Going Against the Grain — Not Your Typical Weight Loss Advice (Part 1)

If your weight is not a concern you’ll want to skip this series of posts.  Over the next couple of weeks I’ll pitch out to you some new things to chew on.  Some not so typical thoughts on weight.  Some slightly new twists to common health and weight management messages.

Sources of reputable health information are easy to find in our information society — hospital newsletters, newspaper health columns, and online weight loss information articles, to name a few.  What people often see are standard messages about good nutrition or losing weight.  Along the lines of ‘Move More, Eat Less’.  Please understand that these articles contain sound health tips and advice.  I wholeheartedly agree with the well researched information.  Don’t ignore these helpful articles.  (I plan to post basic health information on occasion myself!)  The repetition of good advice can remind us to do the right things to take care of our health.  How many times in the Old Testament did God repeat the message to His people to repent and return to Him?  I don’t know either, but it was a lot!

Here’s where I’m going with this series:  I would like to challenge you to think outside the Corn Flakes box.  Chew on something meatier than usual.  To encourage you to go beyond common knowledge and find motivation from a different angle.

Action is where knowledge becomes real.  If knowledge were the only requirement for a healthy lifestyle we’d be set.  If hearing God’s Word was the definition of Christianity, we would miss the purpose of a transformed life that results in active ministry.  James 1:22 (NKJ) reads, “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”

We are thinking, reasoning, smart women.  Let’s push the envelope a little, OK?
