God had let me know that I needed to listen to him. I tell everybody it has taken me 30 times to quit smoking and 30 times to lose weight. God has led me each step of the way. By being closer to him and having more patience with myself when the day is not good, I know I will succeed.
I came back to the new well in November 2011. This is the only program that had worked for me. The new well staff never makes me feel like a failure. They encourage me and are very helpful and so caring.
Now I have more confidence. I can make better decisions about my health, and I speak out more about my feelings. I question my doctors about my family’s medical needs. I love trying on new cloths and knowing how much fun it can be for me. I’m now more pro-active with my family, I drink less soda and more water, and I get more exercise with my kids and grandkids.
I’m so blessed by my husband of 34 years. He never picked on me for being overweight. Now I’ve gotten him to eat for fruit. Even my dog is healthier from his daily walks!
This journey is life-long for me. It’s not always easy, but God put me here on earth for a reason, and I am blessed by so many people who encouraged me and care about me.
I am taking small, baby steps to weight loss so it will be gone for good.
Walk with me! It’s so amazing how you will feel each day!
