21 Days of Progress not Perfection in Him

I highly recommend the 21 Day Challenge to anyone seeking a positive change with God in their lives. I learned to seek God out for the small stuff, the day to day stuff, the emotional stuff. I learned to bury His Word in my heart and to reach for it in times of need. I was motivated to spend time with God to start my day, to exercise and to eat more healthy. It’s progress and not perfection, though I believe He will perfect the good work He has begun in me.

Water of Life

I am finding myself enjoying drinking water and feeling better doing it.
I now reach for the water and tracking how much I drink so that I continue to meet my goal.

WOW

This has been an incredible course. The journey has been awesome. I am so grateful for all the lessons and what it has taught me. I am excited to see the life changes take place in me as I implement what I have learned. It really opened my eyes to discover area’s in my life as to why I do what I do. Making the connection with God and allowing Him to reveal to me my false identities and how I live out of them. I know that is not who I am and He is showing me how to live into what is truth. Who I really am.

I have been a person that takes a class and thinks well it’s done and move on from there. Breakthrough has pulled me around into learning that it is about continually practicing what I have learned so that it becomes a part of me a way of life. How important vision, goal setting, my whys are. There is so much learning in this course, I will be taking the refresher course and revisiting some of the lessons.

Thank your for your dedication to the Lord. For being the voice and teacher of what God has wanted to get to us ladies to be transformed from the inside out. To live a life of victory as Jesus intended for us to live. Healthy and whole!!

My next is to Pray for my health

I am loving how the Lord always speaks to me through His Word

I am finding that as I have been reading through my journey these past few weeks that I see how the Holy Spirit grows us in different ways.
For me it’s been a time of reflection, of learning endurance through a particular trial, and the Lord has been reminding me just how much I am loved by Him once again.

I tried out a new active practice, of stopping to realign and refocus in between tasks in the day, and one very busy day was filled with joy and peace. I am blessed to be learning such skills.
Thank you to all who contribute. I so value the fellowship of this lovely group of sisters. I am truly blessed by you all! I find my heart so full of love.

I am encouraged not to give up. Not to focus on circumstances but on the Lord, who always makes a way.

LeskeyC

This course is full of

This course is full of useful ideas and inspiring prayers. I like the option of the audio files. I listen to them on the go to review what I read earlier. I struggle with taking time to rest so this is a very helpful study for me. I hope to go back and review and also practice the ideas. Deep breathing is really helping me. I also appreciate the reminder to use journaling and prayer to destress. Very practical!

My Journey

I started this program after years of battling my weight and making it my god. While I haven’t released much weight, my heart is changing as well as my choices.

A Call to Faith

I absolutely treasure how Cathy Morenzie sounds the trumpet and calls us back into alignment with God and reflection! And fear not lost sisters in remote worlds, she creatively calls us from SO MANY directions and repeatedly speaks God’s truth into our minds, ❤️‘S and spirits! If it is exercise u dread, the sound will reach u there, if it is meal planning that grips ur heart, there too the notes resound, struggling with ur faith or setting boundaries? Again, the trumpet blast will reach. This last course Rest, Restore and Rejuvenate was an ever so deserved and delightful recess from life’s storms. The fellowship and authentic comraderie was such a comfort.

Karina M.

Refreshment for the body, mind, and spirit

This challenge brought me even closer to God and reminded me how God wants me to obtain peace and calm in the midst of storms, plus the need for daily rest for the refreshment of my body, mind, and spirit.

Mary R.

Rejuvenated

I thoroughly enjoyed this devotional course on Rest, Restored and Rejuvenated as well as the relaxation exercises, several of which I have incorporated into my daily lifestyle. I felt that not only did this course bring me closer to GOD but much closer to rest and peace. It was the daily time with HIM and self reflection that left me feeling serene and ready to tackle the day before me with a renewed sense of HIS presence and quietness about me. LOVED IT!!!!

Cynthia N

Resting In Him

This course, Rest, Restore and Rejuvenate, has been a breath of fresh air. Cathy had said that when we are stressed we release cortisol which keeps us from releasing weight. She said we needed to rest in God and let Him guide our process. I struggled with how to rest in Him. This course was amazing at helping me understand what Resting In Him looked like in the midst of the chaos and stress of life. I am discovering each day the peace of God that restores. I will definitely be taking this course again in the future.

Mary Ann W

This program calmed me and

This program calmed me and filled my life with peace. I was reminded that being busy constantly is not a requirement, but spending time with God is if I want to experience the rest and peace that He offers. I find that many moments in my days feel sacred because I’m so much more aware of giving them to God and living to honor Him. I have written down all the relaxation suggestions on note cards, and have them in my “toolbox” to remind me of ways to relax and realign. This was a fantastic course! I highly recommend it!

Ena G

Amazing Course

I love the devotions and focus for this course. It really helped me to re-align with who I am in Christ and to focus on what is important. I am not completely where I should be with this, but I am definitely improving. Thank you Cathy!

Christy Webster

Resting in Jesus

This lesson has helped me focus on what the Holy Spirit is saying to me. Especially during troubles when I don’t express myself but keep holding things within me and eating but giving difficult situations over to Jesus and leaving them there. I have learned relaxation exercises to incorporate into my daily life. I also have affirmations when things don’t go the way I have planned. Thanks for putting this together.

Lynn A

Resting & abiding in God’s Love!

This daily opportunity to enjoy: a great scripture, message, song & a prayer all focused on an aspect of learning to Rest amidst our daily concerns and responsibilities was effective, impactful and enjoyable! I experienced a greater release of the Peace that God has provided for us already. No need to search for it, when we meet God, accept him, whichever way it can be said, we get his gift of peace and the comforter, Holy Spirit! Learning to live in God’s midst, presence throughout the day releasing greater peace. We can cease striving to be a ‘better’ Christain and learn who we are already in Christ. I sincerely recommend this experience to anyone , we all can benefit. 🙂

Rhonda W.

I have learned so much!

Rest, Restore, and Rejuvenate has been such a blessing! I’ve learned a lot. Thank you!!

Lisa C

Amazing

I was totally blessed by this challenge I’ve understood that resting in my Savior arms is the best rest that I can get. Always remembering this fact will keep me focused on His purpose for my life. God bless Cathy and all who made this challenge possible. Many, thanks.

LuzG

Loved It!

The RRR series was a breath of fresh air! It really helped me with remembering to take some deep breathes and to put on my headphones while at work. Life gets busy but we can stop, reflect and even enjoy our day amidst the chaos.

Jaana C

Just finished the 21 day

Just finished the 21 day Challenge. It was definitely eye opening and I am excited to start the Breakthrough class. I’m excited to see what God has in store for me in the next phase.

Debbie S

RRR Class was Fruitful

I wish to thank the team that created and presented the RRR class. This class guided me through many verses of the Word and led me to consider how when I seek God He does give me rest and takes my yoke and stress upon Himself.

I recommend the time in this study to anyone who is feeling overwhelmed and stressed and finding it hard to slow down and rest in Him.

Many Blessings,
Luann C

Luann C

Awesome program!!!!

These 21 days have been awesome and even though I did not follow everything I followed what I needed and still kept what I didn’t need because I will need them in another season of my life. It was well worth the daily lessons which were great, the music videos were awesome, the prayers, questions for reflection, and the devotion were so on target for each lesson.

WLGW has been quite instrumental in my life for such a time as this and I’m so thankful and grateful to God for leading me to it because it was truly Him and not me. I had the saying ‘Been there did that!” and this was nothing like anything I had ever done! THANK YOU JESUS!!!

Blessings to the WLGW founder, Cathy and the team thank you all for making this an honor and a privilege to be a part of!!

Jamila H.

A balm to my soul

I started this plan just as my school was beginning and I knew I would need reminders to restore myself. Sadly, I let the days fall away as I got busy and overwhelmed. On a day when I was feeling especially downtrodden and weary, I went back into the program and found the last day I had completed and started up again. God, in His infinite wisdom, reconnected me to the truths that He has for me and my life. I had been getting caught up in the hustle and worry of this earthly world and He showed me what matters most for eternity. Thank you Cathy for this program and thank you Jesus for guiding me to it.

Kim T

Finding Peace

Wow this study is one of the best that I have taken. Thank you Cathy for letting the Holy Spirit guide you!

I have learned that true rest is having God’s peace. But the only way to have God’s peace is to ask him into every aspect of my life.

Debbie S

Exercise of a different kind

It was nice to do a challenge that addressed what we women so often ignore – restoration.

Donna R

This is something I will

This is something I will come to again and again My eyes and heart have been opened to receive the joy and peace God is waiting to give me

Sandra Batten

Such a blessing!

This 21 day course has been such a blessing in more ways than just the number on the scale, or my clothing fitting looser. It has encouraged my walk with Jesus, getting closer to God and listening to the Holy Spirit, which has been so important to me. Thank you Lord for leading me to this program and thank you Cathy for all of your hard work put into this program to help fellow Christians. God Bless!

Tanya

Exercising in Faith

I am excited about re-framing how I think about exercise. I am going to think of it as movement in faith, a step in the right direction to having a healthier temple for honoring and glorifying Him.

I am going to continue to exercise in the mornings for 30 minutes and build up from there. I will add in muscular/strength with free weights. I will also add more movement breaks throughout the day.

Let’s get going, in Him, having fun and worshiping Him while exercising.

Luann C

Eating Healthy Plan

I am pleased to share that some of the healthy eating information I already knew and was following. I will read/review this information and work toward making it natural and easy to consider as I plan my meals. I had no idea of the recommended carbs, protein and fat for each day. I will work to get a good handle on these recommendations.

I want permanent change in this journey with the outcome being a lifetime of health and glory to God with my body, His temple.

Luann C

Realizing what’s truly important to God

I just want to take time to thank the Lord for allowing me to stumble upon this program. I have truly enjoyed the 21 day challenge. It was exciting every day to get to open a new skit say a prayer and to learn something about myself that I didn’t realize. I still struggle and that’s OK. I’m not a quitter my strength has to come from God and not for myself. I’m learning I’m more than just a number on the scale to God. I’m learning that every day is a challenge so bring it on …i’m ready for a …. BREAK THROUGH
🐛🦋💙

Losing Weight God’s Way

I am becoming the person God created me to be. Thank You Jesus. Forty days ago I started the BREAKTHROUGH lessons. Thank you Father for the opportunity to take these lessons. During these 40 days, Holy Spirit you have shown me so much about myself. Breakthrough comes when I am in alignment with you God. In-
Christ and For-Christ and Through- Christ; stronholds are broken. Old bad habits have been broken and replaced by new good habits. I have confidence that in the days to come, In-Christ I can remain in His care because He loves me. I crave Him more than I do food. He give me Love, Joy and Peace. I am ever gratefull for the Losing Weight God’s Way Program, thank you Cathy for being obedient to your calling. Colossiansa 1:16 Says: “for everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible…everything got started in Him and finds its purpose in Him. God you are an awesome God!

A New life

We are new creatures in the Lord and WLGW helped me see myself the way God sees me. This 21 day plan helped me open my eyes to the promises of the Lord. I have just begun on the journey to healthy living again. Im enjoying my mornings and time with the Lord. Food is not my go to thing or focus. I can use the tools of the program to review my thoughts and feelings stand on the promises, instead of eat about them. WLGW has started me on the path of having my life in balance. Thank you Lord for leading me to WLGW and Cathy!!

Fe G

I thought I knew what

I thought I knew what to do but the world seems to complicate things with too much information
I love this step by step information and I don’t feel so over whelmed

Pamela Eckert

Moving Forward

I am so grateful that God brings us the right things at the right time. This course is just what I needed to help me move into making exercise a part of my everyday life. It has shown me that it can be simple and slow starting. I have always thought that you have to jump in head first and give it all you got. No pain no gain or for me it was um pain and stop doing. Finding that I was miserable of course until I started WLGW. So different. I love how Cathy breaks it down. Start slow and build on it. Do what you can do. Like she said if you can only do 1 pushup or whatever it might be. Just start somewhere and move forward. Find what you like doing a real eye, heart opener for me. Keeping it simple and keep track so you can see your progress. I find that I have an excitement within that I haven’t had very often in life about exercise. I like the statement about changing your attitude and the 10 ways you can choose to do to change. I have already stopped speaking negative things about exercise, changing my words to positive confessions. I invite the Lord into my workouts actually I see it as our workouts together. And I love dancing in worship with and unto Him. Finding order in the healthy living God intended for me have.

Andrea W.

So thankful!

So thankful for the 21 day challenge and excited for next steps in the program. Learning to lean on God in this journey and so thankful for new insight and perspective!

This course was a good

This course was a good reminder of what I have learned before. I needed to refresh my memory and make a plan. I especially feel that I need to keep better track of my macros and timing of meals.

Lee Ann H

How Did It Go So Fast???

These last 40 days I have learned so very much about me as a person and as well I have learned how to allow God to reverse those things that have held me back and replace them with Him. These 40 days have been awesome as well as the 21 day challenge that led me to Breakthrough. I have been amazed at the things I have not thought of or have been in denial about. And it was those things that the Lord sent me to WLGW to learn os that I can stop going around the same mountain. I have Him to get me on track and keep me on track. And, even though I have not loss any weight I only gained one pound and with the tools that I have now and those that I will learn with the next step “Faith In Action” I know that I will lose the weight needed and through Christ I will get there and it will be painlessly.

Thank you Lord for placing me in WLGW to really learn the right way to release the weight and that is only through you with the tools that I have been taught.

Blessings to Cathy as you continue to do His will in the earth!!

Taking Steps

Sometimes the smallest of steps are the biggest ones to take. Taking one thought at a time into captivity. It’s made a difference in how I view things and myself. I enjoyed this study.

Grateful

I want to thank my Lord Jesus Christ for helping me throughout this 21 day journey. I also want to thank sister Cathy for her dedication in helping women like me. In my 21 day challenge I was able to understand how to eat more wisely. I learned how to think before I put food in my mouth. Additionally, what foods will help me stay healthy and strong as I continue to age. Thanks Sister Cathy and God bless you and your staff always!

LuzG

Release!

