What are you thinking about right now? Food? Eating? Not eating? How much you weigh? How much you think you should weigh? How much you need to lose? How your life would be so much better if you were skinny (whatever that means)?
Weight loss can be a good thing for your body, but, as you know, weight control issues can become an unhealthy obsession for your mind and, hence, jeopardize your health, anyway.
Many people use food, eating, and weight control like a narcotic. When they feel out of control, they overeat. Or they don’t eat at all. They diet. Either response serves to distract them from the underlying feelings (fear, anxiety, depression, feeling weak, stupid, worthless, incapable, etc.).
Fixating on weight control also distracts you from more important and meaningful things in life, like God and your relationships. So, it can be a tool used by your Enemy to try to destroy you.
Don’t let the Enemy do that to you. Instead, “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:22).
In a nutshell, here’s what I want you to do: (1) Take your thoughts captive and police them; (2) turn off the food channel on TV, stop looking at recipes (you already have enough), and (3) when you’re tempted to eat some luscious dessert that your body isn’t hungry for, taste what is better and more satisfying than food: “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! (Psalm 119:103).
Try that approach and let me know how it goes. I believe you'll be better off in the long run.
