I threw all of my Before pix in the garbage can.
I threw all of my dieting books in the garbage can.
I'm not starting over gain. I don't believe in food resets. I believe in a brain reset.
Constant restarts and food resets are a total disconnect for the brain.
If dieting really worked, it would take one diet, one time, to permanently fix you.
Just because someone rephrases all of the old dieting terms with new slick buzzwords, it's still a diet.
People who actually have a natural and 'normal' relationship with food don't ever start over. They don't take Before photos of themselves and put them on the fridge. They don't plaster photos of celebrities all over their house.
I've released a 100 lbs but will not be making comparisons with myself. The Old Me vs. the New Me. No side by sides, ever. I am one and the same.
Start observing those who've never dieted a day in their lifetime. Watch them closely. They simply move, live and enjoy all of their being. Dieting is foreign to them.
Actually visit a foreign country and see how the rest of the world lives. I've traveled all across Europe and over here in the U.S., we seem to have the most struggles with food and weight. They find our way of thinking about food to be about as nutty as a fruitcake.
I'm going back to my original factory settings. That's my overall goal and strategy for health and wellbeing. I've been duped by diets and led astray by those with disordered eating. I started thinking for myself outside of the perpetual loop of dieting.
Ooo, and I admire the old hands and veterans here. They inspire me. My strategy going forward is to not look to the left or right or back over my shoulder. I'm going to keep tooling along with my data points and stats. Thanks for listening.
