Change from the Inside Out

This weekend, I got to watch a bit of the TLC show “Skin Tight” .. all I can say is I am SUPER thankful that my weightloss journey was done in such a way as my body rebounded WAY better than is usually expected for someone who has lost 160 lbs as I did!! I do have some extra skin, but I can healthfully “live” with my minor issues, especially by comparison to so many others who struggle SO much.

I REALLY identify with the (difficult!) journeys and (often painful!) stories of the folks I have watched so far ..

It seems like you’re just changing one thing – your personal “Fitness.” But you don’t realize till you’re in the thick of the journey (or in my case, almost at the END of it), that it’s a path to being FIT to your WHOLE “real” self (as God MADE you to be) .. NOT just your “body.”

You HAVE to change your mind, your emotions, your commitments, your relationships, your spiritual walk, EVERYTHING. Not just what you put (or don’t put) in your mouth.

And there is a lot of “damage” that can happen to a person that LEADS them to their body being “un-fit” .. Most often, the body being “un-fit” is just a SYMPTOM of the core issues.

You MUST “change” from the INSIDE out. ❤ If you’re struggling with “un-fitness” with yourself, PRAYERFULLY consider what new “seed” you need to “sow” in your life so the ROOTS will be different, and let the “fruits” take care of themselves. 😉

Blessings ❤




About Grace2Grow

Leah holds a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy, and considers herself a forever-student at heart, especially of the Word of God. The last few years have included a 160+ lbs weightloss, and a complete re-working of her "inner man" as she has had to journey from merely what she "knew" to putting that into "ACTION" .. a transformation that so rocked her core, she believes God's calling in her life includes a sense of "urgency," as the body of Christ is fully - knowingly or unknowingly - entrenched in These Last Days, just as Jesus prophesied. She has worked in various forms of professional Customer Service for nearly 20 years, from Mortgages and Banking to Automotive Plastics, and values most the opportunity to mediate and problem-solve. Leah has served over the years in varying roles, from Women's Bible Study Leader to Choir Director to Worship Leading to teaching Sunday School to working faithfully in the Nursery. She loves being a Wife and Aunt and Sister and Daughter and Friend, and loves to read just about anything she can put her hands on. She is always re-learning putting feet and muscle to these things, but she has learned there is incalculable value in "working the plan," and "being faithful with LITTLE so as to be entrusted with MUCH." And she is trusting her beloved God and Savior for the "much" yet to come. You can find more of her musings on her blogs at and, or follow her on Twitter at
