I read an interesting statistic recently - only 1 in 100 people who diet actually keep the weight off long-term. I knew the success rates were low but didn’t know they were quite that bad. But from my own, albeit fairly limited experience of dieting, I’m not surprised either. I say ‘limited’ because I’ve only really tried one diet, although I’ve tried it maybe six or seven times. Another shocking statistic I heard once is that many (or is that most?) women diet throughout their lives, many being completely governed by their obsession with food.
This happened a few years ago...my son and his cousin both 5 were playing in my parent's garden. My parents have a big garden, it's about 200 foot long but it's not enormous and it's surrounded by a hedge/fence all around. Anyway, they were playing outside alone which I thought was completely fine.

I’m sure I have but can’t remember who. I know I’ve met people – men and women who never looked at me or answered every question I asked to the male person I was with.
