JulofDenial's Journal, 27 September 2014

Yesterday I weighed myself and while my eyes recorded the numbers as is, my brain, in typical fashion, transposed the numbers and yielded a higher reading. My emotions registered the brain's recording over and above my eyes' memory and I felt somewhat defeated all day to the point that I even rationalized a binge because I had "gained weight". But during the entire day, my eyes' memory kept sending signals of the truth to my brain, but I kept casting off those images with doubt. I didn't read the scale right? Yes, I did. No, your brain knows better. THIS is but one miniscule example of how our perceptions and judgments can be so awry and we have no idea until others correct or challenge us, or we revisit the situation or the problem. It wasn't until I weighed myself today that the numbers revealed another day of weight-loss, despite my emotionally-fuelled binge yesterday. Wow, do I feel completely like a bobble-head. I even double checked and triple checked, but the human brain....unreliable specimen.
