DIET is a 4 Letter Word

Thursday, April 05, 2007

So is shoe, hand, fork...there are a lotta them out there. I'm done with euphemisms. Yes, I'm learning a healthy lifestyle, yes, I'm exercising portion control, yes, I'm creating a calorie deficit. Doing that while trying to lose weight, so currently, I'm ON A DIET. No more negative connotations with that word! A bird has a diet, in the zoological sense-- grubs and seeds, with a little garbage thrown in. I HAD a diet, in that same sense, of a whole bunch of garbage and too much of everything else! So I'm going to work towards eating like a bird. In the zoological sense. Semantics is a beautiful thing!

    You are absolutely right about the negative connotations that surround the word-- DIET--and you are absolutely right that essentially, that's what we're all--a diet. It's just a different, new and improved (hopefully) diet.

    You've done a great job so far, you're over half way to your goal. Keep it up!
