Kick in the Tush Tuesday: Any Virgins Out There???

Are there any Weight Loss Virgins amongst us?  Any Virgins out there???  I’m assuming not so many. But if you are a Weight Loss Virgin please do raise your hand, and yell out as loud as you can, “VIRGIN here!”  And if you are not a Virgin, pretend that you are one and yell out “VIRGIN here!”

Being a Weight Loss Virgin is kind of like having Beginner’s Mind.  Do you know about Beginner’s Mind?  Beginner’s Mind is very Zen, very Buddhist. 

Beginner’s Mind isn’t about lacking knowledge; it’s an attitude…
… an attitude of energy and excitement that comes from learning new things.

It’s a desire to explore.   In this case, to explore all the things you don’t know about your thinking, your beliefs around ‘weight loss’ (a.k.a. weight removal, dropping of pounds, slimming down, permanent fat removal).   It’s about leaving your Weight Loss Baggage at the door.

Some of what you already know, or think, or believe may be useful; some of it not.  That said, if you’ve tried numerous times to ‘drop’ or ‘let go of’ the excess, and you’ve not been entirely successful, then it’s a better strategy to approach this journey with Beginner’s Mind.

With Beginner’s Mind, there’s no judgment, censoring, editing or preconceived expectations.   It is the opposite of “Expert Mind.”  It’s not that you don’t know ‘stuff.’  You have led a rich and interesting life that is chock-a-block with plenty of meaningful lessons. And, perhaps you’ve walked, skipped or jumped down this road before.

Today, I am respectfully asking you to check all that you are carrying around with you; all the preconceived notions, beliefs, thoughts, judgments at the door.  And when you re-enter come in with Beginner’s Mind or … if you are a Madonna fan …  re-enter like a Virgin, for the very first time!

What does Virgin’s Mind mean to you?  What does it look like?  What does it sound like?
