The Diet Diaries

Diet Day 0.  It's the Sunday before my personal D-Day, the Monday on which I have vowed to begin a Diet.  I had not made this a New Year's resolution despite the fact that I have noted some new fat cells ganging up around my middle.  Cut yourself some slack, I told myself.  Body positivity

My Life On A Diet

It’s Monday morning, and I have declared that I am going on a diet.  Again.  My weight is starting to climb.  Again.  I’m sure if I try hard enough, I can identify more evil food items that must never again pass my lips – foods that will join the cadre of those already banished, like
