I fantasized about what was in my inbox. Some kind of acceptance letter? A note from a long-lost friend? A request for an interview or quote? I imagined these missives the way dieters daydream about chocolate chip ice cream and cheesy nachos.
Of course, the only way my "social media diet" will work is if I stay with it. Just as with human diet counselors, it's easy to find excuses to disengage, which is one of the reasons I've had a lifelong battle with my weight.
