Hi, My name is Barb and I will turn 65 in July. The pounds have slowly added up over the years and I want to celebrate turning 65 by being in the best shape I can be. I think about losing weight all the time but don’t stick with any plan consistently and I’m tired of it. I am a people person but my weight embarrasses me and I have become more withdrawn. I want to glorify God and use the gifts He gave me to advance His Kingdom, so being withdrawn and lacking confidence is not an option!  I have been trying to do it on my own and realize I need to surrender to Him. I pray I have a humble and teachable heart. I am a “fly by the seat of my pants” kind of person so forming a plan and being consistent will be my challenges. I am eager to partner with God to see how He will surpass my expectations. He always does!
