Unfortunately, at this time of year, everyone doubles down on the diet talk. I'm having a particularly difficult time with diet talk triggering my abusive life partner ED (that's Eating Disorder) into action this year. I've already had one day where I starved myself all day and slept all afternoon in order to stop myself from eating. Today I've been up for three hours and am very hungry but having trouble making myself eat.

People look at me and think "she must be lying about having an eating disorder." The truth is, anytime you're looking at a big woman, there's a higher than average likelihood that she has engaged in restrictive eating behaviors more than once. She has most certainly dieted.

The diet talk and size shaming needs to stop. I like looking for recipes with lower carbs because I'm diabetic. What I don't like is all the weight loss talk that gets thrown into the mix every single time.

Anyway, salads are good.
