Let Spirit form you anew

I felt troubled and anxious as I walked past a window display that featured literally dozens of books on diet, exercise, and assorted figure problems. At this particular time I was heavier than I had ever been, and it alarmed me.

Over a period of years, I'd heard about people who dealt with overweight through prayer based on the teachings of Christian Science. But as my weight went up, in response to a craving for sweets, and down, in response to various kinds of diet and exercise schemes, from high school on, I never paid too much attention to healings of overweight. In the first place, to tell the truth, I doubted they had really happened. And in the second place, I somehow had decided that kind of radical reliance on Truth was for other people, not for me.