Being with these women in this group, learning about myself and letting God change and strengthen me from the inside out has been an incredible experience. Not only have I shedded pounds, I have released past baggage that was holding me down. I know this is just the beginning of my growth and internal and external release. Thank you!

Jen Miller

Things have changed!

Things have changed! This change thing is the overriding thing, and it’s good change. I have a vision, an end goal and interim goals, whereas previously I had a fuzzy idea consisting only of a final weight target and roughly what clothing size I wanted to be.
I have gone from being overwhelmed to knowing that God’s got this. I have gone from trying to do it in my own strength to finding that the only way is through God’s strength and this transfers to many areas of my life.
I have learned skills to help me make right food choices, to not let food rule. With the help of the Holy Spirit to be the ruler over food.
I have learned skills to plan in advance and skills to help me stop at the moment of decision, in order to make the right decision.
I have gone from wanting to give up when it’s seemed too difficult to go on, to learning that it’s possible to keep on keeping on. I have learned to stop, evaluate and cry out to God to help me rule over my flesh in the times when it’s really hard.
The Lord is developing a spirit of perseverence in me. I have gone from giving in easily to temptation, to being determined to ‘fight the good fight’ of faith. What is impossible for man, is possible with God!
I have been learning skills to consistently stick to a challenge, and with the Lord’s help, I’m consistently exercising more, logging food and fasting intermittently, and most importantly, spending time with Him in His Word, and listening to obey. Actually, I’ve discovered the joy of exercising! Hah!!
I have learned it takes time, and to be patient but to stick at it because, as I am finding out, progress does happen over time, if you just don’t give up!
I have learned to be honest when things aren’t going well, and to reach out for help.
I am experiencing real transformation, in the way I think, act, keep my commitments and take responsibility for what I do and say.
Practically, so far, I’ve lost 5 inches on my belt, and more around my hips, and my knees no longer hurt. I have more range with my arms and can reach the middle of my back, and reach my toes. I no longer suffer from sciatica, my blood pressure is down, I was not recalled for my last cholesterol results! I have more stamina and more breath to sing with and have increased joy in life. No matter how hard life is, and we all know we have hard times, I am learning the skills to rise above, to be seated in heavenly places with Jesus, and in faith to overcome. I am of course a work in progress, and I’m sure there’s more, but I am on The Way with Jesus! Amen!! Hallelujah!

LesleyC

Excellent Bible study on key Christian virtues

I so appreciated the time this past 40 days learning more about virtues such as excellence and sacrifice. Cathy challenged me to look for more in my life and to not be satisfied with giving God just a mediocre commitment.

Darla S

By HIs grace

Wow. I’m just beginning to understand how to walk and talk with God about this area of my life. Lots of learning and unlearning. Shifting my focus from the scale and jumping on it every day to patiently waiting and working with God on my limiting beliefs and His will. Very emotional journey. Thank you for the privilege of being part of WLGW.

Carol R

Again a favorite – Faith in Action

With each of these studies I feel sad they come to the end, but how much I get out of them is pure joy and thankfulness.
This study was not easy, but I have grown closer with my Heavenly Father, for that I am so thankful.
All the time and effort that Cathy, Preston and their staff put in planning these for us I know is a lot of work. I so appreciate them.

Until the next study.

Donnie G

Grace so sufficient

Still on the journey. No turning back by His grace assisting me. I know I can make it for He is with me. My mind is where most of the lesson has been learnt. Also I know I am not alone. Seeds have been sown. My intermittent fasting, exercise daily and tracking are habits I do. Running to Father with this part of my life knowing He cares. Lol. Wow. He cares. Nothing is too small. Priorities have changed. It used to be all about the weight and although this is still important I know that His time line is the perfect one. Praise God. I know this is so many areas of my life now I am applying this to my weight. I am looking forward to more of what Father wants to teach me. Thank you Cathy and your team. Every blessing.

Carol R

I’m so thankful for the 21-Day Challenge!

God opened a door for me with this Challenge. It allowed me to see my life-long struggle with being overweight from a whole new perspective. It’s not just what I eat or don’t eat that is the problem, it’s why I do what I do, what is driving me to repeat patterns of poor eating. I am so thankful for Cathy and for this course! Looking forward to what is ahead in the next course!

Susan D.

Closer to God

Through this program I have matured in my faith by realizing that I have to take care of myself. It’s not wrong to put aside time to make sure that I am healthy. I am so blessed to have found WLGW!

Mary P

This was a good reminder,

This was a good reminder, with scripture study, but not as many practical applications as the other courses I have completed.

Jimi P

Right in the middle–for the last 10 years!

My daughter and I have been exercising together at the gym for the last 10 years or so. We were extremely overweight. I was at 265 and she was at 340. We always joked that we were the healthiest fat girls at the gym. Well I went through a small transformation with the help of the 21 day program and weight watchers and my daughter had surgery and went through a similar experience. Now I’m down to 223 and she’s down to 187!!!! We just really started taking the gym stuff seriously. But I’ve been on what I call the sliding scale and found WW was not what I needed. I have to get it right with God. I have to let the Holy Spirit have complete (instead of partial) control. Every day now my prayer is that the HS guide me in each step. That I learn to breathe and hand my anxieties over to God. Won’t you please pray for me too?

Thank you!

Raymonda K

Habits

Why are habits hard to make and easy to break😧

Marnie Grimes

Godsend

This program is an answer to prayer. I have been struggling for some time. I prayed for God to help me. He kept telling me this was a spiritual matter but I still struggled. Then this program came along. So far it has helped me think about all the things that are getting in my way. It is also helping me to look at food, weight, exercise, etc. from a biblical perspective. The encouragement, prayer and accountability have been beyond measure. I can’t wait to see what God does next. I know it will be hard but I know it will be good because He is in the middle of it all.

Mary Ann Winstead

Exercise

Looking forward to starting small and not expecting to run a marathon or do intense workouts. I love the grace of this program!

I am looking forward to taking time for me and trying some new forms of exercise.

the beginning of a new me

i am 48 and approximately 35 pounds heavier than i should be and would like to be. Right now the 5am to 8pm schedule that i have 5 out of 7 days a week is my biggest wall because when i get home i don’t want to do anything but sit on a couch and watch tv. this program, while i did not get through 21 days in 21 days, is the start of a new me

Michele T

Game Changer

The 21 day course HAS BEEN A GAME CHANGER for me. God is so cool. He brought me to it at the right time. It brought together all the things He has been showing me and speaking to me over the course of what seems to be a life time. I was never able to pull it all together. I didn’t know how. It has taught me so much about me. It brought wisdom and knowledge shedding light on truths opening my understanding deepening my relationship with Him. Learning to release the weight to God instead of me trying to do it in my own strength and way. Letting go of that control, to let the Holy Spirit lead me. It also confirmed the things that I had implemented prior to joining WLGW were from Him. How that tickled my heart! It shows me how much He loves and cares about me and others. I don’t have enough words to express how grateful I am! He is teaching and leading me into a whole new way of living. Let your light shine and be a testimony to others without speaking words! I am excited to start the next course Breakthrough! Thank you God! And Cathy for being a yielded vessel that He works through. You were the splash and we are the ripple effects that I pray will never cease but to continue to touch and change the lives of other women.

Andrea W

Restart

When I found WLGW..I had already lost 60 pounds over the last year and half…I was at a Plateau and so very frustrated I just wanted to quit ….on u version I did the devotional and that encouraged me…after joining one of the free webinars I knew this was the next step to my success…I love that it is truly Word center…so here I am 21 days later feeling like with God’s help all things are possible and I will lose 20 more pounds and one I will have a testimony that exercise is fun🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️

Rosemarie C

Led by God

I have felt from the beginning that God has led me to WLGW and He is with me on this journey – a journey not only to release pounds and poor health habits, but to release to Him anger, resentment, disappointment, and control. I thank God for Cathy and her heart open to the Holy Spirit using her in this way. Her gifts are our blessing! I am now 3 months into my journey with WLGW and have released 26.5 pounds. With God, all things are possible!

Diane O.

Awesome Module!

This module has brought things to the surface and I am so grateful to God and Cathy. Thank you for the great tools and encouragement to press on towards the goal. Looking forward to more!

Sandra H

Faith Not Food

I am gaining a real understanding that it’s FAITH, not food, that I am really craving. God made us to crave Him and not food. Bad Habits, mindsets, & unbelief is now being replaced by His grace, love & power. I am experiencing His presence in ways I have never experienced before in not only the physical but the spiritual. He is changing me from the inside out. Oh what a wonderful journey this Weight Loss God’s Way is. I am becoming the person He created me to be, I believe this with all my heart. My heart has found a new home; in Jesus.

God may you receive all the Glory as I continue this journey with You.

REST🙌🏻💜

This course has been a dear blessing as it’s drawn my eyes to the Lord in beautiful reminders of His promises, His strength and His care for me! I’ve loved spending time resting in His peace, surrendering and receiving in His faithfulness and His fortitude!

Candace W

Healthy Eating

This course has reminded me how out of balance I am. Reign in bad fats add good fats. Watching for hidden carbs but still ensuring I add carbs. Proteins fiber and water oh my ! Writing menus out definitely helps me have more control over my nutritional needs

Sandra Batten

Yes! More Water Please!

Great little refresher course on the benefits of making it a daily prioritiy to drink enough water for your body weight!! I’ve been doing this for several years now and it’s one daily habit that is simple, yet it makes such a noticeable impact on how I feel, mental clarity, digestion and more! If it’s not one of your daily priorities, I challenge you to take the course and learn a bit more about why it should be! You will be so blessed to have done so!

Candace W

To God be the glory!

I asked the Lord to direct me in HIS will for a program to guide me in healthful eating and weight loss. I found this program after doing Cathy’s devotional on my bible app, You Version.
This program engages the body, mind and spirit to be healthy and as a bi- product so to speak I have also lost 11 pounds since I’ve started WLGW.
I just signed up for breakthrough and it sounds like it will be going deeper into using God’s Word to healing our spirit and refocusing our mind on HIS TRUTH. ONLY God’s sovereign Words can heal us and direct us to win in this battlefield!
I’m giving God the glory for Cathy and the team! I am also praying for Gods provision and protection as you do the work He has called you to do!

Janice Szoradi

I have lost close to

I have lost close to 5 pounds during this 21 day challenge but that’s not the most important thing. The most important thing is I’m letting go of depending on myself and relying on God during this journey of becoming healthy. I’ve become more aware of how food affects me and what triggers I have that had led me to depend on food rather than God. That could not have happened without this challenge.

Sue P

What a great challenge!!

I loved the daily videos, devotionals, prayers, affirmations, worship songs and workouts!! I tried to pick one teaching video that impacted me the most but I really just loved them all!🤷🏼‍♀️🤩❤️! I thought they were such a fun way to connect to the daily focus and all so relevant and rich!! I could relate to the challenge each day in one way or another which actually helped me realize that “I’m not the only one”!! Just knowing that these struggles are common helped me normalize my journey and not feel so alone! I really loved being reminded about speaking daily positive affirmations, declarations of God’s truth, over myself with the authority I have as a daughter of THE King!🙌🏻👸💜 I’ve been doing that daily and it’s been such a blessing and encouragement for me!! Also, having the opportunity to encourage others has really been a joy and a blessing! It has helped me feel connected to my sisters on this journey in a beautiful way!!
I’m learning to yield my health journey to God! To be willing and aware! To make it about Him and my relationship with Him – not about perfectionism, numbers or one more thing on my to do list! I will enjoy connecting with Him and including Him in every aspect of my health journey, mind, body and spirit! I will live out my love for him and others, including myself, as I actively love thru my healthy living and exercise!! 🙌🏻

Great journey! Thank you Cathy Morenzie and Mary Ryan for leading us thru it!!

Purpose

I found the 21 Day Challenge to be amazing. I became focused on myself instead of other things. I am reminded that my body is a temples and my healthy body is a testament. I have challenges but I focus on the goal.

Tamela. W

“I Never Would Have Thought…..”

What I never would have thought is that these 21 days would have been so awesomely refreshing, putting me where I needed to be with each video skit and each song before each lesson. I never would have thought that it would be the eyeopener I needed and have needed but God’s timing is always prefect and this was His perfect timing for me!! I never would have thought that I could make a commitment and stick to it no matter what! I never would have thought I would have found a support group of Christian women who are there for each other along this journey! The biggest thing I never would have thought that I would feel so connected to God via this 21 day challenge and that it would allow me to be transparent and not feel shamed. I never would have thought that Cathy someone younger than i could have something through God so powerful for young and seasoned women. I bless God for this being my time to take the 21 day challenge and even though I have signed up to move forward with Breakthrough only God knows how long He will have me on the program and for however long I will always give Him the Glory, Honor and Praise for sure a time as this in my life to be closer to Him and wanting more of Him for real!! Thank you Cathy and may God continue to use you for His glory because nothing is ever about us but ALL about Him and who He is!! Blessings to all the sisters on the journey!!

It’s real

Wow from finding out I have been blindly coasting through life to realizing it’s ok if I’m not perfect. God loves that I am trying to be healthier. And to think this is just the beginning. I am so thankful God has led me on this journey

Freedom

Progress, not perfection is a gigantic mindset change for me. I thank God for His faithfulness and truths that are the same yesterday, today and forever. I did not complete the program in 40 days, but God brought me back to complete it. I appreciate that Cathy encourages throughout the program that if we are behind it’s ok. Freedom in Christ, unconditional love, no condemnation. Jesus is healer. This program presents Spiritual truths and principles, using the progress principle – it’s a slow and steady structure that helps get our daily bread. I am continuing to the Breakthrough course!! For me, the years are flying by, and for years, I find myself at the end of each year – another year gone by and I’m still trapped, to my dismay. But in 2019, I started with WLGW, and the year is not yet half over, and I believe this will be my breakthrough year. God is doing gigantic healing in me – just what this program teaches, we can’t out perform or out diet self perceptions – so true for me!!! But as God rewires us/me in my brain, and changes self perceptions, and gives me Grace to receive my identity in Christ, I walk in victory – in freedom – in my destiny, what HE planned for my life before the foundations of the world. Oh rejoice!! Hallelujah!!

