9/18 Your Love Letter:

You have to move and make better choices!!!

I’m sitting on a plane as I write this love letter. What I want to say to the woman in my row, I am sharing with you. You have to find some time, any time, to move!

Absolutely no disrespect but just listen. Read slowly. Take it in. You have eaten 2 bags of popcorn, 2 packs of cookies, a sub sandwich, pretzels, a soda, a water and we’re only 2 hours into our 4 1/2 hour flight. I am worried about you. You are suffering from a very scary addiction. You need to eat to survive but you have lost touch with nutrition and your excessive consumption.

This is a very important love letter. So many people have lost touch with love for themselves. They are living in denial and their health, their LIFE is at serious risk. Please be more mindful of what you eat and what you do, or lack there of. I’m not saying go on a crazy, unattainable diet but you absolutely need to make better choices.

Today, please, please move! If you’re already an active person, do something a little longer or harder. Challenge yourself. If you’re not, choose the stairs, stroll around your neighborhood, do some squats, dance! Every little bit counts. Watching tv? Do jumping jacks during the commercials.

Exercise
I can’t reiterate how special you are. This matters. Your lungs, heart, blood, brain, eyes….all of it matters. You are killing yourself.

I hate when I hear unhealthy, obese, woman blame their “big bones” or they don’t need to make any changes because they “love their curves”.  Now I am all about self love and truly that IS what this is about. Unfortunately some people are mistaking the self “love” and sabotaging their health. You do not have to be a size 2, 7, 12 etc. I wouldn’t say a size or weight has to be your goal either! It’s been years since I have weighed myself! I do believe going to a doctor and getting a current physical to make sure you’re in good overall health is necessary. Get those results and take action!

You are worth it. Stop making excuses. Move. Make better choices. For you. For your future.

Love always,
