Ok, so the Biggest Loser Club challenge is to write a letter to our 16 year old selves. Here goes:
Guuuuuuuurl, all I can do is SMH (shake my head). You are a hott mess right now but let's not dwell on the negative.
You will mature, and you will grow...sooner than you think is possible. I'm just dropping by to give you some advice on health and fitness that you should take very seriously from this day forward.
You don't pay particular attention to your health yet, but you are healthy and aware of your weight. 130lbs isn't very heavy for most people, but you are short so you should be careful and not let that get too far away from where it is now. You don't know it yet, but this is YOUR ideal weight no matter what those charts say. The diets you've begun trying aren't worth your time and you should definitely NOT be trying those shakes and pills. You are so controlled with spending money, yet you're wasting it on that nonsense. You aren't even fat!
You know that sales lady in Saks that called her coworker over to show you off with your "perfect hour glass figure" as she called it? Well, she's right. Your body is awesome. If you take care of it now, you will appreciate it AND it will treat you well later. In a couple years you'll head off to college and learn ALOT of new information about health and fitness. At that time you'll stop eating meat, cheese, fries, chocolate and drinking soda. So unnecessary but being extreme the way you are, I know you're just rolling your eyes as I tell you this. LISTEN to me!
The key to good health is balance. So from this day forward I want you to focus on that. You're already very active. Balance that with healthy foods and you'll be golden. Stray from this path and you'll wish you'd listened to me. Most importantly, when you have your 2nd baby...(YES YOU WILL HAVE KIDS. DON'T INTERRUPT ME WHEN I'M TALKING.) Anyway, do not use that as a free pass to eat mess! You eat healthy and are very strict with the first baby, but you lose your mind with the 2nd one. WTF?! (I know you don't know what that means. It hasn't been invented yet. Stay with me. I'm serious here).
Get it together girl! Oh, and I know you aren't mushy right now, but as I said...you'll mature. So this is you, me, us saying we love you!
