Get fit with Rebekah!!

I am so excited to invite you all to my "Get Fit With Rebekah" challenge group.

Opening up enrollment for my next fitness and nutrition bootcamp starting March 31st! I am *so* excited for this group! We will focus on proper nutrition eating whole, nutrient dense foods; short, intense workouts that will guarantee results; and working on making this a LIFESTYLE change, not just a crazy quick fix. I only take a few new clients a month, so if you have been looking to get started, now is the time!

There is a financial investment required (to make sure you have all of the tools you need to seriously rock this), but there is a range of options, so I am sure we will find something to fit with YOUR budget and needs.
Lets get healthy inside and out together. I'm so excited to walk beside you as your coach.

 Find me on Facebook under Rebekah Bancroft.

Rebekah posted this picture of Tyrus today. It literally stopped me in my tracks. Where did his baby chub unless go? You know that baby fat that kinda follows them into toddlerhood, until they eventually start growing up and start thinning out? He is way past that. The last time I held him he was still a little squshy and little and toddleish, but this picture clearly shows how big and grown up he is. When we talk on the phone he is so sweet. He talks very fast and I can tell he has so much to tell me but just can't say it fast enough. My heart longs to be with him, but I am so happy to see him doing so well. He sent me some pictures through the mail about a month ago. 
I cherish these pictures and will keep them forever. 

My cousin recently brought to my attention an article that was written way back after Tyrus was born. The writer of the article interviewed me and Tyrus's mom. I think they did a wonderful job of depicting my side of adoption and also Rebekah's side of adoption. Unfortunately,  they had to close the article down from any further comments because a war was started. It seems that some of the people that were commenting disagreed with my decision to give Tyrus up for adoption. Their view on my life was that I could have raised him, and I should not have given him up for adoption, and I hurt on my children by making the choice not to parent my sweet boy. And although I do respect everyone's opinion, and I do miss my son, things are how they are supposed to be. Tyrus belongs with Rebekah and Ben. Tyrus will always be the brother of my children. But if I didn't choose to give him up for adoption, Rebekah and Ben would not of had the pleasure of being his parents, and Tyrus's new brothers and sister would not have the best brother ever. To God be the glory. Things are how they should be.

I regret nothing....

I ran across this picture today while rummaging through my things in the shed. The memories of it brought me to tears. I was literally feeling weak in the knees.

This picture is of me in 2009. I am holding my newborn son and I am about to say good bye to him as his mom and dad take him home to Michigan. He is my fifth born son and I had chose not to parent him. Life had gotten the best of me and I could no longer control it. I weighed 319 pounds and I was a single mom to four other small children. The pain I felt in this moment was unbearable. My chin was quivering and I was trying to keep myself from falling apart. I kept looking at his feet and rubbing his legs...they were so perfect.

One memory I have in this moment was being very thankful to the couple I had chosen to parent my son. By giving them my sweet boy meant a great burden was taken from me. My life was falling in around me and I didn't want my new son to be sucked into it. I was grateful he wouldn't have to be part of my dysfunction.

Its hard to look back and remember these things but I am grateful to have the memories and the pictures. It shows me how far I have come. Its is seriously by Gods grace that I have any life at all.

I regret nothing as long as I have learned from it.

I regret nothing as long as I can help others with what I have learned.
