Dear Old Me,
You have been lied to, dooped, tricked, mislead, deceived. You must stop believing the lies. That voice inside your head is an expert liar. It tells you all the time that you aren't good enough. Smart enough. Talented enough. You can't lose weight. It is way to difficult for you so you shouldn't even try. It tells you that eating those cookies will in fact make you feel better. It convinces you that you are okay being fat and unhealthy, that it doesn't matter. It tells you that you can't push past trials and hardships to come out on the other side so you might as well just give up. It tells you that nothing will ever be better. You agree with the liar and so that lie is your reality. It forces you to be stuck in this desperate, lonely place full of fear and darkness.
You must break free of the lies. When you hear those thoughts going through your head, squash them. Don't agree with them. This is the one area in your life it is okay, actually it is a requirement to have a wall against it. Build the wall strong and high so that the liar can't get over it. Start believing that you are good enough, smart enough, talented enough. You can lose ALL of the weight. There is nothing too difficult. In fact nothing is impossible, so you should try, try and then try again. If you eat those cookies you will actually feel much worse. Being healthy is one of the most important things you could ever do for you and everyone you love. If you persevere through even the hardest times you will come out the other side so much more strong than you could ever imagine. Things will be better. There is a place for you. A place full of laughter, friends, love and light and it is yours, but only if you stop believing the lies.
Basking in the sunshine of this beautiful life,
The New You
