Visual metaphor...

Monday, October 08, 2012

Thank you Norman Thelwell for an illustration that matches my current weight loss efforts :) Not to be obvious, but the runaway horse is my current state of eating, the rider is me. I am a former equestrian, so for me this metaphor works great - this is how I FEEL!!! Now...I've been on real life runaways before - I know I need a good strong pulley rein and turn 'em in a circle, so every time I walk toward the table at work that has the homemade cupcakes on it, I imagine how that rein would feel and I turn right. So far, today, it is working and today is all I'm going to ask for right now.

    I got a kick out of this - and I identify! Sometimes a mental picture can help steer us away from those mindless temptations in ways that nothing else can!
