Welcome to the Dietgirl Archives. You can explore eleven years of ramblings here, or check out the handpicked best entries.
Important disclaimer: Each post is merely a snapshot of a moment, and some of these moments are almost twenty years old now! My thoughts and opinions have evolved over time. In particular, when it comes to dieting, diet culture and weight loss.
Now in 2019, I am in recovery for Binge Eating Disorder, something that has been part of my life for decades only I didn’t have a name for it. Ditching diets for good has been a huge part of my healing. I now practice intuitive eating, and I move my body in ways that feel fun and good instead of worrying about calorie burn.
Dietgirl now feels like a lifetime ago, but I like keeping these archives here because it’s all part of the story. Spoiler alert: I did not keep the weight off. But today, I’m happier than I ever have been.
So please enjoy the archives – I always love hearing from people who take the time to wade through them! If you want to catch up on life since then, I’m still blogging about my new adventures since then over at shaunareid.com.
