Last year I signed up to work with Denise Bryers and through her program I learned the importance of working out and eating well. I began her program weighing 315 pounds. Not only do I now workout on average of 10 times a week, I eat mainly whole foods and I have lost a little over 51 pounds.
I look forward to sharing my story and I pray that it blesses and motivates others.
In March of 2020, after our governor announced a “Stay At Home” order because of Covid-19, I signed up with a local trainer who was offering an online workout program live on Facebook. I figured I could support a small business and maybe this would help me lose the weight that I had been carrying for years.
The end result was me discovering parts of myself that I never knew existed even though they were always present. As of this moment I have lost nearly 50 lbs and I have never felt or looked better. My days are now filled with at least 1-2 workouts, healthy meals and encouraging others that if I can lose the weight, you can too.
Our life. Our health. Sufficiency. Another day. The selflessness of others. The kindness of others.
Today we pray for so many who
Are in the hospital. Are mourning the loss of loved ones. Are essential workers. Are missing the community of church and family. Are brokenhearted.
Today we know that
We should have an attitude of gratitude. That if we look back over our lives and think things over, God has always provided. If we can’t thank Him for this, we can thank Him for that. In all things give thanks.
After experiencing a weekend that was both historical and an emotional rollercoaster, I found myself needing to be more present with my family and with myself. Make sure that while you are checking in on others that you check in on yourself.