My name is Janese B and I finished the 21 Day Challenge! I am really learned a lot and know that I have so much more to learn. I know this journey will not be easy, but I feel that I already have a different relationship with my Heavenly Father. I find it much easier to talk to Him about my successes and not so successful things! I can feel Him all throughout my day. I am really trying to handing my life over to God it feels so good. Now I am on to Breakthrough Part 1! Please keep me in your prayers as I pray for all of you, my sisters, in this journey!

I love this 21 day challenge and this program. I am excited at what God has in store for me as I go through the next course Break Through
This 21 day challenge gave me a lot to think about and addressed everything that I struggle with as it relates to food and exercise. Actually a lot of what was addressed I can apply to other areas of my life. Love the video they are right on point and funny. Thank you!
I just signed up to do the 21 day challenge again on fab live group.

Faith, new habits and community

In my mind, the stand apart feature of WLGW is bringing the weight loss journey together as part of the faith journey. The devotional content is spirit inspired and spot on, leading me to deeper reflection, much enriched by the daily sharing on the Facebook page. The encouragement to establish new habits and the reminder that resistance to change is a normal part of the process are great and foster perseverance where I have previously become disenchanted and discouraged and given up. Daily connection with my sisters has been a vital part of the course, building relationships which help the process with loving mutual support, honest sharing and caring. We are meant to do life together and the interaction with my sisters is a wonderful adjunct to the lessons and health habits focus. Holistic and transformative.

The reward of Exercise

This regular exercise thing has been a long time coming and the past few years have been a series of the step by step of putting new things into my life.

I made/make – it’s a happening thing – a decision to commit to a regular slot for exercise before the Lord, and I have found that my attitude is changing and I’m finding a new positivity. My legs are a lot stronger, and my knees in particular have strengthened up and are not hurting nearly so much! I think, partly because I am carrying less weight, but also the strengthening of my muscles. This particular course has helped me not only change my attitude, but has also given me some tools to help me do it!

One of them is the wonderful accountability factor of how wlgw works in the groups, and the other new thing for me was to think about rewarding myself when I make a goal. I also learned through this particular course that I need to have short term goals – bite size goals if you like – so that I can actually achieve them. A few weeks, a week or even a day planned out! So thankful to God for this, and ever thankful to Cathy and the wlgw team!

LesleyC

In the name of The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

This is what has been missing; focusing on where I am not being faithful and trying to change one day at a time. I realized that I was not being obedient to God because He kept telling me “record what you eat on the Fitbit app.” But I was so resistant to this advice. Now I have been more consistent because while listening to Gods word on one of my morning walks I heard “to obey is better than sacrifice”. This time I listened with my heart and I understand that is what I need to do for now. I am listening to God speak to me through His word.

Dig Deeper

Just finished Rise Up, a fun and motivating place to start ur health recovery journey with God and His most anointed Health Coach Cathy Morenzie. Breakthrough, especially the dynamic Live version, is an insightful and rich place to go next to dive much deeper into the challenges that hold us back.

The pic I am posting below is an example of a Breakthrough. Nearly 65 mile bike ride for my 65th birthday. Dared to take the first step, trusted God, overcame fears and limiting beliefs, did the best that I could, and TOTALLY loved the journey in God’s creation!

Karina M.

Anointed Leader

I don’t even remember how I happened to find Cathy Morenzie but I know God directed me to her. As a Wellness Coach, Group Fitness Instructor and Petsonal Trainer I have found the most anointed professional to lead me by example into the Truth of what God wants for our body, our soul (MIND, will and emotions) and Spirit. Cathy generously pours out her multiple talents over her members, and excels at creating a community, and a team to support her and the ”band of sisters”. And ohhhh the transformation goes SO much deeper than “Just” physical, though that in itself is a lifetime achievement for many. The fun filled, profoundly honest and real, exquisitely diverse, anointed healing is an experience that will richly bless EVERYONE.

Cheers to ur health God’s way!

Stop and think

I have studied exercise and nutrition for over 35 years on and off. I have a lot of knowledge. But to apply it consistently and for the right reasons has been tough. I like this approach of having to take it apart bit by bit and ensure success at each point. Create habits, know why and for whom you’re are trying to get healthy (to be His glory and masterpiece) are great places to start.

Donna R

What an Awesome Breakthrough!

I am so thankful for the WLGW program! Breakthrough is hard work. I tried it on my own last year and couldn’t complete it. I tried the LIVE version this year and fell behind, or what I thought was behind. But Cathy said in her video that “You are not behind, you are exactly where you need to be.” I once heard at my sons graduation ceremony during one of his teachers speeches that he had four different types of Blueberry bushes in his backyard and they all produced blossoms and fruit at different times and that’s how we are too. We all blossom and grow at different rates. Maybe you need a week to complete a lesson not because you are lazy but because that’s how long God needs to spend with you on that particular lesson. God revealed so much to me about myself throughout this program. Give Breakthrough a try, you won’t be disappointed!

Jaana S

Love this group!!!

I haven’t found anything quite like this in all the years I have been struggling with my weight. Cathy and her group are fabulous and have real solutions to help with weight loss and getting healthy. There are no pills and magic potions just love, encouragement and Jesus!!!!!

Neisha N

Energizing!

The combination of women and the beautiful interactions, the fun and sometimes funny mini-challenges added to the rich daily devotions and of course the vast choices of exercise videos made this such a rich, vibrant challenge!! I was truly sad to see it end. But even more so was shocked on the last Thursday FB live meeting when Cathy said we only had 4 days left?. I was having so much fun- i didn’t even realize that!

What a spiritually and physically productive experience! Might I add…”Incredible”!!

Breakthrough has guided me to

Breakthrough has guided me to dig deeper into understanding my core fears, taught me how to rid myself of the lies, and taught me how to strive towards living in alignment with who God says I am as His child.

Mary R.

Loved it

I really enjoyed this challenge because I enjoy exercising. The first week was great I exercised everyday, which I don’t normally. Second week was very challenging & a struggle to exercise everyday but I remembered from another challenge that it is not always going to be plain sailing, but you will have your ups & downs, good & bad days. So I will not give up but continue trying to exercise daily with the help & strength of the Lord until it becomes habit.
I also enjoyed sharing in the FB group daily & coming together with the other sisters as it was very encouraging.
Thank you Cathy for WLGW.

Sarah P

Success not survival

This was my second challenge and I must say I am going to become a member because of a few things:
I thought I could be successful going it alone with the tools Cathy had given me, but I was wrong. I know I need the accountability and the encouragement especially on emotionally challenging days. Secondly, the structure is managable since it is online and I can do the workouts at home.
The teaching is good and practical, not promising quick fixes or miracle cures, but a closer walk with Jesus while getting healthy and creating routines that stick.
I look forward to going deeper.

Donna R

Fun and Insightful!!!

This was such a fun challenge! I enjoyed the devotions & learning about making/breaking habits. I enjoyed the daily interaction with the other challenge members. It really inspired and motivated me past my feelings. I also had several ‘Ah-ha!’ moments during this challenge as I learned more truth about exercise.

Melanie G

Rise Up Challenge

I so enjoyed this challenge. It got me up and moving for the Lord. I feel better and although I’m finished with the challenge, I am not finished with my health journey. I believe that God lead me to the WLGW program and that he will use me to do great things. I’m so excited to see what else He has in store for me through this program.

Christina W

The Get Active Course (Rise

The Get Active Course (Rise Up Challenge) has really helped me to see how important it is to care for myself physically! I have already lost weight through Weight Loss God’s Way, and have grown spiritually, but being active consistently was my weak area. My body feels stronger and I feel the impetus to keep moving! Cathy’s videos are great to use for my at home activity. Thanks Cathy!

Ena Gunnink

Rise Up!

The Rise Up Challenge was such a breath of fresh air. It was so much fun with the competitiveness of all the sisters. I’ve always worked out five days a week but I worked out seven day a week during the challenge. During the challenge I started to crave working out, getting my steps and activity minutes in each day. It was such a motivating challenge!

Jaana C

Great kick start

What a great way to start moving more and utilizing the Word of God to undergird the effort. It’s a great one-two punch broken down into bite size pieces, which makes it an excellent choice for newbies but challenging to those who are more fit. The Facebook group support makes a huge difference too. I loved this Challenge &
I’m sad to see it come to an end. I’m looking forward to the next one!

A Changing Mindset

This 21 day Rise Up Challenge has caused me to re-evaluate my attitude toward exercise. Maintaining consistent habits with exercise has long been a recurring problem for me.

I have, for a long time tended to have the “all-or-nothing” approach to weight loss and exercise. This challenge has helped me to see that all movement and exercise is important for health and fitness, and that 15 minutes a day is good and I need not be ashamed (as I so often have in the past) that I didn’t, or couldn’t, do 30-60 minutes. Being given the choice of three different levels of activity to commit to each day helped me to be realistic and I committed to 15 minutes. Having the daily workouts planned out for me was a great help. For the first two weeks I stuck to the 15 minute commitment and found that with my current energy levels it was perfect. However in the last week it was as if my body was telling me I could take things up a notch and so for the last week I did 30 minutes daily. I can see progress and also have the motivation to keep going.

It was also really good to have the daily devotions and it was impressed on me most how I desire for exercise to become a natural part of my daily worship to the Lord. I have made a couple of playlists of worship songs on my phone and when I exercise I begin in prayer and as I am moving I listen to the words and use them in prayer too and if I have enough breath I even sing along at times! I have also been typing up helpful scriptures to help me keep focused on worship and have them up on the wall in the room where I workout. All of this is a changing in mindset and doesn’t come easily yet; but it is something that I am putting into practice.

I have realized too during this time that I enjoy 21 day cycles. 21 days is a good goal to aim for and seems manageable; It is not too short and not too long. I will challenge myself to focus on the next 21 days now, and when I finish that I’ll go on to the next, then the next and so on. This challenge has been a great starting point to encourage me in the right direction to building up lifelong change in my lifestyle habits and mindset.

Thank you!

Felicity B

Fantastic study

Very good study, to get you moving. Even if exercise is not for you, give it a try. That was me, walking I do, but Cathy has a gift, and yes found myself doing her video’s. Most important are the daily studies, on good health and our spiritual journey. So happy I took this study. Looking forward to next one, the input from all the other sister’s helps so much. Some days tired and when I read all the good comments it had be up and moving. The name RisE Up will stay with me.

Donnie G

Love this challenge

I have done several WLGW Challenges now and they have been life changing. They focus on keeping your focus on God – which should always be our #1. I tried everything before to be disciplined and exercise and change. Everything except putting God in charge. That was what was missing.

This Rise Up challenge has keep me moving and pushing forward. I’m so thankful that i became a member of this group. I NEED it in my life!

After this challenge, i will continue to have my daily devotions and prayer time. I will continue to schedule my workouts and track my success. I have continually increased my amount of walking over the last 30 days. After i overcome my 40 day trial period, i will pray about what comes next and i will slowly add more to my workouts. I will also start the clean eating portion of my life change to improve my health and honor Jesus with the body he has graciously given me.

I am thankful for Cathy and this WLGW group!! You have helped me so much in this journey and i look forward to what’s next!!

This was a fun and

This was a fun and motivating course. Great workout videos and lots of encouragement along the way!

Great motivation

The overall challenge was great. I have more of an exercise routine now so mission accomplished.

Dee

Great Jump Start and Redirection for Getting Active!

I was very discouraged when I started this journey as I had hit a huge resistance in my quest for better health. This course was just the ticket that I needed to get headed in the right direction again. Did I do everything perfectly? NO, but with grace and help from this course, I was able to start on the path to more movement in my life both physically and spiritually. What a blessing!

Muriel W

Recalculating

Wow! This was a great first step/introduction to transforming my walk with Jesus. The Holy Spirit has helped me to recalculate my trajectory. My life/heart lately have been ‘recalculating’ from so many deviations from His plan/abundant life for me. ‘Recalculating’ has been my motto and yes, it can be irritating hearing RECALCULATING! daily, but it’s there to lead me in the right direction that God has plotted out for me. The 21 Day Challenge was the first way point of my journey. I liked that this was more about reflecting and realizing our behaviors and patterns. I felt it went at a good pace and did not feel overwhelmed to DO a lot right now, but to ponder. I did not lose any weight, but gained the readiness I needed to move to the next way point. I look forward to going deeper with the Breakthrough Step 2 Course. I’ve already signed up. I loved the videos/lessons and found they hit home every time. I also felt like Cathy had a hidden camera in my home and I was watching/listening to myself in every one of them!

Sandra

God has led me here

I feel like God has been using the past few months of prayer time to lead me to WLGW. I’ve known in my head that I have all the tools to live and eat healthfully, and I know all the reasons I should eat healthfully. God has gifted me with a series of ‘epiphanies’ that showed me I need an interior transformation – I did a Google search, and here I am. Seven pounds lighter for having completed the 21-Day Challenge and so much more aware of all that I need to release to God, not counting the weight!
I am thankful to Cathy for being open to God yo use her in this way and I pray for all the WLGW participants (me included!) to grow in their ‘heart knowledge of how intimately they are loved by Jesus!

Diane O.

Eye Opening

This 21-day challenge has truly opened my eyes and pulled the covers off my weight issues. I realized that I pray and give God other areas of my life and pray for Him to help me but I’ve never honestly give my desire and need to lose weight to Him! Why?? I saw the habits I’ve developed over the years and could identify with the Dream Robbers as if Cathy was talking directly to me! I didn’t lose much weight in these 21 days but I learned so much about myself and the root of my issues regarding food. So I’m encouraged that going forward as I make some more changes to my actual food choices consistently I’ll have success. I’m confident that I’ll release the weight as I’ve layered a strong foundation. Thanks Cathy!

GC

Transformational

I had to take my time and meditate on the modules, some for a week or so. There’s so much to gain from the webinars and I really appreciated this course. I plan to go through the modules again because it will take some practice for me to unlearn the my current unproductive way of thinking. I will focus on giving honor to God in EVERYTHING I do.

