A Letter To My Nemesis

Dear Fat,
It has been 5 months now and 23 pounds of you is gone (yeah you snuck 2.5 pounds back last weigh in). I will admit you are a worthy opponent and I am struggling. It seems for every battle I win...I lose one. For instance, you won yesterday in the KFC drive-thru. I bought that 10 piece boneless buffalo wings for lunch. I brought them home and ate them all dipped in ranch. I even washed it down with a large sweet tea. I think the most embarrassing part is that I hid all the packaging deep in the trash so no one would find out my little secret. Well, it worked...no one knew except you, me, and the drive-thru girl. It felt so good to eat those naughty pieces of chicken, but it was so not worth the shame I feel now. My healthy eating has been on a downward spiral since school started. I will figure out something to get back on my feet. I will not let any more of you come back. I worked too hard for that to happen. Consider this a warning.

Everyone has little slips. Don't beat yourself up, just get back on track.

p.s. This was my Halloween costume a couple years ago. I bought an XXL nightie at Walmart and stuffed my butt to make it huge then sewed one of Connor's stuffed dogs into the "crack". It was hilarious!

Sue said...

I'm going through the same thing. I have put on a few..The stress of my wonderful life.

Today I promised myself to get back and not let the fat beast consume my thoughts.

I love your posts.

Don't you let all your hard work go down the drain!!! Every one has days they hide the KFC in the trash (yes they do!) but that just means the next day you have to try even harder!!!! Don't let FAT WIN!! Go Scrappy!

That picture is HILARIOUS!!

And, I so understand the whole food and fat issues! For years, I was stuffing wrappers deep in the trash and then felt the shame for days.

Let it go, start fresh and I absolutely know you will beat that ugly fat beast. Annihalate ir!!

I am at a point where the fat is about ruining my life. I hate fat! I hate dieting! Last year I lost 50 pounds - which to my shame, I have gained every last pound back. I was humiliated when Jason's dad was here last night. I hate having my picture taken. I hate being fat. I don't live my life because I am toooo embarrassed by being fat. I HATE IT. I just can't get motivated again... I had lost it and now it's back - I have to do all that hard work again.

You can tell I am frustrated too. It's a HARD battle. I need to get back on the "new healthier me" road again (as I sit here and eat the leftovers from Olive Garden).

The photo is funny, but the pain is not much fun. I'm going to exercise today and get on the wagon the rest of the day. It really hasn't been that bad of a day. I really want to be thin and beautiful!

I wish someone had a $1000 carrot in front of my nose. Something to get me motivated. But wait - wasn't the humiliation of seeing my ex enough and having a picture taken of me. Arrrgh.. I wish there was a magic pill or someone to suck it out of my body.

I shouldn't be writing a novel.. but I'm really frustrated too! OH HELP!! I know you can do it... I know I can do it too! We can do it!! We'll have to motivate each other!

Today is a new day.... You've been doing fabulous! Chin up! by the way... love the picture! LOL!

Debbie said...

It is such a hard battle. You hang in there! You'll win:)

Unknown Mami said...

Don't beat yourself up about it, just refocus.

Dana and Daisy said...

just look at all the love that has come your way! You are at least in the ring with your opponent. I have pretty much just resigned to mine.

Melissa said...

Good for you! Keep up the good work.

JennyMac said...

Keep the faith...rooting for you! You will do it.

mother goose said...

i love your notes to yourself. I think i may try this technique! I need to try something.

Cherie said...

You can do it!! Don't give up!!
