While I hope you enjoyed the holiday break, hopefully, you have realized that the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s celebrations are over and gone back to eating in accordance with your diet plan. If you were not on a health and fitness plan before the holidays, please do not wait to start eating healthier. Your body and family need for you to make a permanent change today, and your God commands you to eat and drink for His glory right now not tomorrow (1 Corinthians 10:31).
I know not eating holiday leftovers and permanently changing your unhealthy habits is hard. One year, my oldest son was literally in tears when he was no longer allowed to eat the food permitted during Thanksgiving dinner, but he has to learn now that although food is part of the holiday celebration, the unhealthy foods should not be eaten when the celebration ends. Unfortunately, most people do not learn this when they are young, and they use the fact that Christmas is right around the corner to continue to indulge in unhealthy foods and beverages throughout the entire holiday season. Some people do not stop until the new year begins, and even then it is really only a brief pause made as a result of a half-hearted resolution they already know they do not intend to fully commit to.
It is time to stop making Thanksgiving last until the new year begins only to resume unhealthy eating habits a week after making a New Year’s Resolution. In the Eating as an Act of Worship Ministries Health and Fitness Course, we not only teach you the biblical principles regarding the body, dieting, exercising, and maintaining a healthy body, but we also provide practical advice and a biblically based plan of action to lead you out of the Wilderness of Obesity and Eating Disorders in order to usher you into the Promised Land of Healthy and Fit for Life.
