And now, I give you the letter from Dimple-ty DoDo to Skinny Bitch:
Dear Skinny Bitch,
You think you know it all. Have answers to everything, don’t you!?
Well, don’t you?
It’s not easy living up to the dream of perfection, keeping up with the pace of your creativity. It is kind of exhausting. Excruciatingly so.
I need more fuel, so I eat. I need more love, so I beg.
There’s no other way to get your attention than to pile on some dimples on the posterior or make it so your pants don’t button.
I know, mean tricks on my part.
But, I (you) need rest, reflection and some fun. Just a little play goes a long way you know.
And that’s what I’m afraid of …being left out, while you go run ahead and forget about ME.
WHAT ABOUT ME!!???
There. I said it. Now, you know where I’m coming from.
You want love? I’ve got bundles for you! Just let me in.

The above letter I wrote from my fat voice, (Dimple-ty DoDo) to my skinny voice (Skinny Bitch). This letter is copied directly out of my journal.
This exercise is inspired from Chapter 2 of the Marianne Williamson book: A Course In Weight Loss: 21 Spiritual Lessons For Surrendering Your Weight Forever. To see Skinny Bitches letter, please read yesterday’s post.
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.
