Like many women, I have a history that includes dieting in various forms. Someday maybe I'll go into that history and how and why I decided to change it, but not now. Suffice it to say that at some point I decided life was too short for dieting. Too short to spend any more time judging myself by the number on the scale or the tag inside my clothing. Too short to count calories or grams or points or percentages or anything else the latest 'notadiet' declares is the item to watch.
Instead I intend to focus on improving my health, accepting myself and counting the things that matter. It's a long list. Life, love, family, happiness, health, peace - all the moments that bring joy to my life.
