I am always going to be on a diet. It's not necessarily that I am depriving myself of delicious foods, it's just that I eat them in regulation. It's always going to be important to me because I know what will happen to me if I don't watch what I eat and work out. My mom has recently become really unhealthy and I've finally started to get her to realize that she needs to take better care of herself. So what kind of example would I be if I told her to take care of herself but I didn't do the same thing for myself.

It's weird to say, but I don't think "dieting" in that sense of the word is important to me now. I want to have a healthy diet overall...with diet meaning everything I eat.
What's more important to me is living a healthy lifestyle and choosing foods because they're good for me, with an occasional indulgence so I'm not denying myself of the things that I like. Healthy choices are far more important to me than dieting.
