The Diet from Hell

The first time in my life that I ever had to diet, I was 28 years old.   I’d always been a thin person but woke up one day to realize that I had gotten fat!   I had been in a miserable marriage and the truth of the matter was that the only thing I was living for was my next meal.   All of a sudden, I realized that it was time to make some changes….so I lost the weight, lost the husband, and moved to Boston!

I don’t recommend the diet plan that I used, but it worked.  It was one of those fad diet things that circulate around.   For six weeks, I spent four days of those weeks eating a lot of grapefruit and boiled eggs.   On the days off, I snarfed whatever I wanted.   It was around this time of year because as I recall, I would buy a box of Girl Scout cookies and leave them on the counter with a note that said “Midnight Thursday.”   I’d diet like crazy Monday through Thursday and those cookies were my reward to myself.   I joined a gym and worked out like mad!   In six weeks, I’d lost 30 pounds and was back to my normal size 3.    The weight stayed off for about 10 years but that was mostly because I stayed active.   Once I went back to my couch potato ways, the weight started creeping back.

This diet does not teach you anything about nutrition, healthy eating or lifestyle.   It’s a quick fix.  It worked for me once but I’ve never been able to face it again!   Now that I’m turning 49, I think it’s time to get a little more serious!
