Weight Loss Bible Study Starts Today

I don’t know how many years I put “Lose X number of pounds” on my new year’s resolution list and then failed to reach my goal. Too many to count! If that’s on your list this year, I wanted to share a great resource that can help you lose weight.

My friend Heidi is starting a weight loss Bible study on her blog today, complete with encouraging daily blog posts, live webinars, a Facebook group, and a renewing of the mind emphasis. Last time I talked to her, she had almost 300 signed up so it should be a fun and lively group!

If you’re interested, here is the link with the information: Thin Within Bible Study.¬†You can also download the first week of the study for free there. Heidi teaches a hunger only approach to eating, but because she has a renewing of the mind emphasis, I’m thinking it would be helpful even if you have different boundaries.

I am also guest posting on Heidi’s blog today. For the record, the middle picture on her blog was taking many years ago, after I first lost weight – I do not look that young today! As you already know if you’ve seen other pictures of me. :)

Hope you are all enjoying the new year!! I still have 3 out of 4 of my kids at home so I am really enjoying it!

      Thanks, Loren. Hope you have a good year, too! I think the weight was about 25 pounds total – I can’t remember exactly how much except that I got my 20% Weight Watcher’s pin (losing 20% of your total body weight). But I’m only 5’1 1/2 so 25 pounds is a lot for me.

    Thanks Barb for the link. My husband has lost 50 pound in the last six months with weight watchers, I am so proud of him. I need to lose weight too but can’t seem to bring myself to join weight watchers or any diet plan…but I am going to check out this link because I know I need some help losing. We travel a lot due to our ministry so there are times my routine is totally over turned. But I do love the encouragement that comes from yours and others post that I visited. My soul is refreshed and challenged so maybe blogging with others who are on the same page is the way to go. Thanks again for the link,.

      Wow, 50 pounds is so much – good for him! I know what you mean about going on a diet. It’s so hard to make that decision to invite suffering into your life! :) I think it would be great to join Heidi’s group. She has a great community plus Heidi is such an encourager. And it’s always fun to read the guest posters on the blog. They also have a free app out that looks interesting.

Thanks for your comment!
