Dear Current Self,
You can do this.
I know you can.
I absolutely believe in you.
It is possible to survive
without wheat, sugar, caffeine, dairy.
Try to love yourself enough and
try to quit being mad about what
has happened. It wasn't your fault.
Strive to see these changes as
honoring your health, yourself,
and the precious people in your life.
You are not bad if you fail, and
you can get back up and try it again
and hold your head high.
Strive for balance
and a sense of humor about
stumbles, rather than shame and
You did this before and I am
rooting for you to do it again.
Don't you feel better now than
you did even four days ago?
I know you do - be honest.
Even in the midst of cravings,
your body is at peace instead
of being twisted and tormented
by food that is harmful to it.
Soon, you will be able to walk
daily for exercise and I know
you remember the positive things
that does for your attitude and form.
I believe in you.
Please believe in me, out here
waiting for you to arrive!
Your Future Self
