I think most of the time obsession has a negative connotation. However I can see that there is a positive side to it as well. Even if it’s really small!
I find that on certain things I get obsessed with them. This whole weight loss/blood sugar/high blood pressure is currently one of them. I try and figure out everything that I can hoping some key, magic perhaps, will click and I will be healthy again. Perhaps that will happen but the reality is that this is going to be something I probably have to deal with the rest of my life. Maybe not be as obsessed with tracking everything but watching some of those things and being aware of them. So it’s positive that I can and do dive into these things.
On the negative side is the fact that I reach a point where I just drop everything and go back to what I know is normal. Sometimes this is after a couple of weeks sometimes this is after 18 months. Hopefully over whatever time I’ve formed some good habits so it’s not quite as bad but sometimes that is not the case.
Overall I wish I could find some middle ground where I’m watching it but am not so bloody obsessed with it.
Have a great rest of the year everyone.
