    I agree with you.

    I know its trite but I think daily LIFE IS A GIFT THAT IS WHY IT’S CALLED THE PRESENT.

    Beautiful statement! I’ve made the same comments on my own blog in this post ( http://defeatingmyweight.blogspot.com/2010/01/how-can-we-all-live-cleaner-life.html ) and other posts as well. Life is about living our lives the way God intended us to – healthy and happy!

    I’m with ya. I’ve mistreated my body for years which led to high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and diabetes. Ughh!

    Amen Tyler. There is no replacement for the body once it’s gone. I try to remind myself of that every day.

  5. Kyle says:

    I second that “Amen”.

    Grandmothers bear hearing. Bodies are “mobile homes”. Now, if only we could submit to the truth, eh?
    Excellent focus Tyler!

    Thank you for this post! I was making great strides towards losing weight last year, but as a grad student, got side-tracked towards the end of the spring semester…which led into summer…which led into football season…which led to all the holidays goodies. I’ve been trying to find a way to get motivated again, and have been using this verse in the process. I’ve been subscribing to your blog for about a year, and now I feel this verse is as a way of God coming full-circle in my life to restore my healthy eating and regular exercising habits. Thank you and thank God!

    (For any other Christians out there trying to lose weight, I just finished reading a book called “Made to Crave” about replacing your cravings for food with cravings for God–it’s not perfect in fixing all your bad habits, but I think it definitely gives you some things to think about, and it’s an easy read.)

    I sometimes wish I hadn’t waited so long to get healthy.
