We aren’t skinny, but we are getting healthier…

Ecclesiastes 4:9, KJV– Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

This past summer my mom kept having serious heart problems. We knew we needed to lose the weight, but it was just not happening. Then her heart just pretty much started giving out on her. 

We basically thought she would die. 

So we joined a gym. 

A gym membership just wasn’t going to cut it unless we put it to use. (#TempleFitTip: Faith won’t work unless you work >>> Hebrews 11:6, Mark 11:22-24, Jame 2:24,26). 

 I decided that I had to be the example that I wanted to see in her. I decided to take my health seriously. I was working out and eating better because I wanted that for my mother. I lost 28 lbs.

One random day she decided to join me while working out. She came again, and again. Then I hit a stumbling block and became extremely discouraged.

One day during my discouraging moment I found a guy on Facebook. I saw that he was training some people that I knew and gave it a shot. That first session I died. He explained to me how I was supposed to eat. I kept going back. I started loosing inches. The pounds were dropping here and there, but I wasn’t to worried about that. My mom started working out with us and eating healthy as well. (#TempleFitTip: Everyone needs a cheering section >>> Proverbs 27:17, Philippians 2:2-4, Psalm 133Ecclesiastes 4:9, KJV). 

Guess what!? Her heart problems disappeared!

Can you believe it, the issue that we were stressed and worried over isn’t even an issue anymore!? We aren’t skinny, but we are getting healthier and that’s what matters most!

Brittney and Cristal continue to work together and encourage one another to keep their temples fit for God’s service.  Their story is a testimony to others that health is more than how you look, it’s how you live.  Not only are they looking great, but they are feeling healthy too.   Keep it up Gastons! 

Watch the Gastons get their temples fit for God’s service.
