One night while sitting in my favorite chair and trying to pick out the topic of the day for my church meeting, I had a very humorous experience. I had my scriptures on my lap when I started thinking about all the skinny, pretty girls in my group and I started complaining. I had just spent 35 days on a low fat diet, only once going up to a whopping 16 grams of fat for one day. Guess what? I had gained 3.5 lbs. I was so frustrated, and so I started whining . Why can’t I lose weight, I try so hard… I am a good girl… I was pulling out every whine I could think of. I finally gave up whining, martyrdom was setting in. It’s o.k. I can be the fat one. I don’t need to be the pretty girl or the skinny one. I suppose when you gave out all the good blessings I was daydreaming or in the bathroom and it was o.k., I’ll stay fat, all the pretty girls can be princesses, it’s ok, yada yada yada…..whine whine whine, I was on a pity party. I’ll never lose weight! I’ll never be thin!!! Blah blah blah… I then let my scriptures fall open and thought I would just pick whatever came up for my topic of the day. The very first thing I saw was “Wo be unto my fat ones for they shall be made lean.” I laughed so hard. I couldn’t believe how the Lord was really listening to this whine session. This was His way of comforting me and letting me know He cared and that I could become leaner. I looked at what a great promise He gave me, as well as a great laugh.
