We’d all like to be free of the things we craved and reduced in size or at least down to a normal size. I’ve got some resources that are FREE and REDUCED and will help you become free and reduced. First, though, I want to share why I developed these resources and why I’m putting them on sale and even giving some away.
Every week I get emails from people asking me how they can do what I did—namely lose a lot of weight. It gets overwhelming because I so want to help every person. See, I know how it feels to be trapped in a body so large you feel even God can’t take care of the problem. And I hurt for them.
For a while I tried helping people by email. This just doesn’t work. There is no ongoing relationship and I have to tell everyone the same thing over again. Then, God gave me an idea and I really played Moses and balked against it, coming up with my own excuses. I felt He wanted me to begin an online weight loss coaching group.
This was something I vowed I’d never do. However, I felt God was not only asking me to do it, He was wanting it started immediately. I asked Him how I could possibly do that with my do-it or get-off-the-you know what attitude. He didn’t even have to tell me how. I knew instantly He had given me the gift of compassion for those in the same situation I had been in for years.
See, I know all the excuses and the reasons we go to food for comfort, protection, companionship. I can smell an excuse a mile away. Excuses do one thing for us, the keep us in the current comfort zone we have built. If a person wants to stay there, I cannot budget them. Only God can do that.
Because of that, I wondered if I had the patience to lead such a group. I knew God was calling me to do it and so without knowing a lot about what I was getting into I began the group on July 1, 2014. It’s now been going for nine months and I can’t imagine ever not coaching. You have no idea of the joy I receive when one of my group members has a breakthrough. It is indescribable.
The compassion God gave me mixed with that other part that some call the prophecy motive or black and white outlook on life—do it or don’t—makes coaching others second nature for me, but only when I allow the Holy Spirit to lead.
Sweet Change Weight Loss Coaching Group is by far the best resource I have to offer. Because of that, I’ve decided to offer two months FREE in the group with the purchase of my newest resource, Sweet Change 101: Seven Keys for the Weight Loss Journey. I developed the course to give the foundational elements folk need to get started on the journey. I want everyone who comes into Sweet Change Group to have these foundational keys. The group, though, is the only place I can help people.
Those in the group can ask any question and I will answer to the best of my ability. Without direct one-on-one coaching, this is the only place I offer these services and it is my delight, privilege and honor to do so.

Write Your Story
Write Your Story is not a weight loss resource, but the video of a 90-minute workshop I did helping individuals figure out the ins and outs of writing their story, whether in book or article form. It includes a workbook and exercises to get you started on the process.

Why did I develop all of these products? I want to see you successful. Diets, pills, shakes and pre-prepared meals are not the answer. LIFEstyle change is. That’s an intentional emphasis on LIFE in all it’s aspects.
I challenge you to follow God’s advice: “I have placed before you this day life and death; blessings and curses. Oh that you might choose life so that you and your descendants might live” Duet. 30:19 NLT.
You’ve got nothing to lose, but a whole lot of weight.