Deidre (Dee)

Closer to God & Breaking Through

This was a good and tough course – tough in the good way! I was stretched and challenged all in a good way. It was revealing as well, and the end result was growth! I identified some of the reasons why I’ve been stuck for a long time so I am praising the Lord for the progress.

This fundamentally changed my prayer and devotional life, but not only that, it has helped me to actually look at the resistance in my life to doing what I know I should be doing and finding ways through! Praise the Lord!

I am learning to stop, give myself Grace, and seek God in my moments of struggle. I am re-evaluating my entire life by taking the bold step of finding my life vision. This is a work in progress but making a start is everything.

Love that we center our lives around God. It is Him that gives us strength and makes it all possible. I have goals with the Lord’s help, looked at my values and realised I need to make changes to live out of my values. I have worked on my priorities in my life and am being more honest with myself. Making changes in my schedules! With the Lord’s help I am making progress in bringing my life into alignment with Him! Letting Him help me do life and surrendering the control to Him, and the result is a life controlled.

I also never even thought of the fact that I have acted out of my fears, my core fears. This in itself has been truly liberating. Seeing that my limiting beliefs founded out of my fears was also revelatory.
Finding the way to see myself as God sees me and know that things can change, that I can find my identity in Christ, as a child of God. See the potential that He sees in me.

The most practical thing of all, is the exercises, journaling, and the reset strategies. The focus on an active practice.
Loved finding the Words and Word of the Lord that can be used in declaration and in battle against the lies of the enemy, and to strengthen my resolve.

All this to say, it has been a practical way of learning to walk in the power of Holy Spirit. So thankful that every small detail in my life matters to Him. So thankful that I am still a work in progress and that no matter how many times I fall or slide back, I can get up and continue on the journey, knowing that I will get to my destination in time.

The biggest thing for me is breaking through to a new lower size. Praising the Lord and giving Him the Glory and thanking Him for my dear sister Cathy who is being obedient to Him to run wlgw. Praising God. Amen!!

Lesley C

So insightful and practical

I love doing the Breakthrough course LIVE! It is hard work to face some deeply embedded feelings and beliefs, but it was so encouraging to share and see that I’m not the only one who struggles with false identities and fears
That gave me hope to continue pressing forward. Thank you for your commitment to helping us experience the abundant life that Jesus died to give us.

Melanie G

Learning so much about myself and God

Each time I go through the Breakthrough course I’m learning more about myself (peeling off the layers), and also am learning more about God. He has so many promises for me in His Word, and He wants only the best for me. He is giving me strength, and all is well in Him!

Ena G.

Chains are Broken!

I truly believe that I have seen a “Breakthrough” In my health journey. This was my second time going through Breakthrough but the first time I did not finish to the end. Even before the first time I did Breakthrough, God was preparing me. I had cried out to Him. I was journaling my prayers and His gentle words of encouragement. When I took the the first 21 Day Challenge, I couldn’t believe they were the same words in my journal! I knew then that WLGW was something He lead me to. From there I joined Breakthrough. Even after I did not complete the first Breakthrough, the words of Truth that I learned kept coming back to my mind as well as particular things Cathy had said like, “Watch how you show up. Are you always rushing? Always having excuses why you are late or couldn’t do something.” But I spent a little over a year going back downhill – eating and binging with attempts at change – my own attempts – without God. But God kept speaking words of Truth to me. For about six months His words were, “I am going to change you from the inside out.” Then I saw there was another 21 Day Challenge. I hoped it would get me refocused. Then another opportunity for Breakthrough after that. I jumped at that. I wanted in! God had been preparing me. I was at a point where I was truly ready for change…to lay some old stuff down…to swap lies for Truth. I know this battle isn’t over but I now have tools to fight and sisters in Christ to stand beside me. Thank you Cathy for your beautiful ministry.

Geraldine C Viglas

Great course

Loved it. Taught me so much about myself, and what I need to work on with God so I can become the woman He created me to be. Thank you Cathy!

Debi Shelton

Mindfulness

I have enjoyed this program. The videos have made me laugh and really be aware of the things I do.or don’t do that keep me from committing to permanent weight loss. This process has also made me really give it up to God! I have also loved all the music videos.

Norma z

Even though I knew some

Even though I knew some of this information, it was a great reminder and it helped me get through my sickness. Thanks again, this lesson was very helpful!!

Shirleyann Speller

Listening, turning, praying

In my own 21 day challenge I seemed to be on a slightly different track than what I was reading on other posts as I went through it. My challenge was focused more on the spiritual aspect more so than the weight loss. I think that’s where I needed to focus though. I walked daily. During my walking I practiced a gentle inward turning and listening to the holy spirit. I wasn’t always successful and still am not always, but I found during my walking that I had gradually turned from listening to actively praying as I walked my entire walk. Although I had gradually changed to praying, at home I was listening more which has helped somewhat in my eating because as I listen and pay attention to those “nudges” I get telling me when to stop eating and what, at times, to choose to eat, I was eating less.
I did find an area I need to work on and that is SLOWing Down. I notice half the time I’m so busy doing things I may listen but I don’t wait for an answer(!) So I think I will be practicing that in the near future.

A found Breakthrough Part 2

A found Breakthrough Part 2 very insightful and helpful. I like this type of searching and personal work.

Jen

Godly group strength

The 40 day detox challenge has helped me let go Diet Coke and artificial sweeteners physically but the bigger changes are in my thinking. My awareness of toxic thoughts and habits has increased and gradually I see the way I think and act changing, so I am becoming more God focused and positive. The interaction with other people doing the challenge has been particularly helpful, building friendship and a godly support network, as we each work through our challenge and support each other by sharing our personal experience and revelations and lift one another up in prayer.

Verna P

Praise God

I thank God for leading me to Weight Loss God’s Way. I thought about taking out a membership but waited. Then the 21 day Challenge came up. I felt the Holy Spirit was leading me to sign up for it. So l did. It has been a wonderful program. It taught me that l have to submit my journey to God. I have been trying on my own strength, so weight loss has been unsuccessful . My goal was to lose 3 pounds during the challenge and to track my food. Thank God! I was successful. I lost 4.3 pounds and tracked everyday. It gave me an opportunity to grow closer to God with journaling and reading the Bible. The challenge also helped me to look at why l have had a weight program all my life. I am an emotional eater and need to turn to God to help me with this. I now know all things are possible with God. He loves me and wants me to be healthy.
I am going to become a member and take the next segment Breakthrough. I can’t wait to continue this journey with the Lord.

Karen Z

21 days to awesome

Step 1 of the program has helped me understand some of my weaknesses and to know I can lean on the Lord is everything. I now look at exercise as a way to praise God for all the wonderful things he does iny life beyond just a dependance on food. Life is more than food and the body more than clothing.

Freedom

Dear all the beautiful and wonderful women of WLGW,

here is my little testimony about 21-day challenge. The past two and a half years of my life hasn’t been the best regarding to my health. In the result of big changes in my whole being and the high level of stress that it caused I started to eat as much as I hadn’t in my life. Of course, I started more and more dislike myself, but of course somewhere it is not only about weight, but more about me myself, the core of myself that I cannot befriend. When I received e-mail about 21-day challenge I felt very strongly that this is what I need to do, and God knows, how powerful it was for me.. such freedom, such joy, hope, faith in God and myself, such healing through daily exercises. And what I felt was that this is such a spiritually strong community and of course first of all You, dear Cathy. I cannot explain it differently that after all this time I suddenly was able to put myself in God’s hands and receive His saving power so strongly and instantly in all the 21 days.
After it finished, I experienced fall again, and still there are struggles in me as before, but at least now I know that the victory in Christ is real and achievable. I have decided to join the Breakthrough course because one is not fighter, there is no persistent power in it.

In prayer for all of you,
e.

Learning to Submit

These 21 days have been fairly easy I am trying to resubmit my life to Christ in food and exercise and every area of my life. I have lost 7 pounds in 21 days I am very happy about that I want to continue on this journey and I want to continue submitting my life to Christ! One thing that I did implement pretty religiously was that I do not eat after 6 o’clock and I pray that I continue that!

Molly W

I did it!

I am so proud of myself, although I did get behind in the lessons from time to time. I stuck to the detox. I made it through the temptations! I wanted this more than I wanted chips!

I realized through this program, it’s time to either trust God and succeed or keeping doing my way and fall short. I choose God’s way! And I am happy I did. I was able to go to birthday celebrations and not over eat! Normally, I would use this as an excuse to overeat and tell myself the familiar lie, i will eat right tomorrow. I have had 30 years of eating right tomorrow. I am done with that old mindset, today is a day of salvation for my spirit, my souls and my body! And I choose life!

Monya S

So pleased

These 21 days have been so informative. I’ve learned things about myself and my relationship with God. I’ve learned tools to help my rely on God’s strength and not on my own. I’m so looking forward to the next chapter, Breakthrough part 1.

Debi Shelton

Thank you

I am grateful to be part of this program and I thank Cathy for putting the program together and everyone that works behind the scenes to assist her with the day to day items.

I feel the Lord working in my life and I look forward to moving on to the next part of the program to see Him work even more to help me break these poor habits of addiction. Lord, I ask you to continue to help me on this journey. In Jesus name, amen.

Dawn E.

What I’ve learned about myself

What I learned most about myself during this study:
I live my life almost always trailing behind, trying to catch up either every few days or few months on things. Overall, I’m afraid of commitment. Commitment opens the door wider for failure to enter.

This realization is convicting. I knew that I don’t compete everything I start, but I hadn’t realized how much it defines how I choose to live my life. I hadn’t realized how much I was afraid of commitment and failure. I thought it just was that I liked to try new things out and if I do not succeed at it or finish it, it just meant that it’s not one of my strengths to do.I

I have also learned how to eat healthier in a way that is not a struggle for me. I now plan what foods I need to have in the house so I can make what I like to eat as well as make for my husband things he likes to eat that I choose to no longer eat!

This has been a wonderful journey, one I choose to continue on

Mary R.

Starting Over

The 40-day Detox is phenomenal! My participation was not. I learned a lot about myself. I’m too busy, I’m too tired, etc. to commit or fully participate. I will always have an excuse. For the first time, I didn’t see something I was trying as ‘just another program.’ I’m praying for God’s strength to focus solely on him. I’ve come to the conclusion it’s constant renewal—and God is the one who renews (not me.) I will always be starting over and making it a little further on my journey with God’s renewal and healing.

Thank you for giving me a platform to learn so much about how God is trying to work through me!

Ronda W

Just What I Needed

I’ve been a WLGW member since almost this time last year. God has taken me slowly to this place where I’m understanding more and more how my mindset and habits have been stunting my growth. I’m grateful for the 40 Day Detox…God has used these lessons and the encouragement of the other women in the course to open my eyes and my mind to what He has in store for me in the future. I want to honor Him with my body, my mind and my life. I want to submit all of my heart to Him. Thank you to Cathy and the other people who help support the WLGW program and these courses.

40 Day Sugar Detox

Prior to starting the 40 Day detox my weight loss journey was inconsistent and I started over every Monday. My eating was out of control and I was 222 lbs. This program has transformed my mind, body, and Spirit. I looked forward to my daily emails which was a time of worship, enlightenment, and positive feedback. I have lost 10 lbs and have 50 more pounds to go. Cathy you are an inspiration and I thank God for inspiring you to write WLGW. I lam looking forward to my next class called Breakthrough !

Freedom!

This has been an extraordinary experience of getting healthy. I was nervous about 40 days, but after 40 days in, I won’t be going back to my old ways. I will reread the Detox book and this lessons every 40 days to have freedom from extra unhealthy pounds and freedom in Christ. I love how easy Cathy is to listen to and how much support and encouragement I felt during the last 40 days. I love Weight Loss God’s Way and Cathy Morenzie!! Oh, and I lost 14 lbs in the 40 days. Woohoo!!!!

Eye Opening

I enjoyed this course from day 1 through day 21. Every session was a significant building block to support growth and change. I learned so much.
Thank you, Cathy!

40 Days

I was anxious and worried about starting the 40 day detox . . . Could I really go without sugar for 40 days? I could barely go a couple hours without sugar let alone the thought of going without for 40 days! If it hadn’t been for me seeing my hyacinth that was in my flower garden amidst weeds that was blooming away in early January and Jesus whispering “Do not worry, take my hand for I am with you.” I wouldn’t have taken that leap of faith. Some days were more challenging than others but as I began to trust my Saviour and lean on Him and my sisters that were on the same journey He showed me that I could do all things in Him that strengthens me. Victory has come and yy relationship with Jesus grew stronger and I released nearly 16 pounds. All Praise to My Father!

“” obedience “

For me, it’s all about obedience. Learning to take care of this temple that God has given me. I don’t remember which day it was but it talked about how many days that we actually have to live in this temple. It is up to us to take care of it. I am so thankful for going through this 40 days, not that I did it perfectly but I made it! Thank you Cathy for getting us through each day. Praise God!

“”Overcomer

This group and program have been amazing. I joined WLGW on the first of January and started the 40-day sugar detox on the sixth. I’ve lost almost 19 lbs (released), but what I’ve gained is so much more. I’ve gained a supportive group of Christian women who understand what I am going through and a guide in Cathy who helps me focus, not on calorie counts an exercise repetition, but on changing the thoughts that made me overweight. My biggest gain is my closer relationship with the Lord. Thank you! I am so excited to continue this journey with the Breakthrough course.

""Kim T

“”Powerful!

The 40 Day Detox brought me closer to the Lord, deeper in my commitment to Him, and into fellowship with other like-minded sisters in Christ. Releasing dependencies and trusting Him more was the good fruit that came from the excellent lessons and interactions. The daily prayers were powerful and journaling exercises were liberating. I am so grateful for the course and highly recommend it.

""Jen W

“”Awesome 40 Days

This course was an immense help to me to encourage my focus on establishing a new lifestyle of thinking, planning, and eating because it touches on all of our being: spirit, soul, and body. The daily practice of recognizing toxic thoughts, capturing them and replacing them with God’s truth is truly the only way to transformed thinking and living in total freedom according to God’s principles and plan. Thank you, Cathy, for being an instrument of bringing victory and freedom to the struggling captives.

Beverly R.

“”Awesome!

