Hi, I am writing to say thank you for believing in me. I wrote this spring asking for help in losing weight. My health was in jeopardy and I just wasn’t successful getting it better. I wanted to attend a class, but there weren’t any in Fort Myers, Florida where I live. You replied, “Start one in your church!” Sooo! I approached the pastor and, voila, started a group in March 2011. We were small and due to job changes got smaller! We did finish the first book. I lost weight and got healthier and my husband came along for the ride. He’s doing better too! Then I did the summer book at home. To date, I have lost 20lbs. Yea! But that is not the reason I am writing. For years I have been trying to do this by going to other programs and they all missed something. I needed Christian accountability. Someone who shared my faith. Who listened. Who would pray with me on the spot. Who cared. That is what First Place 4 Health does. It carries on what we are asked to do in His Word. Share one another’s burdens. I still have a long way to go, had some hospital issues, but I am doing so much better. We are planning to start again in September and I covet your prayers. I hope to make it to one of the seminars to get more ideas and interact with others who have gone through this too. Right now all I can say is God bless you and keep on keeping on. Sorry to be so gabby! I have also lost two dress sizes too. New clothes in Sept. here I come!!!!! This photo is where I started!
