"Write a letter to whatever is stopping you from losing the extra weight you'd like to lose."
After crap-tons of hard work, I'm in pretty good shape - but the one thing that has always kept me a little "soft" is sugary treats. And my favorite sugary treat is (you probably guessed it): chocolate.
You have a special place in my tummy... that little pouch I've had underneath my belly button nearly my entire life is for you and only you.
Chocolate, you are what's been keeping me from having the perfect stomach for years. You in your many forms... completely destroying any progress I make at the gym. I try to sweat all of you out but I take you back at the end of the day - most recently in the form of those new Cheerios or lovely little Dove pieces.
I fell in love with you as I grew in mom's womb - her cravings of chocolate mini donuts with chocolate milk sealed my fate. I'm just going to have to accept that your extra baggage is never going away. I have to have you - loving you is dangerous, but I can't resist your m&ms, your Applebees Triple Chocolate Meltdown, your Ben & Jerry's Fudge Brownie Ice Cream, your Starbucks Iced Mochas... you make life so much better. I will continue to try and get rid of you each day that I spend with the Arc Trainer and the Elliptical Machine, but I know that we'll keep crawling back to each other no matter what happens. One thing is for sure - you will always have a special place in my chocolate pouch.
