2015….The year I was introduced to Thin Within by Kelly Tull, a high school friend that circled back into my life when my best friend died during the summer. I thought she was telling me about “Sin within.”
I started Thin Within in August 2015 after accepting that I was 4″11 and going to heaven—all 230 pounds of me! Shockingly, I have no serious health issues, but struggled with weight for years not really understanding the reason. I was convinced that I really didn’t eat that much! I’m not a big snacker, but love to cook. I cook for my family of three and also for my mother, mother-in-law , and brother-in-law—all who live in my community.
My journey so far with Thin Within has resulted in some major weight release as you can see, but most of all, I crave the Word of God much more than food.
I crave the Word of God much more than food.
I realized that my portions of food were entirely too large at every meal and that eating was my comfort. Now I have turned to God for my comfort and since August I have dropped from size 20 petite to 14 petite with no diet, and little exercise. I have always been too self-conscious to do much physical activity.
I do not get on my scale very often, but I really don’t need to since it’s never been a friend of mine! I am slowly starting to get stronger and desire to exercise, but haven’t wanted it to be a New Year’s resolution.
I can’t wait to see what this transformation of my mind results in this year. I’m most excited about the relationship with God that has come from this journey, so far. It’s deeper than ever before! I’m at peace and resting in His love!
Kelly lives in Centerville Ohio with her husband, teenage daughter, and her pack of precious dogs. She and her husband have had the privilege of managing several apartment communities over the last 25 years together. If Kelly isn’t cooking for her immediate and extended family, you will find her singing, playing her flute, teaching ladies Bible studies at Fairhaven Church, or reading her Bible with her dogs snuggled close by. Kelly has survived 9 car accidents, totaled 5 cars and made the top story of the news twice. None of which were her fault. God most definitely has a plan for Kelly’s life and Thin Within is playing a significant role in this plan!
