Don’t Just Diet Naked!

I came across a blog called The Amazing Shrinking Mom today. Recently the mom there has decided to go on a diet, but be really transparent about it, for added accountability. I guess there was this challenge once where these people had to lose weight, or have their pictures taken wearing bikinis and put on television for all to see their failure. What motivation to get the job done!
Luke has an interview with a church in two weeks. I want to look my best so that I can make Luke look good (not that he needs a whole lot of help :), and that gets me thinking about this Dieting Naked thing. When you have something right around the corner you want to look good for, you are more likely to do the things leading up to it that will get you looking good. You better bet I’ll be running every day and eating only the essentials these next two weeks!
That is how it should be in our spiritual lives as well. Jesus is coming back SOON, and we only have so much time to get our acts together. Besides, just focusing on our outward appearances or activities and letting our hearts go to seed is like the people in Jesus’ day that He called “whitewashed sepluchres”.
So, as I prepare for that weekend, I want to be as transparent in my spiritual journey as well as my dieting. No, I am not perfect, but am working towards that goal. I don’t want to be standing before the Lord, spiritually speaking, fat and wearing a bikini.

  1. Hi V! Yikes, I have been tempted to join the diet naked club, but I’m not ready to put my weight on the internet. Maybe I’ll post pictures instead. You’re inspiring, taking care of yourself before big problems arise-both spiritually and physically! 🙂 Our prep week is going somewhat well, weaning off sodas and getting all our new menus planned. 🙂 This weekend, we will officially be eating healhty again.
    Guess who? 🙂

  2. P.S. I just laughed at how funny that is–to be afraid to post my weight but not actual pictures!!!
