On Monday, I blogged about being stuck in the 170s and I've been thinking of what to do a lot since then. Then last night, I was reading a book called Identity Theft. It's about how all these things in life steal our true identity as children of God and I realized that even though trying to be healthy is a good thing, I devote way too much of my time to worrying about trying to lose that weight. It's starting to steal my focus from more important things. So I've decided to take a step back. I will still try to make healthy choices, but I'm going to stop obsessing over that. I'm going to focus on developing a closer relationship with God. I'm going to focus on getting involved with my church. I'm going to focus on helping people. I'm going to focus on being a good friend. All of these things are so much more important in the grand scheme of things. Especially since I realized while reading that book that I am mostly trying to lose the weight because part of me is believing that if I were just skinnier then I would be able to find that special someone to share my life. That's just not true. It's not about being skinnier. It's good to be healthy; but when I'm that focused on becoming thin, it's not healthy.
