Losing Weight has a Higher Purpose for this Dad
This local father feels a deep sense of spirituality about his yearlong journey to get healthy. It's paving the way to a great summer with his family.
My story begins with my journey to lose weight for health reasons – and to keep up with this wonderful journey, maintain it and make it part of my life everyday. I have lost 70 pounds in the time of one year.
It gives you a better mindset about you as a person – and it helps you grow spiritually and with God hands. I have been able to do this with grace of God. It has made me a better person in every way. I enjoy life more, and I enjoy my family and I enjoy living. It gives me a purpose in this world.
I feel like I matter and I'm somebody. Even though a lot of times I feel like I'm alone on earth.
But I trust in Him all the way and everyday of my life – even if I don't have a lot of money to do some of the things for my family and me. I still trust in Him. He is my life, salvation and the only holy one of power.
I would like someday to do more for my family – like take them out to dinner, or just do something very special for them. I love my son and wife that much.
