241 – Flip The Switch

Flip The SwitchBeen doing a lot of thinking lately. As you can see, not making a lot of progress. The concept of “flipping the switch” is one that I wanted to talk about today. It’s a phrase that I utter to my son on a regular basis. His behavior can leave a little something to be desired from time to time, but he’s a good kid. He’s a kid that WANTS to be good. I tell him to “flip the switch” from being bad to being good. And more often than not, he does.

I’ve been thinking about applying this same line of thinking to my weight loss goals. When I quit dipping, I made my decision to quit. My switch flipped and I’ve never looked back. Why can’t I do the same thing with weight loss? I clearly need to lose weight. I clearly WANT to lose weight. But I’m still making bad decisions when it comes to what I eat and drink.

Behind The Bar

I’m resurrecting something here that I stared on another blog called Behind The Bar. Essentially I’m going to be taking a look at how much and how often I drink. The success  / failure of my weight loss is going to come down to 3 things in my mind: fast food, drinking and exercise. Taking an honest look at my drinking is going to be part of that battle. So, each month  on the 1st I’ll have a post that will be updated through the month with my drinking activities.

Flip the switch…
