A letter to my tummy

I just found a letter that I wrote to my tummy a couple of months ago. It's a bit silly but I'm sure that some of you can relate..

I'm sorry tummy. I have made you feel a bit funny lately. I'm sorry for chowing down cous cous and feta this lunch time, I'm sorry for swallowing a cheese sandwich in two gulps for breakfast. I'm sorry for stuffing you with muesli and brimming you with bubbling wine. I guess I forgot how happy a tummy was supposed to feel until this afternoon when I generously poured into you two pints of green juice and lovingly provided you with mashed avocado wrapped in lettuce leaves. You really are an easy one to please. And if that's all it takes to make you feel blissfully calm and satisfied I must remember to take care of you more often. I am truly sorry, I really did just forget and my mouth got a little carried away. I'm sure that it will happen again.


  • I love this letter!! I think we should all do this from time to time...a great self-check-in

    i've written my body letters like this, too. i keep one in my wallet with me whenever i am tempted to make a regrettable food move. it definitely helps!

  • I'm glad I'm not the only one!

    Great idea, I may have to write some myself sometime.

  • Aw I love it!

    Sometimes I have sympathy for my body as if it's seperate from my "self." I feel horrible for beating this precious thing up with over-eating and when I'm in tuned to what my body needs, my happiness increases. Sometimes when raw, I'll decide with fruit over veggies or veggies over fruit, depending on what my body tells me. It's pretty cool to communicate with yourself in that way. Great letter, violet! And great idea, joannabanana, I'll try and write one and keep it on me as well so I can make the right decisions for me AND my body.
