I have been overweight all my life, even as a child. I was then diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 25, borderline hypertension, and recently diagnosed with borderline high cholesterol. I have been through a weight loss journey several years ago where I had lost 104 pounds. Unfortunately, I gained almost all the weight back while causing me to have issues with self confidence, and believing that I wasn’t good or worthy enough. Ultimately, I realized that I needed to ask God to show me what I have to do to succeed in losing this weight for good. He has shown me how food can be used to help me, while also putting the right people in my path to help me succeed from JWFNS. I am very blessed and thankful for all the support from family, friends and the JWFNS team who have been there for me through this journey. I am still a work in progress and will continue to trust God to get me to the finish line.
