If I could write a letter to me

I am so proud of you for the efforts you are making to have a healthy life! I know you don't think it's THAT big of a deal and I know you are afraid you are going to fail. I wish you would believe that you've learned a lot since gaining the weight back. You are too hard on yourself! Look back at how drastically your life changed when you gained it...
You figured out how to be healthy living alone and you reaped the rewards. Remember how good it felt? Remember walking for hours a day, in the summer sun, listening to great music, exploring the town by foot? It felt GREAT! And what a hottie you became.
That's how you met Chris. Not just because you looked good - but because you radiated happiness. But - and here's the big but (no pun intended... love ya, sweetie, but you ain't got no butt!) your life turned upside down and sideways when he moved in. Your priorities changed. It took a while for you to figure out how to manage your life while other people competed for your attention.
That's OK! And you've learned from this. You are doing it right now - figuring out the balance. You can have family AND health. Keep up the good work, girl. Don't give up on yourself.
