The Dirty "D" word

Did you know I started dieting at 14 years old?!?!

I will NEVER forget wanting to buy a black sparkly dress for my 8th grade dance and my mom telling me that if I lost 10lbs she would buy me the dress...

She just wanted me to be healthy... but what it did was set in motion a pattern of events that left me with 16 years of crash diets, fad diets, deprivation, binge eating, weight loss, weight gain... all culminating in a 30 year old woman who had resigned herself to just being "the big girl"
