Welcome letter

Dear 2009,

I am pleased to meet you. I don't have much time to really settle in and get to know you, so let's just jump right in, shall we?
Your predecessor 2008 did a good job by me but I suspect you will surpass him as my best, healthiest year.

I intend to take you for all you are worth. This year I will be motivated, inspired, determined, and steadfast in my efforts. I will eat as well as I can, I will exercise more than I ever have. I will think positively. I will be patient, and I will not expect miracles.
I will take better care of myself as a whole, and try to develop some confidence.

I will do things for myself for the sole purpose of enjoyment. I will continue to do things for others. I will work hard at work while I am there. I will work hard on myself when I am home. I will never stop working, but I will never lose sight of the joy in relaxation and the little things.

Although I will strive be the best girlfriend, sister, daughter, friend, maid of honor, niece, granddaughter, employee, and person that I can possibly be... this year is for me. This year *I* come first. My weight loss, my health, and my happiness will come before all else. I believe that selflessness has sabotaged me before. This year, I will make myself proud to be me, so that in years to come, I can be a stable, healthy, fun person that everyone else can enjoy and rely on.

Please send my sincere thanks to 2008. He was good training wheels. Let's get down to business. :-)

- Regards,
Chai
