Dear Anonymous

You know who you are...you are currently recovering from an overdose of turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes. You are contemplating what your "final meal" is going to be tomorrow before you start on January 1st. You are drinking the rest of the egg nog, and have a fully stocked cabinet full of cheat foods ready for the final binge tomorrow. You know who you are...there's no hiding from me because that was me for so many years.

I want you to know that this will be hard, this will take dedication, this will take patience. You will not be 100% all the time, you will fall, you will cheat, but in those moments you will also have a choice to make. Are you ready to make that choice? The choice of getting back up and continuing on or giving up because its January 2nd and you just ate a ferrero rocher? Be prepared for that choice, be prepared to be strong because that is the test of your willingness to start/continue on your health journey. Get the garbage bag ready to purge the pantry, the starving children in Africa do not need the rest of the chocolates you were unable to shove in your mouth before the clock struck midnight.

I hope that you make that decision that you are important enough to do this. I hope that you make the choice to continue on when you fall down. 2012 could be the best year of your life, make it so by making you a priority.

Anonymous, you know who you are, do it for yourself and do it because you are capable.
