I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter and make believe it came from you How many of you remember that old song? Seems like centuries ago that it came out. On my way to work yesterday (an hour ride), this tune just popped into my head and it gave me an idea for this blog. Many years ago, I did write myself a letter when I was trying to decide what to do for a stressful and unhappy marriage I was in. One day, I took a pad of paper and a pen and wrote down all my feelings. The Pros and Cons of the situation.
Yesterday, I did the same thing. I wrote down the Pros of staying on my diet and exercising and then the Cons of stopping trying to lose weight.
Pros -- Wear smaller size clothes, be able to do more physical things, have good reports from the doctor, build my self esteem and look good.
Cons - Gaining more weight, joints aching even more, not wanting to do anything, having to buy larger clothes and not having any self esteem.
I then wrote this letter to myself:
Dear Georgann, What is more important to you? Sitting at the computer and playing games or being healthy? You know that you need to get up and move!! Just 15 minutes of Walk Away The Pounds and you know you feel good all day and are burning calories!! The people who design the games do not care if you are fat!! They care about getting you addicted to the games. Are you going to let them have that much hold on you? You control your life not them. Get up and get moving to a healthier life. (I did do 15 minutes of exercise). Signed Georgann
