My name is Kelli. I am a stay at home mom and I am home schooling our 17 year old daughter. I have been serious about eating healthy for 1 month now. I started food combining. Not eating proteins with carbs. Eating vegetables with almost everything! I am borderline diabetic so I am not sure about how to eat fruit. With or with out nuts. (nuts are supposed to slow the blood sugar levels) But I have heard 2 sides of this so I am still undecided there. God has been the source of my strength to continue and learn how to eat better, this is the route He has taken me so far. Eating mostly whole foods and food combining. I have lost 25 lbs so far, but that is not my focus, my focus is on learning better habits of eating and being healthy. I know I am a temple and I want to be a healthy one. I have 75 lbs to lose to be healthy, but I don't want it to stop there!! My daughter and I are doing this. She is doing it more for a diet, I can't seem to make her understand that it has to be a life style change, not a diet that you don't do anymore once you lose what you need to. I am a little more lenient on her than I am myself. Outside family thinks we are nuts so she thinks she is missing out on so much. I am constantly praying for God to direct me and for her to be more open to healthy whole foods. My husband and both daughters do not like vegetables so it is hard for all of us to be on the same page. But I am ever still hopeful that God will continue to change our hearts on this matter. It has to start with me. I want to be healthy. I have GERD, a Hyatle hernia, High Cholesterol, and I am borderline type 2 diabetic. Plus I have something going on in my intestines I have not seen a Dr. for yet. I have been praying for God to give me the strength to be determined! I have lost then gained back 60lbs and 80lbs in the past. This can not happen again! I need prayer, and if you want me to pray for you, by all means, I will!! I know how strong the flesh can be but I also know that God is greater and stronger still!! Lord Bless you! Jesus is my Lord and savior! All praise and glory and honor and power!!
