Addiction is addiction .... claim your victory through Jesus Christ!!! He has given me the power to kick my addiction to food !! Praise God! I do not feel the need to overindulge EVERYDAY. Gluttony is a sin. A sin I was convicted of. Proud to say I'm down over 60 + pounds! My Dad always said you could do whatever you put your mind to. I know he would be proud of me Shibboleth was the tool God provided for me to take control of my life. I no longer have foot pain, no longer feel irregular heart rhythms, and no longer take prescription medication for acid reflux!

I share a lot because I get really excited 😆 and I feel led to put this out there today. For anyone just starting out or midstream and struggling; I have been there! I WAS THERE for 7 months because I was not ready for maintenance. I wasn’t strong enough. But Listen- you got this! You are here for such a time as this. This program is a God thing!!! -Renew your mind. -Remember your why. -If it’s not motivating enough, self-examine yourself and change it. You started this Weight Loss Ministry for a reason. -BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND KNOW YOU ARE WORTH IT!!! It’s not always easy but it’s always doable if you can push through and resist the DIET DEVIL & FOMO! Look at it as •Resistance Training• which is painful at the time but making you stronger 💪!!! The more you’re on plan, the more you want …

I never thought I'd share these publicly, but here we are. There may be someone out there who needs to read and see this.💜When I look at these "before" and "in progress" photos, I'm reminded that I chose my health 6 months ago and gave myself the best gift.🎁 I was never one to get down on myself because of my weight (because I love to eat!), but I always knew it wasn't healthy and I was often so uncomfortable in my body. I'm down 40 lbs and 23.25 inches total!😮 I'm amazed at how my body has transformed physically, how I can move and not be in pain, and how I've stopped fidgeting with my clothing all day. THIS is success to me. I'm down from size 16/18 (sometimes 20), 2X tops and wide width shoes to size 14s, large tops and narrower shoes. Sizes are weird though, so …

I signed up for Shibboleth on Feb 28 2019. I did the Cliff note version of picking recipes and going through the motions of following parts of the program. I didn't "have time" to watch all those videos and really learn the program. I lost a few pounds along the way but would soon put it back on. What I found to be consistent were all the folks who were committed to the plan posting their impressive weight loss. Finally, early in 2021, I made a promise to myself to watch Fast Track and take the tests and learn as much as my head could hold. I didn't make a lot of "noise" about my commitment to eat healthily and lose weight because I have spent most of my life "dieting", losing and gaining the same weight. I felt that the world looked at me and thought "here she goes …

What a difference a year makes! Last Easter, both Kim and I were overweight and unhealthy. We are so thankful that we learned about and have effectively used the Shibboleth lifestyle! It’s amazing that combined together, Kim and I have lost over 125 pounds. We both feel so much better. I reached my goal back in September after losing 50 pounds (13 pounds from January 2021-June 2021 / 37 pounds with Shibboleth from June 2021-September 2021) and have maintained that weight for seven months now. Pictures - the first is from Easter 2021 and the second is from Easter 2022. The third picture is from Easter 2020 and the fourth picture is from Easter weekend 2022.
