The first picture was taken in my first year in college, when I was 21.
I weighed between 160 and 170 pounds, wore a size 14, was timid, dealt with gallbladder problems and migraines, and wanted to please others so they would like me. I was negative and angry a lot though, so I eventually ended up not
having many who wanted me as their friend. (I gained even more weight in my college career, but threw away most of my pictures! I didn’t want to remember who I was and what I looked like back then).
Second picture in the collage is now - at 51.
By the grace of God, my life has been transformed in every way. I have stayed on course with my healthy lifestyle for about 25 years which has helped me keep my weight under 120 and I have been getting fitter and healthier with each passing year. In addition
to that, God has been renewing my mind and transforming me on the inside so that I can be more like Him every day. As I abide in Him, He continues to work and transform my life from the inside out.
