Grace and Strength Lifestyle was such an answer to prayer for me. I had been seeking a program/answer to my weight issues for about 3yrs. I knew I needed something drastic since I'd tried eating healthy, cutting down on sugar and processed foods, as well as exercising regularly but I was still going UP on the scale. I finally reached a number that I couldn't live with. This motivated me to find something drastic to totally change my life.
I had been ignoring my weight and the spiritual battle surrounding it for several years. Every year I put on more weight and would eat what I wanted all day and feel guilty every night when I went to bed, knowing it was an area of my life that I hadn't turned over to God. In all honesty I was trapped because I wanted to give God every part of my life but I always skipped over or justified the eating problems I had.
In Her Own Words - I am not the same person today that I was when I started this journey. Though I love the people, I somewhat dreaded Friday lunch with my friends because I knew we would walk somewhere to eat. I never wanted to walk too far for fear that I would struggle. I usually lagged a couple of steps behind! I was not healthy. I had been working out at the gym and had lost some weight but did not have a full plan in place to change my lifestyle.
Let me start by saying I first felt really guilty for signing up for Grace and Strength and taking the time to do this program. I felt selfish, but that's what we do as women, put ourselves on the back burner! But then my daughter pointed out that by my taking this time for me, I'm actually giving time to my kids and grandkids by getting healthy. And that is why I started this program, for my family.
Babette's Story - Have you ever prayed for something for what seems to be forever and felt that God's answer was "It is just the way you are, deal with it!". Before Grace and Strength, that is what I believed to be true. Every new diet craze that even sounded logical, I tried and failed. I was stuck. I wanted to be healthy so that I would not be a burden on my family, so that I could take care of others that needed me, and most of all to serve God to my fullest potential.
