My Weight Loss Journey So Far
13 For I can do everything through Christ,[a] who gives me strength.
About six months ago I weighed 261 pounds. I have type two diabetes, and my doctor wanted to put me on insulin. Shocked and scared, that news became my wake up call. I asked my doctor for one more cycle to improve. If I showed no improvement, I would go on the insulin. Reluctantly she agreed.
I joined a place called: “The Gym” in Del Rio Texas where I live. My wife joined also for support, and to lose weight. I would like to give all glory to God for the transformation I am going through.
In those seven months through the grace of God I have gone from a 44 inch waist to a 38 inch waist. I no longer wear XXL shirts. I now fit into an xl. I am stronger and can run 3 miles without any problems. My weight has gone from 261 lbs to 233 lbs. It is my goal to lose 23 more pounds.
I will not lie to you it has not been easy. I have had to change my diet, and focus more on a healthy lifestyle. The rewards have been worth it. God is so good.
