562EDBE2-3DB3-477B-B226-41A6CD852DC0

I have become quite a fan of specialty coffee! Peppermint mochas, in particular. Iced or hot, both are at the very top of my list of “Ways to Pamper Myself.” Massages, manicures, facials, and pedicures are also on that list, too! I’m not sure which would be #1 – they are all favorites! The Dutch […]

Feasting on God and His Word

E0209B4A-BDD6-4DA7-829D-5E3F233E7D11

This morning I read from Matthew 5:6: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled.” Not only does He satisfy, He blesses us as well. This does not come effortlessly. It is so easy to get busy and slack on reading God’s Word. It is worth the effort, and […]

In the small coaching group that Barb Shelton and I are both part of, Heidi posted the following questions: In the past, when you have committed to letting go of extra weight and keeping it off, what has been your largest hindrance?  …  What do you think you can do to overcome this hindrance?” Barb […]

Treasuring God More Than Food

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Treasuring God More Than Food

Now that I’m on track, I’m realizing how much my relationship with food has changed. Food was able to stifle any feelings I had, and it did so quickly by numbing the pain. God doesn’t work that way, so that has taken some getting used to. It’s very different. I’m learning how to be patient. […]

I Have Turned the Corner!

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - I Have Turned the Corner!

When I got up that morning, five years ago today, my life changed forever. As I was walking down the hallway, God said to me, “Go to the emergency room.” As soon as He said that, I immediately asked Sam to take me. Not knowing the outcome, I went, and God spared my life. I […]

Anxiously Awaiting Zero

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Anxiously Awaiting Zero 4

My flesh machinery has really been riled up these past few days, with food loudly and persistently calling my name, like, all the time! Awaiting zero has been harder than usual. We are taught in Thin Within that overeating – eating when we aren’t hungry – can cover raw, uncomfortable emotions, thus numbing us and […]

Breaking Off the Taproot

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Breaking Off the Taproot

I feel like I broke off a huge chunk of a taproot today! This bondage to food is like a huge tree with very long and thick taproots burrowing deep into the ground. The taproots become larger, longer, and thicker every time we eat when we aren’t hungry. The stronghold (tree and taproots) just get […]

“Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.”   I’ve really never been thin. When I was younger I had lost weight but didn’t know how to keep it off. So I ultimately gained […]