I learned so much about my relationship with God. He has begun a new thing in me and I am awed,as I always am, at his lavishness for a wretch like me.

Thank you Cathy for the blessing of this course

“”Climbing the Mountain

The Lord presented me with a very low-key invitation to do this sugar detox, and I almost tip-toed into it. Then I began to be carried along by God’s grace day to day, sometimes lifted above the struggle and sometimes sort of trudging along. All of this was done with confidence in Cathy’s ability to guide me and keep me focused on the Lord and His Word and on the need to rewire my thoughts about the Lord and this battle with sugar.

I am pursuing the Lord and He is healing me. I believe I have now been given this gift of being sugar-free. I have never been here before. So how will I possess the land now? As this lesson says–the same way I did the detox–with total focus and depending on the Lord. I am the “overwhelmed, behind the 8 ball person” referred to above, but God has drawn me to start the days with Him and gotten me focused. He has helped me to let His Word sink in, and Cathy has enabled me to make the connection from the Word to action with her applications and her encouragement to plan more, to do the active practices, pray the prayers and journal. This is a solid, effective Christian program.

So the rewiring has begun. There is such joy in this and in the Lord. I don’t think 40 is a magic number but it is a significant Biblical number, and for me, I needed a substantial number of days to get me out of my sugar rut and climbing this mountain with the Lord and with so many sisters. The faith of these ladies has nourished me along the way. So thankful for the thoughts and emotions they have shared and the prayers we have prayed. Thank you, Cathy for this Spirit-Filled Sugar-Free 40 Day Detox!

""Molly B.

Challenged and Blessed

This program has challenged me spiritually and physically. If I continue to seek God eAch day for support and guidance, it will permanently change my life. The best thing physically Has been the ability to control nighttime eating and also adhering to a workout routine consistently. Emotionally I have eliminated binge eating except for a few slip ups early on. The prayers and lessons have been like a special treasure that I looked forward to each morning. Thank you Cathy and all who assisted with this very special program.

Lo D

“”So Thankful

I am so thankful for this program. It has helped me learn how to capture those toxic thoughts that have caused havoc in my daily life. These 40 days have not been perfect by any means, but I have grown in my spiritual walk remembering that progress, not perfection is to be my goal. I have released 16 pounds & definitely, I am thankful for that. I have gained so much more in spiritual growth & desire to continue that growth in the days ahead as I keep on keeping on.

"Norma U

This challenge made me slow down and see the wonderful work God can do in my life. Not only did I eat healthier, I grew closer to God.

Theresa Nelson

“”Loved it

This was an eye opening experience on how much control fear and sugar had on me. It inspired me to respect the temple that God has given me.

""Brenda Owens

“”Living In The Solution

What a mind altering experience. Eye opening encouraging and challenging all in one. I learned so much about dealing with and understanding pain and boundaries. I have a new approach and a new way of responding to this “Weight” Loss journey-all the stuff weighing me down literally is just stuff when I’m focused on God and God alone. He is the solution. I’m eager to see what’s next!

Tammie Lee McElwee

Sad this Study is Over

Blessed beyond words. Learned to seek God on good or bad days. Knowing he is always with me and it gives me the hope that I can continue all I have learned with this study. I loved the daily notes from my sisters, it was very uplifting knowing we were all in this together, and were there for each other. So very thankful to Cathy, Preston and their helpers, for their planning all of the studies for us. I will continue with Messy in the Middle. I know I will go back and re-study some of the lessons in this study. They were so good. To my sisters wishing you Blessings on your next study.

Donnie G

I got out of it

I got out of it what I put in it. Somedays it was wow and other days it was just eh. But that is me and not a reflection of this program at all. I have issues and God is working on those issues with me.

Cynthia Bussey

21 Day Challenge

Although the numbers on the scale went down just a little, they do not reflect all that was lost and gained through taking this course. I feel so much more in control of myself now and have a renewed enthusiasm for my life in general. I have more energy, am a little less self-focused, have more interest in the things around me, and my clothes fit a little looser, too. 🙂 The videos were amazing! They were funny, but also convicting. Cathy’s insight is priceless! She challenged, inspired and encouraged me throughout this course and I am so thankful for all that I learned. It opened my eyes to the truth that we all struggle with most of the same characteristics and it is possible to attain and maintain victory over this stronghold! I am thankful for this program, Cathy and Preston, and for all the dear sisters who are walking through it with me! God bless you all!

Kathy W.

“”Encouraged to Move Forward

I want to say first off that I did not lose much weight these last 21 days but I gain some tools, invaluable insights into my self and I strengthen my walk with the Lord through this course.
I want to lose the excess weight I have been carrying around for such a long time as much as anyone but I knew when I started that there were deep rooted issues going on within me.They needed to be addressed and I knew that only through the Word of God and support from other Christian women would I finally break these chains. This course has started me on this lifelong, (one day at a time) journey.
I feel like I felt when I committed my life to the Lord.
I was finally home..There would be many many challenges but the Woman that I knew the Lord had made, the one trapped under excess pounds n in bondage from years of self-deafeating thoughts n feelings would finally shine through.
For me, I know God has provided a way for me to obtain freedom from those attitudes.Those attitudes that have caused me to make poor choices which have led to poor health. The Lord provided his help to me on those issues through this program.
If I have one criticism it is that I did not get the support within the course postings that was offered by doing the FB Live edition.Other then that I am moving on to the next course, encouraged, inspired n excited where the Lord and I are going next.

""Rashida S

Thank you

I appreciated all of the godly counsel and scriptural advice I received ruing this course. Thank you, Cathie!

Darla S

“”Thank You God

This program helped open my eyes to some things that I was doing out of habit that was really sabotaging my efforts in the long run. Going through each step a day at a time gives you time to journal and see what God has to show you. It got me back to journaling again. If you truly open your heart and mind to the Lord He lifts that heavy weight (no pun intended) off your shoulders. I pray you give this program a try and seek the Lord while doing so.

Remember you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. God bless.

""Kate W

“” allowed Awareness

This program gave me insight as to the areas I struggle when it comes to losing weight. Although this program requires commitment and discipline, it gives me the ability to work on things that I deem are important. I struggle with self image and with the genes of potentially being overweight. I want to continue in this program to improve my view of myself and change my perspective into gods perspective and I recommend this program for anyone who wants to change their course of life in regards to weight loss <3 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me✊?????

""Shaela W.

What I Was Missing

This journey has been a God-send. I’ve tried to lose weight for years, on my own, without actually praying to God for His help and guidance. This program helped me to search my heart and mind to see the areas where I struggled at the most and gave me prayers that I could pray to help me overcome those areas. Each video was an area that I could relate to. I really appreciated the sharing component as well as it helped me to be able to discuss what was on my mind with others that were going through something similar. Everyone has been very encouraging and I truly enjoyed this challenge. Looking forward to the next step in my weight-loss journey!

Rikesha F.

Thank you

I am so thankful that I found this challenge,

Sharon Caple

Including God in this journey

This is a great way to include God on your weight loss journey. He wants to be a part of every aspect of our lives and Cathy has given us the tools needed to do that.

Lynn B

I feel ready for the next step.

I feel ready for the next step in the process. I have learned a lot during the 21 day challenge

Diane

Informative

This course helped to solidify information I already knew, but needed a refresher on, and provided a better understanding of how macro/micronutrients are a part of our food intake and how to maximize them for a healthy eating plan.

Marilyn Papierski

So thankful

I’m so thankful for this program and the network of others who are on the journey with me. I knew I had hit a wall when my emotions led me to a defiant consumption of donuts and pizza one night. God used my husband, who was in agreement with taking steps to deal with this sin in my life and asked that I find a program that was faith-based. I didn’t think such a thing existed until I did an internet search. It has everything I wanted and needed…accountability, day-by-day encouragement, peeling back the layers of why I was overeating and the emotional binges, exercise modules, menus and so much more. WLGW has helped to identify what my part is in the problem and that inviting God into this journey is a foundational element to yielding this stronghold to him. I highly recommend WLGW and am looking forward to the next course!

Marilyn Papierski

Connecting the dots

Last year I tried to do the 21 Day challenge, but did not join the group for support. I did a the reading, but was not able to “make” it work. This time I got online with the program for support and realized that I would never make it happen. I needed God and support from this group. This year I found success in the Lord and small moving on to the next level.

Jimi P

Reconnecting with God

I lost7 lbs during this 21!day challenge! The daily lessons kept me focused and with Cathy’s guidance I learned a lot about myself and my poor habits. The most difficult period of time for me were the last five days of the program.
I enjoyed Cathy’s humorous skits and could easily identify with all of them. I kept praying and giving thanks to God for His love and presence and for helping me make the changes I need to make. Can’t wait for the next challenge!

Alaina P

I have to say this

I have to say this program has been like nothing I have ever experienced regarding weightloss. To look at weightloss through Gods eyes is amazing. I have learned so much about myself. it takes you to the core of what really sabotages weightloss. I am excited about what lies ahead in this program. Even if you just do the 21 day challenge it is worth it. The music,the prayers, scriptures and of course Cathy’s knowledge and humor make you excited for what the next step is in your journey on weightloss.

Health

I loved the 21 day challenge. I feel closer to God. I am on this journey with him. Partnering with God to restore my health is the best decision I’ve ever made.

Jen Miller

Awareness

The most noticeable difference in me after the 21 day challenge is the increased awareness I now have in practically every area of my life. I am more conscious of my diet, exercise, and obedience/surrender to God. I
have not progressed flawlessly, but I have progressed! I am looking forward to the next phase and breaking g through the strongholds that keep me from being the best I can be.

Susan B

I CAN do it – with the help of God.

I started my 21-Day Challenge the day after Christmas. I had gone to the doctor who wanted to increase my blood pressure medication. I told him I know why it’s high – because I need to lose weight. I asked him to let me lose some weight before we make a change. We talked about how I lose and gain the same 10 pound over and over again. I really have 30-40 lbs to lose. He told me that I quit too soon, and asked why I do that. At the time I didn’t know. NOW I DO!! After this 21 Day Challenge, I have learned a lot about why I won’t stick with a program. The biggest reason is that I never brought God into my weight-loss journey. I always thought I could do it myself. HAHA! That wasn’t working. I also learned that my beliefs, blaming, excuses, focus, and self-control are hinderances in my journey. I lost 8.5 lbs in this 21-Day challenge and have no desire to go back to my lazy, over-indulgent ways. With Christ at my side, I can do all things! I look forward to logging in each morning to set my day right with God and my health.

Theresa J

Living water

This was actually good for me, but I had to fill jugs for the day to measure and remember to drink. I believe it’s a large reason why I lost 8.5 lbs in 2 weeks and why I’m feeling so good.
There were 2 times I went off the “no alcohol “ rule and had a glass of wine, but it didn’t discourage me from continuing.

Hope M

Free From The Guilt of Gluttony

This 21 day challenge has been inspiring, insightful and life changing. I am now in control and free from daily temptations, failures, doubts, and insecurities . I love the accountability and feel like am in control. I lost 4.5 1bs and so excited to finally be on the straight and narrow. Prayerfully I will be victorious until the end. My job is to keep God first and renew my strength daily.

21 Days of Soul Searching

This program is very empowering! I have tried many many diets or programs in my long journey of wanting to loose weight, only to keep gaining double. I am at my very highest right now. This is the very first time that I am starting to feel a real difference, a change that’s is coming from deep inside of me, but also a peace and feeling of security which I know is coming from my Father! Thank you for this awesome program!

Katia Costa

Gods love

We dont understand Gods type of love for us. We just have to believe it. Chistmas is the perfect time to reflect on his love for us. How far He goes to show us. We have to reach out our hands to Him, to receive it. I love the idea, of putting my hand over my heart in reflection. Thank you for this course.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the

I have thoroughly enjoyed the 21 day challenge. It re-motivated me and got me back on track. I didn’t reach my goal but went down every week. I love how scripture and faith are intertwined with weight loss. My only suggestion is to somehow get more people to give encouraging words to everyone. I wrote every day, sent other people ‘likes’ or an encouraging word, went down in weight every week with no one giving encouragement back… so now I no longer write it down here. I just journal at home.

Linda A

What I needed to be reminded of this season!

I am so grateful for this devotional of receiving GOD’S love, especially this season. When things in this world seem to spiral out of control and you start spinning with everyone else, you can set aside just a few minutes each day to remind yourself of HIS great love for you this season. It sets the tone for each day, takes you to a peaceful, quiet, reflective place and just lets you soak in HIS love. I love the addition of scripture to not only reference but to meditate on. I feel rested after this devotional, more reflective on the reason for the season and ready to bask fully in all the ways this devotion teaches about HIS love…thank you Cathy and all of the people at Weight Loss GOD’s Way that made this possible and to let me feel closer to HIM.

Cynthia Nelson

Breakthrough

I thank God for Cathy and all others who made this course possible. I have hope, faith and vision to raise up the valleys and bring every mountain down low. I know that by placing Jesus and His love for me at the forefront of this battle, I am guaranteed success. I understand who I am, what false identies I believe and how to realign myself with Gods original design for my life. I am on a journey , I am not perfect but I am loved by my Father!

Adele V

God loves me

I have again been reminded in many ways this season how much God loves. It is not based on my behavior but on the goodness and mercy of God. Not just in His word but in the friendships He has blessed me with. I’ve lost my good friend Emily to Alzheimer’s but God has added Ronda to my life to be a mentoring encourager. I am so very loved and blessed.

Lee F

His Presence

I am prompted to seek God’s presence in my heart and life. This devotional has helped me do that.

Sandra W

A step toward my word for 2018/19

I picked the word “peace” to strive for, as my life (and that of my children) has been so chaotic and stressed over the years that I am determined that I will do all I can to increase “the peace that surpasses all understanding” for our lives. That means depending on God’s strength and love and mercy, and being a good steward of what he’s given me. Which includes caring for the whole of me,the others in my life, and Him.

I’m learning, through wLGW, and sheer age, that I am God’s child. I can grow and love and not fear. I can embrace being who God has made me!

