Hi, All! My name is Christine, and I have lost almost 60 pounds in the past year. I am almost to my goal weight, so the weight loss is starting to slow down, but I have recently added exercise to my daily routine. For anyone out there trying to lose weight, always remember that "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philipians 4:13)
When I began this journey last August, my goal was to lose 85 pounds. So far, I have lost almost 60 pounds. I would like to be at my goal weight of 160 by this November.
In August 2007, my husband and I starting taking classes called PRISM at a local church. It is a Christian weight loss program that gets to the heart of your eating issues through daily devotions and "getting real" with yourself. The other part of the program is learning how to eat the way God intended. Long story short, the foods that God created are the healthiest foods that we can eat! Not all this processed junk that man has made. Third, I have implemented an exercise program into my routine. This is much easier for me in the summer, because I am in Education and have summers off. During the school year, I work full time and attend college at night. As far as exercise goes, time is my biggest challenge 9 months of the year!
About 4 years ago, my husband had to have his leg amputated due to a rare heart condition. That is when the emotional eating began. When my dad died of cancer in February of last year, it really spiraled out of control. Last August, I decided to give it to God, and that was one of the best decisions that I have ever made!
