"God's image is not overweight, underweight, or out of control."
Would you like to lose a few extra pounds? Gain a few? Fit into those pants shoved to the back of your closet because they have felt tighter over the years?
If so, you're not alone. Statistics show that a growing number of people are concerned about their weight, in many cases fighting to keep the pounds off. Yet, for all the diets, exercise programs, and trips to spas, the overall population continues to lose ground in its battle with the bulge. One wonders if there is a more effective way to feel good about ourselves and our bodies.
There is a spiritual and effective way to control your weight. Rather than worry about how much or how little you weigh and what you look like in the mirror, focus your attention on improving the quality of your thinking.
