• I used to think that being a Christian meant following a bunch of rules …

    Don’t wear too much makeup.
    Don’t wear that low cut dress.
    Be sure to say, “…, if the Lord wills” after everything I say. […]

  • How many years have you struggled with your weight?
    I was a chubby kid and had to wear husky clothing. I always felt bad about myself and kids are sometimes cruel. But I was active and lost quite a bit of weight […]

    • Marge thanks so much for sharing! I am in the middle of the road from my highest weight to my goal weight (which is 145) I often think I will never get there because I started out too heavy but I can see from your testimony I can achieve that goal – it just takes time. Thanks for sharing.

    • Marge, thanks for sharing your journey with us. It is very encouraging to hear and see your results. “If God be for us, who can be againsat us?” Romans 8:31b

    • Thank you, Marge, for sharing your journey with us! It’s so encouraging! 🙂 🙂

    • Wow Marge, your journey is inspirational and motivational. Thank you so much for your transparency and making it real for me…the good days, the struggles, but the never ending love just as you are today that you get from HIM touched me to the core, thank you.

  • Scripture Reflection
    “In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to re […]

    • In the past those motives were my false motives.Now, although there are certainly days of struggle, I focus on choosing to honor my body as a temple of the Holy Spirit and not go back. When I want to give in or give up, I remember all the grace that God has given to me over this past 1.5 years and the benefits of releasing 110 lbs. I repeat my vision statement and certain scriptures.

    • I LOVE this post. This is exactly what the Holy Spirit has been teaching me. As I was running the other day I remembered the scripture to, “present your bodies as a living sacrifice which is your reasonable act of worship.” And I thought to myself, “Okay God, I am going to give you this run as a sacrifice of praise.” And you know what? I was soaring on wings of eagles! It was amazing!

        Amen Rowena, it’s so much more rewarding when we do it for Him.

  • How long have you been a member and what keeps you coming back?
    I started the 21-Day Challenge on December 28, 2017. Reading the overview, I could see it was not a fad diet or quick loss program. That was […]

    • Thank you for sharing, Cheryl. I can certainly relate to the cycle of gaining and losing weight. Glad we are on this journey together with God’s help who continues to renew our minds and transform us. God bless

    • Great testimony. Thank you for sharing. It helps me to believe this transformation is possible. Congratulations! 😀

    • Cheryl, thank you for sharing your story with us. I too have found my fibromyalgia flares when I consume large amounts of process foods, carbs and sugars. It’s a blessing to be in “community” with others experiencing similar challenges, who are willing to be transparent with one another, pray for each other and rejoice together.

    • What a beautiful testimony! Thank you for sharing.

    Have you ever made up your mind to eat only a few potato chips, or some other snack food, and the next thing you know, the entire bag’s […]

    • I had a snaccident myself and it was chips as well. I have taken ownership and I am holding myself accountable as I learn “why” to my actions. Thank you for sharing

    • The Serenity Prayer is close to my heart. I first heard and learned the shorter form of the Serenity Prayer at a secular 12 step group for the families of alcoholics when my first husband was in rehab. The longer form of the prayer we use regularly at a 12 Steps for Christians meeting I attend now. I believe that prayer literally saved my life in my first marriage. It gave me the ability to keep silent when to speak would have put me in danger of domestic violence. I had a poster of the Serenity Prayer on the back of the toilet door and instead of confronting my drunk husband, I would go to the toilet, sit on the closed toilet seat and repeat the prayer over and over until I was no longer angry or filled with fear. Praise God for the ways He finds to reach each of us. 🙂 🙂

    • This was meant just for me 😢

      You’re welcome Jaana. The more you focus on doing the right things each day,the less you will have to worry about what the scale says.

    • I needed this post today. Was feeling really down about scale!

    • I’ve been following your advice and get on the scale only once a week.

  • It is only by God’s saving grace that I am alive today. And I want to share a bit of the ruins in my life in order to tell you about God’s restoration of me physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and how Wei […]

    • Jo, thank you for sharing your amazing story. You are an inspiration to others on this journey. I could relate to many of the same situations you described. God’s continued blessings to you.

    • Jo,
      Your story is amazing. So much pain and sorrow. Yet, God walked with you through that valley and brought you to high places. Your example is a shining beacon for others. Your journey will be a testament of God’s saving grace. And I believe you ‘found’ WLGW by His grace. Your transformation is awesome. God is good and so is this beautiful affirming Christian program. Thank you for sharing. 💐

    • Wonderful testimony ‘

    • Thank you. I am always inspired by people who stay with it because I usually drop out. I am in Breakthrough right now, not losing weight yet, still being rebellious. I know God has led me to WLGW, so I’ll think of you and try to continue.

    • You are such an inspiration to others. I am where you were. My prayer: that I reach the places you have gone & grow in God’s truths as you have. PTL
      I pray for your continued success & deeper relationship with Jesus Christ our Lord & Savior.💕

    • Jo, thank you for your willingness to share your story and words of encouragement. Yes, To Go be the Glory!

    • Amazing!! Tku for sharing your inspiring story!

    • Jo, Thank you for sharing your story. What a wonderful testimony of God’s grace, and how He can redeem us! And you look happy and healthy on your photo. I’m so glad you found WLGW to help you find your way through this journey! Traveling on with you, Ena 🙂
