I'm at the end of what ended up being a six month experiment in listening to my body.
Since I'm coming to the end of the experiment, I'm feeling the need to recap where I've been and take a look at what's next. I'm going to use this journal to write about the experience in the hopes that during the writing, my new direction / next experiment / new chapter will occur to me or present itself.
I didn't start out to experiment for 6 months, I planned 90 days. The experiment process, however, was so successful for me that I expanded it and it just kept teaching me what worked best. After 6 months, I feel that I have really found what works best for me and I've made so much progress and change, that it has become effortless.
I now remain healthy and continue to lose weight, without working at it.
It's supposed to be work though, right? That may be why I'm looking for what to do next. I may need a new challenge. Can't I just be happy that this is easy? Apparently not. Perhaps I need to overcome that feeling, but I don't think I'm ready to do so. I think I want a physical challenge. If losing weight and being healthy is no longer a challenge, then I think it's time to turn it up, take things to a new level, and find a challenge to add to my healthful lifestyle.
