Dear Future Thinner Self
Wednesday, June 06, 2012
Just wanted to say Hi to my future thinner self. Hope you woke up this morning feeling fresh and alive today! When you got up from the bed that the pain you used to feel in your feet when you got up is gone? Did you notice that pain in your lower back is gone? And when you hopped into that shower did you look down to see much less flesh to wash? Were you amazed at the changes in your body and did you notice the muscular legs you now have? Did you reach up and feel your collar bone and your jawline that are no longer hidden by fleshy fat? The choices I make today are for YOU! Today I will strictly follow my plan so YOU will get to put on those smaller, cute clothes. Today I will swim my half mile when I don't feel like it so you will go jogging with your kids today and it won't hurt. Today I will forego the late night snack so you can go dancing with your husband! Today I will put on my swimsuit and brave the judgemental looks I get when I exercise at the gym so you can enjoy wearing the cute swimsuit while on a cruise with your husband. FTS you are amazing because you are the culmination of perseverence, action, and dependence on God. I look forward to emerging from this body of fat. I look forward to learning the lessons it takes to become you. I know I have a lot of work to do and a lot of patience and persistence to get there. See you then!
