More than Weight loss- a healing!!
I was overweight since childhood. I often hid food and ate in secret. I went to food with every emotion. When my Mom died, I had no one to keep me in check and on top if it I missed her so much. I was only 12 years old. I came home everyday from school, watched TV and ate. My weight soared. Going into my teens and early adulthood, I did crash diets. Everything!! I could always lose weight, but would gain it back. Until…someone gave me the Weigh Down Diet Book & by Gwen Shamblin. Then I joined a Weigh Down Class. It was not a diet, but about a relationship with God. Putting it into practice started healing my heart as I learned to turn to God instead of food with stress and pain. I listened to class CDs constantly, which talked about love for God. I waited for hunger and learned to pray. I started to change. I was finally becoming the person I had wanted to be. I was off the couch and living life instead of living through others on TV. I became nicer and sweeter to everyone around me. I truly experienced a healing of body, mind and spirit. I will be forever grateful to Weigh Down. I am still listening to Weigh Down CDs and doing classes. This program taught me true freedom from dieting and how to have a relationship with God. It has been a permanent change. The weight has been of for over 8 yrs!
