Holly – Holly’s Story - "I began my journey October 2010. My starting weight was 239! I was OBESE! I was also lonely, unhappy and unhealthy. Food had become my lover. God was trying to get my attention as well. Instead of running to Him with my hurts, I was running to food. I was living to eat VS eating to live. This program has helped me SO MUCH!! I have successfully shed 74 lbs (current weight=165). I remember my oldest daughter telling me I would not be able to stick to this plan (because I had tried many plans before in the past and always returned to unhealthy eating habits after). She did not realize that she was "fueling my fire" after speaking those words. It was time for me to prove to myself that I could do this. I was already considering gastric bypass, so what could it hurt to try this first, right?! It was time for me to face my reality! I was 39 when I began my journey. It was VERY important to me to gain control over my health before my 40th birthday. You see...Diabetes runs in my family and caused a few loved ones to pass away before their time. I finally got a REVELATION that "if I do not change my habits now; I will end up just like them". These things became my "why" & my "want to”. I am grateful to say that my health has improved tremendously and I am a much happier person because of this program! I am grateful for my Health Coach also, who assisted in helping me keep my focus
