I feel like an animal now! In hindsight, I’m assuming I feel like an animal now because I used to numb everything I was feeling with flour and sugar. Without flour and sugar I can feel my senses more vividly. I am sharper and the clarity of mind is amazing. I am more in tune with my instincts and intuition. My mental clarity is by far the biggest benefit yet even over the pounds I’m shedding.
I KNOW – I keep mentioning flour and sugar! But the absence of it from my diet has been so transformational.
I actually did feel like an animal before. I felt like a bear. I would store all the food I was eating and immediately want to hibernate. I would also isolate myself a lot and really look to the food for comfort and companionship. I would always see pictures of people having fun out with friends and family and silently say to myself “that’s great they had that experience. I don’t need people though because I’ve got food!”.
Now I feel more like a wolf…or a lion (that would make sense because I’m a Leo). I feel like food is there for me to survive, but the rest of my life is mine to mold and shape how I see fit. It doesn’t occupy my mind all day every day like it used to.
My sex drive has gone through the roof. I want to screw everything now but I digress…
The job I work in
I am more honest and expressive and I don’t hold things in anymore. Why should I? At my job I get angry with bullshit. Instead of eating over it I express that anger. Things have actually gotten better at the job because of it too. We’ve fixed some major problems. I do wonder…how long can you keep a lion in a box (the cubicle I’m in). I have no idea where I’m going after this job but I feel it’s fading because the person I came in here as is not the person I am today. I don’t know if this job can handle the real me. Maybe it’s just not a good fit anymore.in Uncategorized -
