Open Letter Friday - Dear Body

A blogger I follow started this idea and I thought I'd play along with her. Feel free to play along too. I bet you will feel better when you get it off your chest. And please link me up so I don't miss your post!

Dear body,
While I appreciate all the years of service you have provided, and acknowledge that you and I have been inseparable over the years, I do wish to file a formal complaint today. For starters, I would greatly appreciate you not hanging on to every single calorie I enjoy. Remember the good ol' days when we could pig out and stay thin? Let's work like that again. I don't pig out anymore, yet I am not staying thin! What gives, body?  Also, I realize we aren't 18 25 32 anymore, but we aren't 80 either, so waking up with aches and pains is unacceptable. I'm serious here. I'm not going to stand for this much longer. Oh, and these gray hairs and wrinkles...they must stop immediately. I am not ready to be old. I'm putting my foot down! You have been good to me, body, don't fail me now!
Hugs and Kisses,

PS.  A good night's sleep (without the help of Melatonin or Nyquil) would also be case you were wondering ;)


  1. A chiropractor will help with some of those aches and pains in the a.m. :)

  2. Haha! I could have written that word for word. I actually stood in front of the bathroom mirror a few nights ago with some tweezers trying to pluck some of my grey out. I had to give up though because I was getting tired, lol.

  3. Good luck with that, let me know how it works for ya.

  4. I would LOVE a good night's sleep. Melatonin works so well for me, except when I get up at 4 am to go potty and then I never fall back to sleep. My body is paying for it!

  5. Oh goodness... I agree with this letter... 100%
    My brother lives down near OKC/Shawnee area... It was so nice and warm down there this weekend. LOVERLY!!!

  6. Love this idea! I wouldn't have guess a day over 30 despite the greys! ;)


I would love to hear your thoughts!!
