Several years ago I wrote an article called Confessions of a Fat Dietitian. It appeared in Today's Dietitian magazine. After the article was published, we started a private list serve for fat dietitians. Private because we wanted to be able to express ourselves freely. Then I started this blog. Today I found out that someone else has a blog called Fat Dietitian aka Confessions of a Fat Dietitian. The owner of the blog is NOT even a dietitian. She's a student. It takes a college degree, a one year internship and passing a national exam to call yourself a dietitian so if you're still in school, you're not a dietitian. I'm kind of bummed that she "stole" my title (Confessions of a Fat Dietitian) although I didn't do anything to make it mine. I didn't trademark it and just because it was published in a magazine doesn't mean it belongs to me or to the magazine. I feel "violated". It's enough to make me eat. Not really. I don't do that. I'm not an emotional eater. I'm a pleasure eater. Food that tastes good calls out to be eaten.
That's all. By tomorrow I probably won't care but today I do care that someone has usurped my title.
