I feel as though I have a LITERAL switch. Healthy life ON. Healthy life OFF and honestly, I don't really understand the motivators for the switch to flip in either direction. In January I manually flipped it on, telling myself TOO BAD SO SAD YOU DID THIS TO YOURSELF NOW FIX IT. Then randomly, sometime in April the switch flipped off. I didn't want it to flip off. I was doing so well. 51lbs down! But that dang switch just flipped right off. Then today, I wake up and my first thought is 'I do not need to enjoy my food today. I need to enjoy how my food makes me feel'. I kid you not, this was my first thought and of course in my mind I was thinking the food along the same lines as yesterday (not junk). So, I guess my proverbial switch has been turned on again. I know because I have lost interest *for the moment* in writing my book. I am ravaging weight loss blogs like its my day job and I am just excited. BUT WHY? Is it that when I do one thing too long, I get bored? Is it that I need a sporadic break and my body tells me so every once in a while? I just don't get it. Anybody else see something that I don't? Chris? You are great at psycho-analyzing. Any ideas on WHY my switch flips involuntarily??
I am actually pretty stoked about tomorrow's weigh in.
