Yesterday, I stepped onto the scale, and I cried. It read, 179.8. “Thank you, Jesus,” I said. I knew I couldn’t have done it on my own. As of Dec. 19, 2013, I have lost 80.2 pounds.
I’d resigned myself to being heavy. I can’t express to you how much better I feel, how much happier I am with my appearance, how much more energy I have. I have changed. I’m now a person who cares about being healthy – eating well, exercising – those things are important to me now. They weren’t before.
My challenge now is one I don’t think I expected. Ten months ago, I was a habitual overeater. Since then, I’ve been on a diet. I realized yesterday that I have to learn to eat normally because I’ve never done it before. I still need your support and prayers, but I am committed to being healthy. I won’t be the guy I used to be.
