Day 81 of 120

So I mentioned earlier in the week that my head just hadn't been in the game, it was like the switch just flipped off for a couple of weeks and that's why this new plan sounded so appealing.  I KNEW that I would be forced to be focused and that I would get my head where it needs to be. 

I fully believe that weight loss is a mind game.  I know how to lose weight. Eat less, move more. Duh!

But, if your head isn't in it, it doesn't matter what you know, you're going to do what you WANT, not what you know. 

Smokers probably know that cigarettes will kill them.
Drug users probably know that drugs will kill and mess you up big time.
Alcoholics probably know that having just ONE drink isn't a good idea.
A food addict knows that ordering a double cheeseburger through the drive thru is not a good idea.  

So it's not simply "knowing the right way to do it" that will keep you from sabotaging yourself.  I believe that your head and heart, needs to be 100% in the right place to stop and control yourself.  No matter how much I know that the double cheeseburger will kill me, if I want it bad enough, the drive thru isn't that far away.  

So you see, for me, I need my head in the right place.  I needed the switch flipped on. I knew that this plan would help get that switch back on. I can't imagine sticking 13 days with this diet and then on day 14 going through the drive through for a Big Mac and fries. It just isn't going to happen.  

The switch is on.


  1. YAY, YOU!!! I glad you switch got flipped! Mine too! This has really helped me refocus.

    Btw, I got the book yesterday! Getting home late last night, I opened it today. I'll start reading tonight after I finish visiting blogland. Thanks so much!!!

  2. YEAH!!! I knew you could do it. Keep it on girl.
    Take care and have a blessed evening.

  3. I agree that weight loss is a mind game. It can be hard at times. Glad you are getting back into the game!!! You are doing great!!!

  4. So. True. Weight Loss is more than just knowing what to do and it's even more than wanting it. It's that switch that has to be turned on! Even when I'm eating like a pig, I still know I shouldn't, and I know that I want to lose weight, but until every part of me is in the right place, or the flip is switched so to speak, I'm just not going to do what I know I need to do. So glad that this has gotten your flip switched! :)