Hope M

A nice Advent focus

I learned so much and as usual feel the need to repeat it so change can soak in. I’m such a busy time this was succinct yet deep. I’m thankful for the reflections, prayers and focus on our Lord’s love for us.

Edie Shelton

As I complete this course,

As I complete this course, the word given to me for the upcoming year is DWELL. God has been asking for more of me. More of my time. I’m in a position now to wait on Him for vision, direction and purpose. I will be mindful. I will be passionate. I will be in the moment.

Bonnie A

So thankful!

The 21 Day Challenge has been a big blessing to me. Each lesson is helpful and breaks down the issue and aspects of finding freedom into manageable, realistic parts. Each lesson is well written and the whole course is very well organized. The website is awesome. It is amazingly easy to navigate and the breadth of the resources offered I have yet to take full advantage of.

I love the ways we are motivated and encouraged to be a part of a true sisterhood in Christ. There is plenty of help with the practical aspects of weight loss and living a healthy lifestyle, but the focus of the program takes us deeper, to look at the reasons behind our behavior. If we don’t get to the root of our weight issues, we cannot find true and lasting freedom. I appreciate the humorous videos, the wisdom and experience Cathy brings, the love and care of a supportive team, the anointing of the Holy Spirit on this program, and the focus on bringing God glory and honor.

This program is so special. It combines the support similar to a 12-step program, the structure and support and great online resources, a place to connect with other women and build new friendships, the fitness and nutrition knowledge of a personal trainer, the wisdom of God’s Word, and the mighty power of prayer. It is both personal and professional. Participants can choose for themselves how involved to be. There is no pressure here. No guilt trips!

Most important of all is the love I have felt here, both through Cathy and through her team. What she has done through this course is done out of love, love for God and love for women. She obviously is very committed to seeing women break free from the chains of bondage to food and live abundant lives in Christ. Love is a powerfully motivating force to bring about real life change.

All who put into practice the principles taught through this course will benefit significantly from it. Thank you!

Breakthrough truly was a Breakthrough

I knew I ate when stressed or ate emotionally…it’s one of the reasons I’m doing WLGW. However, I had no idea how connected my choices were to limiting beliefs or false identities I had taken on nearly all my life! It was eye-opening to me knowing many beliefs I had that I hid as apart of being a “Good Christian” were actually preventing me from releasing weight and were really an excuse to hold onto my weight and not embrace change.

Thank you Cathy for creating this program and giving me the tools I know are going to help me actually grow closer to the Lord, while releasing the weight.

Stefani R

A Ways to Go – Stuck

I don’t have much of a testimony now, although I finished the 21 day challenge I am still stuck in not knowing exactly what to eat and when because of healthy conditions that prevent me from eating healthy foods and medications that I have to take that increase my appetite and cause weight gain. I can’t seem to quit eating. I’m still plugging ahead though and not giving up.

Debra T

The 21 day challenge helped

The 21 day challenge helped me to stay sorta focused during the most difficult season for weight loss- THANKSGIVING!. Yes, I did get off track but I am determined to get back on track. Looking forward to Breakthrough. Connecting releasing weight to God’s word is a great way to add accountability to weight loss goals.

Renee K

Another great course from Cathy at Weight Loss God’s Way

This biblically based course really gets one to think and evaluate their life. I now see how my fears have kept me from living life to its fullest; but, no more! I’m equipped with the tools and knowledge to live victoriously on my weight releasing journey and in life in general. Thank you Cathy for allowing God to use your teaching ability to minister to so many.

Life Changing Course

I have learned so much about who I am in Christ, and how I am sabotaging my health by not living through Him. My life and my health are changing daily. I feel great, I’ve lost several pounds and on my way to my goal. I finally feel like I can be successful in this struggle because I know how to be successful and how to look to God for what I need and not rely on my own flawed beliefs. Thank you for teaching me how to embrace who I am in Christ and not rely on who I think I am.

REST- A Joyful study.

This study was wonderful. Short study but important to me, to take the four letters and study God’s Goodness, his Stillness, his Faithfulness, and my Neediness to him was a good way to slow down and read the word, and be still and wait to hear him.

Hope others take this study it was so good.

Amazing teashing!

I have been so blessed to get the kind of teaching I have needed for a very long time. I have struggled with food addiction for years.but have never had this kind of biblical resource available to me. I have been strengthed up in my inner man by the solid bible principles Cathy is teaching. I have released about 11 pounds since I have started WLGW. I am telling all my friends about it. I will be continuing on the refresher teaching as well. This is a lifelong journey and I am ready. T

What I Didn’t Know

I am so grateful for the knowledge of just how important water is to so many different systems and functions of our body. I am craving water more, and I continue to increase my intake as I go along. Thank you Cathy, for caring and sharing about so much more than a lower number on a scale.

Bonnie A

A Life Changer

I have been yo-to dieting for over 30 years. I never considered giving my weight loss to God. He brought me here and has opened my eyes to many things holding me back. I choose Him and I will release this weight. I released 5 pounds during the 21 day challenge and learned so many things about myself. God has used this program to open my eyes and my heart.

Hallelujah! First Step Done

I was so excited when I Tripped onto the 21 day devotional. I had done weight Watchers for years with no success. In January I had begun to read and learn about healing. An Unfinished Death was a novel that propelled me into the study. I have since read it at least 5-7 times. She makes a comment about health and diets. Man tries to combine God’s gifts of grace with man’s knowledge without success. Oil and water. As I began to pray and seek God’s wisdom, I found this program. I was ready. The food diary was something I didn’t want to do. With the exception of last Sunday, I have been keeping true to it. As I fractured my elbow, food preparation is just about impossible so I have been buying prepared meals. Not lean cuisines or healthy choices. Real comfort food. Still losing weight. I found my commitment to 7pm food curfew was turning into a suggestion. I confessed this. Choosing to forego dinner if I forgot dinner doing mind numbing activities. All in all I rejoice because this was God’s timetable for me, He enabled to persevere. I had never finished a weight and health goal before. I had been praying for health for a least 2 years. Praise God.

Growth and Grace

I am grateful and excited. This program has removed the scales from my eyes and clearly shown me areas where I’ve been in denial. It has also given me hope for the outcome & grace to forgive myself for imperfections along the way. I’m not where I want to be but thank God I’m not where I used to be. And I’m excited about where I’m going and the journey I’m on.

Creating a workout and a healthy work habit

After reviewing this course I realize that my mind set was off base. I was more focused on getting fit than getting my body in alignment to what God created it to be. I need to focus more on God and not my body. Cause when I do the other will follow it.

RESET in my thoughts

I saw a little of myself in several of them. I feel out of control if I’m not in control of things. I even need to plan ahead for things and if something happens it throws me all off and I go in a spiral. I also place myself in the caregiver/martyr position when I saw I have to grab something quick to eat and usually that is something that’s not good for me because I have to do such and such for someone.I try to please everyone because I don’t want to see anyone hurt and such. But really these are all excuses. Unreal excuses I tell myself so it can make me feel better when I fail. It’s time to change that.

Denise R

Wow!

I am so glad I took the first step and enrolled in the 21 Day Challenge. I know without a doubt the Lord has led me to this place, for this time in my life. I felt each lesson was intended personally for me. I feel encouraged that I no longer need to search for the answers on my own, but to trust the Lord to continue to show me the areas He longs to deliver me from. Through these lessons He is revealing so much to my heart, and I’m excited to see His light continue to unfold within me, as I learn to truly submit to His will.

God’s light shines through Cathy, and He’s given her a beautiful gift in ministry, to outreach to so many of us looking for a different way, with a fun and interesting approach. We are learning to discover our true beauty and see, and love ourselves as our Heavenly Father does.

I’m happy to continue this journey in the next step with the Breakthrough courses, that I might continue to grow in new truths and understanding, that will set me free. Who the Son sets free – is free indeed!

Devonne H.

So Thankful

I’m so thankful God allowed me find this program. It has taught me the root causes of why I turn to food. Now I know why I overeat and how to overcome my unhealthy habits.

A Fun Way to Begin

I really enjoyed the 21 Day Challenge. I really enjoyed each fun video. They were very relatable. I began tracking using fitness pal.

overloading

Ireally enjoyed this study, especially the videos they really related to me made me laugh, they are so true for my life. I started the breakthrough live the same time as the 21 day challenge. Than, I got busy with camping and babysitting our granddaughter for a week. So, I got lost in my studies and cannot remember my goal or vision. So I take too much on at the beginning. I get inpatient w my results. how slow i lose my weight.than i quit.

21-Day Challenge

The 21-Day challenge has helped me to slow down and step back and take a look at where I have been struggling with letting the Lord lead. Having a great Godly coach like Cathy and lots of encouragement and prayers from sisters with the same struggles really makes a huge difference! Looking forward to Breakthrough<3

Betty C.

Miracles do happen!

I thank God for leading me to this program. I have tried so many times in the past, succeeded and then failed again. This time not much has changed on the scale, but much has changed in my heart, I am praying that Holy Spirit will continue to shine His light into all dark corners of my life so that it will be a testimony to His goodness!

Adele V

Awakening

Before the 21 day challenge, I had convinced myself that I was doing everything I could to have a healthy lifestyle. But I now see the excuses that I used for my unhealthy habits. With my new goals and new perspective, I am leaning on the Lord to help me break my bad habits so I can glorify Him with good health.

Valerue A

Wow!!

I enjoyed the 21 day challenge and can’t wait to see what comes in breakthrough. I released 12 pounds during the 21 day challenge and I am not looking back. I am finally able to stick with a plan because it’s not a huge bunch of changes all at once. I chose to try to do all 3 of the recommendations at once and was successful with that 90% of the time. Thank you for this excellent course!!

Amazing Plan

I really enjoyed learning new ways of eating habits and water drinking habits. I look forward to the entire program.

LaVonne

Awesome Program

This program helps me to see everything in a whole new light. It helped me stay consistent and I’ve learned how to stay discipline and focus. Learning how to put me first. Sending me on my way to achieve my healthy lifestyle goals.

LaVonne

Great Beginning

This is a great course for learning the basics of nutrition. It also helps you put your focus in the right places. I am living proof that you can not out-train a bad diet. Since my meal planning has been put into place, the bad decisions made are few.

Cindy M

I DID ALL of the 21 Day Challenge

For me, this was a miracle. I completed the Challenge! I actually looked forward to watching the daily videos and writing a response. It made me think about my life and what I’ve been doing wrong with trying to lose weight. It was good to journal and dialogue with God daily about what I was doing. It was good to stick with only weighing in once a week and not worrying about everything else. It was awesome to lean and depend on God, and HEAR His Voice! I’m so thankful God sent the books, and then the Challenge my way. I lost 7 pounds during the 21 days. Normally, I’d be discouraged and disappointed, thinking why didn’t I lose more? However, the biggest part of my testimony is that my blood pressure is DOWN! 21 days of doing what I’m supposed to do — eating better, exercising 15 minutes or more, and writing everything down. It has helped me with WW and more. I plan to continue with this program because it has started to reshape my way of thinking. All the videos spoke to me. It was like, “man — was Cathy at my house?” I have already recommended her books and Challenge to several other women. I plan to talk about again at two conferences I’m attending in October and November! Praise God for Cathy and this wonderful program. I’m excited and ready to truly move forward … AND THIS IS A FIRST FOR ME. I’ve been yo-yo dieting for 37 of my 52 years.

Laura S

Love this program SO much!

Love this program SO much! It is so eye-opening and brings so much into the light as to why we are the way we are. Thank you, Lord, for Puttibg this program on Cathy’s heart!

Sheri Chesness

I Love this Program!

I feel so encouraged by the information that’s being provided. I have never encountered a program like this that provides so much information and resources. I am thankful to the Lord for this program!

Remonia E.

Wasn’t totally successful but NOT giving up !

I didn’t stay on time (everyday) but I know this is the right path to finally getting victory over the weight No food
Problem . I plan on continuing with the program and possiblely going back through the 21steps to cement the
Concepts,

Barb

a very eye opening approach

This has been very eye opening and very informative. I have really made some big improvements in my thought process already. I am really enjoying this and can’t wait to see what other changes happen in the next stage.

Cynthia Bussey

Deep and reflective

Loved this course. Very therapeutic. I saw myself in so many of the examples I never realized that I was like that and the reasons that I was like that. And once I was able to reflect on my behaviors and what was behind them I was able to see a big picture and start healing. So now I am on the road it to a healthier mind body and soul simply because I see myself differently now and I appreciate myself more and judge myself a lot less now. My perspective on life is totally different and I will be prayerfully working toward transforming into who God made me to be I’m so thankful to God for directing me to this course. So thankful for Cathy Morenzie and her God-given “gifts” of healing!

Holistic healing

I started this Weight Loss God’s Way journey at the end of January, 2018, with almost 60kg extra weight to release. I have struggled with food and weight all my adult life and have been on many diets. I managed to lose weight on some of these but always regained it and then some. This journey feels quite different- more sustainable, one small change at a time and stripping away the denial and excuses that have taken me back to overeating and weight gain time and time again. To date, I have released 24.1kg but that is not the big change. My thinking is changing and my attitude to exercise, to foods I couldn’t live without and my willingness to commit to one change at a time and to keep looking at the emotional and spiritual roots of my idolatry of food and persevere through the gradual process of allowing God to heal me. I am not hurrying to lose the lot as I did in past diets – it’s about the process more than the number on the scale. I’m so grateful for each day of this journey and for all I’m learning about myself and about my relationship with Jesus.

Verna P

Excellent class

This class really helped me to wake up to my choices. It has been very eye opening. Thank you so much.

Katherine S

In Process

This challenge has helped me get my feet firmly on the ground and provided so much insight on the reasons why I am being challenged in health and fitness. My success during this challenge was learning how to pray through this process and being consistent. A big part of the process was examining my unhealthy habits and day by day eliminating them. My binge/emotional eating is decreasing significantly. As I narrow down my food options that are the best fit for my body, I am going to be more successful and effective. This is excellent in helping me build a firm foundation for prayer, discipline, consistency, goal setting, organization and journaling.

Kelli Simone Rembert

Awesome Starting Point

The 21-day challenge is an awesome starting point for your weight loss journey. It was not overwhelming and it is a great tool to help you uncover trouble areas you may have overlooked in past weight loss attempts.

