How to Lose Weight Without Overdoing It

Who among us is not interested in shedding a few pounds now and then? I certainly am. Of course, there are many plans out there but if you need some humor to get started, take a few tips from my friend Walt Wiley. Let me know if these suggestions work!
  • When you get out of bed, climb over the headboard.
  • Keep a scale in the bathroom; every morning step over it.
  • Try opening any cellophane bag.
  • Stretching is important. Reach for the ringing phone without taking your feet off the desk.
  • Shop at stores that do not have automatic opening doors.
  • Try opening bottles with childproof caps.
  • Throw a Frisbee. The next day go look for it.
  • Get off the elevator two or three floors before your stop and walk over to the other elevator.
You may be asking yourself, “What’s so spiritual about this?” Here are a couple of verses that may be taken out of context but will give you a fun perspective.
“Wherefore, seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.” Hebrews 12:1 (KJV)
“And they shall eat bread by weight, and with care.” Ezekiel 4:16b (KJV)
“A false balance is abomination to the Lord; but a just weight is his delight.” Proverbs 11:1 (KJV)
May your weight loss be plentiful!
