The other day I was reading over some affirmations I wrote in my journal about a year ago. Some of them were things that at the time I never thought would come true but since did. The most significant of these: “I am naturally thin.”
The short version of the story: Every year I give myself a present on my birthday–anything from an expensive pair of boots to a compliment. On November 21 of last year (my thirty-fifth birthday), that gift was that I would officially give up binge eating and dieting–after over ten straight years of it.
And I did.
To my surprise, I lost even more weight since then, so that now, for the first time since high school, I am naturally thin (thin without dieting).
If that was all I had accomplished all year, it would have been a great one.
Diets don’t work? I disagree.
