Today was Day One #113. The astute reader will realize that the last post ended with me embarking on Diet #112. The kind reader will know it’s not polite to ask, “So what happened with the one hundred and twelfth attempt?”
But I’ll tell you anyway. Diet #112 began on Monday, February 3, 2014. It ended yesterday with an overall half-pound gain (though at one point I was down four pounds).
It’s clear the switch still isn’t on. And, as I look back through all the times where the switch has gotten flipped on, I’ve noticed one thing. It always flips on due to some sort of catalyst. Something in the real world happens to you—physically, psychologically, emotionally—and you’re just on. My problem over the last three months has been the distinct lack of that.
Fortunately, I got me one of those today.
Whether it lasts or not, we’ll see. But I feel good about it so far. (Hence, why I felt compelled to post again just one week after my last post, instead of waiting the now-customary one month between posts.)
One interesting bit of trivia… I went back to the very first recorded weight entry (May 1, 1990) and compared it with yesterday’s weight. The difference? 0.0 lbs. Nearly 24 years of ups and downs and downs and ups and the net result: nothing.
Food for thought. 🙂
