This edition of Eating Crow doesn’t include a recipe, rather it focuses on the purpose of this column. As we are a little over a week away from Christmas, it is my hope that my column makes an impact on the lives of people struggling to lose weight. At church, we have been focusing on how to be Christmas to others, not just during Christmas but year-round. Through my weight loss journey, I have opened my heart to other people who are struggling the way I did for so long.
Obesity is something that affects not only the person dealing with it but those around him or her, especially immediate family. I experienced this when my girls were younger. Because of my obesity, I had a hard time getting down in the floor with them or playing with them outside. Christmas time wasn’t easy. My health had a negative affect on our finances which made Christmas hard for several years. This year has been much easier for us and I believe that can be attributed to my health being restored.
So as we exit 2018 and prepare to enter 2019, Eating Crow will focus not only on the healthy recipes but also ways to encourage you. Weight loss starts with feeling good about yourself first and building a sense of confidence and knowing that you can achieve the goals you set out to achieve.
The foundation of what I do is in honoring God through family and friends. What better way to do that than using this tool to make a difference and add value to your life.
May you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you next year!
