In 2008 Tri Delta launched an initiative called “Fat Talk Free Week” in order to bring awareness of body image issues and how negative talk about the body can have a damaging impact on us all. Before you say that you do not engage in ‘fat talk’ or “What’s the big deal?”, take a few minutes to check out their site Body Image 3D for more information BodyImage3D – October – Healthy Body. It has some great info, videos, and ideas for how to avoid using ‘fat talk’.

If you are still questioning what your words might have to do with how you feel about yourself, your body, and your Creator, try to think about this through the lens of God’s Word:
But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person. Matthew 15:18
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4:29
Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body. Proverbs 16:24
And the tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness. The tongue is set among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the entire course of life, and set on fire by hell. James 3:6
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14
