Part 4 of How to shed 55 pounds (and get healthy!) in Easy World

J at Red Rocks sm.jpgMe, at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheater last month--it's a long walk from the parking lot and I had no trouble at all!

Besides losing weight, my body is so much healthier overall. I am off all medication for rheumatoid arthritis except ibuprofen when needed, and I have needed that less and less till I have lately been noticing that I have gone whole days without even thinking of taking it. If you know anything about RA, you know this is remarkable!

My walking is so much better that I was able to walk around most of the floor at INATS a few weekends ago--I went 2 days in a row--and it's in a huge exhibition hall at the Denver Merchandise Mart and I'd had to walk quite a ways from my parking space even to get in the door. Did I feel it in my knees afterward? Yes--some, and I honored that and hastened to put my feet up when I got home while my lovely husband made a run to get Middle Eastern food (vegetarian, of course) for me so I didn't have to stand up to prepare something. But it didn't sideline me and I recovered very rapidly. I'm able to work out vigorously in my little swimming pool, and swim normally without having to do what I was doing before which is modifying my strokes to allow for joint pain.

I will not claim that there are no challenges. My longtime addiction to coffee/caffeine has proven to persist, and while I go weeks without it, there have been times when the demands of the upcoming book launch have seduced me into consuming the stuff. That has been the case lately, much to my dismay. While caffeine serves one purpose--to jump start me when I'm wanting to answer the alarm of the Difficult World Dictator who is telling me there's too much to do not to be snapping into action the minute I wake up--it does not serve my health, especially with adrenals that are stressed out.

Addictions are definitely the continual summonses of the Difficult World Dictator.

So the caffeine issue is something to address. Instead of resistance, dynamic surrender to my Spirit--the aspect of me that is always in Easy World--is the path through that--and any other difficulty. I still have a ways to go before I will have finished releasing the excess weight, but I'm enjoying my current plateau as it's allowing me to have clothes to wear that fit! (I bought clothes to get me through the summer because everything I had was several sizes too large.) I know that when it's time to take off more lbs., it will happen easily and naturally the way it has to this point.

So, to sum up my success formula for getting healthy and shedding the excess weight, with all the wonders that come along with that, I believe you need to surrender the process to your Spirit, release resistance, allow yourself to come into alignment with your divine blueprint, and trust your internal wisdom to take over and inspire you to want the things that are healthy for you and to simply find those that are not to be unappealing or, at least, no big deal. An important facet of this is to tell yourself you can have anything you want so there's no resistance within you--nothing to push against.

What are typical diets about? Resistance. They're about employing will power to resist eating things you'd enjoy and about eating what others tell you to eat instead of honoring your own body's wisdom. Resistance always puts you in Difficult World. The experience of Easy World is sustained by allowing.

When so many were preaching to me to just cut my calories or whatever their diet prescription du jour was, I knew that will power wasn't going to work for me. I knew it would take the kind of magical shift that has, indeed, occurred, once I surrendered to my Self. I knew it would take the kind of realignment only my Spirit could perform. And I was right.

The End (for now!)
