Karisse's Story - I have struggled with my weight and body image my entire life. When I was nine my favorite past times were reading and doing crafts. It was at a health check up that year when I heard my doctor tell my mom to get me into an active past-time "because I was fat". I remember shame filling me as I stood there, because I hadn't realized there wasn't anything wrong with me. Until I heard that word: Fat. I remember holding back tears as my mom grabbed my hand and we stormed out...
Throughout my childhood, I never had a weight problem. I was thin, active, and overall healthy. I ate anything I wanted and kept my "cute little figure". I remember my mom telling me that I needed to be careful, that things might not always be this way. I didn't believe her (I was a teenager--I knew everything!). Then I grew up, got married, and while pregnant with my first baby the military moved us 16 hours from my home. This was the beginning of my spiral downward.
I have watched Monica's journey unfold and as her coach, I could not be prouder. She has worked so hard and even while her husband is over in Afghanistan, she has persevered and been determined in reaching her goals. I still remember the first time I met her on group night and heard her story of how she longs to be able to ride her horse again but because of her weight, she could not at the time. Monica is not even at goal yet but has done so well, she can now ride her beautiful horse again.
My name is Thelma Hickman and I began the Grace and Strength Lifestyle in December 2011, a short time after seeing an old college friends' transformation because of G&S. She came to my surprise 40th birthday party and I was amazed at her glow. At first I did not want to jump on another diet bandwagon. I kept telling myself that just because it worked for her, didn't mean I could do it. The Lord tugged at my heart and my husband and I decided it was time to make a change.
