The Mental Shift

Saturday was the last day of the magic juice. Rumor has it, I danced around the living room singing “The Final Countdown” today. Five days of liquids turned out to be quite beneficial. There is a substantial difference in how I feel. My energy levels are higher than they have been in years. I’m feeling very optimistic about the future.

I had a chance to sit with Dr. Danny this weekend and talk more about my progress through this diet. He asked me what my mental shift was. In other words what thought process got me to the point to where I would begin this diet. As we were talking I told him all the answers I thought were true. However, I couldn’t get that question out of my head for some reason. I thought about it all weekend. I knew that what I told him was true but I also knew there was something more, something I didn’t even know myself yet. Until …

It occurred to me that the reason I began this process was simply because I wasn’t sure if I could finish it. I have miserably failed at diets previously in my life. It would take forever to get thin and within a moment to be not thin again. I needed to see myself start an diet and live it out to the fullest. Simply put, Could I actually do this? And what will it feel like to do it successfully?

Have you done something simply to see if you could finish?
