FFF challenge letter to my future self

Friday, January 18, 2013

Dear Christine

so you've made the journey to a newer and slimmer you. Good for you ! wonderful! do you remember why and how you let yourself go before? How slowly over time you quit caring about your appearance? Even whether you were enjoying life or just watching it pass you by? don't ever go back........ don't take yourself for granted or the ability to do those small things you enjoy so much. Remember how depressed you felt? how hopeless? How you couldn't even clean the house without resting? Or bending down to tie your shoes left you breathless ? Even vacations were spent just watching ? not participating?

YOU have some great new great nieces and nephews that you want to spend some time
chasing around and playing with. YOU need to take care of you so you will be there to watch them grow.

Everyone says that only 5 % actually keep the weight off...... BE ONE OF THOSE !!
BE ever careful to keep the watch and not slip back to old habits!!! Make the change PERMANENT !!



SMILE deep and wide !!

Oh and I am so proud of you ....... You did it !!

    Love the letter idea! It is such an important part of making a change - to visualize yourself successful then to walk back through the journey - imagine each small step you took to get to success.

    One pound at a time, one meal at a time one workout at a time... every little thing adds up to success - you will be there soon.
    Always look ahead - and smile!

    You are a great, beautiful lady and an awesome Bahama Mama!
    I am really so very happy you are on the team.

    Thanks for you kind words on my letter, I appreciated them.
    It has been a tough road but as I move into my 50's
    next week, I shall do so with grace and dignity, for only the
    best of times are ahead.
