The Anti-Diet Zealot.

Spending time this week at the IAEDP (International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals aka my people) conference. I will be back soon with many more tools in my toolbox. In my absence, please note what I think about diets:

I love this picture, and I love your perspective. I am on my 4th "journey" through weight loss right now. The first came in college when I made a commitment to lead a healthier lifestyle by making healthy eating choices and exercising regularly. Since it wasn't a "diet", it stuck with me for 8 years. Then, I gained an appropriate amount of weight with each of my pregnancies and was able to do the same thing to get back to "normal" each time. I have lots and lots of family members who "diet" over and over and over and never really make a lifestyle change. I LOVE food...always have and always will; I just had to teach myself balance. I hope I can teach my children the healthy attitude about eating that you've expressed here!
