FAT TUESDAY: The Myth of ‘How You Feel on the Inside’

fat tuesdaySometimes I hear people say (oh, wait, maybe it was me), that losing weight is all in your mind.

‘Think thin and be thin’.  Or some crap like that.

 

I agree that losing weight is an inner struggle for most of us.  I also concede, from personal experience, that the war begins in the mind and heart….

…but the battle is won in the mouth and on the table.  I can ‘think thin’ all day long and still continue being the fat guy with a fit guy on the inside.  Wholeness needs both.

I've been in student ministry nearly 30 years…which generally just confirms how much I still don't know. Some days I'm the pizza-eating, over-responding, teaching-on-the-fly, desperate-for-volunteers, frustrated-with-co-workers youth leader that we all are. And sometimes…I knock it out of the park. I'm everywhere on social media that you are!

  1. I’m always surprised when I look in the mirror and see a fat guy, but that never helped me lose weight. Not until I decided to do what it takes to become the fit guy I always imagine I am. (And the way to that is a little different for everyone.)
