If you're not going to get in shape for yourself, your kids, family or friends, then at least do it for God!
After losing over 100 pounds himself, Pastor Steve Reynolds has created a weight loss system based around the bible. Bod4God inspires congregations to shed the pounds in the name of the holy spirit by using bible verses as motivation and the Lord as their personal trainer.
It might sound a little crazy, but it works! Just ONE church Reynolds has been working with has lost a combined 13,000 pounds through the program because they believe God wants us to take care of the body he gave us.
Obvi, this isn't for everyone, but neither is Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, or vegetarianism. Everyone needs their own kick in the butt to lose weight and if believing God is on their side helps the Bod4God participants reach their goals, we think it's an awesome idea!
Check the Nightline report (above) on the Pastor Reynolds' program for yourself to learn more about it!
