Where to start and what to include or not include, there is so much. When I started this program it was to lose weight. I was introduced to Grace and Strength through a friend who was on the program. She had actually been on for quite some time before finally, through much prayer and deliberation; I gave in to her prompting to give it a try. I figured I could at least do it for a few months and see what happens, after all it is bible based and I did need to lose some weight.
Improving Your Self Image and Why You Might Want To Avoid Women's Magazines. Two recent studies by the University of Massachusetts and Stanford University found that 70% of college women say they feel worse about their own looks after reading women's magazines. 70% Feel Worse. Let that sink in for a moment, because that means that nearly every one of those women walked away from that magazine feeling like they weren't good enough.
Why Monday Is So Important In Your Health Journey. Monday is such a significant day for setting the tone of our entire week. Even though there is nothing inherently special about that one day of the week versus any other day of the week, it still holds an intrinsic power to set the tone for our entire week. Every choice that we make, and unfortunately every choice that we break sets our lives on a course for the remainder of the week.

My doctor told me it was a math problem; calories in/calories out…and as an accountant that made sense to my brain. However I didn't know how to fix it. I had tried many things in my life but had always regained the weight ...
In 2014, I was a very broken woman, wandering, lost in a spiritual desert. I obsessed about my weight. I focused on this rather that the real issues disturbing me. As with other woman in the Grace and Strength community I tried multiple diets, fasts, even gastric bypass surgery. I would lose, then regain as is the pattern. The question to myself was why do I keep doing the same thing? I had been in Weight Watchers for about a year and just was not getting anywhere. I found Grace and Strength.
