Ripples

Change creates ripples. Drama creates waves. I prefer ripples to waves. I can walk on ripples. So can you.

How to Loose Weight

Wow, it sure appears I am going off subject today, but that’s because you may have missed some earlier topics I discussed here on Uduzit. Actually, this is the fourth post I am doing on the subject of weight loss.

I was tag surfing on WordPress this morning and found a post that hit me in the heart. I know the pain and the confusion of being overweight. I knew it was impacting my health issues. My problem was, I couldn’t find anyone with answers.

Then I started asking questions, and yes, there are a number of posts here on that subject. When I asked questions I got the answers I needed. I just had to hear them.

While I was making my list of questions, I realized I needed information about cause, not symptoms.

Being overweight is about me taking in more calories than I needed. Excess weight is about excess calories, and no the answer is not exercise. The answer is about how many calories reach my stomach.

When I realized the industries that feed the government “facts,” I realized that the presentation of some information may be a bit biased. I looked at the recommended food pyramid for Americans, and started laughing.

I went to the chart on how many calories I was to eat each day for fats and carbohydrates. That was the eye opener. It was recommended I eat 1500 calories a day in carbs, and 500 grams of fat for my weight goals.

Something appeared out of balance. Sugar is like nitro, and fat is like diesel, when we realize we are talking about the fuel that runs our body. Nitro is a quick burn, and diesel fuel is a slow burner. Problem is, excess fuel gets stored, not burned.

I realized that sugar was my nitro. It gave me a quick energy rush, and when I didn’t burn it up, I carried it around. I realized my weight problem started at my mouth, and was caused by how I thought my body should be fueled.

Learning how to get my body running on less sugar became my goal. It was quite easy, and I used the Atkins diet for guidance. Eating a few hundred calories less sugar each day, became an easy task as my metabolism changed to burning fats.

This sounds simple and it is. I just had to learn some new ways to eat, and that has been fun. I eat everything and anything I wish now. My portions also became smaller, and as they did, I became smaller too!

The Seven Core Beliefs

It seems only fair that I state that there are seven core beliefs that guide the words you read here on Uduzit. These are my personal beliefs, and they are seen in a great deal of what I write.

Many of the early posts on Uduzit discuss these subjects. You can explore these ideas further by using the Search feature in the column to the right. Try the term “asking questions,” and you will get a page full of results.

But now, on with the rest of the story.

The Seven Core Beliefs of Uduzit

  • It feels as if Lewis Carrol and I learned many of the same lessons. Life is like a reflection in a mirror. Everything that I see is really about me, not them. I am disconnected from nothing and connected to everything. Everything means, everyone and everything in the Universe.

  • Early on, I learned that to resist anything, was to empower it. That never meant being weak, or even passive. It did mean learning when to step aside for a moment.

  • In Judgment, I become what I judge. Yesterday, I grumbled to myself that I had cooked a great deal of rice, for certain people living in my home, to prevent them from burning my pan. Yesterday, I burned that pan cooking rice.

  • The lessons of Universal Law are very apparent when I understand what I am looking at. The Law of Attraction appears to be the foundation for everything that I am now experiencing.

  • It was primary for me to learn that there are two Thought Systems available in life, and that I may choose only one. When I learned that I had an alternative to the World of Fear I perceived. I choose instead a world of Peace.

  • My perceptions guide my experience. I can choose to see things differently, and I can ask for help in accomplishing this. Spirit has always provided any guidance I have requested to gain a clearer insight in to my experiences.

  • Asking questions, and hearing the answers, was primary. Learning to trust this process taught me that there is something outside myself that is walking with me, and providing me guidance. I call this Spirit.

You will see more posts on Uduzit exploring these concepts, but I have not missed the fact that many of you arrive here, because of our shared interest in blogging and computers.

May we continue enjoying our shared interests.

Ever Notice

Ever notice, how the top half of the bag always seems to last longer than the bottom half, and how your razor lasts forever when you have a spare? Smiles. ET

Uduzit

Having just moved to a new country, I needed a driver’s license. So I hired a local driving instructor, but walked away puzzled. I found other instructors, but their techniques were the same.

Couldn’t figure out why these people wanted me to drive backwards, always looking in the rear view mirror?

I pondered the realities of living in a mountain village. It could be that driving backwards is a skill necessary to avoid being trampled by something bigger than my car. That thought got my attention.

Learning to drive backwards was strange, but the rules are quite clear. I have to remember where I am heading, see what’s coming toward me, and out run what’s after me.

From all this I came to understand that going backward, sometimes accomplishes the same thing as going forward. More important still, I was the one in the driver’s seat and learned I could choose to go any direction I wished.

Yet no matter my direction, my experiences are always created by my choices. I am the producer of the drama I call my life. Backward or forward, it has been a process of taking control of what I am producing.

Becoming responsible for what I experience, I have created a whole new life for myself. There is nothing I have done that you can not do yourself. It starts in knowing: U Duz It !   ET
