So I was passing time with Stumbleupon and found this cool little website: FutureMe.org
Unable to resist the temptation, I wrote a letter to my future self. Here it is pasted below. It will be delivered to me 38 weeks from now, when I expect to have lost the remaining 38 lbs of my goal.
I wish this would work in reverse. I wish I could get messages from you instead, but whatever. We need to take what we can get, right?
I hope when you get this, you will have reached your weight loss goal. If not, I hope you're close to it. We've come this far not to make it. We worked hard for this, and we're continuing to institute life-long changes in our behaviors toward food and exercise.
How does it feel to not be "chubby", FutureMe? I bet it must feel awesome.
Now that you've reached your goal, do me a favor: don't forget how you got there, and don't take your health for granted. Continue to nurture your body and take care of yourself.
Enjoy your slim, fit and healthy body!
Your best friend,
