My friend Stacy shared Grace and Strength with me. I was immediately interested and excited about this diet. I was "ready" to be healthy and lose weight. My Grace and Strength journey was fairly uneventful. I'm a rule follower so once I knew what I needed to do I just did it. There were times that were hard and that I got discouraged but my coach Bekah was very encouraging. I really looked forward to the weekly Bible studies and it was often the highlight of my week.
My exposure to Grace and Strength began this summer when I saw my coach‘s before and after weight loss photo on Facebook. I was blown away by the obvious success she had losing her weight. After inquiring and talking to her and another gal from Grace and Strength, I was really not sure this was something I would do.... What I could not figure out was WHY this program worked.
My journey with Grace and Strength Lifestyle began in Feb. In the past I had tried many other diet programs, loose weight, only to gain it all back and then some. But my problem with food was more a heart problem then a head problem. I needed to get my heart right with God so that food would no longer control my life. I needed to learn to go to God when I had problems instead of turning to food to comfort me.
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.
"A picture tells a thousand words". One glance at my before picture is enough to show anyone that I was one mighty frustrated and unhappy person. Over a period of years I had been slowly but surely gaining weight; five pounds here, two or three there, and yet I was able to look in the mirror and tell myself I didn't look all that bad.
