Excuse me while I scream!
I am so very tired ~ absolutely sick and bloody tired ~ of thinking about dieting, losing weight, getting slim. I just want to get on with my life and say to hell with all that. I just want to get through my days not thinking about what I should be eating while I'm chomping down on all the stuff I shouldn't be eating. I just don't want to buy any more slimming magazines and sit reading them with a mug of tea in one hand and a bar of chocolate in the other. I just don't want to feel unworthy and ugly anymore because I happen to be a fat woman. I just want to accept myself for who I am ~ a decent, loving and loveable woman. Why do I ~ and countless other women, I suspect ~ find this such a hard thing to do?
Being fat shouldn't be the sole definition of who I am. I am so much more than simply my outer shell! Isn't it time I started living my life in the here and now, time to start following the advice at the head of this blog:
Live not in what has happened ~ or fear of what may come tomorrow.
Live well...in the here and now...and treat this as your defining moment.
So I have made a decision: no more dieting, no more thinking about dieting, no more talking about dieting. It is now a concept which will no longer be occupying my thoughts or defining my life. Next year I will be 50 years old and I intend to reach that momentous milestone living in the here and now!
