Testimonial – Crystal Schwartz

CWO,

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.

    Thank you so much for your entry on this website. I needed to hear that and especially see it…The photos speak volumes to me. I am in the same boat only worse. I have 40% Left main heart blockage and I am over weight by 70 plbs and I am diabetic and I have a hip replacement gone bad. I am just 48 and have to do something fast. My husband and I adopted three children from CPS and they need me, My Parents are elderly and they need me. I just want you to know your article has inspired me and given me hope and faith in a healther tomorrow…Thank You and May GOD Bless you. Lisa
