I’m 56 years old and have struggled with my weight since high school. My highest weight was around 220 and my current weight is 173. I’ve also struggled with diabetes and high blood pressure for over 20 years.
My turning point was on Thanksgiving 2019 when I weighed in at 180—a number that for some reason I felt was cursed and impossible to see. James 1:12 says, “God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward, they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”
I’m currently doing the 100-Day Challenge. This will be my third time doing the 21-Day Challenge and I’m in awe that Christians have not tapped into the power God has promised us.
I’ve gained self-confidence from this journey. I’ve gained a determination that I never had before to not give up and to stay on the journey no matter what distractions I have.
Last week I had a visit with my doctor. He was shocked and amazed at my results and has cut my medications by half! When he asked what I had done to lose weight, I gave him my testimony about Weight Loss, God’s Way by Cathy Morenzie. Putting me on the spot, he asked for a Scripture reference. You see, he’s a Christian. Nervously I said, “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.”
I praise God and thank Him for His excellent greatness; for inspiration from Cathy Morenzie’s heart; and for a good doctor that provides proof of what God has done in my life!
My advice to others would be to never give up; to know that God loves us and desires for them to be healthy, strong, and victorious; to leave a legacy for generations to come that food is no longer an idol, and to allow God to be their strength and give Him all the glory for their amazing results.
