A "Dear John" Letter...
Saturday, May 28, 2011
Dear Belly Fat,
I know we’ve been together for a very long time; in fact you’ve been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Through triumphs and heartaches, trials and tribulations, you’ve been there for me. No matter how hard I’ve tried to be independent you always found a way to stick around. It got to the point that I didn’t think I could survive without you.
I guess that’s why it’s so hard for me to tell you this. For some, writing you this letter might be a little impersonal. Others might see this as a last ditch effort to talk myself out of what I’m about to tell you. But here it goes…
That’s right - I’m asking you to leave.
No…wait a minute.
I’m TELLING you to leave.
Yes, that’s better.
It’s time that we part ways, never to see each other again. I know - you’ve heard this from me before - many times. And you know that I wasn’t strong enough to survive on my own, so I always came crawling back to you. But that was then; this is now.
What has changed? Me. I’ve changed. Over the past year I have become stronger in many facets of my life. I must admit, you were a clever one; feeding off of my low self-esteem, pretending to be my friend. But I found something, hidden in a shoe box, among the dust. I found my spark. With that spark came great responsibility, accountability, and inner peace.
No matter how hard you try, you will NOT take that away from me. I have worked way too hard and have come such a long way to give into your ways again. Enough is enough.
Please do not try to contact me, as I will not answer your calls of temptation.
You are now on permanent call block.

PS: it’s not you…it’s all about ME!
