Break free from dieting and compulsive exercise! God never intended for food to torment us or for us to spend two hours on the elliptical making up for what we ate earlier in the day. Instead, he longs for us to experience his peace, joy, and rest in the presence of food. He longs for us to move our bodies out of expressions of joy and worship…because it feels good to do so! God invites us to shake off the shackles of fear that keep us a slave to exercise to make up for what we eat.
What IS Thin Within? How can you start right now, with no money invested, to shed extra weight and to walk in the freedom that is yours?
A free online class will begin January 6th, 2014. Please join us! The only thing you will need for it is a Thin Within workbook, but even if you don’t have one of those, please join us anyhow! (You can get a free sample of one week’s worth of material at this link.) The webinars will encourage you and there will be new videos posted here to the blog each week as well.
This post outlines the details for how you can get involved in the class that starts January 6th and runs through April 7th.
If you want to see the emails that have been sent to the class list already, the first one, sent on December 3, is here. The second, sent on December 16, is here.
What do you have to lose other than obsession with counting and exercise? With Thin Within, we eat what we enjoy in moderation. We become mindful of what our bodies need to operate at their best. We exercise because we enjoy doing so and relish the health benefits. We no longer live in fear! Sound good to you? Come on along!

Heidi, on the fb page there is a lot of talk about cravings, etc. I was wondering if you could also address not eating…I’ve surpressed my hunger feelings so I have a hard time knowing if I am hungry because before I would wait and save my points or calories for a big meal so that I could feel really full. Does TW address this type of eating as well? Thanks so much!
Well, Truthfully, Beth, Thin Within’s principles say you can enjoy any food between the parameters of 0 and 5…hunger and satisfaction. So, there really wouldn’t be a place for eating past a 5 and considering that a good thing or bypassing a 0 and considering that a good thing. A person can certainly do what they like :-), but if they want to faithfully apply Thin Within principles, the goal for every eating occasion is to wait for 0 and eat when at a 0 and to stop at a 5 or sooner. I don’t think I have answered your question, though…?
I would like to sign up for the January on line class with you. I already have the materials, but would like to be part of your group Heidi. Was told about your class from Brenda A. in Clayton, looking so forward to starting with you in January. Had taken a class with Brenda & was successful at changing my eating habits & would love to continue on & make this a lifetime pattern in my life. Have struggled all my life with my weight & would love to run 3 miles a day again & to be able to dance the traditional Mexican dances & ballet again. That is my goal to be able to move gracefully, freely & dance & move like a gazelle. Just to be healthy again, my daughter is marrying in April & would love to dance at her wedding. Thank you so much for doing this class & being an encouragement & example. Starting my life over on my 60th birthday (January 7th), it’s never too late & I am so grateful to you & the others walking this road together.
Hi, Marina. I am so glad you will be joining us! I am grateful to get to know you. 🙂
Thanks, Adriane. 🙂
I’ve followed TW and even interviewed with JH to be a facilitator several years ago; however, there is a hesitation of surrendering and thus a continual struggle…anyone can can practice the mechanics, but lasting change/freedom/surrender is from the heart…this is where I find myself again…During the next four months, I resolve to focus on the heart issue and leave the rest to the Lord…this,as Michael W. Smith sings, will the the “great adventure.” Thanks Heidi for leading this as I expectantly look for the Lord to speak to me through THIS study.
Susan, I am so glad to hear this. We will be focusing on renewing our minds with some tools. I suggest that you really dive in to these tools that I will be sharing! 🙂
Thank you for offering a free class even if we don’t have the workbooks. I want to join! To stay motivated. Not only will 2014 be my year to lose weight but it will be my year to build my spiritual life as well! 🙂
