I firmly believe that God is extremely personal in his restoration for our lives. As we become more fully restored in Him we will become the unique individuals that He has made us to be.

Part of what God has been restoring in my life is my body. In January of 2011 I was close to 390lbs and I hated the way I felt and looked. When I walked into a room I thought that every single person was looking at me and thinking, “Look at this guy, how gross, look, he’s sweating, that’s disgusting, he can barely breathe, wow, he’s a mess.” It was at this point that the person who was discipling me told me the truth (for more on discipleship visit CORE Houston). A truth that changed my life. The truth that God loved me for ME.

Not for somebody I was trying to be. Just me. Chris Garcia. All 390lbs of sweating mess Chris Garcia. When I accepted that truth I realized that my life is precious to God and that He intends for me to have an awesome life. Part of that awesome life is restoring my physical body that I had abused for many years.

Since that point God has brought people into my life to change my lifestyle. I have changed my eating and my schedule to accommodate working out on a regular basis.

I will be posting meal ideas and different tips to show you that you can do the same thing. I am a work in progress, but I know that God is faithful and He is restoring me daily. There are stories upon stories of the people he has used to bring about this change. You will meet some of them in my blog posts. As I share these stories with you I would love to hear your stories. Stories of your restoration and your struggles. I would be lying if I said this has been easy and I know that your fights are not easy either. We can share with each other and strengthen each other by shedding light on what we do and train others to do the same.
