It's Spring and one's fancy doesn't turn to love but weight loss! Damn, what is it about we American's that makes us so obsessed with our body image? Turn on the TV and all you hear is about a new diet plan, read some blog and you'll read people write about needing to go on a diet, sit in a StarBucks and you hear people talking about going on a diet.
It's like the mantra of the American people, diet, diet, diet!
Even my favorite writer Neil Gaiman has written how he is on a DIET! Damn, isn't being brillant and an amazingly gifted writer enough for the man? He has to look slim in his black jean?
What wrong with this country?
Okay, I know summer will be here soon and even I want to look good in my bikini and short shorts but it's not a major goal of mine!
I feel that so many people are spending far too much energy stressing over a number on the scale instead of focusing on more important issues. Like improving the person within.
We are more than our weight!
