If your a certifiable Fat Savage, (including ADHD and Hyperactivity) dieting is easier than thinking. I started my weight loss effort in August when I had issues that I simply didn’t want to address. Then in October, my office got robbed and vandalized and generally trashed – since papers were for three business activities covering the last 7 tax years and cradle to grave EPA reports for 10 years, the clean-up was one more activity that I didn’t want to face. This was followed by visits to my children and the Christmas Holidays. Since everybody is healthy and active, there were a lot more high energy days.
Well, as described, I have been successful coupling my fasting activities with my my high energy days and have lost 35 sustainable pounds over the past 5 months and am mentally prepared and on target for another 30 pound weight loss in the first few months of this year. As a matter of fact, as Just 10 suggests, controlling your weight and keeping in shape gets easier each year you do it. The side benifit is that you are just too tired to worry about very much and sleep well despite your problems.
Now the biggest problem I’m facing is relearning how to be sedentary without killing my diet. My personal problems have diminished without me making any decision at all, my office is still a mess, but if I don’t take care of those damn government forms, it will most certainly jeopardize my livelihood.
The sad part is in the area of EPA regulations, it doesn’t matter if you keep the environment perfectly safe and there are no taxes or fees to pay, but you are judged on the records you keep which certify your concern for the environment by documenting all your activities relative to the environment. If there is no documentation to prove it, then the assumption becomes you are a pig and didn’t do it.
Using my hyperactivity in a positive way to control my weight is the easy part, controlling my hyperactivity to complete my paperwork is the next mental war with myself.
Plain and simple – Fat Savages were not designed for the industrial age.
