CJane Hits 120 lbs Gone and Goal with a Raw Food Diet
Wow, I don’t know that there is much more to be said about what CJane has accomplished. We are all in awe of her beauty, of her focus, determination, and all that she gives back to everyone at RFBC. If ever there was a poster child for what we stand for and who we are, it is CJane with her wonderful smile and positive attitude.
CJane spoke at a conference last week with 5000 guests. This is the dress she wore. She calls it her Barbie dress. She sent me photos of her and her husband on a 30 ft TV screen. What a power couple. Would you look at her and think, wow, eight months ago she was obese? Or would you think. Man, some women are just born beautiful!
Cjane has accomplished something very rare, she has not broken her program once in her 8 month journey with us. There have been some tough times, some times she wanted to scream and throw things because it felt like she should be done, so we told her: Scream. Throw things. Just don’t give up on all that you’ve done. And she didn’t. She wouldn’t.
I don’t usually say anything about family when our ladies do so well, but for CJane the support her family has shown her has been a big asset to her success. Her husband has cheered her on daily. When she won the 100 lb challenge, he presented her with a tennis bracelet that he had worked for right along with her so he would have it for her on her big day. He believed in her from the beginning. Her mom gets our newsletter and watches out for her girl each month. On the day CJane hit goal, her grandmother sent her flowers.
I know not everyone is lucky enough to have support like this, but for those of you who have a family member who is trying to make changes in their life, I know I can speak for CJane and say it matters. It really matters.
Of course, those of us at RFBC take our share of the credit for her success as well. But, hey, supporting her was easy. Joyous, actually.
In the end though, for this huge success, this beautiful woman has one person to be thankful toward. Herself. She did this. Sure we helped, her family helped, her faith helped, but she wanted this, she trusted us and believed in us, she got up each morning and walked, and she ate on plan each and every day. CJane changed for CJane! What a wonderful gift to give oneself.
CJane, I guess it’s no surprise that all of us at RFBC are so proud of you and thankful that you chose to do this journey with us. You have already inspired so many as they watched your journey. You will continue to inspire many others for years to come. They may not join us at RFBC, they may not even use a raw food diet, but they will look at your before and afters and through their tears will be a spark: Hope. Belief. They will stand up and embark on their own journey, one toward health and well-being. When they struggle they will think of you, evoke the CJane within, and push forward. So on behalf of all the obese women who will stumble upon our site and your photos, thank you. Thank you for lighting a path many have given up hope of ever finding.
