Chucking away dieting

Day 10 OctPoWriMo

Prompt: Letting go

Form: Tyburn

To curb hunger awful, painful fight
The worst is dreadful, hateful night!

Sumptuous food hopeless, distress brings
Empty gut songs of endless, sadness sings!

The mirror makes me jealous, nervous wreck
My health needs zealous, conscious check!

Going for healthy eating, cooking tips
No more of gagging, starving blips!

( Today’s prompt took me in a totally different direction. We were asked to bring in humour yesterday, it slyly made an entry today. I am a sucker for punishment, so a series of tyburn I present!)

  1. Let me be as real as it gets. If I hadn’t discovered size acceptance and health at every size 10 years ago, I would still be a self-loathing fat person in the clutches of an eating disorder allowing other people to psychologically abuse me because of my size.
    Instead, I am one angry fat bitch perpetually fighting an eating disorder (no, not binge eating) who does not allow concern trolls to bring their diet talk and psychological abuse to either my virtual or physical door.
    My endocrine system is screwed six ways to Sunday. Unless I develop a life-threatening illness, I’m never going to be thin.
    People are welcome to think I’m a hideous fat land whale, ham planet, or whatever other dumb epithets they want to use. I can’t control people’s thoughts or lack of empathy. But they are not welcome to abuse me and I will call out anyone who tries. This fat, disabled crone ain’t playin’.
    Also, diets don’t work long-term for more than about 5 percent of dieters. Most people regain the weight they lose and then some within five years. Eventually, one stops being able to lose weight. I know. I was able to lose weight every time I tried to hate myself thin when I was younger. Once I was over forty, forget it.
    Fuck dieting. The only diet I follow is the Fuck It Diet. Which is a real book, as it happens!

    1. Cie, this came from a very honest place. Endocrine system is the worst offender and I know it personally.
      People love to body shame, gender shame, colour shame and shame in any other way they can. Well, I don’t live for them so they can …themselves!
      Thanks for sharing.

  2. “Empty gut songs of endless, sadness sings!” says it all. I’ve gone over to intermittent fasting instead (only eat in an 8-hr block out of every 24.) It works without any suffering πŸ™‚
