The Mind Can Be a Terrible Thing

The mind can be a terrible thing 

Several months ago, I decided to get serious about losing the 20 pounds that had stealthily accumulated around my midsection.   

By careful attention to my diet, basically, eating tons of vegetables, I slowly whittled away at the excess weight.   

In a month or so, my weight crept fallen from 184 to 174 pounds. After that, however, I seemed stuck. I just couldn’t seem to drop any more weight.     

Then one day, I climbed on the bathroom scale and discovered that I had dropped another 5 pounds overnight.  Confused by the sudden loss of 5 pounds I reweighed myself and, sure enough, I was down to 169!   



Needless to say, I was ecstatic, and a bit amazed.
