New Years Resolution: A Year of not Dieting

I've basically spent my entire adult life (thus far) dieting or NOT DIETING.  Which means binge-ing.  I have lost heaps of weight - I'm a great dieter.  I've also put on lots of weight.  I am not currently the biggest I've ever been - I'm about 12 kilos off that.  I'm also not the smallest I've ever been - about 15 kilos off that.

During the holidays I read Portia de Rossi's book "Unbearable Lightness" which is about her battle with dieting that eventually led to anorexia and bullemia. 

It was a shocking book.  It kind of rocked me to my core.

So this year is going to be a year of not dieting.  I have absolutely no idea what will happen.  It is absolutely terrifying.

Dieting is just what we do in our family.  It feels like a shocking thing to do to give it up.

I'm completely terrified and completely excited.

Gah!  Now I have to do it!
