I just finished a book that is really inspiring. The book is called “Never Say Diet” by Chantel Hobbs. Ellen and I were just browsing a book store. I found it interesting to see a book about diet in the Christian section. This book was right next to “UnChristian” (another good one by the way). That seemed odd to me. Anyway, I picked it up and read a couple of pages and I was hooked. It took only a few days to have this one finished. This lady lost 200 pounds and did it healthily and is keeping it off.
I found out why it was in the Christian section. She writes the book from a Christian perspective. She tells of her decision to pray about her health. God placed on her heart to work at it and she trusted Him for help. That’s a real “nutshell” story of her decision, but I couldn’t stop reading. In fact, the book would be inspirational for any number of problem areas in our lives because it’s a book about trusting God to help us out of a tough plight and doing what it takes to make necessary changes in our lives in order to “do our best for Him.”
It’s very unusual for me to read a book of more than 200 pages in just 3 or 4 days. That tells you how inspirational it was. Pray for me as I try and work this plan. I’ve tried almost everything else to get in shape and I usually don’t announce things like this for fear of failure, but I’m going try this. It’s going to take a lot of time, but it’s going to be worth it. It seems very sensible and I sure like the idea of ditching dieting for the rest of my life.
