Obesity is almost a swear word, it is not something you say about someone to their face. What is obesity? What is it all about other than you are fat? What does it mean for men? How serious a problem is it?
A definition of obesity is that it is “a condition characterized by the excessive accumulation and storage of fat in the body” (Merriam-Webster). It is when a person’s “weight is higher than what is considered healthy for a given height, as measured by the Body Mass Index (BMI)” (Centers For Disease Control and Prevention).
A time of self-examination and reflection based on body, mind and spirit.
Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday andLent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. It is time for a lent meditation.
The better you know yourself the more likely you are to do what matters. Study your strengths, know your weaknesses, identify your values, define your success, learn the things that excite and those that terrify you.
