Oooh I’ve nearly finished my 2008 goals list so am feeling excited and purposeful. About bloody time.
The Mothership reports that Dietgirl got a great mention in Ray Chesterton’s column in the Aussie Daily Telegraph today:
"With the issue of obesity in the news in Australia, a new book is a timely release. ‘The Amazing Adventures of Diet Girl’ by Shauna Reid details in an intimate and often hilarious style her personal battle of the bulge to cut her weight in half from 159.5 kg to 79.8 kg from 2001-07. There are no recipes: weight was shed via a controlled diet using food from a commercial weight-loss company."
It could have been quite a different book had I actually spent six whole years on a Jenny Craig-esque regime:
Day 1: Chicken cacciatore. Yum!
Day 7: Chicken cacciatore. Joy!
Day 976: Chicken caccaitore. KILL ME!
Then the whole moving-to-Scotland-finds-love sub-plot would never have happened by virtue of being too darn bankrupt to go travelling.
For the record, it will be seven years next week since it all kicked off and it’s comprised: one year of Weight Watchers, four months of Sure Slim… and 5 years 8 months of my own hard work and bumbling trial and error 🙂
