This class has been a life changer because it transforms the way you think about staying healthy. I used to think I wanted to be healthy so I could be the best version of myself and so I could be there for my family. Those are some pretty good reasons, but there is an even better reason to live a healthy life style. Mendy helped me to reframe my thinking so that the Gospel is the foundation.
I wasn’t going to have lost that 20 pounds again only for my chin to sage more because of the yo-yo dieting I tend to stay engaged in! But, what if I don't loose it, will I be satisfied with just HIM?? I will worship and glorify HIM as I ride my bike....I will be diligent in my food choices and knowing it is ok to be aware of what I put in my body....embrace that I like to exercise and eat healthy and when others make fun of this lifestyle just know at that is Satan trying to keep me in the pit!!! I thank you for listening to his calling to put this study out there....making the recipes easy (which I am loving by the way!) Making a meal plan do able! and the lessons just the right length! I am riding my stationary bike (that my husband bought me and it sat in our bedroom for about 6 months before I rode it----and mind you I had begged for it!)....and worshipping as I ride! I have never thought of exercising as GOD honoring and thanking HIM for my body-this is slowly becoming my favorite part of my week!
I've been struggling with emotional eating and weight loss for years. I've tried every trick in the book and always feel like I don't measure up to some of my super fit friends or those bikini selfies. This class gave me a different perspective and mindset that I desperately needed. I can never thank Mendy enough for using her story and vulnerability to help me truly love the body God gave me, there is no feeling in the world quite like it.
