We had a new girl start in the office yesterday...and by the end of the day...I knew she was on a diet. I knew because she mentioned trying to stick to a certain routine for her lunches.
And it got me thinking...
How crazy is it that I don't know one woman at peace with food. I don't know one woman who eats for the joy of it. Or at least eats for the joy of it and then doesn't question it or feel guilty if too much joy was had. I don't know of one woman who doesn't doesn't have to think about, mull over, anguish about...food.
You remember in Eat Pray Love when Julie Roberts went to (um...Rome I think?). And how she decided to just eat. Not to become unhealthy, but she wanted to give up all the worry and just enjoy.
Do you know of such people? And they can't be bullshiters. Like those people who pretend they never think about it.
What about you guys from other countries or those of you well traveled?
It's daunting isn't it? Maybe it should feel comforting...all of us being in the same boat.
