To my Beloved, my mother, father, sisters, brothers, lovers and friends,
I have known you for many years we are connected by birth or love. I have things I want to tell you but we never seem to get to them. I have seen how you watch self help on TV or read self help books. You sometimes share what you have learned from these things, with me. I have listened to you tell me about your latest diet or life change you are making, I have kept silent, I have been patient, waiting for you to ask me about myself and why I live the way I do.
You have seen the changes in me in my face, in my hips in the way I deal with stress. Yet you never ask me what it is that has caused me to make these changes.
We share a common heritage our humanity yet we are different.
We each have our own set of ideas about the world but if we are confronted with the truth are we willing to change? What if those ideas are different then our old belief systems? Are we willing to adjust ourselves to a new set of ideas to really change? I have no hidden agenda.
I want to share my secrets with you. I want to enter my old age with you by my side. I want you to know the things I know so you and I can live happily ever after. Does it sound like a fairy tale? Maybe it is, or maybe you and I could make it a reality.
Have you read Eat Right for Your Type, or Live Right for Your Type? I mean really read it and tested it. I'll bet if Oprah had it on her show you might take a look. Oprah has a hidden agenda, Dr. Oz. I have none.
I remember when we thought mom was dying and we stood beside her bed in the CCU you asked her "Is there anything you would like to tell us?" Hoping for some sort of loving words. I know exactly what I would say to you if you posed the same question of me, I would ask you to try for 3 months the ER way of life. I know in that short period of time you would never want to return to your old eating habits. I know you would lose the weight that you have been struggling with, I know your cholesterol would come down, your digestion would improve, your energy level would increase and your allergies would diminish. How do I know these things? Because I have lived them, I have been down the road you are now traveling.
I will always love you for our bond is stronger then a few words. I am here waiting for the day when you decide that you want me to tell you. I know that day may never come, but like the groom that waits for his bride, I will be ready.
I love you, Andrea
