Today, I share the letter I wrote from my skinny voice (Skinny Bitch) to my fat voice, (Dimple-ty DoDo). This letter is copied directly out of my journal.
In yesterday’s post on ThePromise365.com I promised to share my letters. This exercise is inspired from Chapter 2 from Marianne Williamson’s book: A Course In Weight Loss: 21 Spiritual Lessons For Surrendering Your Weight Forever.
The premise is below:
Although the point is not to hate Not-Thin You, you cannot get to love without first acknowledging what stands before it. Once you have told your truth to Not-Thin You and then allowed her to respond, you will learn a very important truth: she does not stand before you craving food: she stands before you craving love.
Without further ado, I give you the letter from Skinny Bitch to Dimple-ty DoDo.
Dear Dimple-ty DoDo:
What got into you?
Where did the canyons of fear come from anyway?
Is it too much attention you fear, or never being pretty enough?
Are you afraid of never living up to the standard of the beautiful people in your life?
You could be free and happy, fearless and powerful! You could run and run and run!
What’s holding you back?
Know I am here to hold your hand, to take every breathe with you.
Because I love you, fully and deeply.
xo- Skinny Bitch
Tomorrow, Dimple-ty DoDo gets a chance to respond.
