BRIDGET REYNA--MULESHOE, TX
BEGINNING MY JOURNEY
I had been saying for months that I was going to start eating healthy and exercising because my oldest daughter is severely over weight and I needed to do something before it got out of hand. Well, needless to say I didn't do it, and a lot of time passed me by.
Well in August of this year, my daughter started having lots more medical problems and was diagnosed as pre-diabetic/insulin resistant and fatty liver. Then the very next day my husband was hospitalized with diabetes as well. His blood sugar level was at 783, which was very dangerous and at that point was when I realized I was killing my family.
It broke my heart because I'm mom...I'm supposed to ensure my family is healthy and taken care of. AndI wasn't doing my job--so at that moment I made a change from within. I prayed and asked God to show me how to do it and to give me strength to do it. So on August 7th, I made a commitment to change my unhealthy way of life!
Every story we share is about more than just losing weight--it's more about gaining confidence in Christ to make healthier choices that last a life-time!
