God Loves My Fat Body As It Is. My weight does not hurt my witness.

This girl’s wisdom is awesome.  Remember the goal of Salva Fitness and Nutrition is not to become lighter.  IT is to become LIGHT!


As a teen, I thought that being a good, effective Christian meant being thin. Fatness was associated with a lack of self-control, one of the fruits of the Spirit. So I came to view my weight as an outward sign that I must not really believe or obey. I was terrified that my witness would be hampered by the size of my thighs. Surely no one would believe in the power of the Resurrected Christ if his Spirit wasn’t strong enough to keep me from gaining weight.
