What's in a name?

All right I thought I'd share what my username means
I wanted to come up with something meaningful
when I was on sparkteens, my username was 'TBLlover429'
standing for 'The Biggest Loser lover'
I mean, I do like The Biggest Loser!
But my username 'WhyWeight552'
why weight (like why do I have to be overweight? Sometimes I wish God made us all with fast metabolisms! lol but I know it's all on me for my weight problems)
but also
why wait?
why wait for a right time to lose weight?
and the 552 number stands for a Bible verse from Isaiah:

Isaiah 55:2

New Living Translation (NLT)

2 Why spend your money on food that does not give you strength?
Why pay for food that does you no good?
Listen to me, and you will eat what is good.
You will enjoy the finest food.
(taken from http://www.biblegateway.com/pa

I like the part that says "why pay for food that does you no good?"
it's so true!
why do I pay for fast/junk food that's only going to make me feel worse and get me fatter and make me tired and unhealthy??
or why spend my money on food that won't give me strength?
but the second part says to 'Listen to me'
listen to the Lord, and by that reading His Word
that's what's so awesome about the Bible because it has everything!!!!!
I recommend reading it :)
also read the whole passage of Isaiah 55, it's pretty cool!
I plan on posting this verse in my room to keep encouraging me; I hope it encourages you too!

    There is a documentary on YouTube on obesity where they take a very slim woman and her very fat friend and the fat friend is SURE she has a slow metabolism and her slim friend can eat everything she wants and that is why she doesn't gain weight. They test ALL of their urine and fecal matter for a week in a top lab and what they find is that the obese woman actually has a HIGHER metabolism than her friend, but that the slim woman really doesn't eat near as much as the fat woman, who apparently ate at home at night where the slim woman at a lunch they had together stopped after having half of the LARGE sandwich and didn't finish the rest. The slim woman ate like that all the time.
    So, the documentary was really interesting.
    On youTube is "THE MEN WHO MADE US FAT" and that is a really good one to watch. Not the same as the first one but has LOTS of good information.
