Missing Friends

Monday, December 13, 2010

Dear Willpower,

I've noticed you've left and taken Self-Esteem with you. Was it the cold weather coming that drove you away? Whatever the reason, I've been missing you something fierce...

Since you've been gone I've sunk pretty low. I'm eating bad foods and too much of them and my treadmill sits lonely in the corner. I crave carbs and sweets and give in too easily, and even inspirational quotes can't seem to pull me out of this funk. I've even gained back and added a little extra, which makes me very sad.

Will you be coming home soon? I miss your determination and your strong "NO" to my snacking. I miss Self-Esteem's kind words when I look in the mirror and feel Depression pulling me down. We started out successful, the three of us, losing 3 pounds together before you left. We can do it again, I promise! Won't you come home to where you belong?

Your loving friend,

    I am starting fresh. I have a new challenge for myself. Now that my foot is out of that lousy cast, I have to make up some lost ground.

    So I came up with 9 weeks, 18 pounds. That's only 2 pounds a week. I can do this and so by my birthday I will be much lighter and much healthier.

    Just turn over a new leaf and grab a positive attitude and go right for the goal. Focus and don't let anybody or anything get in the way! You can do this! We can do this together!!! -shari

    GREAT SELF TALK. You are incharge, and you can walk away without depression. Grab self esteems hand, pull willpower along for a healthy future.

    We are here for you. Tonight @ 8pm I will be walking, on the treadmill set at 20 minute miles, I really hope that you join me and watch a great memory from your childhood. I have recorded Christmas Town, can not wait to hear "Put one foot in front of the other and soon you will be walking out the door".

    Now lock the door to temptation, because he is lurking around every corner right now.
