It's confession time. I haven't been to Weight Watchers in two weeks. I barely remember why. I think it had something to do with a combination of exhaustion and my son having the car.
I think I've gained weight. Well, I know I have.
I have a remarkable capacity for not giving a sh*t. I can get myself into that sort of mindset about just about anything. I guess you could call it a gambling technique. Except I will gamble with the big things in life. Like, I don't know, my health.
To get into that mindset you basically have to adopt the idea of having nothing to lose. Then it is easy to gamble everything.
You don't mess with people who feel they have nothing to lose. They will take bigger risks than you. Basically, there is no room for negotiating with someone who has nothing to lose.
It's the same technique I employed as a child when my parents sent me to my room. There really was nowhere I would rather be.
I suppose it is a gambling technique. I doubt I have adequately described the mindset.
Maybe ... it's sort of not knowing how to swim but diving into the water anyway.
Hmmm..... I'm sure I can do better than that. I'll think about it.
What has this got to do with weight loss? Well, when I know I've gained weight, or when I am DOING thing that will cause a weight gain, or NOT doing things that will lead to a weight gain, I adopt this mindset.
Which means that I have adopted this mindset for my weigh in tomorrow. I'm even going to wear jeans instead of my usual weigh attire.
Okay that's PARTLY because I am going somewhere tomorrow morning.
So I have a big weekend planned. We are going to the movies (with my son) - have to get material for my son's vest - go to weight watchers - go grocery shopping - get stuff for party tomorrow - not necessarily in that order.
Have a great weekend everyone!
