Jess Colton, the hero of Flawless
Everyone has a physical and/or character trait we’d like to change about ourselves. What is it that most displeases you about you?
This is a bit embarrassing, but if my story can help anyone else, I’ll take the risk of telling you. I grew up with a doting mother and a strict father whom I could never please. He’s a successful lawyer in Woodlyn, Washington, and demands the same from me. I even got an advanced degree in my field. I’m a systems analysist, making six figures a year, and he’s still not impressed. So, all that to say, I was addicted to alcohol to cover the pain of never pleasing him. Then the Lord came into my life, and I soon found getting drunk every night didn’t please Him, so I gave it up. Unfortunately I merely traded addictions. Now I weigh in at three hundred pounds and have no control over my eating. But read my story. You may be encouraged.
A lot of people struggle with food addiction. How have you most changed since you grew up?
Now I overeat daily. I have diabetes, and the doctor has warned I may be endangering my life unless I lose weight. But here’s the crazy part. A beautiful woman I met when the elevator in our apartment house got stuck now claims she’s fallen for me. All three hundred pounds of me. But what kind of future would I have with her? She doesn’t want an obese husband.
Diabetes is definitely not a disease to take lightly. What pleases you the most about yourself?
I’m so grateful God is a gracious God and still loves me for who I am inside. A born-again Christian. I thank him for allowing me to finish my university training and now work for a great corporation.
God is definitely gracious and loving, even when we don’t deserve it. Do you have a personal relationship with the Lord?
Most definitely. I’d be a hopeless food addict or even dead if it weren’t for Him.
