Reboots, Restarts and When Not to Upgrade

on October 19, 2015

I haven’t posted in a week for a couple of reasons.  Physically and mentally, I’ve been exhausted when I get home at night.  I also made what turned out to be a mistake for my computer when I upgraded to Windows 10.  Nothing but problems and, again, I was just too tired at night to figure out a resolution.  Tonight I finally Googled for answers and found out that it’s pretty easy to resort to the previous operating system, so I did that.

Oh, if it was only as simple and uncomplicated to uninstall all of the things that we sometimes take on in our lives, only to find out that they don’t work the way that we need or want them to!  I can think of a bunch of choices I’ve made that I’d like to undo with a couple of clicks and then a restart of myself.

Right now, I feel like I’m fruitlessly and fitfully searching for an upgrade to my eating plan and daily food diet that will magically reboot my weight loss, resolve my cravings, help me make better choices and, just because I feel like repeating it, reboot my weight loss.  That’s the insanity of my head.  When I get a little crazy like that, I have to stop and remind myself that easy does it.  I have to avoid overcomplicating matters and stick to basics.  Eat healthy.  Eat in balance.  Keep working out.  Trust that results will come.  There’s no magic to it.  No big secret.  Eat healthy.  Eat in balance.  Keep working out.

I resolve to stop looking for some incredible, easy fix.  It doesn’t exist.  There is no special upgrade.  Each day I just need to restart on the sensible approach that I know works.  Eat healthy.  Eat in balance.  Keep working out.

  1. What I’ve always admired about you is your sensible nature. I read an article in the newspaper this weekend about a medical study that showed barometric surgery patients about year three out start showing higher suicide rates. One of the possibilities is rearranged brain cells. The other posit is patients being unaware and thus not recognizing and dealing with the food addiction. You’ve got that one covered, as each of your posts has shown. You recognize, and you’re sensible. You’re also pretty isolated from therapeutic opportunities where you live. Please recognize that factor also, and take advantage of every bit available to you in the keys. I think visiting your nutritional consultant was a great move. Keep it up — you’ve got followers who’ve been with you from the beginning and appreciate your honesty as you deal.

      Thank you so much for your comments and for the years of being present here. Do you have the name of the article or paper? I’d love to see if I can find it online.

      • Weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal, updated October 7, 2015. Data comes from a Canadian study out of Ontario, I believe. When I searched online to get this information to you – I read several newspapers and it’s hard to separate where I read something – I found several sites covered the results.

        Just this week, I decided not to take medical studies as last word. I read that high-fat dairy I shun is now considered healthy because of certain disease-protective factors and that the antioxidants I down in pill form protects against cancer, yes, but when cancer is present the antioxidants aid metastasis. So what’s a girl to do? Cuddle doggies, that’s what.
