"Dear Venus,
          Today is day one. It's the first day of putting forth not ten percent, but one hundred and ten percent. It's the first day of trying hard, and not taking any excuses. You have eaten well for the day, so your task is only this- no eating for the rest of the day. You will find hunger again before sleeping. You will feel empty by the time you go to bed. The only things left to do is relax and unwind, because stressing out has no pros to outweigh the cons; not even one.
          Being skinny takes work, and so from now on you will work hard. If you want to be beautiful, you must give your all. Why do you think only some people are skinny? Because not everyone has the strength to achieve their dreams. Do you?
          When you eat, you are empty. When you are empty, you will be full. Every time you are about to eat that "one more thing", take a moment to realize that one more thing could be the difference between a pound gained, and a pound lost. Food will taste like ash in your mouth, and water will replenish your soul. Take care, because when you are bored you eat too much, when hunger is not the problem. As soon as you realize food is poison, and your body follows suit, you can become beautiful.
           Whenever your strength fails you, close your eyes and imagine a scale. Watch, as in your mind, the numbers dwindle. 150, then 145, soon 140, 130, 120, and then 115, until you are absolutely perfect at 96. We will see then. Does food really make you feel better? Remember that feeling after you have selfishly eaten too much? What is food really worth anyways? It is disposable.
           There are no rules in this game, just skill and talent. Either you can do it and are good at it, or you fail. There are no lines to cross, just control to keep. There is no right and wrong, as long as you achieve the winning goal. There is no single path, so when you reach a road block don't give up right away. You either want it or you don't.
           Love,
           Ana."
