Weight Loss Is About Being In The Moment

Losing weight, just like all the rest of Life, is always about learning to deal with both the expected (and hoped for), along with the unexpected.

All planning ahead should come with a huge "Maybe" written in the small print. (Which is not the same as saying "I'll try," because that only sounds like an escape clause.)

This is accepting that Life can interfere with the best formed intentions. Learning to go with the flow and remember that nothing is permanent are my ...
Losing weight, just like all the rest of Life, is always about learning to deal with both the expected (and hoped for), along with the unexpected.

All planning ahead should come with a huge "Maybe" written in the small print. (Which is not the same as saying "I'll try," because that only sounds like an escape clause.)

This is accepting that Life can interfere with the best formed intentions. Learning to go with the flow and remember that nothing is permanent are my true goals.

Even while using all the traditional methods of losing weight, I hope to rely upon using a mindful approach and the spiritual wisdom I find in Buddhist ideas as my foundation, guide and strength.

My Goals:
I would love to weigh anything close to the "normal" weight for my height! I can't even remember when that last applied to me :-)

My Program:
Using a sensible plan for eating, low-ish on carbs (other than vegetables & fresh fruits), mostly vegetarian, with occasional times of salmon and other healthy seafood for the essential omega oils.



Other Information:
It seems important to me that we learn to value the concept of "enough."

The Four Noble Truths
1. There is suffering.
2. Clinging to/craving for what is pleasurable and aversion to what is not, lead to dissatisfaction.
3. Suffering ends by letting go of the attachments.
4. The Noble Eightfold Path is the guide for letting go of attachments.


The Noble Eightfold Path:
1. Right understanding
2. Right thinking/intention
3. Right speech
4. Right action
5. Right livelihood
6. Right effort
7. Right mindfulness
8. Right concentration

I was reading some quotes from Eckhart Tolle on a break at work today, when I was feeling very bitter about the same old mistakes other people made. He was pretty hard on one of my favorite activities, done, as I used to think, in the name of insightful, analytical, critical thinking: complaining. It is so hard for me to face that I'm way more dramatic about the situations than I need to be. I used to get stroked by colleagues at work who said it showed I cared, that I was passionate. But I'm starting to see it differently. Honestly, it's not fun yet, but I can see how it could lead to an important shift.

Not quite food related, but because of your posts about resentment/acceptance, I thought this would make sense to you.
