future former fatties

I’m exhausted from pretending that I’m exactly the person I want to be. I’m tired of pretending to have a good relationship with food. I don’t. It’s time to come out of the baked goods cabinet and confess to the world that I have a real addiction.

It’s said that if you do something that fills you with guilt, and you admit to the deed and take responsibility for it, you’ll feel as if the weight of the world has been lifted from your shoulders. If that’s true, then by the time we get to the end of this book I should feel very light indeed.

Don’t be afraid if you recognize yourself in these pages. We share a kinship, you and I. We understand each other. It doesn’t matter what others think—besides, you’ll find that they’re committing the same sins as you and me. Not all the confessions in this book are mine.

I’m here to confess my food sins to you, loudly and succinctly. Hear me now! I am a foodie! I am at fat foodie! I promise to cleanse my soul from the demonic addiction of binge eating! Heal! Heal my soul! And for God’s sake, drop some weight!
