Obesity a disease?
Sunday, September 29, 2013
Before YOU READ THIS BLOG, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT I WEIGH 204 TODAY. I'm NOT JUDGING ANYONE, EXCEPT MYSELF!
Is obesity a DISEASE, OR A SIN THAT LEADS TO A DISEASE? (Sin is missing the mark, ROMANS 3:23 For all have sinned and come short of the glory of GOD.)
True, it can be compared to alcoholism, drug addiction, etc. Many call these behaviors diseases and others call them sin.
I suppose all of these are out of control symptoms of something.
Balance and discipline has lost all meaning in my personal battle with overeating; until I'm FORCED to look at my behavior because of what I see in the mirror or clothes not fitting.
Truth is all addiction needs severe LIFE CHANGES; but then so do many other diseases, don't they?
I worked for Dr. Fluharty in VA for a few years. He was an addiction-ologist and treated all out of control diseases that resulted from addictions. Overeating, Bulimia, and anorexia was among them!
(But not sugar diabetes......)
That was in the early 80's!
Disease or not, it requires severe life changes.......daily minute by minute changes! No reclassification of obesity can change that!
