Letter to Self

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

I have been hard on myself for so long. I have been my own worst enemy. I have lived with chains of self-doubt, poor self image, and bad habits. I hid it so well. On the outside I appeared to be so "together," talented, and strong. Yes, I let my weight get out of hand, but I had everything else it seemed.
Thank you, God, for making me look at the hard truth. Thank you for making me face the demons of my past and giving me a health scare that made me evaluate where I am. Please help me as I dedicate myself to living a fuller life. I know I am 60 and have more life behind me than before me, but I will make the best of the life I have remaining.
I am so excited about how far I have come since January. Losing 45 pounds has given me more energy and stamina. I still have about 30 more pounds to go, but I know I can do it!! I am enjoying compliments on how I look. I am inspiring others to look at their health and determining to make changes. My husband and children are very proud of me. My blood pressure is back to normal.
I have lots of talents to share. I am stronger - mentally, spiritually, and physically. As I put away the self-doubt and put myself to the task of simplifying and de-cluttering my life, I know that I will be able to accomplish a lot in my last years. I am very excited at the prospect!
Thank you, God. I praise You with my life!!!
