It’s my turn today at Out of the Ordinary, and I’m talking about what a lot of us are thinking about right now–weight loss. This might be the most honest post I’ve ever written:
What I’ve had to learn, though, is that my problems with food didn’t start in my thirties. That just happened to be the age that I couldn’t hide it any longer. Losing weight and exercise are good things to do, but when my motivation is only to look good to others, I need to examine my heart before I worry about the size of my hips.
Tomorrow and the next day I hope to post two reviews of Christian books on weight. Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food by Lysa TerKeurst, and Love to Eat, Hate to Eat: Breaking the Bondage of Destructive Eating Habits. (I’ll tell you now that I thought Fitzpatrick’s book, Love to Eat, Hate to Eat, was better.)
For now, you can join me over at Out of the Ordinary.
