Time to hop off the emotional roller coaster
from Life On The Perpetual Diet... just one of the stories from The EDGE AND I by Tonya Thomas
"If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all."
That could easily be said about me--or at least when it comes to men. that is, until I met my husband Larry.
When I was a child, my mother used to tell the department store sales ladies that I was "chunky." She didn't want to use the F word. In this case, FAT.
Maybe that was the start of my life as a yo-yo dieter. I'd lose, I'd gain. I'd lose, I'd gain. During my fat periods, I'd be more likely to have a date with a package of cookies than a guy.
And so the struggle continued: me to try to lose weight, and for him to keep me fat.
And then I met someone else . . . and I had a decision to make. To stay with an insecure man who adored me, or risk all for a handsome guy who could offer me an exciting new life.
