When I am trying to lose weight, my whole world seems to focus on it.
Some of you may know how it works. You decide to cut back on your eating.
More exercise is needed so you make a plan to start or add to your exercise routine.
And then food starts jumping out at you.
When you don't want to make a big deal of this change you are trying to make
Suddenly it becomes the only thing that has focus.

Major street construction had just been completed with new streetlights