Cindy M

Thank You

This 21 day challenge has been eye opening. It has been fun and encouraging. I have learned so much and I am excited to continue on with Cathy’s courses. This has truly been a blessing in my life. I look forward to every morning, to learn and listen to what Cathy is teaching me/us. Thank You Cathy! I will be forever grateful

Stacy M

Trusting my Lord

This study has come at a good time for me. A lot of pain, surgery is Sept.24th.
Asking the Lord to be with me, never have had any surgery, and in my late 70’s.
Scared but reading the scriptures is helping. I know he is watching over me, which is a Blessing.

Benefits

I like drinking water but I didn’t know there were so many benefits.
Thank you Cathy for teaching me.

REST

This course was very helpful in showing me how I need to spend more restful time with the Lord. I tend to take on too much and then find I have omitted my time to rest in the Lord and his goodness.

Cheryl S

This process has been challenging

This process has been challenging but much needed. I have learned so much, Praise the Lord for this program and for my life change.

Ruth A.

I think I would like

I think I would like to do it again. I started out very good. Friday I did a complete fast for the Month end Fast. My last day was the hardest due to the holiday. I did cheat having 2 pieces of grilled chicken, otherwise I did well.

Robin Craig

I was successful for the

I was successful for the most part with walking everyday for 45 minutes. I had a few days where minor injury was the only obstacle and I listened to my body without feeling guilty or pushing myself to further injury. I have come to realize that success & perfection are not the same thing. Success for me was continuing to be consistent after resting my body when it needed it and then continuing on my journey to exercise daily. It took me longer than 21 days to complete the challenge but I completed it! I’m excited to work through the breakthrough course. Interestingly enough, in bible study we are starting a series called “walk worthy” I can’t wait to see how God is going to weave these two courses together!

Laraye B

Overcoming Guilt

I began to learn how to eat healthy and balanced meals and most importantly, eliminate binge eating. I learned how to do it versus running from diet to diet; I created a positive and healthy lifestyle for myself. I found a different path of peace, hope, gentleness; less perfection and more effectiveness.

Kelli Simone

When all hope was lost

I have tried every weight loss program around. I even tried numerous weight loss Bible studies; as I recongnized my sinful ways and need for divine deliverance. I have struggled with overeating and emotional eating all my life. After another day of complete utter failure at trying to stop my bad habits I was looking online for yet another Bible study to help deliver me. Then “stumbled” onto the WLGW program. It sounded like exactly what I needed. I was scared to open myself up to others in the group and scared of failing again, but what other choice did I have? I could no longer live in sin nor eat myself to an early death. So I join WLGW and it’s been truly life changing! People say “life changing” all the time but this was the first time in 30 yrs I could say something is really changing me in the food area. I have hope again. I see God transforming me like never before. The combination of Cathy’s practical advice, biblical direction, challenges, and accountability is the “perfect storm” I needed to destroy my strong holds! I can’t thank Cathy, Preston, and all the WLGW people enough! When all my hope was lost, my loving Father brought me here. Thank you Jesus!

To God Be the Glory for the Great Things He has done

Three weeks ago things were not great for me. On the outside I managed to pretend that everything was fine so to most people including close family all was well with me. But it wasn’t. Not at all. I had a dark secret that was causing me tremendous inner turmoil. I felt so ashamed and embarrassed about my weight and appearance. I felt like I was a failure. That things were not going well in my life because I was useless and really, were it not for the fact that I have a daughter who I am solely responsible for, I simply wanted to hide myself away and never come out. I was sick of pretending that I was happy when I wasn’t. I was tired of not feeling like myself and for the first time in my life I had began to experience weight related body issues. I felt heavy and just felt like the real me was buried/trapped deep down under all the layers of fat keeping me prisoner.

Thank God for His loving grace! After the shock of stepping on the scales after months of denial and avoiding to weigh myself, I finally did weigh myself. To my dismay I weighed more than I had ever weighed in my life! In desperation I went online to look for a solution. A ‘quick fix’ diet that promised fast results. The Lord knows that I was not looking for any Christian weight loss program because it had never even crossed my mind that those programs existed. So, I was quite surprised when a link came up on my screen for Christian weight loss programs. I certainly had not googled for that!

The first link I opened was Weight Loss God’s Way. At the beginning of the page there was a video with Cathy explaining the program. But to be honest I was in such a frazzled mental state after my weigh in, I couldn’t really focus and listen to what she was saying. So I shut the page down and went to another one of links for Christian diets. Low and behold it was Cathy again! This time it was a written article listing the top 10 Christian diets. I started clicking on different diets at random but in my spirit the Holy Spirit kept on prompting me to re-open the WLGW page and listen to Cathy’s video properly. When I finally got to the final diet on Cathy’s blog it was WLGW and she humbly encouraged us to look at the other diets and make the decision that was right for us. Right then I knew that I wanted to hear more from Cathy and that somehow she would help me. I went back to the WLGW page listened to Cathy, and all that she said resonated in my spirit and I signed up to WLGW immediately. I am so glad I did!

From the very first video in the 21 day challenge I knew I was in the right place. The video initially made me laugh but then it made me cry because it was so true to the emotional state I was in and had been in for years concerning my weight. All along I had thought that the ‘crazy’ extreme measures I used to try to lose weight were unique to me. They weren’t. Cathy was doing some in the videos! LOL! But the missing ingredient and what led me to cry is when in the video Cathy prays to the Lord to say how she is truly fed up with trying to do things her way. That was a profound light bulb moment for me. Because I had never been honest with God about my weight. I pretended as if it didn’t matter but in reality it was a huge area of my life. Even when I was healthy and at an acceptable weight I was tormented by always thinking about food and my weight. This took up a substantial area of my mind and in most ways also dictated my emotional state and mood. To God be the glory because of this program I am learning to submit to the Holy Spirit and allow the Lord to lead me in my weight loss journey. I am happy! I am hopeful! I am joyful! I am also being led to confront issues/ trauma in my life which I had buried by eating the feelings of pain/ hurt etc away. And this is just the beginning! I am so excited to let the Lord do His work and restore me to the being that He created spiritually first then physically. AMEN!

The picture I have attached was taken last week in Cuba! I went there with my daughter for a holiday. My smile is genuine! Thank you Cathy for the awesome work you are doing to help countless women around the world! I pray that the Lord continue to shower you with His love, guidance and strength and that everything your hands touch will prosper! AMEN!!

Amina I

I want Deliverance

The 21 day challenge is great. I love the videos , they make me smile and even laugh but most of all I can relate to every one of them. I do not feel successful after the 21 day challenge but yet I am determined to get deliverance. God gave me deliverance over my food addiction 19 yrs ago and I lost 60lbs. I kept it off for 15 yrs so I KNOW God can and will give this to me. Looking forward to the next step.

Myra W

I’m heading in the right direction!

I am so thankful that I have done the 21 day challenge. I feel like I am headed in the right direction after trying so many diets and even weight loss surgery that left me weighing more than I ever had. I chose to log my food in Fitness Pal and I lost 8 pounds! But more than that I learned so much about myself. Things I was doing wrong – blaming people or situations for my eating, procrastinating, wanting to lose weight fast instead of realizing it came on little by little, it will go off little by little. I also learned that I need to see myself the way God sees me, as His daughter, who He loves, just as I am. Not how I see me or how I think others see me. I also learned that I was looking at the scale as a “god”. I was basing my happiness on what it told me every morning. Not any more. I am excited to go on to the next course, Breakthrough. I know God is not finished with me, but I am headed in the right direction!

Ellen M

Touching

Very touching study, by the last study, The Power of Presence it made me want to feel God’s presence and hear his voice. To take the time, find a quiet spot and wait with patience.

Donnie g

Stopping the rollercoaster

The 21 day challenge helped me to stop eating all night for no reason… to start tracking & to listen to my body…
I can’t wait for the next part

Holky

A great stepping stone

I came into the 21 DayChallenge thinking I already knew the basics of losing weight and didn’t expect to get much out of it. But this is a program unlike any others I’ve tried. Cathy helped me for the first time, really access what’s caused me to go-to diet since fifth grade. For the first time, I’m addressing issues I have with self-image, bitterness, and self control and learning what God has to say about all of it. This truly is a spiritual journey not just a physical one!

Stef

Deepening my walk with the Lord

The past 21 days have not only assisted me in sticking to my healthy eating plan and lose weight, but they have deepened my experience of my walk with God. My relationship with Him has taken a huge step forwards and I feel more at peace and assured of my victory with my health goals, as well as in other areas of life. Thank you Cathy!

Nina GC

Loved Everything

It was awesome. I loved the skits. I would laugh because it was so me. Keep up the good work.

Annie F

Game changer

The 21 Day challenge was good for me because of the “dailyness”. By having a lesson and a challenge each day, it really helped me to stay focused. I’ve done other weight loss programs successfully, but was never able to make it a life change and keep the weight off. I used each lesson as my daily devotional. I watched, read and listened to every part of each lesson. And I lost 6.5 pounds! But more important than the weight loss, I learned a lot about depending on God. If I had a life threatening disease, I would be laser focused on God and on asking him to get me through it. In reality, being overweight IS life threatening.

Jaye W

What hit me the most

What hit me the most is that my exercise is a form of worship to God and that is going to motivate me to do my exercises and do more of them.

Ruth A.

I have always been confused

I have always been confused on what to eat, how much to eat, what’s good and not good, this course has cleared some things I didn’t know about food.

Ruth A.

Great Course

This was a very hard course for me to do because I’m a multi-tasker and if I’m not doing anything I feel like I’m wasting time.

Thank Felicity Boyd for putting this devotional together, I needed it very much.

I will be taking this course over because I need to learn to slow down and spend some quite time with the Lord each day.

Thank you Cathy for this study.

Ruth A.

God lead me here.

On my knees begging God to help me with my weight. I was at my wits end. I had tried everything and did the yo-yo weight loss – gain thing for years. Every time I would lose the weight I would put more than I lost back on. That morning after crying at Gods feet he lead me to this program and I believe with all my heart that He is going to help me stay on track. Thank you Cathy.

Simple to Follow

I’ve been down this road before many times and know what I should eat but doing it’s a different story.

But this challenge reminded me of the basics to good nutrition. It was broken down in simple to follow and understand steps so it didn’t seem so overwhelming. It gave me a great starting to place to get back on track.

Stefani R

GOD IS FAITHFUL….. 1Cor1:9

Bless you and thank you for allowing me on board during these 21 days. For me this has been a time of revision – double checking that I’m heading in the right direction….deeper into His heart. Through it I’ve been able to marvel at His handiwork. I have journeyed through years of desperate need. He has been transforming me through many long years, day by day. He just asked me to keep looking to HIm for everything and learn to be willing to discover what full surrender to Him means for me. He is the Answer to everything I need, ask, want for, long for. I can see He is bringing me through, onwards…in clear progress

Thank you and bless you

I am learning to take care of my body again

When I found this program on the bible app I was ready to make a change in my health. I have discovered some reasons why I have been eating the way I eat and I submit them to.the Lord daily. I am learning how take take care of myself again. I want to take care of myself. It was almost like I didn’t care about my health. My expectations have become more realistic and I am ok with it taking some time. I hope that one day this program can create an app to make it easier to access. In the meantime I have really enjoyed it and am committed for this year.

Kimberly Hamlin

On My Way to a Healthier Me

We serve an awesome God because just when I was praying for help in the area of my health and weight He sent me you, Cathy.
I needed someone to guild me in the right direction regarding food, exercise but most importantly putting God at the head of my weight loss program.
Thank you so much Cathy for listening to the Holy Spirit and for teaching us that it’s not all about the food but about the mental of why and how we eat and if we give it to God, He will guild is us in every area of our live, including weight.
God bless you.

Ruth A

I eat healthier than before,

I eat healthier than before, I am still learning what is good for my body and what is not. But I can feel God changing my desires from unhealthy, sugary, foods to healthier more natural foods. I am exercising more… I didn’t make it everyday because I hurt my back, but I plan on getting back on track with that when I feel better. Even though I wasn’t exercising I didn’t give up eating healthy, which I would have before this program. I know I can do this because I hear and feel God supporting and showing me how. He is so good!

Christy

My life is forever changed

I thank God for my friend that visited me this summer and introduced this plan to me thru the bible app. As I begin to read and watch the videos, God touch my heart and I committed my temple yo him. Working out daily was not an easy task but I begin to see the results immediately! Now my eating was a whole separate concern. At the end, my weight begin to yo you and started to track my food and stopped eating after 7 pm. At this point, I am down 8lbs and the month isn’t over yet. My blood pressure is stabilized after years of trying (120/62).

Mykey Vaughn

There are only 5 stars

There are only 5 stars which in my opinion are not enough. This 21 day challenge is a great start to getting GOD more involved in the process and to start noticing what your dream robbers might be. I learned more about myself in this initial step and look forward to the process and journey of deepening my walk with HIM.

Cynthia N

Changing my focus

This 21 day challenge has revealed to me that in changing the way I focus on my body, I am more focused on my relationship with Christ and who I am in Him. He gives me strength and is my encourager!

Jenny B

Praise God

I prayed for a program like this, God led me here, and I am so blessed. I chose to track my food in My Fitness Pal, which is something I have not done in many years, and it was educating, to say the least. I lost some weight and my clothes fit better, but most importantly, I know what it’s like to have God in my court cheering me on and holding my hand, encouraging me to get healthier and to respect this temple he has gifted to me. I want to do all things for His glory, and I want my physical transformation to be my testimony to his grace and faithfulness. Thank you, Cathy, for creating such a meaningful and powerful program, I am getting so much out of it, and I will sign up for the next course today!
In His Holy Name,

Renewed my mind and body

This 21 day journey has not been so much about loosing weight but beginning and following through with an “internal tune up”. I am a new 64 year old personal trainer and a group fitness instructor so on the whole, I look like and live out my passion for the area of fitness. But I want so much more! I deeply desire to do a lot of fine tuning with the Lord so that I can be His ambassador from the inside out. You know, walk my talk so that my testimony can be a powerful one oand be that more than a conqueror warrior. Cathy’s program has incessantly reminded me of where and how I can renew my mind and body as unto the Lord.
Thank you!

