"When and if you get a priesthood blessing to be free from excess fat and its potential ill effects - listen and feel for the promptings that will come from Heavenly Father as a result. They will be inspired promptings - not promptings to follow the incorrect precepts of man."
After suffering from arthritis, shortness of breath and having to walk with a cane, My dad in his fifties decided to get healthy. He exercised, changed his diet and lost a lot of weight. He looked like a changed man. He no longer needed a cane, he could ride a bike, walk, hike and had so much more energy. The impact on his friends and patients was huge. Each asked him how he did it, and wanted him to write a book. My mothers house if full of notebooks containing his ideas he was going to compile and turn into a book after retirement. Unfortunately he died 2 weeks after he retired from dentistry.
I am publishing a bit of his wisdom on this blog. I had no idea he shared my idea of getting a priesthood blessing for help with losing weight. My husband said "you are so much like your dad!"
Thanks Mel that is a great compliment.
