Over at Kelly's Korner Blog, today is about showing your ministry. I think losing weight and offering hope to others who are in the process is my ministry.
I have been overweight since the third grade. In middle school I was already well into the two hundred pound range. By my junior year of high school, I tipped the scales at 317 pounds. By the time I was twenty seven, I hit my all time high weight of 393.6 pounds. To say that I was at an emotional low when I reached this weight was an understatement. I prayed about it, and decided the best option for me was to have weight loss surgery.
I started this blog as a way to process my feelings as I lost the weight. There is no easy fix to losing weight, and the emotional battle is still the hardest battle that one has to endure in this whole process. I know the ridicule and humiliation that people have been through in this area of their life, and just how bad it feels to be kicked when you are already down.
Ask me questions, I'm pretty much an open book on this subject. You won't find judgement here, just love, and a person who is willing to shed some tears with you.
