F.I.T. Faith Inspired Transformation by Kim Dolan Leto

Achieve health the right way from the inside out! Many diet and fitness books claim that losing ten pounds in ten days will bring the health and happiness we are looking for. But the truth is that health and happiness requires more than a few weeks of intense dietary restriction or physical exertion. The journey to health isn't a sprint. It's a marathon. We succeed by combining our faith with our fitness and doing real life with God. Only in Him do we find the strength to make health a lifestyle. Everything else is just a temporary fix with an unending cycle of deprivation, overconsumption, and exhaustion. F.I.T. is different than any other diet or training plan. It calls women who are struggling with their health and fitness to a Faith Inspired Transformation shifting their focus from what the world says to what the Word of God says. With each of the ten steps, renowned fitness expert, model, and writer Kim Dolan Leto provides the inspiration and practical tools necessary to live a healthy life that honors God and brings the lasting results we all crave.

Two words to describe this book. Life changer. At 32 years old I have been a binge eater for as long as I can remember. Someone say something mean to me? I'd eat a liter of ice cream. Disappoint my parents? Eat a family size bag of chips. Bored? Drink a 2 liter of Pepsi. These bad habits just escalated until I was 325lbs. On my sons 1st birthday I vowed to be around for him for a long, long time so I decided to change. That was Oct 2011. By August 2012 I had lost 105lb. I got married, I was happy. But you know what happened? I got content. I rarely read my Bible, I didn't watch what I ate and now I'm back to 270lbs and climbing. Since reading this book I have decided I have one life to live and I must live it wholly and take advantage of every opportunity. I vow to begin today (yes, right before Christmas) making better choices spiritually, mentally and physically. With God's help I know I can be stronger, fitter, happier. I believe we need to change our minds and our hearts before we can change our physical bodies. I never was one for dieting fads or gimmicks, shakes or pills. It just takes the right frame of mind, dedication, discipline and a whole lot of faith! Definitely recommend!
