This post is so inconsequential but I saw further down I had posted progress pictures. I was down 30 pounds. Since then I have lost an additional 20. I think I have lost a total of 50 in the photo above – but I lost something more along the way. A post in The Bereans got me thinking. For 9 months I have eaten, slept, read, researched and totally been consumed by my weight loss journey. It has become my idol – my “savior” in the midst of chaos. In fact, I have boasted about the sense of control this weight loss program gives me when the seas of life are tossing me about. I am obviously seeking peace and order in the wrong place. Only one Source can provide adequate spiritual nourishment. So while I am in no way giving up my journey to a healthier physical temple, I have to back off of the total obsession – God can help me finish this journey without my need to obsess.
