Woo-Hoo! Here we go again! Doors are still open for the breakthrough Christian Weight Loss Coaching class, #KickWeight. I just realized that in the last two sessions combined, class members, the ones I call the Beautiful People, lost well over 1,100 pounds as a group! No hype. Just God doing His thing and making what we think is impossible, possible.

I always HATE to close the doors for what I see as a life-saving offer. I think back to when I weighed 430 pounds. I know how I would have felt if I were trying to make a decision to join or not and I found out the doors just closed! It would be devastating.

The introduction video that explains what we do has been posted with action steps. The first full teaching video won’t be posted until May 31 when we go into full #KickWeight mode. So I’m keeping the doors open until May 30 at midnight.

After that, doors will close as this group goes into the chrysalis to emerge butterflies surrendering to God’s design for them. Although it is a great analogy there is one huge difference between the caterpillar and a person. We have to choose to enter the change process.

We have to decide we want to soar in whatever area God has designed for us to rise above the masses of humanity struggling to just survive. He wants “to give us everything in abundance, more than we expect—life in its fullness until we overflow.”1 And that doesn’t mean overflowing with food.

Abundance to God means “far more than I could even imagine, guess or request in my wildest dreams.”2 The switch has to be activated in our brains to understand there is more to life than eating the foods we constantly crave.

God tells us that if we want to follow Him we have to deny ourselves or put aside our selfish interests.3 Friends, eating whatever I want, whenever I want it is a very selfish interest. In #KickWeight we address these issues head-on. It’s a class unlike any weight loss program you have been in.

Join me and many others like Michelle Lee, a nurse, who lost 95 pounds and is continuing to lose. See her story on the #KickWeight page. Jo Ellerbee lost over 40 pounds. Susan Carr lost over 30. Debbie Magner lost 10. All are continuing to lose.

Sanet Koekemoer, from South Africa, lost nine pounds, but more amazing is she says during #KickWeight, God “changed so much of my thinking about myself and my body. I have lost nine pounds and I’m going to the gym four times a week. I feel such freedom and joy!

“Thank you, Teresa, for all your God-sent answers and your caring and praying for all of us in this group. One of my biggest accomplishments is being at peace with myself. No more swearing and bad-mouthing myself. God is changing me from the inside out!”

And yes, this class works for those anywhere on the globe who have access to the internet because it’s run from a private, closed Facebook group.

I love it when folks really take to heart the lessons in #KickWeight and they become part of their lives. Tammy, who has lost more than 20 pounds, says, “I am learning a new skill in how to deal with my emotions. Forgiveness and search for truth are part of my everyday life now. It takes time, commitment and sacrifice, but I feel like I’ve finally found a group of good Christian people I can relate to.”

There are many more stories, so many it’s hard for me to keep up with them. One of my favorites is from a missionary, who lives in a closed country and cannot reveal her name. She took a risky step of faith coming into the group.

She started in #KickWeight and has moved on to Sweet Change Group. She just reported she has lost 50 pounds and has gone down two sizes. People are beginning to notice and are wondering how she has lost so much weight so fast.

What a testimony. Did you hear that? People are watching! What will they see in you that is a testimony to the great God we serve?

Doors are open and ready for you. Join HERE.

I’ll see you in the group!
