Youth Faith Based Weight Loss Program

Many of you know I have lost 120 lbs over the last 18 months. I’ve been very involved with the First Place 4 Health program. I’m currently developing a program for teenagers and college students. One of the aspects of this group will be teaching about proper nutrition and healthy choice alternatives. We will reinvent some our most favorite snacks during our time together. We all love snacks and learning how to make good choices is key to a healthy lifestyle. I’m going to spend the next few weeks immersing myself in the teen diet resources available from Amazon. I’ve ordered a lot of books and I plan to step away from the computer and absorb all I can about teen nutrition. My hope is to create a small group of dedicated students that will explore how God can radically change our lives. I have to say it does take work, but I know It will be fun. If you are between the ages of 14-25 in Freeport, IL and are interested in hanging out with us as we start this journey, please send me an email. This group will be starting at Prince of Peace in the next few weeks. 

Do you have any ideas or suggestions for my new group? Let me know what they are. I'd love to chat with you about this exciting new youth program. Also keep this in your prayers. I’m really stoked about it.

Here is a list of the resources I will be reading in the next few weeks.
