"She said Yes!" Yes to life! Yes to Health! and Yes to her Future!
Find your Food has been going along and touching people's lives. Inspiring people to get out of problem foods, controlling foods and processed food and get their control back! Food is BIG BUSINESS. Our food is not the food of our grandparent's generation. Today's food has all been touched and tampered with to give it longevity or to give you an experience you feel you can't live without. It's called the "Bliss Point" in food manufacturing. It's led to a national epidemic of Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes....Epidemic! People are Pre-diabeti, have Insulin Resistance and Metabolic Syndrome and it's getting worse and worse.
Some of us are not sure when it took over, when we reached the point of losing control of our weight. Some of us are very aware of when they picked food over our faith to cope with our lives. All of us have slowed DOWN, and now carry not only weight but guilt and shame. I disconnected from living, friends, and church family. The guilt and the shame and often powerlessness truly took away any Yes! In me...I did disqualify myself, hanging back my hopes and dreams. Depression did set in.
One day an offer came to link arms with my cousin and do a diet together! We both knew the carbs and sugars were our problem. We returned to a lowcarb approach...We made a commitment to each other and over the course of the next year we avoided cheating at all cost, and never let go of each other! And we did it! Lost our weight. It's been 26 months and we've not gone back.
I started "Find Your Food" and then...
God whispered to me over and over this summer and fall as I poured everything into Find Your Food..."What about the church?" What about helping the women of faith you know who are weight loss failures and trapped in food-addiction and have disqualified themselves. What about the chronic dieter who never gets anywhere? What about their health. What about the gifts and callings they've finally let go of, simply putting them aside because there is no ENERGY or CONFIDENCE to run with.
3 of God's women found me and asked for help...That led to "She said Yes!" and a door opened...
My home church has sponsored 8 women to walk out "She said Yes!" for the next 10 months. Godly women, wanting to get back their lives! So they've said, "Yes!".
Another "Yes Group" launches this afternoon, 5 women sitting around a table with coffee and a LCHF plan. Hearts beating with excitement and faith they will link arms and build a community...They too have said yes!
God nudged and nudged and nudged my heart til He created enough room in me for this vision to move in...I pray for the freedom I've found from controlling foods. I pray for their confidence to come roaring back. I pray for His purposes to Find THEM!!! all over again...
