It would be OK if you thought I liked the way the Birds of Prey characters were drawn. New Brunswick sure had a flip-flop election.

Mutant Diet Phase 8 Day 67
I can declare yesterday a rare success in diet. I burned 1500 more calories than I ate and the food was on track. I am a little closer to my 2-week chocolate and sweets prohibition.

But chemically I feel weird. The body seems to react fast and tells me that the middle is changing. But why is this not sustainable? Is it just the addictive properties of the food when you dive into Halloween, for example?

There’s a good feeling, mixed with the stress, when you get a day correct. Why can’t that good feeling linger in the mind and offset temptation?

I remain perplexed.
