Sheila's Story - Last spring, I was broken. I was going through an unwanted position change at work causing a lot of pain and turmoil in my life. My relationships were suffering. I was angry and searching for reasons. As many people do when there is stress, pain and turmoil in one's life, I turned to food instead of turning to God. While I talked a good game and acted like I was ok with the changes in my life and that I had turned to God for guidance, I see now it was all an act.
For any of you who haven't noticed, Coach Monica has been posting some really fun weekly videos to keep you inspired and entertained as you travel along your path to a healthier lifestyle. Today Monica takes you to her backyard to eat some seriously bizarre foods that you just might end up wanting to put on your own grocery list this week. Enjoy the video and then let her know what you think... would you eat it?!?
God has used the most unlikely item (in my mind) to transform my life! FOOD!!!! God basically dropped this program in my lap and said, "Here you go; I am giving you what you need! Are you going to do your part?" God called me to make a commitment to stay faithful and He brought my husband right along next to me as my biggest encourager!
A few words from her Weight Loss and Lifestyle Coach - Monica Hemming: "I have had the pleasure of watching my sweet friend Erica transform her mind, body, and soul over this last year into the "Athlete" she has always wanted to be! Being along with Erica on this journey of Finish Lines and medals around her neck and hearing about how she loves the taste of fruit and enjoys cooking for her husband...to say that it has been an honor and a pleasure is an understatement! Praise be to God!"
I am proof that it doesn't matter how much weight you need to lose if the food and weight has come between you and God, or you and your dreams. I had reached a place in life where I was using food to soften disappointments and to comfort me. It was my solice. With no end in sight, I was gaining weight weekly. Grace and Strength felt like an accidental find in my search for a healthy solution.
