Looking back over the WHY that I chose when first coming on this journey, was that "all stones be unturned". When you struggle with food your whole life; you learn to hide many habits. These hidden ways become your demons, they hold you in bondage. They grow, they mold, and they become rooted. The longer they root, the hardier they become and eventually become your comfort. That's how sin is, it becomes comfortable until it's not enough.
I, like so many, have struggled with being overweight all my life. I have tried every diet plan known to mankind and failed. I would loose some weight and then loose interest. At my starting weight, I felt bad physically. I could hardly breathe, my heart raced, I tired easily and my belly was huge. It wasn't until I made a commitment to God and joined Grace and Strength, that I really got down to business.
We all have our story. What we don't realize is that so many others share "our story." We think we are all alone in our struggle to lose weight and we feel trapped in our present circumstances. I'm just like you, I have tried every diet on the market only to gain it all back!
When I began this journey with Grace and Strength my only expectation was to lose the weight and to get thin.I had seen my friend, Jonna Stout lose the weight and was keeping it off, so I had hope that it was a program that could help produce the lasting results I was looking for. I just wanted to be thin, and I wanted to feel like myself again, but it has become so much more than a diet program. It has become so much more than just a "get thin" program.
Like every success story we share, there are common threads of hope found and freedom won, but within each story there are also the individual elements that make that story all it's own. In that way, Sarah's story is uniquely beautiful because of the struggles she faced with simply making the decision to give the Grace and Strength Lifestyle a try. She tells of her inner battle with worrying that she wouldn't fit in because she didn't have "that much weight to lose."
