No matter how many times you’ve hoped for one number on the scale only to find it went the opposite way. No matter how many times you’ve started a diet. No matter how many times you’ve stopped a diet. No matter how many times you’ve sworn off diets altogether. No matter how many times you’ve told yourself you’d never go back to that way of living, only to go back to that way of living. No matter how many exercise programs you’ve stopped. No matter how many supplements you’ve tried. No matter if you binged. No matter if you’ve purged. No matter if you’ve gone days not eating or if you’ve gone days where all you’ve done is eat.
No matter if your friends called you names. No matter if your enemies called you names. No matter if your mom criticized you or your dad rejected you. No matter if your husband no longer finds you attractive and no matter if you no longer find yourself attractive.
No matter how many times you have tried and failed and tried and failed again.

“Since you were precious in My sight, You have been honored, And I have loved you.” Isaiah 43:4
“You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you.” Song of Solomon 4:7
“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39
