The 10 Things to Know Before Starting the 21-Day Weight Loss, God’s Way Challenge


The Weight Loss, God’s Way Challenge is a Christian online program that challenges your subconscious beliefs about weight loss so you can stop wasting time and money on fads and gimmicks and obtain a healthy weight while strengthening your faith.

This Challenge is the first step of our 3-step Breakthrough system for permanent weight loss. We are sharing it with you for free so you can understand the factors that are hindering your weight loss. Our goal is to help you understand why you do what you do so that you can empower yourself to make permanent change.


If you’re looking for a ‘here’s-what-to-eat-and-what-exercises-to-do’ program, then this might not be for you, at least currently. Our program will take you deeper than the traditional ‘eat-less-move-more’ approach, and show you why many Christian women are subconsciously programmed to fail. There are numerous factors that affect your weight and you’re going to learn them all in this challenge.


Everyday for 21 days, plus a couple of days before and after, you’re going to receive a 5 minute video message from me that contains a lighthearted skit and daily challenge. They will arrive every day at the same time so it’s SUPER IMPORTANT that you get your emails.

To summarize:

1.  Watch the daily videos

2.  Spend some time in prayer

3.  Complete the daily challenge

4.  Hop over to our Facebook Support Group to post your feedback and connect with other women.

If you don’t see your daily email, look in SPAM or JUNK immediately (or other tabs in GMAIL) and move my email to your Inbox, being sure to follow the prompts to tell your email server you want these emails to end up in the Inbox.

Please add me as a safe-sender, star my email, or create a filter that makes them go to your Inbox. Even if you get a few to your Inbox, some may end up in the wrong place and I don’t want you to miss ANY of this content!


After you’ve watched the video and spent some time in prayer, hop over to our private Facebook group to post your feedback, comments, insights, and victories. It’s important to post daily to stay accountable and connected.


To all my fellow perfectionists and control-freaks out there, resist the urge to try to do too much; try to do it perfectly; obsess on weight loss, or try to do it your own way without support and accountability. Trust me, it will not work. Practice taking action steps everyday and learn to master the skill of discipline. Commit to doing every challenge, but if you miss a day, don’t sweat it. Just jump back on board the following day.

Your success will largely depend on your ability to turn this process over to God and trust Him to help you learn new healthy habits to lose weight.


Thousands of people have been blessed by this Challenge and many take it repeatedly. However, it can only work for you if you commit to the process. Leave yourself time daily to watch the video, do the daily challenge, reflect, and post in the group. Personally, I do it right after my morning devotion time because life tends to get super busy after that. The more you participate in the process, and in the group, the more you will benefit from it. If you’re too busy right now and don’t think you will be able to commit the time, then I suggest you wait instead of frustrating yourself by adding one more thing to an already over-packed schedule.


We don’t charge for the basic online Challenge and you’re free to quit at any time. I can’t imagine why you would though :). If you don’t feel you’re being blessed by the daily videos, you can unsubscribe to the emails at any time. Even though we’re providing it free, this program is valued at over $300, so don’t take it for granted. In fact, why not tell someone else about it?


We do our best to convey the daily messages in as entertaining a way as possible. Plus the discussions in the Facebook group can be inspiring and entertaining as well. Have fun, be transparent, and be sure to make some new friends in the group.


To get the most out of the Challenge, purchase our Healthy by Design: Weight Loss, God’s Way book in print or eBook formats. It’s available from Amazon, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Google Play and other major distributors.

In Canada: Amazon, Indigo/Chapters, Kobo

In Australia: Amazon, Kobo, Booktopia

10.  This is Just Step One

We’re offering this program for free so you can understand that losing weight is much more than eating less and exercising more. God wants to transform your entire life. The Challenge is step 1 of a 3-step program to transform your health and your entire life. If the Holy Spirit leads you, take the next step with us.

    I did this challenge in January of this year. I got on a eating program and lost 47 pounds. About 6 to 7 weeks ago I allowed sugar back into my eating plan. Well needless to say I have regained 17 pounds. How is this possible? But this challenge popped up again yesterday. I am going back to what worked for me.And that is this program. I ordered the book, should be here tomorrow. I am thinking of getting a couple ladies together and doing a book study, Cathy you are an inspiration to me and God does use you in a mighty way.Thank you for all that you do for the Lord.

      Wow, congratulations on your success Rachel. I’m so glad that this program has blessed you! Don’t panic, it’s just a set-back and I’m thrilled that you drew a line in the sand before things got ‘out of hand’. Have you considered the Breakthrough Program? It will help you to really get to the root? Prayerfully consider it-

    Good Morning!!! Yesterday I was sitting at my desk in my room talking to Daddy God and I was so upset and frustrated because I can’t seem to stick with eating right and working out. I asked the Lord to help me get to the root cause of why I am unable to stick with a program (I have alot of workout videos) and then I googled some scriptures on losing weight and somehow I stumbled upon your program. I clicked on your video and as I was watching I started to tear up and I said thank you Lord, He had answered me right away!!! I’m so excited to get to the root cause and starting my transformation from the inside out. I’m a single mom of one, I have been taking care of my son by myself for ten years now and I am unable to work right now due to a bad back, so when you said it’s free…. that was a huge blessing to me!! I’m learning to take Communion before my meals and I’m trusting in the Lord’s healing so I can get back to work and live life again. Thank you so much for being such an inspiration and a blessing! Have a wonderful day!! God bless you!!!!

    I know quite a bit about eating right and excercising…I lost 80lbs over 26 years ago. I have kept most of it off…I go up and down 10lbs in the winter season into spring. I have always struggled with binge eating, then starving and on and on, but lately my binge eating has been so out of control.I do know why, My 80 year old Mother is living with us now(dementia), I work 40 hours third shift and those two factors have made my finding time for me so frustrating (not to mention my husband and Church). But I am not without hope and Praise God I came across your videos on You Tube when I typed in losing weight God’s way. I know so well I am powerless without Him. So in a nut shell I am praising God for your putting together this program. I think for me it will be accountability and a reminder to take out some time for me. After all if we don’t care for ourselves how can we care for others. I am praying for the success of all the women willing to take the Challenge, to see themselves through God’s eyes and eat to live for His purposes…as theage old question asks “Are you eating to live or living to eat” Lately I have been eating my weariness and emotions. Thank you again to all involved in this wonderful program. To God be all the glory. In His Love Theresa
