Weight-loss Surgery: The Break-up

Health / Sunday, August 6th, 2017


Dear Food,

It’s over. What can I say? We’ve had a long run. We have had our ups and our downs. You’ve stuck with me through some difficult times. You’ve been there to celebrate all the good times. But at the end of the day, this relationship is toxic. You are an enabler and I am self-destructive. We make a terrible couple. We’ve broken up and gotten back together so many times I can’t even count. And it always ends up with me accepting you back into my life and letting you aide me in my bad behaviors. Well, enough is enough. We are broken up for good this time! Tomorrow, the divorce is final and I begin my new life with healthy relationships. Sure, I will still see you. There’s no way around that. But from now on, our relationship is strictly business. I’m starting a new love affair with myself and with a healthy lifestyle. There’s no room for your temptation anymore. So from now on, when we see each other out in the world, know that our meetings will be short and sweet and right to the point. No more lazy Saturday afternoons together on the couch. No more long evenings together at restaurants. No more trying to comfort me through my hard times or celebrate my good times with me. That part of our relationship is over. I know it’ll be hard on you to lose me. After all, my whole world revolved around you and I gave you all my attention. But in the end, you will see this relationship is better for both of us. I’m moving on, and so should you. It’s been real. See you on the other side.

Sincerely, The New Me
