Letter Home

Dear Family and Friends,

I leave Duke Diet and Fitness Center this weekend and it is good to know that I will have your understanding, encouragement and company as I strive to continue to look after myself back in the real world.

I have a plan for eating less and moving more which I think will work well for me, just as your own plan works for you. If you wish, you can check out the details of my plan here–the everyday plan is the one to focus on. If I can get the process right, the outcome will follow.

I will be happy to accept your compliments on looking good, moving well and working at my plan. Of course, it will be great if you can walk, exercise or swim with me, and if you want to cook a calorie-conscious meal for me, or buy or bring me healthy food.

Supportive comments on the blog are always welcome.

It is important for me to be able to make my own choices and find my own balance between treats and duty-foods. Please don’t become the food police or the exercise patrol.

If you are concerned that I am falling back into old habits and neglecting my own welfare, please ask me a direct question about my plan and my progress, and let me know you are willing to help.  Answering you will help me analyze my own behavior and frame of mind. If I ask for your help, it will be because I value your compassion, flexibility and imagination. Thanks in advance for your support.
