Write a letter – Weight loss exercise 2


There are many parts of you just as there are parts of the color blue. You have a basic identity that is mixed up with a healed heart and high self-esteem, and you have a basic identity that is mixed up with trauma and low self-worth that is what is in control when you are neurotic, compulsive, addictive, etc. You must learn to love all sides of you. You must learn to love your fat self as well as your thin self. Your fat self is your fearful self. Love her to heal her. How? When you eat well, you are loving yourself. When you eat compulsively or excessively, you are allowing your fears to be in charge. Stop. Let love be in charge.

See your perfect self; the you through the mind of God. See your perfect self, and you world will begin to reflect it. Heal your relationship between the you that eats wisely and the you that eats dysfunctionally.

  1. Write a letter to your fat self.
  2. Write a letter from your fat self.
