Her waist was bigger and she couldn’t fit into the same size clothes that she did 20 years earlier. What bothered her most was that she was always tired and never had energy.

She said, “it’s too uncomfortable, I can’t keep doing this.” I encouraged her to continue and told her that it would get better. She “quit” three times during the next two weeks.

She said, “I’m very encouraged!” Eight months later she had gained two pounds on the scale but lost three inches in her waist – and she walked a marathon Be encouraged.
