Our Members Know Why They Belong
In the spring I started my
new beautiful transformation with a commitment to never return to the old me.
The Ft. Wayne Thin&Healthy office called me
several times, but I kept putting them off. Finally after 6 months or so of
them calling and me coming to a point in my life where I was becoming so
depressed over my weight, I decided to set up an appointment. When I walked in,
I heard the Christian music and was greeted kindly. I remember sitting down and
talking about what I liked to eat and how I exercised. I became very emotional,
expressing to her how my weight affected my life.
marital duties were no longer fun for me. I had less patience with my kids. I
hated to see myself in large clothes and for the first time I was embarrassed
to wear a bathing suit because I live in water during the summer months. That
was the last straw!
My husband supported me
all the way, even before I started to lose weight. I remember calling him from
Thin&Healthy and asking him if he would support me if I was going to start
this new way of life. His comment to me was " Laura, if you think this
will work, then I say do it." Paying for the program along with committing
to my goal within their time frame challenged me. I was so tired of being that
person I had become.
As the weeks went by I was
losing the weight and inches. I couldn't believe how easy it really was for me
but I believe it was my time and God was beside me all the way and still is. He
showed me that not only am I beautiful on the inside, but also am beautiful on
the outside. I exercise six days a week and stay on phase 3. I started with
wearing size 24-26 and now down to a size 14-16. I've lost 54.5 pounds and 98 %
inches. My body fat composition is down to 26.5%.
At times it can be hard to
stick to the plan but then I'm reminded where I started and where I'm at right
now. I love the way I feel. I have more confidence, motivation and most of all
I like myself. It's like the icing on the cake!
thankful that I met the people at Thin&Healthy and for their counseling on
how to eat healthy for the rest of my life.
