Why Can't I Stop Eating?

To Lose Weight and Keep It Off You Must Deal With

The Roots of Emotional Eating

Now includes an exclusive Video Vault of resources worth over $5000 for members to access any time!

Teresa Shields Parker, author of Sweet Grace, has lost more than 260 Pounds. She understands the struggles of being super morbidly obese and the extreme issues surrounding emotional eating. Using Sweet Freedom principles she will lead you to uncover the reasons and discard those roots.

Facing the Real Emotional Issues

Our problem is not the right diet, it's facing the reason why we eat when we aren't hungry and when we know it's going to add more pounds to our bodies making us tired, sluggish and irriitable Another diet is not going to help because weight loss is about changing from the inside out like Romans 12:2 in The Message so aptly puts it.

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.

Sweet Freedom Principles

Sweet Freedom principles will help you discover the core issues that hold you back from losing weight and keeping it off. When you discover the emotional, mental and spiritual issues that are really operating in your life, you can trace the root and begin the healing process.

You will need to go deep and share the things holding you back. Why do you eat? Overwhelm, stress, frustration, anger, loneliness, sadness, depression, regret, guilt, fear, bored, rejected. Maybe you eat when you want to celebrate, reward yourself because no one else will, be social or just because you want the entire world to go away.

This group is not about another diet or eating plan. We'll talk about those, but we're more concerned about the pressing issues that cause us to overeat in massive quantities and hate ourselves the next day when our jeans won't zip. Questions like:

  • Why can't I stop eating?
  • Why is it that I know what to do, but can't seem to stop myself from continuing to do it?
  • Why do I crave food constantly?
  • Why does even the thought of being without food make me want to eat all the more?
  • Why do I feel like I am in bondage to sugar, breads, potatoes and starchy foods??
  • If I don't eat, what can I do when my emotions get out of control?
  • How do I fix the mess I've created of my life?

We're going to get to the core of your unique issue and when we do, we will hit pay dirt. The core is where the root is. The evil one loves to hide the roots because he knows we we find them, pulling them is going to be easy!

Because of the nature of the group privacy and confidentiality is very important. We are run from a private, secret Facebook group. Study Guide and videos are also accessible in a private membership area on Teresa's website. All coaching and discussion, though, is done though the Facebook group.

YOU are the Main Ingredient to Your Success

The work in the group is not hard. You CAN do this. However, YOU have to do the work, watch the videos, do the action steps, ask questions, join the video calls, share and hold on as tight as you can to Jesus. Your coach will give you support and stretch to go further on this journey.

Join now if you are ready to work hard on your whole being—body, soul and spirit. Join now if you don't want another diet, but you crave a total transformation. Join now if you are sick and tired of being sick and tired. Join now if you are really ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work. REALLY ready.

Since joining Sweet Change Group, I have lost over 60 lbs. This alone is a big deal because I am only 4' 11” tall. Even more than weight loss, though, I see the Fruit of the Spirit of self control active in my life in a way I never dreamed it could. I have been able to make decisions based on what is healthy for my body regardless of what is going on emotionally.

Thanks to Teresa’s coaching I have been healed in many areas emotionally. This has made a huge difference in my life. Starting with forgiveness in particular, I have been able to move on from hurtful issues of abuse and neglect from my childhood, as well as the guilt for how I chose to deal with it using food and other harmful behaviors. The healing process has broken down walls between me and God the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Now I have new tools to access the true Source of wholeness I have always needed.

I have learned to take those emotional things where they belong...to the Throne Room of Grace! It doesn't mean I don't have temptations, it just means I can speak back to those temptations like Jesus did in the wilderness. There are still areas to work on, but they are coming.

I have learned Sweet Change to apply these principals in other areas of my life like finances. The best part though is how my walk with The Lord has grown sweeter and closer!

Personal Note From Teresa

Dear Fellow Traveler,

I can't tell you how many programs I quit just before I got a BREAKTHROUGH. Being involved in the group for six months is where you will see results if you are doing the work. I will not budge on the commitment. Remember, you are making an investment in yourself.

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.

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 for the period it takes, you will get your breakthrough. It won't come magically, but it will come with dedication and perseverance.

The value of coaching, mentoring and accountability can't be measured.

It is worth everything - your very life...

Sweet Change Group has given me the tools, direction and support I need to walk through this journey of food addiction with victory. I have learned to take responsibility for my actions and take those things that have bound me and kept me from moving forward to Jesus for healing. Every day I learn something new and am encouraged by someone else in the group. The coaching from Teresa Shields Parker has been vital because I know she comes from a place of authenticity, integrity and wisdom. Is it a quick fix? No. Is it easy? Some days, it is not. Is it worth it? Absoultely! Without a doubt.

My tendency is to do things on my own, and even through that stopped working for me a while ago, I continued to use that strategy as it relates to my food issues. When I joined this group, I decided I was going to use the group as my new strategy. Because it’s online and always available, I’m never on my own! There is always a new post to read, a video to watch, action steps to complete, accountability to keep. I still tend towards doing things with my own power. This group gently reminds me that the power to overcome is in God and God has responded beautifully to me when I seek Him out.

Questions About Sweet Change

In the process of starting Sweet Change Weight Loss Group we've had several questions and comments. Here are a few (click to open up the answers).

“Yes, I am interested in the group. $87 a month is at least the price of my fast food habit. I spend at least $25 a week on fast food alone. And I know me. I'll quit after a month. I need commitment of at least six months to see this through.”

"I've been searching for a weight loss accountability group that's not about food plans. I know what to do, I just don't do it. I need a group that will help me figure out why I don't do what I should do."

"I need someone to motivate me to lose this mountain of weight."

I am a carbohydrate addict. Everyday I battled with simple carbs. I hated the bondage it had over me, I hated that I couldn't see the way out, I kept going back to what I knew, back to the heavy chains that bound to these foods.

I kept pleading with God to set me free from the hold it had on me. Then in December 2013, God answered my prayer with the book, Sweet Grace, by Teresa Shields Parker. The book opened doors of revelation of my bondage. I saw triggers, doors of the past that had been left open allowing wounds to stay open and sting me, but with zeroing in on my behaviors and making changes in a positive manner that will benefit my well being I have been able to go forward. Renouncing the lies that are contrary to how God the Father, Holy Spirit, the Comforter, and Jesus, my best friend, feel about me, I am walking in freedom. Everyday I am given a choice. I don't chose simple carbohydrates anymore. Each one in Sweet Change group has a story, each one has chosen to write HIStory on our hearts. Although this is still a battle I face every day, I am very thankful with God I can win the battle. I am also thankful God used Teresa to speak to me through Sweet Grace so I can now live in His Sweet Freedom.

As you join Sweet Change group you are going to be blessed because you have embarked on an amazing journey. I have fought food addiction for 50 years.

For me, Sweet Change was a healing place, a restoring place, a finding-your-voice-and-glory place. Sweet Change is a place where I dreamed dreams that are possible with the Lord. This group is truly a gift beyond my wildest dreams. The thing I learned is to listen well and heed God’s call, follow the wise words and plan well. There were twists and turns and bumps in the road, but I learned to hold fast to Jesus. As I walked the Sweet Change journey I found the person I buried in the junk I had held on to. But as I traveled, I learned to look at my reflection and finally like what I saw. To new members I say, “Hold on. Do not give up. The Lover of your soul is, and always has been, pursuing you.”
