My name is Denise Gerrich and my story is the journey of a woman who has stepped out of a very difficult life into the life of her dreams. Only 9 months ago, I weighed 330 pounds and felt like I was drowning in a world of shame and disbelief that my world could ever change. Doctors told me that my blood pressure and poor health would probably keep me from seeing my next birthday unless I made drastic changes. That is when I heard about EMwomen.
Still living in Nashville, Tennessee, I connected to the EMwomen Online Social Network where I met some amazing women that seemed to love me beyond my obesity. After a short time in the community, I purchased some of the life coaching products (The Power Pack). My excitement grew so I became a Power Circle member and soon began to learn that God still has a divine plan for my life. Within a few weeks, I realized that I needed to make some drastic changes in my life, so I decided to move to Hot Springs, AR, the home of EMwomen. I left my job, my friends, and my comfort zone and moved to what would soon become the home and beginning of a brand new "Denise".
My first week in Hot Springs, I attended the EMwomen "EMerge" conference , where I learned how to think right, eat right, cook healthier meals, walk in my fat burning zone, and make better choices that would lead to my best life. Staci Wallace, founder of EMwomen, became my personal coach and helped me "think for success". Most people think I must have worked out a lot at a gym, sweating and going to bed in pain at night. But the truth is, although I walk 5 days a week in my fat burning zone (EMzone), I have still yet to go to a gym. EMwomen is different. EMwomen works with your emotional baggage and once that is removed, the physical weight seems to fall off.
When Staci took me through the "EMbracing Change" teaching, I realized that although I had tried every diet known to man, this was different. Now, I know how to make better choices every day and I feel great knowing that if I can do this ANYONE can do it!
One of the "better choices" I learned was that if I had to eat out at a restaurant, then I needed to choose a place that would partner with my goals of losing weight by offering healthier menu items. That is when Staci Wallace, founder of EMwomen, introduced me to Chick-fil-A's Chargrilled Chicken Sandwich.
Although I've learned, through EMwomen’s EMcafe Recipes, how to cook entire meals for under 10 grams. I try to eat 85% of my meals at home, but have also learned that with Chick-fil-A, I can maintain that goal with the healthy food choices they offer. For example, if I can’t eat at home, I head to Chick-fil-A and get the Chargrilled Chicken Sandwich, which is only 3 grams of fat (260 calories) and the fruit cup, which has zero fat and only 100 calories. I top that off with a bottle of water and know that I have made a GREAT decision that empowers my success as a healthier woman who has made a monumental life change.
Of course, delicious and nutritious food starts with only the best ingredients. Every day at Chick-fil-A, they start with boneless breast meat chicken and their fruit salad is made daily. I am so thankful for Chick-fil-A because they have offered me (and you) a delicious alternative when we can't eat at home.
I thank God for EMwomen and Chick-fil-A and am truly blessed to say that after only 9 months of eating right, walking five days a week, and thinking right, I have lost over 123 pounds!
