The previous statement is not indicative of a faulty memory. I don't know because the definition of the verb to diet is not universally agreed upon. Is dieting a renewed commitment to eating healthy and getting more exercise, because you suddenly realize that you have put on a few pounds or have forgotten to work out for a few weeks? Does dieting apply only when you count calories, ban certain kinds of food and/or eat vast quantities of another, ie the Grapefruit Diet, the Dukan Diet? By the former definition, I have dieted. By the latter: hell no.
At this point in my life, I'm just glad to have all my original organs, and my original husband. I workout five times a week. I eat healthy. I enjoy an occasional square of dark chocolate or a mug of vodka. What I eat is determined by the need to control my high cholesterol and hypoglycemia ("CHEESE! I need MEDICINAL CHEESE!," I've been known to shout when I begin to feel light headed), not because I want to wear skinny jeans and relive my early 20s. Admittedly, no one is knocking on my door asking me to be Giselle Bunchen's body double. I'm okay with that. I don't want to be called a Yummy Mummy (*insert vomiting sounds*) and if someone called me a MILF, I'd kick him in the groin.
