A Letter


A letter from myself to myself.

Dear Emily,

You can do this!  I know things get hard.  I know your brain just wants comfort foods sometime.  But don’t do it!  Don’t give in!  You’ve wanted this for so long, be strong.

In the past year how many times have you “restarted”?  WAY too many times to count!!  It’s normal.  It gets hard.  Our brains have been programmed and changing ANYTHING that you are accustomed to is not the easiest thing to do.

The thing that you have to do though, each time you slip up and give into your cravings, is not say “Oh well, I’ll do better tomorrow.”  NO!  Do better now!  So what, you slipped up?  That is no excuse to stop and restart tomorrow.  Tomorrow NEVER comes!  It’s always today.  Don’t do things that will make you regret yesterday.

Think of the future. 

Think of how you’re going to feel when you go to the mall.  No longer wondering “IF” but rather worrying about your funds.

Think of the pride you have now, because you’ve come SO far, but multiply it by 1,000,000 because you didn’t give up.

Think of how you’ll never be held back by yourself physically ever again.

Think of the strength you’ll have, physically, mentally, emotionally.

Think of how great you’re going to look.

Think of your future family and how what you’re learning now will help them to be healthy.

Think of yourself.  You deserve it.  You are strong.  You are beautiful.  You can do anything.

You deserve to be proud.  You deserve to be happy.  You deserve respect, not only from others but from yourself.  Don’t get in your way.  Remember the reasons why you’re doing this.

The future is now.  It’s made up of the choices you are making today.  Plan things out.  Take things slow.  Put yourself first, for once.  Your future is bright, and it’s full of successes and happiness.

You got this girl!
Peace and Blessings. Xoxo

Some Picspirations (made up that word now! haha):








For those reading this, I encourage you all to write a motivational letter to yourself.  One to reflect on when times get hard.  It was hard!  But eye opening, I had to remind myself SO much of my worth.  How many times do we put ourselves down and question whether we are worth making ourselves better?  We are!  Stop getting in you way.

Things have been going good for me.  I got sick, and rather than loosing weight, I gained.  So, I'm working on getting back to where I was two weeks ago.

Again, let me know how I can help you.  I'm here for you everyday.

  1. Hello Emily !
    I just wanted to let you know how much i enjoy reading your blog. You are very well spoken and have such a great attitude. What you are doing is hard. My husband and I have been working to lose weight and it is so easy to fall off the bandwagon! You have a great outlook though, and I am sure you can do it.
    Take care!

  3. Hi Emily! I stumbled upon your blog and randomly chose to read this passage. I am currently going through the same challenges of living life day by day in different aspects of my life. It is very inspiring to read your thoughts and relate them to my own; I especially love the "picspirations" you chose! I am so proud of you for all your success. :)
