SHE LOST 77 lbs!!!


I want to celebrate my cousin, Katheryn, for her consistent commitment and perseverance to better health this past year.  She jumpstarted her journey with the Slow-Carb Diet (details HERE) which jumpstarted her into better eating habits.  She did a beautiful job transitioning out of the 6 week program into a good eating lifestyle.  She also committed herself to exercise.  I watched her journey on Facebook, sometimes excited to go to the gym, sometimes dragging herself there, but ALWAYS approaching it with a good, positive attitude.  In 2013, she lost 77 lbs!  Katheryn says she still has 33 to go until she reaches her final goal. Great job, Katheryn… we are very proud and your story is inspiring!

2013 has been a year of change! I married my best friend, lost 77lbs, and I found my self! I was severely over weight and felt so lost on how to lose it, I would sit cry and then destructively eat more. The day I took this pic(on left) I decided then I’m done. It was the hardest thing I’ve had to do and I still have to do. Some days I would sit and cry out of complete hopelessness. My family stood by me 100% and kept telling me to push through. Cody had to deal with the most though. I know a lot of it he had no idea how to make me feel better, but he always tried to make me feel beautiful. I am very thankful for my support, with out it I don’t think I could’ve done it. I still have 33 lbs to go, but that’s nothing compared to what I have overcome! Now I look forward to going places, I can go walk with my daughter or get down and play with her, and I can be the wife my husband deserves! I will reach my goal in 2014. I will continue my journey to be healthy and fit from now on, not just the new year. I also want to help anyone who was in my position or anyone who just wants to live a healthier life! Today’s a new day, the beginning to a new book. Let’s write the story we deserve!                    Katheryn Hendrix

Happy Easter!

“Could it be any clearer?  Our old way of life was nailed to the cross with Christ, a decisive end to that sin-miserable life- no longer at sin’s every beck and call!  What we believe is this:  If we get included in Christ’s sin-conquering death, we also get included in his life-saving resurrection.  We know that when Jesus was raised from the dead it was a signal of the end as death-as-the-end.  Never again will death have the last word.  When Jesus died, he took sin down with him, but alive he brings God down to us.  From now on, think of it this way:  Sin speaks a death language that means nothing to you;  God speaks your mother tongue, and you hang on every word.  You are dead to sin and alive in God!  That’s what Jesus did.”      ROMANS 6:9 (MSG)

THIS is why I celebrate Easter.  
THIS is real health and real life!
