After struggling with my weight for as long as I can remember, I am so thankful for the opportunity I have now. I considered RBL last year, but considered too long. This year, as soon as I thought of it, I applied before I could change my mind! One problem for me has been that I don’t know enough about how to be successful. I am so excited for what I can learn on this journey! The exciting thing for me is that my husband is doing this with me. It has been so encouraging being able to learn with him and see small victories together. I know that as we move forward we are setting a better example for our daughters. In addition to being parents, I am a teacher, he is a minister. I know that God desires and deserves more from us than we have been physically able to give. I am ready to be all God wants me to be. I have been so thankful for the support and encouragement we have received from our family and friends! It has only been a few days, but have both worked out consistently and eaten in a whole new, healthy way! To sum it all up, I am Thankful!
