On Sunday we went to a family gathering and I was inspired to write. I had the opportunity to talk to a young man who used to be extremely overweight. His name is Keith and we're related by marriage but mostly we're friends. At any rate, over the past few years Keith has shed many many pounds and has become one of the fittest people I know. He doesn't diet. He eats. He jokingly said, "I'd just like to eat out of my garden for a year and blog about it on a daily basis."
Suddenly a light bulb went off in my head. I've struggled with foods and dieting all my life. I'm not unhappy with the way I look...especially for my age...and yet I can't stop trying to starve myself. Of course not eating never works anyway but that's beside the point. When I saw the light, I felt the thrill that I used to feel when I began a writing project. I'm going to journal about eating for a year, I thought to myself. Win, lose, or draw after a year's time I'm going to be honest with myself and you. My goal is to eat myself healthy and strong and I am going to need all the help I can get. So please come visit me at celeryandcarrots.blogspot.com I know I'm not the only one who wants to eat!
I'll still be writing here too so stay tuned!
