When did Diet become a verb? I always considered it a noun. My diet is what I eat day in and day out. It was never a dirty 4-letter word; a verb for the torture du jour of odd food combinations, deprivations, and blatant lies of the perfect body you will have if only you follow their plan, whoever they are.
seen friends diet on and off their whole lives. I know the many diets
they tried didn’t work, or it worked for a while. But for most of them,
the moment they started eating their ‘normal diet’ they got bigger than
they ever were.
I blithely, and I admit it, went my own
way wondering what the big deal was. I’ve never dieted a day in my
life; I never had to. I was always on the go, ran or walked every
morning, did weights at the Y, practiced yoga 2-3 times a week - yes,
even when I had a job, a husband, and an exceptional child at home.
as I said in yesterday’s blog, I let go and I’m not happy with the
result. I still refuse to embrace diet as a verb, I just need to
remember myself and reinstate all those good things I used to do just
for me. I know I’m still in there somewhere.
