I pledge to stop dieting in 2018, join me! Because I refuse to keep feeling a failure and as if my only value in this life is how much I weigh. I am 2st 7lb heavier than I ever was, I have lower self-esteem than I have ever had. I am obsessed with food, diets and my image from from the moment I get up until I go to bed. I am no longer engaged in my life but sitting on the sidelines. I am sad and lonely. I feel like I just get through the days. I do not want to pass this mentality onto my 4 year old daughter. I just want to start living again.
