This year I had the big idea to lose some weight. I have been very busy with the mind training however. Now I think I am where I should be, so it’s time to start. I want to lose 25 kilos and I want to see if that is actually possible to do that with the Jenny Craig vegetarian food at my age of just 50 years.
We all need to exercise and train the mind to keep fit and healthy. Buddhist believe the only real state of health is Buddhahood. Once you have fully purified the body, speech and mind and attained the perfection of these qualities: generosity, morality, patience, enthusiastic perseverance, concentration and wisdom. Buddhas are fully transcendent, fully purified, fully all knowing, fully perfected, Awakened Ones.
I plan to be at the gym by about 8:30am and work out for a couple of hours a day doing a walk and about 20 laps of swimming each morning. How fast will the weight come off or be lost? I will blog about the experience and see how things progress. I don’t think I will suffer.
