Am/Am Not. Life's too short. And, you should know. 

First off, what is a blog without a blogger? That’s right…an annoying SEO site. Since this is not one of the latter, allow myself to introduce myself. 


I am Jessica. 26 years old. Self-proclaimed post-obsession blogatrix.


I am a retired competitive swimmer, hanging up the suit after 2008 Olympic Trials. I am a medical student at large. I live in Brooklyn, NY. I am a writer and an editor for a major educational company. All that is great but largely irrelevant to One Girl No Diet.


What is relevant is that, I hate hearing about your diet as much as you hate hearing about mine.  


So, what am I doing about it? Nothing crazy. I’m just NOT on a diet.  


I know what you’re thinking. “Ugh. Another fat girl trying to make being overweight/out-of-shape/lazy OK. No way.” hey you. it's me.


HOLD UP. In a nutshell, I am neither short nor tall; skinny nor fat. I’m 5’6” and a size 4.  Aside from a few digressions, I’ve been this size since I stopped getting taller (dammit!) at age 15.


I have evolved to realize that there is too much to be done, too many delicious things to eat and drink and too many spontaneous moments to obsess about food or even be on a diet.


So hooray. Life’s too short to be unsexy. And worrying isn’t sexy, pet.
