It really is amazing how we as human being change and adapt. I’ve been reminded of it a couple of time in the last 2 months.
In the previous post, I referred to a practical joke. The practical joke being a pregnancy scare. I’m not pregnant. And I’m really glad I’m not pregnant. On a practical level, financially, physically and emotionally I am so grateful I am not pregnant. Because of the medical complications we had when Oli was born, I am extremely thankful I am not pregnant. And yet there is a
little huge part of me that once I got over the initial shock of “I might be pregnant”, got excited started planning for the baby / choosing names / etc.

While working through the ifs and what ifs of my possible pregnancy I was confronted with the things that matter to me. The things I’ve been working for since the beginning of the year with very little success. I am referring to the weight-loss in particular: I have been obsessing and in all fairness, I haven’t seen/felt any results. That is when I made a little pact with myself. “If” by some bizarre turn of events I am going completely crazy and it turns out I am not pregnant, I am going to give this whole “banting” thing a try.
I have kept the personal-pact with me and I took the time to deal with the emotions and now I am applying myself in a different direction. I started my banting lifestyle on the 30th of June. Today is day 12. I haven’t had a cheat, I don’t feel the need to a cheat.
