My Name is Kristy McCammon
Faith Based Weight-Loss Coaching
Most of my life has been spent being overweight and food obsessed. Unfortunately, food became my friend and comfort at a very young age. This set up a lifetime of dependence on food for every emotion; sadness, joy, fear, excitement, happiness, anger, boredom, chaos – you name the emotion and food was the answer. I was in a battle with food daily. I was either white knuckling my way to stay out of the food or I was overeating and bingeing – there was no in between. No matter what I tried, I simply could not let go of sugar and flour laden junk food. It had truly become a stronghold in my life that kept me enslaved to food. The idea of moderation always sounded ideal – just one piece, just one bowl, just one slice, just one….. that never worked for me. Once I had JUST ONE, my brain was actively demanding more. I was in a place of desperation and my weight was the highest it had ever been.
I had an amazing husband of 25 years who loved me unconditionally, 5 amazing children, plenty of wonderful friends and family, and a loving relationship with God – truly a life that I loved, yet I could not get my relationship with food in control. I often prayed for God to deliver me from my food addiction and take away all cravings for unhealthy food. I had tried every diet and plan available. In past weight loss attempts, there was usually short term success, but eventually I was right back to obsessing over food and bingeing on sugar and flour filled foods. I began praying for a permanent solution out of this food obsession. I was ready to fully surrender! After one such prayer, I came across the idea of food boundaries. This is simply the idea of following boundaries in regards to food; no sugar, no flour, 3 meals a day, and measured portions. I DID have to eat food to survive, but I DID NOT have to eat sugar and flour. I knew in that moment that my rescue boat had arrived and I just had to jump in and paddle! I began eating amazing, delicious, and abundant amounts of food. A lifestyle change, rather than a diet, was exactly what I needed!
Since then, I have released 100 pounds and maintained that loss for 4 years now. I have gone from a size 28 down to a 14! My head is clear and all mental food chatter is gone! I can confidently say that I have found food freedom and I am FINALLY free from this burden of food addiction. Sometimes, living sugar and flour free is hard, but being obese and food obsessed was much harder! Now I can FULLY ENJOY the life that I have ALWAYS LOVED.
My mission is to help those who are stuck in the vicious food addiction cycle to gain the freedom they need to fully live out God’s plan for their life.
“For you have been called to live in freedom.”
