Hello future me. This is you, Feb 15, 2016. You are now 90 pounds overweight. Don't let that freak you out. You will never weigh what the charts say you should weigh. Look at your family. They don't have skinny genes so don't try to be something you're not.
Let's set some realistic goals. First, live healthy...not because you're supposed to but because you deserve it! Everyone should live in a way that makes them happy and right now, wearing these tight clothes does not make you happy. So let's agree to make some changes and live a healthier lifestyle.
Second, have fun. This is not a punishment...it's a new start...a second chance to be the person you know you can be. So embrace it and enjoy your new life.
And third...remember to take time for those you love. You may be busy and rushing around trying to gets things done, but taking time to be with those who care about you is worth a million times more than making that deadline...maybe not to you, but to the person you stop to spend time with. Letting then know you want to be with them is priceless to them.
That's it for now. We will talk again soon.
Your chubby but determined past self.
