ACHIEVEMENT. n. "The death of endeavor, and the birth of disgust" From the Devils Dictionary by Ambr

Sunday, March 31, 2013

Well here we are, the last day of March, Easter Sunday, and I am posting a slight new low weight. I am "moving in" to this body now. This "old" new body is a delight to me in so many ways. So why does this Bierce quote resonate with me? In 12 more days I will have written down every bite of food I have eaten for 365 days, if I in fact continue that "streak". I am fairly certain that short of a coma I will complete that goal. It did after all, return me to a weight where I can attend Weight Watchers meetings for free, in case I need to, and where I am frankly completely pleased with my looks and my health.
How does this relate? I have a real problem with change apparently. I have been "acceptable" as far as my weight goal is concerned since November 7 of last year.
My next goal is to STAY in a range that keeps me content with my weight and health, hopefully for life. Today I am meeting that goal. So here is a brand new endeavor, why is it not Alive ? Why do I keep looking at the other goal, the one where I was striving to be here. What makes this one less.... fun? How much of my "juice", my creative self, do I want to spend on this new "now I will stand still right here" goal? Another year of writing down every bite I eat? I think not. I am going to begin a new adventure on April 13th. I will step on my friend the scale each morning. The squeal weight is 163. If I see that or more, I will put my food into Spark until I see something less. If I see something less, I will live my life with eyes wide open, looking for something else to spend my creative fire on.

    Great determination! Change is a difficult thing, even when it is for something good.

I'm very impressed with you food logging streak.

Keep up the great work!
