I remember topping out at 283 pounds
. I had dieted since childhood. On November 10, 2001, everything changed. It was on that day that I heard a message that would change my life forever--a message of hope, a message of how obedience to God cures all ailments – overweight, depression, anger, pride, idolatry, lust, and projection. Could this be the answer? That day I made the decision to walk down a path that has been my deliverance. I started my journey with a free Rise Above book that was generously given away that day to those who were new to The Weigh Down Workshop. From the moment I began reading the book I knew it was the truth. I couldn't put it down. I immediately got into a class and the weight started falling off. I devoured the homework and couldn't wait for the next class to see another video and hear more truth. This was what I had been looking for my whole life.
As the weight came off, my health improved. Shortly after starting Weigh Down I joined Remnant Fellowship Church where I was surrounded by a body of like-minded believers who were living testimonies to the power of God. I learned how to surrender my will to God’s will and walk in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. I was a new creation. Through the Weigh Down Workshop and Remnant Fellowship Church, God set me free from 150 pounds of overweight, six years of sleeping pills, fits of rage, over shopping, the list goes on and on!
I praise God for this ministry as it has truly saved my life. I cannot believe I get to live this amazing healed life full of love for God and seeking to do His will. Today, I have energy like I have never known and a love for God and others that is inexpressible!!! I praise God for all that he has done and is continuing to do in my life..
