Nothing Tastes As Good As Thin Feels?

I....... feeling resentful.

......and maybe a little bit angry.

What's my drama, you ask?

I don't want to be on a diet.

I'm good at being on a diet. I follow it to the letter.

But has been making me resentful.



  1. I don't want to give unwanted advice, and don't have any real answers for you...but maybe think about whether or not you're feeling better? Do you feel a little more energetic, or more positive about the good changes you're making?

    I don't know if that helps or hurts, but it's just a thought! Hang in there, Amy! Hugs, Beth

  2. I am one angry biotch when I'm dieting. Get away from me, or I'll gnaw your arm off.

    Stand proud, Ames.

  3. I'm proud of you, never comment but always read........ you go girl..... slowly, but you will get there....... hugs, Sherry

  4. As you knwow Amy, I am not on a diet, but I am losing weight painlessly. I have always found dieting so frustrating and I hate feeling deprived. To me, it's always just felt another way for someone else to control me, and Lord knows having come out of a very abusive marriage I had enough of that in my lifetime!. I do very good at it for a while, but then I just say screw it. I think you have to do what feels best for you. ((((hugs))))

  5. I'm sure just one day eating cake and chocolate will not arm the cause.

    Go on, have a choccy.

    Do it!


  6. Sometimes I can get pretty wordy on my blog...and then I read a post like yours where you make such a point in about one-tenth of the space.

    I too resent dieting. I am sick of sweating over my eating and activity. I just want to "not" think about those things and just live.

    If only I hadn't "lived so large" before. So now I, and a whole bunch of us, have to pay for all those free dances, right?

    Keep dancing with us,'re doing know you are.

  7. ;) that's how I feel when I'm designated driver.

    Hang in there doll.

  8. Oh man do I hear you... but it's true. It will be so worth it once you lose the weight!!

  9. Amy, you have my great respect. I know how hard this is, because I've done it before and now I need to do it again all the more, and I can't just seem to get rolling with it. I'm proud of you!

  10. Understood.
    How about one day a week to splurge? Having indulgences occasionally is a good thing, I think.

    Good luck!


  11. So don't be on a diet! Workout super hard, eat what you want in small portions and enjoy! :-)

  12. I need to go on a diet. I don't want to go on a diet.

    I'm going on a health kick instead.

  13. I loathe that quote. mmmmmmmm.....How about "Nothing tastes as good as washing the bitterness of continual societal rejection off your palate". Or "Nothing tastes as good as lowering your massive heart attack potential". OR "Nothing tastes as good as putting on pantyhose and NOT having them wear holes on the inside of your thighs." Maybe you could make a list of reasons you hate being fat and focus on that instead. It helps me.
    I hear you though.

  14. Meanwhile, I'm still staring at my treadmill and wishing my schedule was not as hectic as it has been over the last few months.

  15. Ooh, I am sure my blog didn't help. Sorry to torment you with chicken and In-and-Out!


Talk to me, people! Otherwise, I'm just talking to myself....
