In 2009, I weighed almost 235 pounds. I wore a size 18/20. My reason to lose weight were medical reasons. Diabetes ran in my father's side of my family. I had borderline high blood pressure. I prayed to God to help me lose weight. He gave me guidance, strength and direction to lose weight. He changed my way of thinking. He changed my diet completely. I am eating foods I never thought to eat. It took me a year to lose weight. I lost three pounds a month. He gave me a will power. I am a size 12. I lost almost 60 pounds.Today, four years later, I am still maintaining my weight loss. I still have will power to make the right food choices. I feel GREAT!! I have given my fat clothes to needy people. I have bought new clothes!!! That's the fun part. I feel great. I am healthy. I went to the doctor a couple of weeks ago and he ran extensive blood tests on me only to find nothing wrong. My blood pressure is normal. I do not have diabetes. I do not have high cholesterol. Everything is great!! I give God the glory! Thank you, Lord!!!
