Hi! I’m a female in my early 30’s, healthy, yet very overweight. I’m in RCIA and have come to the realization that being overweight is a sin because I’m not taking proper care of my body, which the Bible says is a temple of the Holy Spirit. So, a few weeks ago, I started changing my diet, and I’ve already lost a few pounds. I also started going for walks.
I’m not able to go to confession yet, because I just started RCIA, but I have asked for forgiveness for letting myself get so overweight. I am taking action now to reverse that.
My fear is that if I were to somehow die before reaching my ideal weight, would I go to Hell, since gluttony is a sin?
