Long time no post. I have been in diet limbo for the past near month. On a whim, I ordered a long forgotten diet that had worked for me in the past, The Prism Diet, and had started it with full enthusiasm. It is based on Christian principles that when applied, are darn good. It requires a mentor to monitor your progress. This is very important. So, I called the number listed extensively throughout the book and the-all-important Curriculum Binder to ask the headquarters if they could find me a mentor. The number sent me to a recorded message that wanted to send me on a “FREE CRUISE!!!” Also, when searching for the diet and a basic website on Google, one is lead to a series of dead-ends mostly with people asking on chat rooms if the diet works or not (most decide that it is too rigid, to this I LOL’d a few times). There isn’t a website or a headquarters. Apparently, the diet is now defunct and the creators of it don’t care about you or their precious diet that was created for the masses. To be honest, I couldn’t even find an entire Curriculum (each section of the diet is grouped by 6 weeks of time, this is contained in the Binder as a whole; mine is missing the last 6 weeks) and only ordered a partial from Amazon; used of course. Then, I got bored. Then, I got angry.
It just isn’t working anymore. I think my body gave up on dieting and has taken the offensive against my good intentions. It is holding onto 25 pounds of fat like white on rice and I’ll be damned if losing it isn’t the hardest thing I’ve ever done, including training for a marathon!
Sooooo….. I made a little/big video just for my blogging friends. I’m sorry it is a half hour long, but it is straight from my heart and I could not find any of it to trim to make it shorter. It was filmed in my backyard on a breezy afternoon. So, if you get bored looking at me, you can watch the leaves dance behind me. This video explains my current thoughts on losing weight, what I plan to do in the future and what I think about diets. I’m sure you can guess, but I would be happy if you watched it anyhow. It just might give you some ideas if you are in a rut as well.
P.S. The blog will be different from now on based on these thoughts. I am even contemplating changing the image of this blog to reflect my new attitude towards eating and health.
