My name is Kandace Kendrick. I love the Lord with all my heart. My faith in God is everything! I am 29 years old.  I am a mother of 2 of the most handsome boys in the world.  I work full time. I love singing, dancing, seafood, and traveling. I am very family oriented. My family is very important to me. I have struggled with losing weight for some years now. After the kids, college and other life events, I have just put it to the side. After getting the news that I was diagnosed with Hypertension and Hypercholesterolemia I knew that it was time to make a change in my life. I am so grateful for this opportunity that I am given with FWSW.  I prayed for it and Now, I’m here!!!  I’m ready for the Challenge!!!

6/25/17. I had an amazing time at The Run Like A Hero Race! Months ago I would have told you I'm not running or walking any races. Now I'm up thanking God for the opportunity to be able to use my legs!!! We sometimes take the small things in life for granted. Mama Tina always tells me You're stronger then what you think. And with everything that has happened in these last few months and my strength to persevere. I believe her! This has been such a life changing experience for me! I'm forever grateful!!

6/18/17 The highlight for this week is running/walking 10 miles. I felt so great knowing that I accomplished this. I have never in life walked or ran that far ever!  The feeling is surreal !!!! I really don't have that much to say this week I'm just working on me being the best me ever! 😊

6/11/17

This week has really been a test of my faith! ButYvonne through it all you have to keep moving! I'm finding my strength every week. Tina use to tell me a lot that I'm stronger then what I think. And I can honestly say that's definitely true. I've never in my life ran or walked any type of marathon. And I've never been up early in the morning working out. This program has really took me our of my comfort zone. And I'm appreciative of it! I'm less then a pound a weigh of hitting a lost of 40 pounds. I know in my heart when I go to my doctor's appt she will take me off of my high blood pressure meds and high cholesterol meds. I'll be 30 on Tuesday and I can say I haven't felt this great in years! 

       6/2/17 I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me! I was able to conquer 8 miles. I never would have thought I could do it! Gods strength and Cici really helped me get through this challenge and I'm forever grateful. I can't wait to see what next week will bring!!! Come on with it!!!

 

 5/28/17 This week I definitely worked my tail off lol. Literally so I know tomorrow's weigh in should be a good one! I pushed really hard on my run Thursday and I was able to run most of the 6 minutes we had to do. I wasn't able to finish my run Saturdayay because of my knees and lower back but I didn't let it stop me I walked around my neighborhood at a pace that made me comfortable. I'm amazed of my strength this week because I've been battling some things in my personal life but there's this old song that goes "If I hold my peace and let the Lord fight my battle VICTORY VICTORY SHALL BE MINE!! I'm a firm believer of that I love my life! You have to speak positivity and life over any situation and remember that God is for you. I'm looking forward to this week to come! I'm ready and I'm fighting!!!! I may be sore but I'm working towards greatness and if that's what it takes hey I'm fine with that!!!! Peace and Blessings!!

5/21/17 This week has been such a rough week. I've been fighting with my allergies and some other type of bug. But through it all God is good and I will fight even harder next week. I lost 2.8 lbs this week and I feel good hopefully this week I will be at my 30 pound weight loss!

 

 5/14/17. This week has been a great week. I lost 2.8 pounds. I wanted to lose more but as long as I lost and I'm doing the best God will handle the rest!!! Thanks for all your Support and Encouraging words!!!

5/7/17 This week has been a great week! I've arrived early all week!! My weigh in was awesome. I lost 5 pounds!!!!  I just feel really great about everything! Each week I try to push myself harder and harder!! I want to succeed I want this more than anything right now!!! Week 7 , Come on with it!!!!!!😊😊😊😊

4/30/17 This week has been a rough one! I've had so much go on that the average person would have probably just quit but I'm still here and fighting. My weigh in was great I lost 6 pounds!!!! And I feel great about it! On top of that I walked/ran 5 miles. I've never in my life done anything like that. And I feel great about it!!! Even though I'm a little sore I'm ready to get back to the gym!! I've never had so much drive in my life!! I'm just thankful for this program and the people that God is using to get me to the next level!!!

 

 

4/24/17 Hey everyone I truly do apologize my blogs have been showing up in my comments :-(

 

This week's weigh in wasn't the best at all. I didn't lose anything but I really struggled last week I didn't prepare my meals and it made a big difference! It's a learning experience! I just know this week I was on top of my game! I have so many things going on in my life at this time but through it all I am going to keep it pushing! Thank you everyone for your encouraging words!

 

4/11/17 I had my second weigh in yesterday and I lost 4.4 pounds! I am so excited about my progress  it makes me want to work harder and harder to reach my goal. So I'm striving for 7 more lbs next week! I didn't do the best with my meal prepping this week because of some things that I had to deal with last week but each week I plan on getting better and better!

 

4/9/17

    Praying you are feeling better. We are all here to always help anyway we can. We have no doubt you will hit your 30 lb mark. Hard work and commitment to yourself is showing. How wonderful to think 30 lbs in 8 weeks time of training hard and eating right. Just think staying on this pace will put you over 50 lbs by the end of the program.

    Keep focused and pushing and the best is yet to come.

    We begin week 9 Monday and time will go by so fast. Make sure to take in every moment!

    Week 9 Let's do this!!
