I also have control of the Self now and so, at the beginning of this year, I chose to change the way I look and went on a program to lose some weight. It is not a diet; my Self hates diets. I just exclude certain foods – mainly high carbohydrate foods and fruits. My Self, of course, hates it, but my Higher Self is so happy. I have so far lost 25 pounds (11 kgs). Of course, it is once again change, and I am surprised at how easy the change is for me now, and how strong I am in handling it. I know I will not go back this time as I have done in the past. Once again, I feel wonderful.
My knee is getting better, and I can now walk better. I have the intention of ice skating again at the end of the year. I have a homemade poster on my wall stating this to remind me of the thing I desire the most. Of course, this time I have the assistance of my Higher Self, whereas in the past, the Self has kept me from it. Now, it is the Self that does not have control, and it has become a miserable energy that I am attempting to ignore – most of the time successfully. My energy is the best it has ever been, so I must be doing something good. I have no intention of being thin, but I do intend to lose quite a bit of weight and feel healthy and more agile in doing so. Each day I watch as the Self brings out the big guns and begins its daily tirade of why I should not lose the weight. It is not winning and, with the Higher Self there now, it never will again. Thank goodness for metaphysics and the understanding of it. I have carried the weight in at least one other incarnation. It is time now to let go of it.
