the trouble I have with diets
  • Me:I should go on a diet! I'll be so much happier and comfortable with myself when I've lost a little weight!
  • Also Me:But you know what would make you really happy *right now* without any waiting time or any effort involved at all??
  • Me:What??
  • Also Me:A BACON SANDWICH AND THIS GIANT BAG OF DELICIOUS M&MS!!!!
  • Me:Damn me...you make a good point...
Diet and beauty culture thrive on guilt. Guilt over that delicious dessert. Guilt over that dress size. Guilt over those wrinkles. They teach you guilt and then they sell you the solution. Please, never feel guilty for existing. You are allowed to eat. You are allowed to take up space. You are allowed to age. You are allowed to exist in the body you have right now without spending all of your time, money and self worth to change it.
