Winter is just a memory and spring is near the end, summer is about to start! Sorry I wasted so much time when I should have been paying more attention to you, giving you the love and nurturing that you deserve. Seems that I have often put your needs behind the needs of everyone else in your life. You're busy, I get it, life doesn't care what it is that keeps you up at night, or the darts that life seems to shoot at you from all directions. Life doesn't care but I do.
I care that you get enough sleep, enough exercise, enough healthy foods to nurture you thru the storms of life. I care that you are not forgotten in the mix of things and that you show yourself some self-love and 'atta girls' and a pat on the back now then. You deserve that! I'm sorry I have spent so much of my time all these years ignoring you instead of listening and responding in a positive and healthy way.
Now begins the summer challenge! Naturally I hope to lose weight but even more so I hope to get tuned in to YOU. To let you know every day that I'm happy my body still works. I'm grateful that you've carried all this weight for me and allowed me to still walk and breathe on my own. You've done all you can and now it's my turn to take care of you!
At the end of this challenge I hope that you and I have become BFF's, that we trust each other and that we aren't afraid to show love and devotion to US. We are worth it!
See you in 11 weeks!
My mantra for this challenge:
''I must lose the weight
before it is too late''
