What Is Your Struggle?

Obviously food and body image has been a life long struggle for me!  I started this blog with my cousin (who had a similar struggle) because for the first time in my life I felt FREE and I want everyone to have the same victory!!!

Six years ago God woke me up to who He is, why I’m here, and He has taught me to trust Him with every aspect of life.  I never realized what a problem my relationship with food was until God showed me.  I love food and eating, but it can ruin me.  Eat healthy for a day, binge the next,  start Monday, maybe next week all while I’d beat myself up every time I’d get dressed and the cycle went on since I was at least 13.  I’ve said before I’ve tried every diet only to gain the weight back!

So what changed?  It started with my boo tcamp , I invited friends to workout together and it got huge (it was so God’s doing).  At the time I  was still over weight and insecure with myself.  Then God gave me an idea to do a bible study with my boot campers and we did Made To Crave by Lysa TerKeurst here is a great interview with her and what it’s all about!

CBN TV – Lysa TerKeurst: Made to Crave.

made to crave

That bible study gave me a whole new perspective and really opened my eyes to how Satan uses food as the number one drug to destroy God’s people.

(The problem is bigger then drugs and sex combined)

With God I was able to not get skinny but get in the best shape of my life, both mentally and physically.  Now he has put me in the position to help others with the same battle and no words can say how amazing that it!!!

Step 1 – get with God!!!

Step 2 – I can give you the tools and knowledge, just reach out to me at shannonclelli@gmail.com

Step 3 – be encouraged,  find a friend or friends to go through this journey with you and if you want me to help you I will be your greatest cheerleader 🙂

The holiday’s are coming, arm yourself with the tools to not allow food to control or destroy you but fuel you in to who God designed you to be!

My mom shared this with me and I know it’s true

old proverb

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Romans 15:13
