Take the No Dieting Pledge.
Below is the No Dieting Pledge. If you want to take the pledge, please print, sign, and hang somewhere prominent (I suggest using the pledge to plaster over the “motivation” images currently hung on your refridgerator). To publically take the pledge, please write your name in the comment section of this post.
In 2014, I resolve NOT to diet. I will NOT spend my valuable time, money, and emotional resources to fund the over $60 billion weight loss industry that feeds off of my low self-worth. I will NO LONGER be convinced that I am a failure because my diet has failed me. I recognize that diets DO NOT work. The most predictable outcomes of dieting are weight gain, disordered eating, and emotional distress. I will NOT judge my self-worth by the number on a scale but by the quality of my person, the things that I do, and the way in which I live my life.
