It's almost that time. . . New Year's, the time to reflect and make resolutions. I hate New Year's. It always makes me depressed. The same blasted resolutions each year makes life seem futile.
I was reading Refuse to Regain--a post by psychologist Barbara Berkeley, called How Is Your IBM Doing? IBM is an acronym for Intake Balance Mechanism. She's using it about eating and food, mostly about sugars and starches. Of course, it's an interesting concept to apply to all of life, don't you think?
Anyhow, in her post, she talks about NOWs (never overweight people) and POWs (previously overweight people) and SAD (the Standard American Diet), but I didn't see an acronym for currently overweight people. (Afterall her site is about Refusing to Regain.) I commented on this. Surely, she wouldn't call us COWs, nor SOWs (still overweight people or struggling), so I guessed maybe just "OWs"?? That fits, I think.
She says, "Neither do I believe in many of the accepted theories about how we gain weight." Nor do I. I just, as of yet, don't have the thinner present to reckon with this. . .
So I have a few days to get ready to think about the new year. What I will and won't put on myself. Think specifically. Maybe think in only 2 week increments. . . Put more on actions than on rules. . .
Must go. . . told Dad I was going to get a shower 45 minutes ago. . .
