A dear friend told me that the weight to be aesthetically ideal is height in cm minus 110. That would put my "perfect" weight at 40 kg. So now you know how tall I really am out of my heels. Somehow I don't think I could ever be 40 kg, or look good at 40 kg, but I certainly should shed some weight. I'll make my goal 45 kg, for now. Sounds a bit on the thin side. Hm. But then again, I don't have a working bath scale (and I don't intend to buy another), so I'll just go 'til I think I'm healthily thin "enough."
As for the mind, I need to cut out some of the craziness going on inside my head. My mind is coming apart a little bit these days and I'd like to get it back together. So I'm going to go on a diet for the mind, too. I've always been interested in studying more Buddhist concepts, like detachment. I want to learn more about detachment and how to find a balance. Going completely mystic is not what I have in mind. I've read only one article on the Internet about detachment, and it says detachment comes after you achieve enlightenment. Is that right? Does anyone else know? Amida, I know you know something! Please share!
Please bear with me if I act a little looney or unusually quiet in the real world until I sort out my brain :)
