looked huge! And although the dress I had on was flattering, it still didn’t hide my stomach as much as I thought it did.


I know I will probably never have a body like Heidi Klum, but I’ve been smaller than this in the past and I really need to get back to that. This morning I went back to my commitment to drop this weight. I set my alarm for 5:45am so that I could do an hour of cardio.

Waking up early on a summer morning in New York City is actually quite nice. I decided to skip the gym and walk around the park instead, taking advantage of the hills and steps to increase my heart rate. I came home with plenty of time to get ready for work and have been in a good mood all morning.

My plan is to work out five mornings a week, so that I can drop 8-10 pounds in the month of July. I know I can do that (I’ve done it a million times before).

So, here I go once more… I’ll keep you posted!
