Dear Extra Pounds, We need to talk!

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Dear excess pounds, it's been fun. Over the years we've had some highs and lows. Do you remember that AMAZING buffet with the sweet potato rolls and honey butter? Or our 3am trips to the diner for the lumberjack special? And let's not forget the time we enjoyed half a coconut cake in one sitting? Oh, the memories. Yet, there have been difficult times as well. We've broken up and somehow made up far too many times for my comfort. (There's only so much grapefruit juice a girl can stand!).

I suppose it's finally time we had "the talk." So here goes. It's not you, it's me. I've realized that my lack of focus and confidence led me to stay in this relationship far longer than necessary. I know this parting will be tough and there will be many a tear and temptation ahead. I'm fortunate that my friends in Navy will be there to support me as I resist the urge to go running back into your arms. But trust me. In the end, we'll both be better off. I don't regret the time we shared - the lessons learned made me who I am today.

I wish you all the best in your next relationship. May you rediscover the joy we once had and I will do the same.

All my love,

    Don't worry about them, they'll be in good company with all the pounds we've already kicked to the curb :)
