So yesterday I might have scared you out of dieting. I said it was forever—it is. But it’s not a death sentence. In fact, it’s a life sentence. Why are you dieting? Is it because everyone else is dieting and you are a follower? Your reason for dieting has to carry you the rest of your life. As I have lost weight, my blood pressure has dropped into normal. My energy level is higher. I’m not on any medications. My belt size has dropped as well. For me, it is about health. Okay, I’m in my 70’s so health is important. Well, it’s just as important if you are in your 30’s or 40’s. Obesity causes so many health problems. Plus I’ve seen some pictures of me that just are not flattering. “Abstain from all appearance of evil” (1 Thessalonians 5:22). Though being fat isn’t evil, it can appear as something not good. Most people profile the fat person into a negative pigeonhole. That can lead to all sorts of insecurities and anxieties. Tomorrow I’ll tell you about a call I got from a heavy person.
