PREACHER: I'm here today to testify, to sanctify… to glorify and purify. Sometimes we must lose a little bit of ourselves in order to better ourselves, people. You, Sir, in the second row, have you recently lost something?

SIR: Yes. I lost my double chin.

PREACHER: He lost his double chin, people! And how Sir, did you lose something so big?

SIR: I was playing soccer with my son and it just vanished…

PREACHER: (excitedly) Into thin air? Can I get a witness!?! And you, Ma'am in the back? Have you recently lost something?

MA'AM: I lost my thunder thighs playing hide and seek with my daughter, pastor.

PREACHER: Glory be! And how 'bout you, my brother?

BROTHER: (excited) I lost my gut!

RANDOM CONGREGATION MEMBERS: My belly's been missing for three months! My buttocks are gone!

PREACHER: His buttocks are gone, people. Praise above, his buttocks are gone…

ANNCR: Small step number 54 - play with your kids. It's just one of the many small steps you can take to help you become a healthier, well, you. Get started at and take a small step to get healthy.
