A few semi-related thoughts as I plan this week’s menus

I am fucking accomplished in every other area of my life. Why can’t I control what I put in my mouth? And why do I order a second demi-carafe of wine when I know I’m going to regret the calories the next morning?

A colleague whom I respect greatly made an offhand comment to me about being on a diet. She’s an accomplished leader, mother, cook, superwoman. If she’s not embarassed to admit in public that she’s watching her weight, WTF should I?

I could use some encouragement and accountability. I’m struggling (clearly), but I’m still unwilling to go back to posting daily calories. This is a public blog, and because it doubles as a food and recipe blog, I’m not interested in sharing my failures with my coworkers and distant friends. I have enlisted my husband in a minor way, but I’m sure I can do better.

I do not like how society normalizes behaviors that are disordered in skinny people but encouraged for us fatties.aracer.mobi

  1. I have asked my self something similar… I am a control freak, so why can’t I control my eating!? I have thought about putting my food on my blog too and not taken that step. But I may. Because I suspect if it is out there I might not eat some of the things I eat! I also considered doing a second blog just for a food diary. Maybe you can consider that idea and only share it with certain people or no one at all.

  2. Very good blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!
