I watch my belly grow everyday. Sometimes I think, oh, I just ate, that is why it is round. And then I see it first thing in the morning and I realize, no, there is no food in there. It is simply round and becoming more so. What shall I do to combat my swelling abdomen? I must manage my weight! I must manage my caloric intake! I must toughen my weak spot for salty snacks and candy! I look to you to assist me!

You've been reading the journal long enough to know that I am no match for impulse eating. I think cracker, I eat cracker. I cannot stop myself. And then you come along and make the cracker okay for me to eat. You don't attempt to change my behavior, you simply fit a healthier option into my routine, my willful inertia.
You have saved me from myself! Please continue your good work! Find compelling work and inspiration from your peers below!
