I'm Desperate Dieter, and this is my Doomsday Diary. This is where the truth will finally be told. About my obsession with trying to pretend my problem with weight didn't exist. And about how I fooled my friends, my family, the world, and even myself into thinking I wasn't really as fat as I am.
The truth starts today. So today I'm going to admit for the first time that I'm not just a little bit chunky. I'm actually around twice the weight of the average woman my height. And there is it, folks! The honest truth.
I just want you to know that although I'm primarily going to be doing this diet alone, your support and encouragement would sure help a lot. So keep coming back... read my diary... and feel free to post messages on my Message Board, or send me Emails with ideas, helpful tips, or even just a note letting me know I'm not alone.
I'm 37 years old and I've been lying to myself about my problem weight since I first knew how to lie. Now I'm going to stop lying and do something about it. Wish me luck!
Elena, the Desperate Dieter xx
