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!
