My Grace and Strength story had a very unusual beginning. In August of 2015, I got engaged, and he gave me this program as an engagement gift. For any other woman, this may have been taken very offensively, but at that time, I was terribly depressed, overweight and had a very unhealthy view of my body. I knew the woman I wanted to be. I wanted to be a Godly woman, a super wife and confident, but I was failing miserably at accomplishing the seemingly impossible dream.
Grace and Strength Lifestyle was such an answer to prayer for me. I had been seeking a program/answer to my weight issues for about 3yrs. I knew I needed something drastic since I'd tried eating healthy, cutting down on sugar and processed foods, as well as exercising regularly but I was still going UP on the scale. I finally reached a number that I couldn't live with. This motivated me to find something drastic to totally change my life.
I had been ignoring my weight and the spiritual battle surrounding it for several years. Every year I put on more weight and would eat what I wanted all day and feel guilty every night when I went to bed, knowing it was an area of my life that I hadn't turned over to God. In all honesty I was trapped because I wanted to give God every part of my life but I always skipped over or justified the eating problems I had.
In Her Own Words - I am not the same person today that I was when I started this journey. Though I love the people, I somewhat dreaded Friday lunch with my friends because I knew we would walk somewhere to eat. I never wanted to walk too far for fear that I would struggle. I usually lagged a couple of steps behind! I was not healthy. I had been working out at the gym and had lost some weight but did not have a full plan in place to change my lifestyle.
