Celebrating an Anniversary

Here’s my sister, Tammy Todd, with the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes we put together on Friday.

The flowers are hers. She’s celebrating an anniversary.

Some of you may have noticed this picture in the One Ringing Bell sidebar or seen the post that accompanies it.

Weight Watchers featured my sister on the cover of their magazine when she lost 130 pounds and  was selected as one of six in their national “Tell My Story” contest. I had a great time accompanying her to New York for the photo shoot. 

She pushed past the naysayers—the ones who said she’d never maintain her goal, and with God’s help has kept the weight off for five years. I thought at the least, that accomplishment deserved a few flowers.

Sometimes, when we’re looking for fresh strength, it takes a drastic lifestyle change, because unhealthy choices can make us feel terrible.

Today, my sister has segued from being a lifelong educator in public schools to being an educator for Weight Watchers. She has a personal trainer, is a disciplined walker, and eats healthier than anyone I know.

If you need to make a lifestyle change, read more about my sister’s amazing journey, and find fresh strength.

I tell her story in greater detail HERE, and Weight Watchers has an amazing article and video of her HERE.

(In case you're wondering, I receive nothing from Weight Watchers for telling this story. Just so proud of my sister!)

"They tell of the power of your awesome works—and I will proclaim your great deeds" (Psalm 145:6).
