Why Can't I Stop Eating?
“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, but they were always short-lived. She just wanted to be free of the desire to eat continually. We began meeting the next day.
There are many more like Andrea who need help on this journey. After talking with Andrea I felt God leading me to open a Christian weight loss coaching academy with all my resources available to help all the Andreas of the world step into a healthy lifestyle change.
Overcomers is that place.
I was a wife, mom and regional Christian newspaper publisher, but my life was a mess. So, I get it. I know how hard it is to be in bondage to sugar, junk foods, highly processed carbohydrate-laden foods. Along with that comes overwhelming self-doubt, shame, failure and years of heartache. I’ve been there and it is exhausting. Today, though, I’ve got good news. You don’t have to live in that place any longer. There is healing, freedom, deliverance and transformation available for you!
"I was diagnosed with diabetes about 18 months ago. I did not take medication. Instead I got serious about lifestyle change. I have quit lying to myself and started taking care of me. In the process, I’ve lost 68 pounds. My diabetes is gone and my A1C was 5.1 for my latest lab. I am off blood pressure medication and currently take no medication! Teresa’s coaching has literally been a lifesaver!"

Weight loss is not an outside job. It is an inside job. So that's where we are going to start. We're going to delve into the sticky, wicket of why we eat and what we can do to stop those habits.
"After a divorce I began having weight issues. Now three years later, thanks to being in Teresa’s courses and coaching groups, I have lost 93 pounds, regularly do weight-lifting and am married to a new God-given blessing of a husband! Learning to forgive deep-seated hurts in my life helped me go forward to lose weight and begin to trust and love again. I'm thankful for the inner healing I received from Teresa and her course."

Dear Fellow Traveler,
I can't tell you how many programs I quit just before I got a BREAKTHROUGH. By entering this course, you are committing to Overcomers Academy for at least six months. That is where you will see results if you are doing the work. Make this a gift to yourself, an investment in becoming the person you've always imagined.
I know the mindset of those who are extremely overweight. Remember, I've been there. We try one thing for a short period of time and when the "magic" we thought was there doesn't work, we stop. That's why I require at least a six months commitment.
This group is designed to get you over that hump—to get through the middle where most people get stuck. I know if you stay with the process, you will get your breakthrough. It won't come magically, but it will come with dedication and perseverance. Stay as long as you like, but come to stay. Come committed to give this community everything you've got. You owe that to yourself.
"My husband and I have been missionaries overseas for 47 years in a closed country. I’m 72 years old and have been overweight or obese most of my life. I joined Teresa’s group and have lost 76 pounds! I’m the lowest weight I’ve been in my entire adult life. I even wore a pair of jeans for the first time in forever! More than that I now have the tools necessary and the community behind me so that I can keep the weight off."

"My skewed thoughts of myself and food have kept me in a vicious cycle of destruction and failure for over 40 years. As God leads me through Teresa’s teachings, ministering and coaching, I am experiencing healing in the area of food addiction. A side benefit is I have lost 43 pounds. I now really know God has plans to prosper me and not to harm me."
