I’m working away but watching with one eye on the tv as the show “superskinny me” is playing. The premise is putting 2 female journo’s onto the latest mad diet crazes in an effort to see how close they can get to a size 0.. hollywood’s dream size.

In the space of 2 weeks and half an hour of reality tv, a thirty-something woman has gone from having all the appearance of confidence and assurance to a weight-obsessed, colonic-addicted halfshell of a girl.

I’ve been thinking for a little while that it might be time to take a break. Stuff like this makes me worry – because I think it would be so easy to become either completely obsessed or start to hide away in a binge-purge lifestyle in order to maintain… whatever normal is.
