My Personal Journey
To look at me today, from the outside, I am a happy, healthy 47 year old woman, married to a wonderful man, living in upstate New York with our three dogs.
However, what most people don’t know about me is that I spent over two decades battling a severe eating disorder, depression, and suffering from low self-esteem and a distorted body image. I have been a size 16, and I have also been a size 00. My desire to be thin consumed every area of my life. Although I claimed that God was first in my life, I had become a slave to food and the “almighty” scale. Despite my declining health and the inability to enjoy life, I was too afraid to step out in faith and make a change.
My health suffered and my body began to deteriorate. Due to early onset osteopenia, my doctor prescribed weight bearing exercise and supplements to help to regain strength and to slow bone loss. Little did I know that starting a workout program called Insanity and drinking a dense nutrition shake (Shakeology) would be the beginning of a new lifestyle that would unveil God’s purpose for my life . I remember that the first few days of the workout, I was so sore, I could barely move. But I turned it all over to Him, and let him propel me forward. My 60 day results were not just toning and strength; I finally had energy and the ability to embrace life and live again! My healing and transformation took several years, and I am excited to share that I have recovered from my food addiction and God is using me to help others and grow His kingdom!
I truly believe that God works through our circumstances to mold us into the person He created us to be. But we have to take the first step to make it happen. And I don’t believe that you are reading this now by coincidence.
If you are ready to step out in faith, and change your life for the better, I would love to take the journey with you. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and make me your free coach here.
