Proverbs 23:1,2 - When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee: And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.
Is not our weight problem often the result of being given to appetite. We should be given to Christ. If we were walking in the Spirit and our lives were characterized by temperance we would not have a weight problem.
Help me O, Lord to crucify the flesh with the affections and lusts thereof.
