In this journey to become the best and healthiest version of yourself you will be tempted by your Fat Inner Child. In this post, you will read about how you can start pushing back on your chubby little friend.
I want you to get out some paper and a pen. You are now going to write a letter to your Fat Inner Child. Tell them what you really think about them and how you are going to combat them. When you are done with the letter, put it where your temptations are. Do you have a cookie jar full of Mini Reeses Cups like I do? Then fold it up and put it in there. Do you binge watch TV shows all the time? If so, wrap the note around the remote control.
P.S. Be sure to share with your family what your note is. It might just encourage them to write a note to their Fat Inner Child.
Okay here goes mine.
“Dear Fat Inner Child,
I am writing this letter to you right now, because quite simply I am sick of you. I know you really couldn’t be bothered, because you love laying on the couch resembling a burrito wrapped in your favorite blanket binge watching Gossip Girl. You have all the sugary sweets and salty yumminess within arm’s reach. You extremely rather be doing that everyday rather than getting up to go for a run.
I know you’d probably rather scoop out as much food as you’d like onto your plate, even if you aren’t THAT hungry instead of sticking to the recommended serving sizes.
The thing is though, I’d rather not reap the punishment you deserve. I am not going to let you have control over my choices. I have a choice. I am not going to take on the pounds you aren’t willing to lose.
I will make you obey me.”
Okay, now it’s your turn! If you feel comfortable, share yours in the comments.
