220lbs gone forever!
I had been overweight all my life – weighing 267 lbs at 13 years old. At 35 – I weighed in at 370 lbs. I was in a walker, on a breathing machine at night and taking 8 different medications. I was severely depressed and I knew I was going to die. I was a single mom of a then 7 year old little boy. I had drawn up a will – to give custody of him to my sister upon the even of my death. I remember the depression being so bad I couldn’t get out of bed. I was in a prison of fat and knew time was running out. I had been bulimic since 16, in treatment centers and on every diet 100 times. I had filed bankruptcy because I was eating us out of house and home with large restaurant bills and overspending on top of everything else.
When I was in so much pain and knew there was no where to go – I finally cried out to God and H e heard m y cry. He led me to the Weigh Down Workshop (www.weighdown.com) and to date I have lost 222 lbs. I went from a size 32 – to a size 6 in about 2 1/2 years through the seminars, books and inspirational CDs . I no longer take any medications. I was given the tools to wake up each morning happy to be alive and am no longer depressed. I get to be with my son and he is happy and has his mommy!! This program effected us in every aspect. Since the class, I now work full time and love my job and we are financially stable! I have a relationship with God and have peace that money can’t buy! Weigh Down has no regimented excercise program, but now with all my weight gone- walking around the block this summer – is feasible and sounds like a lot of fun! If you would have ever told me I could be done with losing weight and no longer be struggling with my weight – I would have told you – that you were crazy! But through the Weigh Down Workshop – the impossible happened. I learned to fall in love with God and fill up my heart – that was empty with a relationship with God . I learned I was giving it food when all it wanted was God! If you are sick of dieting, there is hope. If I can do it, you can find this relationship too!!!!
