- The Grace and Strength Lifestyle
- Success Stories
Wife and mother of two, Victoria, tried for five years to return to her ‘normal' pre-childbirth weight without any success. Even with success in the past with weight management and fitness, she just couldn't get those last 20 pounds to go away. ...but then she found the Grace & Strength Lifestyle.
What follows is her story of hope, encouragement, and victory! Thank you for sharing it with us Victoria, and we are so glad you chose us instead of the Tibetan Monks.
- I couldn't lose 20lb despite the fact that I have had previous positive experiences with dieting in the past.
- I decided to leave everything in the hands of God, since I couldn't do anything to fix my problem on my own.
- I came across the website Grace and Straight, read everything on their pages and, after some brief hesitation, decided to give their program a try.
- I tried it and it worked! Thank you God for showing me this program and thank you Monica for being my coach!!
- There is hope for you too, as God provides wisdom to us all and works through other people.
My name is Victoria. I am 36 years old. I have two kids and am happily married. After the birth of my second child, I lost much of the weight I had gained, but got stuck at 145lb and couldn't return to my normal weight of 125lb. For five years, I tried to lose the weight. Despite my positive past experiences with weight loss and knowledge of various techniques, nothing I did would work. I tried everything I could think of (besides maybe taking a trip to Tibet in order to learn Chinese slimming secrets from monks).
After five years of trying and having no luck, I lost all the hope. That was when I remembered that I have someone to turn to who is above me and all my problems, God all mighty. I am a Christian, my husband is a preacher, my kids go to a Christian School, and I go to church regularly. I believe in a living God, whose power is at work in our everyday lives. I began praying and asking Jesus for the wisdom to deal with my weight loss dilemma. God pointed me to Grace and Straight. At first I was skeptical and hesitated for some time, but I soon decided to jump on board, follow the instructions, and do what coaches were telling me to do. The program worked and I lost 20lbs fast!*
What I liked most about the program (besides, obviously, the positive results) is the fellowship it creates between likeminded individuals. The support of the other ladies and coaches, who have been in your place and truly understand your struggles, doubts, and fears, is something that is irreplaceable. They walk beside you everyday. They are only text, email, or phone call away. Yes, you have to follow the protocol if you want results, which can sometimes be challenging. But when you have someone walking alongside you and providing you with support, it becomes so much easier.
I loved that the program was that it teaches you how to eat after you have reached your weight loss goal. Again, it is step-by-step process, but the program teaches you how to incorporate exercise and nutrition into your daily life, while remaining available to you in the future. You go through the program, lose weight, learn about nutrition, and return to your life healthier, happier, and more grateful than when you started!
The weekly meetings that we attended also had a profound effect on me. They taught me that you about spiritual principles that we can experience in the physical world, and see how everything is interwoven. These principles were simple to internalize and can be applied to other messy areas of life in order to achieve success.
Thank you, Grace and Straight. And thank you, Monica, for everything!
