For the first time I have had peace about my weight. I don't have to figure it all out in a certain amount of time and if I haven't reached my goal that doesn't mean I have failed. There is no shame. I have learned to listen to Father God and what he wants for me. God always wants good for me. Allowing Him to show me and lead me. I have always believed the lie that he doesn't care about what eat. He is too busy for that. Being in #KickWeight and using the tools that Teresa has taught us has exposed that lie I was believing. Father God does care about me and wants to be a part of my everyday life. Including what I eat. I have lost ten pounds, but the best thing is I have gained trust and freedom.

I NEED HELP!

“I need help,” the text on my phone read. It was 11:39 on Sunday morning and I was taking notes on the sermon like I always do, but I knew God wouldn’t mind that I answered her urgent plea...

"What's going on?" I replied.

"I need to get healthy," Andrea said. "I cannot do this any more. Who I am is dying."

Tears came to my eyes. Andrea, who weighed over 300 pounds, was desperate to lose weight, so desperate she'd tried starvation diets. Of course, they were short-lived. I'd been praying for her for a long time. We began meeting the next day.

Andrea lives in my town. I can help her, but there are many more Andreas who also need help. After that first meeting, I felt God leading me to open a lower cost, extremely focused online coaching class to teach the essentials of lifestyle change. #KickWeight is that class.

Results...

I want to share my victory while being in #KickWeight. I have lost 10 pounds, which is awesome, but there is so much more. I am learning how to live a victorious life. I am finally living a healthy life and being obedient to God!

Since joining #KickWeight April 1, I’ve lost 31 pounds and have been sugar-free. I am constantly in awe of God's love and Blessings. I am so thankful for this program. I thank God, Teresa Parker and the group for their sharing and honesty. I am so thankful for this program and wish God's blessings of success upon all who have joined and will join in the future.

The Holy Spirit told me a few years ago that if I renewed my mind I would succeed in any healthy eating/weight loss plan I wanted to do, but I had to renew my mind first. I didn't really know how to do that, but through #KickWeight I've learned and am still learning how. I don't binge on sweets nearly as much as I use to and I am more mindful of what I'm eating and why. Reading or listening to Teresa’s books, blogs and video teachings on a daily basis helps me to be mindful of what and why I'm eating and keeps me focused on the goal. It's when I don't engage in these activities that I tend to go off track. My mind is being renewed and my habits are changing. I have real hope that what the Holy Spirit told me will come to pass.

Here's What #KickWeight Will do for You:

Essentials of God-Centered Weight Loss

There are foundational principles we must incorporate if we are going to kick our weight problem and step into transformation.

We will work in a closed Facebook group which will act as our community of peers. I will serve as your mentor and coach to help motivate, encourage and coach you through the process. And, of course, the other Person with us will be God Himself.

These six months of classes have the potential to change your life if you do the work.

During our time together, I will present 12 encouraging, informative and thought-provoking videos. Each video will have a study guide with action steps. You will be expected to share your answers and results. I will give guidance and help with your questions regarding actions steps, failures and victories. The purpose of this class is to help you incorporate these principles into your life.

Monthly Concepts

  • Committing to God and yourself
  • Changing your habits and lifestyle in simple ways
  • Developing your personal plan of what's healthy and doable for you
  • Dealing with your emotions and your relationship with food
  • Getting past cravings and temptations
  • Surrendering to God to allow Him to transform you completely—body, soul and spirit 

I had lots of head knowledge but felt stuck, unable to implement it. Through #KickWeight, changes in thinking have created physical life changes rather than just a mental understanding of concepts. Now at 8PM I am not sitting in front of the TV fighting cravings. I am outside cleaning my front porch. The foundation for transformation was laid with the spiritual and emotional healing garnered from not just reading Sweet Freedom and Sweet Freedom Study Guide, but actually opening my heart, laying it bare before God and doing the steps in the books. God answered my queries in ways I can cling to. I truly feel He has put iron in my soul (Psalm 119:175 MSG). I am amazed and deeply humbled by His hand. In the process I have lost over 42 pounds.

Asking for Help is the First Step

Realizing we need help is important, but asking for help is the first step. We keep trying the latest, quick fix. Easy-weight-loss-in-a-package is a myth.

A total lifestyle change is difficult, but that’s what it takes to lose weight and keep it off. It means addressing everything. It’s not just substituting salads for potatoes. It’s undoing our relationship with unhealthy foods.

Dear Fellow Traveler,

I can’t want this for you more than you want it for yourself. I can only make it as affordable and accessible as I can for you to learn these valuable concepts. I’ve also made it so you have to make a commitment to be in this group. Once you join you are in the group for six months. No coming and going. When you come, you come to stay.

I had to make this kind of commitment when I began my journey. It’s keeping your agreement with yourself, me and God to continue this journey even when it seems hard, and especially when you fail. Because you will fail. It’s a given. No problem, though. Just get back up and continue.

The ball is in your court. Will you join the team or not?

Since the start of this session of #KickWeight, I have lost 10 pounds, given up sugar and artificial sweeteners (other than stevia and honey) and stopped drinking diet soda and coffee with creamer. My attitudes about food are slowly changing. I am binging less. I still have a long way to go, but it helps to look back and see how far I have come in a few short months!

- Angi Crostenberg 

#KickWeight has been the trigger of a whole avalanche of answered prayers and changes in my life! God is good and gracious and kind. In His time with His still voice, He has changed so much of my thinking about myself and my body. I have been following the low carb lifestyle for two weeks now, have lost nine pounds, and am going to 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 badmouthing myself. God is changing me from the inside out and I give Him all the praise and honour He deserves.

God is moving leaps and bounds in my life. I feel like He has revealed so much already through #KickWeight. I am learning a new skill on how to deal with my emotions through the process. Forgiveness and searching for truth are part of my everyday life now. I have lost 17 pounds, which is fantastic because I am not good at losing weight. It is very hard for me. It's hard work to eat less and exercise more. It takes time, commitment and sacrifice. I also feel like I've finally found a group of good Christian people I can relate to.
