Dear John Letter


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, January 26, 2013

Dear Cold Stone Creamery, Godiva Chocolatier, M&Ms, Papa John's Pizza, The Curry House, Rubio's, Marie Callender's; KFC; Carl's Jr. and all other food related e-mails I've subscribed to,

I've been ignoring your e-mails for the past 5 months, but you clearly can't take a hint. I'm not the girl I used to be. The one that used every coupon for free this or discounted that. (Yes, the old: it's not you, it's me bit.)
I'm breaking up with you because I'm with SparkPeople now. We've been on an amazing journey together since last August. The SparkPeople e-mails aren't bombarded with high calorie food 'deals' that will go straight to my hips and thighs. The e-mails motivate me, they're positive and uplifting, it's like having a cheerleader in my inbox everyday!
So consider this our last exchange.
I'll be unsubscribing shortly.
-Dee

    How come you get coupons and I don't? That's okay this is a purely retorical question not requiring an answer.

    Like a toxic boyfriend or husband, we do have to break off other love affairs. Like those with Reeses and Cheetos.

    Awesome Dee!! So glad this was voted in as a "Featured Blog" -- and love your take on it. I didn't have any subscriptions like emails to food places, but I can see how easily it could happen!

Be strong, be slim and trim, my friend! One of the best "Dear John" letters so far!

Hugs, Eve

    This is awesome. I was just thinking the other day I can't believe all of the "food" emails I had subscribed to... Dairy Queen, Arby's, Papa Murphy's... the list goes on... Your blog was perfect! Definitely how I felt when I was deleting mine the other day.

  Ahhh... you'll be back. A small proportion of weight loss successes transition to successful maintenance. The coupons are patient.

It will start out a quick grab because you're busy. And you can afford the calories because you're in maintenance.

Then a bite to eat or drink with friends; and its ok because you're in maintenance.

Then your friends and family complain you're too thin and are "concerned" about you. So you question what maintenance really means.

Yes, those coupons just have to wait a bit. Like the Terminator, You'll be Back.


(And I do wish you the best luck in your maintenance! Its been that type of struggle for me.)
