Unsent Break Up Letter to Exercising

by neilari

Dear Exercising,

The reason I started this relationship with you is because... I knew it was time for a healthy change in my life, and that being with you would be the start.

At first, I was excited about starting our new relationship. You listen to all the problems, promising you could fix them in time. You even kindly introduced me to Dieting.

But after a few weeks of being together, I can tell our relationship is on the edge.

All you do is boss me around. You keep telling me what to do, and what not to do! "Go to the Gym!" "Don't eat that donut!" It's exhausting.

Whenever I want to meet up with my friend, Lazy, you get so needy.

Look, I know you're just looking out for me. But I don't think this is working out for us. I think maybe we just need some time apart.

Don't get me wrong...I'm grateful for all you've done for me. I'll never forget the time you helped me shed four pounds.

Obviously it's not you, it's me. I wish you the best. Love, Neilari

A serious point

I have been working out and eating healthy for a few weeks now. It's made me miss all my favorite foods, but I have also started to feel better. I'm making small accomplishments every day.

I wish I can break up with Exercising, but in this point in time I really need it.

@neilari I cheat. I have three hyper-active grandchildren who live nearby. They give me motivation. They are like mini-drill sergeants.

@bernardtwindwil Congratulations on all the hard work you do for yourself. It is definitely encouraging to know I'm not alone in this new health journey. There's plenty of studies that prove to working out has increased happiness. I hope as I move forward, I can have the same attitude as you when it comes to working out. :)

The slides and couching the message in a "Dear John" letter (do we say that anymore?) was beyond clever it was sublime genius. The message was vital to our health in this sugar jazzed world. It is personal for me. I have a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease that makes my immune system attack my skeletal muscles. For the past 6 weeks, I have been vigorously exercising in the pool and have changed my eating habits (dieting sounds so tawdry) . I have lost 16lbs and lowered my blood sugar to within normal limits. I can now be more independent. I find that I actually get a little "high" and look forward to it now. Great Letter. Please don't send it.
