I've just been sitting here at work listening to your converstion with Julie (for the second time - I also heard it in my car this morning).  I just thought I would chime in with my story because I came to the same realization that Julie did - the only way I could do it was to rely completely and totally on my God.  I was 240 pounds at 5'1" and I had tried over and over again so many times to lose the weight.  I was the typical yo-yo.  Off again on again.  I was a size 12 when I graduated high school in 1974 and a 14 when I got married in 1977.  Since then I have been through a very messy divorce, the death of both my parents and the man I loved with all my heart, and the raising of an Oppositional Defiant Teenager.  But, with God's help I made it through all of that, and in spite of it all went back to school and graduated summa cum laude with both my Bachelor's Degree in 1994 and my Masters in 2007.  But even with my successes, I still carried all that weight.  Last March I had reached the point that I had arthritis so bad in my knees that at only age 54 they were talking replacement surgery, because I could barely walk.  That was my ah-ha moment when I realized I had to give it to God.  13 months later, I now weigh in at 150, wearing a size 8, and I'm not done yet.  And not only can I walk, but I have a membership at the gym.  And like Julie, I believe that God wants me to pay it forward,  I have started a support group for weight loss at my church.  We don't have very many regular attendees yet, but we're only just getting started.  Please pray that we can touch the lives of others in need of help.

Is there a way to listen to this interview again online?  I was so touched by just the snippet I heard while driving in my car yesterday!
