A Course in Weight Loss Day 24 Lesson 16

Today we discuss discipline and discipleship and how it participates in our eating and healthier lifestyle. We talk about how we set our intentions before we eat and how we make sure we are eating healthier and smaller portions.

We also talk about how we treat ourselves when we ‘fall off the wagon.’ We are celebrating the small victories.

We are students and plan to always be. We want to surrender everything and be disciples to our Divine Guidance. We want to be malleable and molded into what we were meant to be.

Meditation means different things to us. I find it hard to do while Lizabeth finds it much easier. Lizabeth gets a little emotional as we recall some of our past meditations with dear friends who have now passed.

We are loving this study because it has nothing to do with the food or the diet but everything to do with the body, mind and spirit. It’s working for us.

Please add your comments below so that we are fed by you. Also, invite your friends to join in the discussion so that we can be fed by them too!

    Discipline for me varies depending on what it is related to. As far as keeping my room clean…forget it, but I rather like the clutter. I go so long and and then I can’t stand it and I will hang things up. I don’t beat myself up about this like I used to. I know when I want to declutter I will. I rather enjoy the freedom of not answering to anyone. My discipline as far as other areas comes and goes. There are things I really care about like my spiritual practice. i am tenacious about that. I don’t know what my day would bring if I was not mentally prepared in the morning. I wake up with a clean slate everyday knowing I have a new opportunity for excellence.

      Discipline as far as food is a growing exercise. I use a smaller plate and am aware of my fullness so to eat with awareness is important. When I go out I usually bring food home and then forget about it and leave it in my car and throw it away. I am shocked I can do this, but I have evolv ed in the last year. today I took my lunch to my studying session and never ate it because there was a blizzard and I was anxious to get home.

      There are times I amaze myself with my ability to walk away from poor choices. I just thank God for these moments when I can use discipline. I plan on going through the book again when we finish because I’m not finished. This is a lifetime change.

      Meditation is something I cannot miss. I get sloppy when I go to NYC because my kids are all over me, but I will make an effort this time to do it differently. I love that soulful quiet that happens in the morning. I get great fulfillment during meditation.

      • As far as clutter goes, please give me a little warning before you come over….I am not disciplined but recognize the need for it to go. I am working at it a little at a time. A friend of mine suggested a 15 minute clean to begin with. I think I am going to give that a try. Tomorrow. I can find 15 minutes.

        I am much more disciplined with choosing a healthier option…now. I used to not care enough to give it a second thought. I am more aware of my body and how the choices I make affects it, so I am paying a lot of attention to it now. (Especially since I just had an intense workout and feel as if every muscle has a really tight rubber band attached to it! lol)

        I will more than likely go through this course again as well. I am building a new lifestyle and until this becomes a habit, I will need to keep it up. Glad you will still be with me!

        I applaud your efforts while even in NYC. Be kind to yourself and enjoy!
