    The timing on this post is crazy! Check out what I just wrote on my blog @ regarding weight loss for my opinion. And not to sound too weird, but I think your body is AWESOME!!!


    I love food and have to be diligent not to get too fat. (Our Korean mothers always tell us when we're getting too chubby so we know we have someone waiting to keep us in line.) It's so easy for me to pack on the pounds. So I have to force myself to do stuff like run or exercise in order to keep me healthy and satisfy my equally voracious appetite. I love to eat and now I love to run so I can try to keep both sides happy. But I also think you can't let it get to you if you gain some weight once in awhile. It happens (esp. the older you get).

    However, when you pay attention to what you're eating - not just pre-processed crap - you don't have to eat as much because you're eating well. Making food from scratch once again has helped my diet. And when I eat fast food (i.e., from lack of any suitable food choices in small towns), I feel it. It's not a happy feeling and typically takes several days if not weeks to flush that crap out of my system. Here's to good eating with an occasional amount of fat - that's what makes one happy. :-)


    Ooh, good topic! I grew up with a mom who was opposite than yours in a way. She stayed at home with me and made homemade dinners, but her meals weren't especially tasty or large. Her version of spaghetti was noodles with plain tomato sauce, and maybe a sprinkle of parmesan. I often ate a piece of plain, dry bread on my way out the door to the bus in the morning. It wasn't until I moved out that I began to discover what taste was. This may generate a boo from the audience, but I never had to worry about my weight... until now. After having a baby, I thought my previously thin body would bounce back easily and it hasn't. It didn't help that breast feeding came with a huge appetite, and that appetite included a desire for dessert. Lots and lots of dessert. So after I realized that I was going to stay chubby unless I did something about it, I had to slightly change my eating habits and start working out again. I feel the same way you do about diets, V. So I decided to allow myself 5 (dark, Ghirardelli) chocolate chips every day. That way, I wasn't totally depriving myself from the taste that constantly occupies my thoughts. I've fallen off the wagon several times, but I don't beat myself up over it. I just choose to start again. I'm not losing the weight at a Hollywood pace, but I'm trying to live my life in a way that makes me feel good. I feel good when I'm making healthy choices in general, with dessert (and bread and cheese and butter) in moderation.
