My husband has had problems with diabetes and high blood pressure all of his adult life. At one point for about a 2 year period his blood pressure was running at (I kid you not) 256/171. Yeah you read it right. And his fasting blood sugar was always over 200.

He tends to be a picky eater so we didn’t put him on this program right away. I wanted him to try the food first so I used my FREE week of food to get him used to eating 6 times per day, to see if he would eat it. He loved it so we placed an order for him.

Recently the lowest blood pressure has been 153/101 and 195 for the fasting blood sugar.

Well 8 days ago we started him on Take Shape For Life. Within 4 days his numbers hit normal ranges! On the 5th day he had to cut his blood sugar medications by 1/3. On the 6th day he had to cut the blood sugar medications out completely! Today is day 8 and his sugar is reading normal both fasting and 2 hours after a meal consistently WITH NO MEDICATION!

Although he is still on the medication for the blood pressure, it has been slowly getting in the lower range of normal and I expect that it won’t be long before he is completely off of that as well!

I can not tell you how truly grateful we are to have found Take Shape For Life. You saved my husband’s life and we are forever grateful!


Begining The Journey

After many requests to follow me on my journey toward optimal health I decided to begin this blog.

I’m not going to go into my past as it is a very depressing one. Instead I’m going to tell you of a journey that began on Feb 1 2008 after many years of depression. I was awakened by a voice telling me that I would be given a gift equal to double of that which I have suffered in my life. You see, I know what I went through better than anyone, so this promise woke me out of an oppressive and very dark sleep.

I’m not going to say things have been easy since then, but they certainly have been interesting.

I began this journey at the weight of 308 pounds. That was my record heaviest. I had pretty much given up on myself.

I’m a lady who believes in Jesus, probably more than anyone else I know. So, that day, I knew He heard my prayers. I knew He loved me and I knew I was in for some change!

Throughout 2008 I was brought through a series of events that spiritually healed me. I became a different (in a good way) person. I found my identity in Christ and was finally able to move forward with my life.
