At Least, I'm Nice...



And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of Thine hands: Hebrews 1:10

I had so many different things I hid behind.  My being overweight was one of them. When I was at my heaviest, I used to not join in activities with other adults at my children's school. I figured that they wouldn't like me because I was overweight. So, I never even tried to get to know them on any level other than superficial hi's and bye's. I used to think that the other thin mothers were too involved in worldly things, but at least, I'm nice.

One day, one of the most attractive mothers of a student in my daughter's class approached me. I couldn't believe it and was suspicious of her motives.  How could someone that looked like a model want to be my friend? I figured that she was getting to know me, so that she could ask me to watch her child some time. You know what? She never did that. She just wanted to be friends. It turns out that people who look like models, sometimes, have difficulty making friends, as well.

When I ask God to heal my overeating and the control it has on my life, I sometimes doubt that I will ever be thin again. Then I remember that if God could create the whole world, He can surely take care of my overeating, that is, if I trust Him to. And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of Thine hands: Hebrews 1:10

Since I have used this Bible passage as an example of how God has positively influenced my overeating, this does not necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the verse.

I have decided to include Weight Loss Tip Videos instead of the Healthy Tips I have been doing prior to this to provide a wide variety of tips for weight loss. See Disclaimer. I, personally, lost the weight through prayer and good nutrition, and do not promote any weight loss gimmicks. Debbie
