I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much I have appreciated the encouragment and info in your column. I started reading CWO this summer and it has been a God sent to me. In July my daughter took a picture of me that was a huge wake up call. I got on CWO and started reading your “Live Well!” articles. While reading I was convicted of the sedentary life style I had been living. I was not excessively over weight, but was extremely unhealthy and could barely keep up with my kids. Through your encouragement I began eating healthier and walking daily. In the past my attempts at weight loss have been centered around the things of this world–appearance, ego–and though i would have some success, I would burn out shortly and go back to my old ways. I have lost 20 pounds, eight inches from my waist, and feel better then I have in years. The only thing that I have done significantly different is shifting my focus from myself to my Lord. I can now run with my kids and join my husband in his many out door hobbies. Thank you so much for being there giving encouragment at the exact time that I needed it.
