I am an obsessive blogchecker and was so excited just to see a new post this morning.And then I saw this and cried.You don't know how much it means to me to have my journey validated in this way.I have been worried that because I had changed my path people would reject my blog.

It is so important for me that this idea catches on, for me and every female in my life that has tortured themselves mentally and physically in the past through dieting.I believe as the non dieting movement grows in strength that other women will feel safe to end the quest for the perfect '10', That women will reject societie's standard measure of a woman's worth,her waist size.

I am so glad to find you

You don't need to have other people validate your journey Lisa - you can do that for yourself! You've made a strong and wise choice already so keep up the good work, accept it won't all be an easy ride and keep on looking for support whenever you need it.

  • I'm Andrea, and am obsessed with creating fabulous food. After I managed to ditch dieting, the reason Chocolate and Beyond was born, it seemed natural to evolve my site into a foodie blog. More so since I also ditched animal produce to be vegan. Now, I love showing how inventive cruelty-free cooking can be. And sometimes I like to rant, too. I wouldn't be myself otherwise :) x

    PS. This blog LOVES your comments! Especially about the food!
