"I started this program being 130 pounds overweight and now I just have about 45 more pounds to go and it is nothing I have done but it is all of what the Lord is doing in my life through this program. Not only have I lost weight but my relationship with the Lord is so much more intimate, my relationship with my husband and my children is so much closer, and my relationship with others is so much more at peace. I have learned how much the Lord really does love me and that nothing is too hard for Him." -Cyndi
"I have been a type 2 diabetic for more than ten years. Having diabetes presents special challenges to weight loss. Sometimes it is so frustrating and hard we tend to give up everything. . . . taking our meds, following our meal plan, etc. Thin Within has shown me that it is all in God's hands. . . . our healing, our disease, our weight, and any other issues we may have. I have been out of control for a long time and am now working towards good health. I have put all this in God's hands as I have my weight loss. I started out weighing 267 pounds and now weigh 228. This was from just telling God I couldn't do it alone and wanting to grow closer to Him." -Michele
"I have learned a great deal from Thin Within, and appreciate all of your support and services. I was able to lose weight and keep it off successfully thanks to your program, and the lessons I learned have also kept me from gaining excess weight during my pregnancy. Yours is truly a wonderful program, and I recommend it to many people! Thank you for everything!" -Kristen
"I have successfully lost my weight and grown closer to the Lord than I ever thought possible. Thank you so much for all the support and the great workbooks and material. I have recommended you to many people and without you I would not have been able to go from a size 22 to a size 12 in the last year. Returning to work with a positive Christ-centered attitude is just one of the many benefits of weight loss. I took up roller blading with my eight year old granddaughter and love it. Praise God for you guys and the lesson on Daniel that finally got through to me and made me listen to God. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you." -Bev
"I have been a member now for three weeks, and I must say that this is just such a blessing for me. I had been in another program and had really come to feel condemmed and like just such a miserable failure. I had even begun to doubt God's love for me. You can imagine my joy to come to this program and once again, to find that yes, He does love me! I am so glad to have found this. I began week four today and have lost 5 pounds. But what is most important is that my walk with the Lord is once again vibrant and alive. Thank you so much for this awesome message of His mercy grace and love!!" -Lucy
"I want to encourage you to try this program. When I signed up almost two weeks ago I weighed 207lbs, I weighed myself this morning and I weigh 199lbs. Praise the Lord, it was just amazing. As soon as I started the program online it all clicked. I know that it is God doing the work in me, for being obedient. I firmly believe that He led me here, and that this is the course of action He wanted me to take. So, if you feel led to join, please don't hesitate, I know that if I have been able to do this, anyone can." -Donna
"I don't want to open myself up to spiritual attack, but by the grace of God I've been released of 9 lbs in the last three weeks since starting TW for a total of about 40 now. I'd read the book and going to the support board before, but the "new" info and encouragement from the program has fed me and made me less hungry for empty comfort food. I wanted to share this with the wonderful people that are writing TW. -Teresa
"Even though I've lost 35 lbs. eating this way, this approach to leaning on Jesus through all this is so new to me. No more feeling condemned for falling, no more feeling too tired to go on. . . just relying on the Lord to pull me through. I wonder, am I the only one who feels so different. I still go past "5" and yet I know my redeemer lives, I know I will see Him, and I know I can rely on His power to continue in this whole thing, this whole life change. I never did "lose" those last twenty pounds, and I now know it was because He wanted me here, to continue to learn about grace, mercy, forgiveness and compassion. By summer I know reports from these boards are going to be so awesome, and I feel hope and confidence that I'll be one of those with one! I'm so glad to see familiar "faces" here on these forums. . . God bless you all today." -Barb L.
"Thank you to all the TW staff and writers. These lessons have been so incredible. . . . not the fluffy feel good stuff, but challenging heart messages. I can't wait to wake up each day and see what the Lord has for me. I have never felt this hunger and thirst to know His Word before! I thank you so much for your dedication in getting TW out here for us. . . it has been such an answer to prayer." -Wendy
"I am loving every Scripture I read and know God is at work changing me from the inside out. I look forward to each day with Him. Thanks again so much for this program. It is a real answer to prayer." -Terri
"I have been a Christian for over 25 years and have had a lot of condemnation in my life from people, and this is the first time in so many years that I have finally realized how much the Lord really loves me -YES ME!!! I just cannot even say in words what this program has done for me already. The fact that He wants me to have peace in my life and with my body is such a joy for me. . . . I am relearning how much the Lord loves me, and I am not condemned for wrong doing, but He gently brings me back to Himself." -Cyndi
"After having misgivings and confusion about getting into another program. . . . I am totally excited with what I am finding in the new TW program. It is more than I ever expected. I am thrilled with what I am seeing and excited to see how God is already working in peoples lives -mine included. I have been "dry" for so long. This is an oasis bringing me to the "Living Water." I am praying we will all find the Jesus as our source for everything, including our eating. For me, it is time to move forward, forgetting what is behind. This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it! One day at a time, one step at a time. . . "
"I am constantly in awe at just how full of GRACE the material is! It brings me to tears at times -it just brings such a new and glorious light on the love of God as a tender FATHER towards us. . . not as any kind of judgemental commander or anything else that's negative. Thank you all SOOOOOO much for this material and this course!!!" -Jacki
"Thank you so much TW for this ministry that is showing us so clearly the God of hope, unconditional love and endless grace. You are an answer to prayer for many." -Holly
"I have always marveled at people who could sit down in front of someting to eat and just say "I'm not hungry" and then not eat it. Since I have been trying to learn how my incredible body is suppose to work, and since I've used the 0 to 5 scale as a guide, I have been able to do this. I sat in front of a box of donuts all last Saturday and didn't eat them. . . not because I couldn't but because I wasn't hungry. And when I WAS hungry, I wanted something more real. This was a miraculous moment. I have even sat down with my family at dinner and said, I'm just not hungry now and then sat and talked to them." -Alice
"This study is so amazing. I'm learning so much about God and myself. I am so thankful to all of you who have obeyed God and started this program. It has truly changed my life. . . I never thought I could leave anything on my plate and now I find it easy to stop eating when I am satisfied. The emotional eating past 5 is more difficult. I am much more aware of it though and stop dead in my hand to mouth and ask the Holy Spirit to take the "need" away. Praise the Lord for his faithfulness to me." - Beverly
"The Lord has given me new insight since starting Thin Within. When I eat from 0 to 5, I am not being "good enough", I am getting my food out of the way so Jesus can transform me. II Cor. 3:18" - Lori
"This was so helpful to me especially the part where you said to ask God to help you find "5". I guess that this is not something that I will learn in a day. :) Thank God for his mercy and for your encouragement! I always approached weight loss with an all or nothing attitude. Either I get the rules down pat, day in and day out, or I failed the diet. TW feels like a plan that God has just for me!" - pp-ridegrad
