Note to Self: Believe

Dear Lori,

You can do it.  You will do it.  Do not give up.  You cannot give up.  You cannot go back to that place.  Nothing tastes as good as a run feels.  A long, slow run is exhilarating.  A long, slow snack...not so much. Tomorrow it will be two years since you started this journey, but anniversaries don't matter.  Stop thinking you'll "start" that day.  Just do it.  Keep Start moving forward.  Anyday and everyday. You can and will achieve your goals.  First, believe.  Second, achieve.  As Ali Vincent says, "Believe it.  Be it." You've lost faith in yourself, but you can get it back.  Get on the treadmill, eat less, and believe.  Before you know it, you'll be there.  And that will be great because there are some nice clothes in your closet that miss you.



  1. I am right there with you!!! We can and we will do it!
