I’m not going to eat between meals and I’m not going to take seconds. Just today.e And I’m going to try it for a year to see what happens.
When that shutter closed in my brain and I stopped worrying about my ‘diet’, I used to be helpless. I’d walk into the kitchen to put a snack together, nothing special either — maybe just toast and cheese.t Or I’d go into the kitchen to get another spoonful of the casserole and another dinner role, almost a whole dinner when you think about it. And I often got the seconds and had a snack later — when that shutter closed, there was nothing between me and my urge to eat.
But now, I’ve got my responsibility to The Commitment. The shutter has tried to close — in fact, last night it flickered just a little. But rather than sliding into a dream-walking state and snacking like I wanted to, I was distracted just enough to snap out of it.p The Commitment whispered a reminder – “Don’t eat between meals or take seconds.” And I kind of shook my head, picked up my refried beans and walked briskly up the hall.
It sounds almost like science fiction I know. But, I think that it was actually just me taking charge of my own future._ I think that I was my own boss — just when I needed to be.
