Why I’m doing this
Sometimes I feel like screaming when I’m bombarded with all the diet messages in the media. When I hear my friends or co-workers talk about hating their bodies, or starting a new diet, or having a “good” eating day or a “bad” eating day, I just want to grab them and shake them (gently, of course!) and tell them that they don’t need to bother with all that crap. I want to assure them that they, too, can truly enjoy food, guilt-free, and reach their natural, healthy body shape and be okay with it. I don’t claim to be perfect or to do it right all the time, but through my own struggles I’ve found a way to make peace with food, and I hope that through sharing my experience, I can help others to achieve this seemingly impossible goal.
