Weight loss can be a difficult cross to bear, especially with all the confusing messages in the media. As Christians, it can also be challenging to focus so much attention on our appearance, and some find weight loss a selfish pursuit. Yet our bodies are gifts from God and we must care for them. Following are a few common pitfalls and how to overcome them, along with some inspiration from Scripture.
“Beloved, I hope you are prospering in every respect and are in good health, just as your soul is prospering.” - 3 John 1:2