Karina J. M.

Getting to the Root of the Issue

I started this 21-day journey back on January 5, 2018, via the “YouVersion” bible app. I invited some friends to join me, and it was an eye-opener. I was able to complete that plan as I knew I had accountability partners to help me through. It was via this app that I found Cathy’s website and figured I would do Sept 1 – WLGW 21-Day Challenge.

I must admit it has been about a six months process to complete the web version. Talk about procrastination. I am the optimity of that word. I seem never to finish things I start as I allow life to get in the way. Well, I am happy to report, I made it this far. The lessons I completed recently when I jumped back in helped me to dig deeper and figure out why I do the things I do. Like, procrastinate.

Learning and reflection on life and my weight challenges, I can see how this is beyond the diet and exercise. I want to go from being a goal setter to a goal getter! I have examined and will need to continue to investigate the cost of achieving my health goals vs. the expense of not meeting them.

I accomplished this program online to figure out why I do what I do or shall I say why I do not do the things I should do. Submitting my weight loss goals to God is a new concept to me, and I understand that it is going to take prayer, patience, practice and more practice. I am done allowing my behaviors, habits, and mindset rob me of my dreams. I am ready to continue this journey and look forward to growing and nurturing my relationship with Christ.

Flora Contreras

Faith building and life changing!

The 21 day challenge has been an amazing beginning to a life long journey of health for me. For the first time in decades of dieting I have been invited and encouraged to find out what my struggles really are….its not just about food and exercise…its about my faith, my submission to God and calling out what is really stopping me from releasing weight. Cathy’s wisdom coupled with the support of a group of sisters in the Lord traveling this journey with me has truly been life changing and faith building. I have been blessed by this journey thus far! I cannot wait to see what each day holds.

Amber M.

Change is afoot

It has been great to connect with a wonderful, Spirit filled , bunch of Sista’s who are serious about getting their life on track for health and weight release. The best thing has been ‘meeting’ my accountability partner.
This whole process has been invaluable for getting my life back on track. It has really made me think and I’ve spent time evaluating and strategising to improve my own decision making when it comes to food choices, and most importantly, more time with the Lord and praying strategically.
This will be a slow but sure process and im sticking to it 🙂 I was already reducing calories so couldn’t take advantage of the initial weight loss due to burning glycogen but lost 5 pounds!! So happy 🙂 and that’s minus half a week as it’s Saturday today.
Thank you so much to everyone who is making this possible 🙂 Praise the Lord.

Lesley Ruth C

21-Day Challenge Feedback

I have been blessed and challenged by this program so far. I am developing an exercise routine and am starting even to enjoy more activity. I have not weighed myself yet because I am afraid the scale will show no progress and then I’ll be discouraged, so I’m going to wait until the waist on my jeans feels a bit loose. I just don’t want to stop the forward momentum right now. I love Cathy’s insights and appreciate her compassionate manner, and like hearing other people’s struggles and victories and advice, too!

Laura G

Positive changes

The biggest change I made was developing a habit of exercising 15 minutes a day. I didn’t focus on the weight loss, rather I focused on how I felt. Just 15 minutes a day made me feel stronger and leaner.

Heather C

Set up for Success

I have learned so much during the 21 Day Challenge. Small steps and committing this journey to God have been key and crucial. The video clips, the scriptures, and the sound guidance with action steps keeps this program alive and engaging. It was perfect for setting up a lifestyle for success. Thank you.

This Challenge has been a real eye opener for me. I am compelled now to move forward and continue! I am excited to experience the new me. I love Cathy’s simple but humorous videos. Many of them rang true to me and made me pray and think of how ridiclous I have been hanging onto old beliefs and the enemy’s lies. I am so greatful for this program.

Sharon S

Thankful

I read my Bible app daily. I had just finished a “Plan” with daily devotionals and scripture. I was browsing , looking for a new one and God lead me to Cathy’s!! Since the Lord lead me to it figured I better do it!! I have battled my weight forever! I have even had Lapband and lost 70 lbs but gained 40 back when I had a complication. Now here I am, still battling.
It’s amazing how much one can learn about oneself in 21 days. I knew I would binge eat and eat uncontrollably, and of coarse procrastinate. I had no idea how often I made excuses for myself! Nor did I have any idea of the anger and ,yes hatered in my heart.
I believe the Lord is working in my life threw this program. I already am eating less and am able to turn down foods. Like the mash potatoes video… Baby steps.

Thank you very much!!

From “I Can’t” to “I CAN!”

Wow! This 21 day challenge has been awesome! I think the biggest change has come in my thinking: I have totally changed from an “I can’t” mindset to an “I CAN!” mindset! I love that we were told to choose only one goal– that made success much more achievable. I set the goal to record my food every single day on the My Fitness Pal app. And I recorded EVERYTHING every.single.day. It has shed a lot of light on how much I have been eating! I lost 4.8 pounds during the 21 days. I truly thank God for bringing this plan into my life! Can’t wait to continue with the next course!

Finding strength and courage

Participating in the 21 day challenge helped me get back on track with physical activity. I have managed to cut out the extra calories that I would unknowingly consume throughout the day. I have also begin to feel somewhat more energy and hope to continue to see progression physically, mentally, and spiritually in the coming weeks.

Faith and weight loss..

I feel renewed in my commitment to myself and to God.

I really enjoyed the 21

I really enjoyed the 21 Day Challenge. I was a little reluctant at first because I had tried so many different things in the past with minimal success. This challenge was nothing like anything I have done before. It really opened my eyes to how many of the things that were stopping me from reaching my goals were only going to be overcome by prayer and God’s word. It also helped me with being honest with myself about the things I was doing to hinder my weight loss journey, such as procrastinating and speaking negatively about myself. This challenge has been a blessing, and I look forward to continuing with the program.

Shannon J

Thank you!

Thank you for your amazing ministry Cathy! I am so thankful that I found WLGW or maybe it found me? God works in mysterious ways! I just finished the 21 Day Challenge and I released 6.8 pounds which I am so thankful for. I had plans of releasing more but it wasn’t meant to be. Our ways are not God’s not ways so I am pleased with where I am. The daily videos help to keep me on track and having an accountability partner and an area that you can post your weight release in a private non judgemental setting is awesome! The sisters here are all amazing.

A New Beginning

I loved the 21 day challenge. It was focused and helped me see the holes in my thinking in regard to my own health and well being. I did lose 4#’s and exercised for 21 days. I can’t wait to begin the next phase.

Linda Knight

Thankful

I am thankful for finding this program. I am thankful for Cathy’s inspiring and hilarious videos. I am thankful for identifying the dream robbers that get in the way of my weight loss. I am looking forward to breakthrough 1!

Creating it a Time of Worship

This 21 day challenge was great for me. It allowed me to invite God into my workout regiment and eating habits and create it as a time of worship. Where now I am enjoying it (the workout more) and being able to spend that time with God. With the thought provoking questions, God has broke down some barriers that have been created and there has been a renewing of my mine. Being able to have a different perspective and using his words and verses as a tool. I have much more peace in mind when eating and more aware of why I’m eating…still have a ways to go but I already know there has been a change. Also, my mom and I are doing this together and I feel that is bringing us closer as well. 🙂

Spring Weeding

I have really found success in small steps with this group. I am overcoming eating more than I need and am much more aware of my emotional eating. I have lost 5# over the past 3 weeks and I am not discouraged by that. I feel God is doing a loving work within me. I am also finding I am way too busy and will need to set goals of weeding out some time killers in my life.

Helen Savage

It’s working!!

This has been great. I did actually release just a few pounds but more importantly it brought perspective. It has uncovered so many of the mental and emotional and spiritual issues that need working on if maintaining a healthy weight is EVER going to be a part of my life. And that’s what I’ve been looking for- I’ve know. I need to change ha it’s, not just diet. This is change from the inside out. Such a wonderful and REALISTIC approach. Really looking forward to the next challenge.

Amy Evans

My biggest change was to

My biggest change was to enjoy excercise! Incredible for me! I discovered the reason why I never excercised! Also I learned that to get to my goal I need to be patient, pray and practice! So I’m ready to start this beautiful process, no matter how long the way, if God is with me, who or what will be against?

Sinai De la Rosa

God is Good!!!

21 days completed, phew!! I think this is the most successful I’ve been on a weight loss journey. I have learned so much about myself, my body, food, my emotions, and strengthened my relationship with the Lord. I want to totally submit to Him and be obedient to what His plan is for me. I can’t wait to continue on this journey and learn more. To God be the Glory!!!!

Renda Welch

Learning to Live Loved

Really, there is no way to adequately thank you enough for this program and all Cathy pours into it for our sakes. Our Lord definitely led me to WLGW in my time of need and during these 21 days has shown me so much already within my own thinking that is enslaving. The practical steps each day force me to confront these and I already am noticing differences that give me hope that freedom is on the way.

Patty Fenton

Small steps

I loved this challenge. It helped me realize that I had been approaching my health the wrong way. It is not a private battle but one that needs God as your champion and fellow troops fighting the same battle you are. I look forward to continuing on my journey with loving supporters by my side.

Being Transformed in 2018

I completed the 21-Day Challenge in January 2018, and lost 13 lbs in approximately 3 and a half weeks. My goal was tracking my food intake using MyFitnessPal. Doing this really opened my eyes and helped me make healthier food choice. For the first time in my life, I felt like I knew what I needed to to do release excess weight. I knew what to eat and how much to eat. I also learned that consistent exercising contributed to my weight loss goal.

The 21-Day Challenge helped my to put a plan that included food preparation, portion control, food measurement and weighing myself regularly in place. Although I strayed from this victorious plan in February and March, I knew exactly what I had to do to get back on track when I decided to take the course called Breakthrough.

Now I am back on track with the principles and practices I learned in the 21 Day Challenge, and I am able to focus on the deeper issues that are being addressed in Breakthrough. My focus now is changing my heart as I continue applying all that I learned in the 21 Day Challenge.

Victory

I picked victory for my word for the year because God has told me that I will have victory over the ups and downs of this food thing. That food will become nourishment to me as God intended. A major victory in this is not giving up. At day 17 I ate some things I shouldn’t have which made me feel horrible emotionally and physically. I was down about it but instead of just calling it quits that day and saying “I will just start again tomorrow” I prayed and God let me see that it was time to start again now. So I didn’t go on the normal eat everything that I can because tomorrow I can’t have it again, I didn’t eat more, I didn’t eat after 7, I forgave myself and I felt victorious over another demon in this struggle. I am so thankful for this program. It has turned my life around in how I eat and how I think of food. I have been blessed and I am ready for the next challenge.

Brenda owens

This is exactly what I

This is exactly what I needed! I had started to feel that there was no point in trying to lose weight as every time I tried I failed. Now with a renewing of my faith and through seeking God first I am seeing the whole process in a completely different light. Thank you!

Joh Perry

God’s Way

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?” ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭6:19‬ ‭NASB‬‬

I forgot that,made my life all about me, ate to overcome the crisis of the day and removed the real reason for being on this earth at this time… God’s plan

The 21 Day Challenge put me in the passenger seat and helped me get back to the basics of my accountability for my health and spiritual wellbeing by doing each day Gods Way! Thank you for helping me get on track to health!

Susan Watson

Great Course

Great course. I completed this prior to your migrating data to the new website. I would like to move forward. I was in the middle of breakthrough or almost completed breakthrough. I would like to re-register for the new website, but, my paypal account was drafted on 4/7. How can I re register without paying again?

Breaking Through the Wall

This program helped me to break through a wall. I’ve tried to build healthy habits in the past but never took such a deeply spiritual approach to losing weight and getting healthier. I recognized my excuse making. I recognized the emotional eating. This program has been instrumental in helping me to improve other areas of my life, and I’m excited about how are I can go with God!

Erin Stewart

I wanted to use this

I wanted to use this as a jump start to exercise and weight loss. After the first day I asked God to show me what’s keeping me stuck. I lost 6 lbs and then gained them back. But what I did learn was what triggered me to emotionally eat. Learning the root of it all, plucking it out and being free from past hurts. My goal was to not eat after 7 pm. It wasn’t my first choice but it just ‘happened’ that way. I have kept up with that goal and now I don’t even crave late night snacks! Thank you Cathy for the 21 day challenge and free info. You are truly a blessing! Much love from Texas ? Crystal

Crystal B Castro

God had to do a different thing in me

Hi Cathy, you came to mind and I just wanted to say hello and to thank you for your awesome work. Even though I took a different path, so many things that I learned with you (and the group), from you gals, from the Holy Spirit have helped me. I’m being changed and it’s a miracle!

Lol, I don’t track food, I don’t weigh myself very much at all, I don’t have a workout routine (though I’m exercisingmore and am getting stronger) and I’ve lost almost 30 lbs in the year. That makes zero conventional sense! God had to do a different thing in me, I suppose…but I wanted to share that it was only after meeting and working with you and the ladies that a breakthrough happened! Thank you again ?

Geri P

An eye opener and a wake up call!

Thank you, Cathy, for opening up my eyes to the truth through the 21 day challenge! It really helped me to refocus on God and His guidance on my journey to health and happiness. I have already lost between 4 and 5 pounds!

Tarina Els

Success with God

This month I have lost 9pounds, 2inches off my stomach and I’m .3 away from having lost 2% body fat.
Praying against temptation was done often, not eating past 8 was tough but I made it through and to be honest each lesson had its own nugget of helpfulness. I shared with the ladies at women’s group what I’ve been doing & they may just pick it up sometime in the spring 🙂
Remember to use God as your first defense and not a last resort.
God Bless ♡♡

Candice Lurvey

Thank you for this 21 Day Challenge

Thank you for this 21 day Challenge and your Meal Plan book, I did a weight loss program before but on a only-what–God-grows, you-could-eat. But as many of us, I fell of the wagon and gained everything again. Even now I did not reached my goal but I lost weight.
I counted my calories most days, I didn`t eat after 7 pm (though sometimes it was 7.30 pm). Exercise I had to skip because of my foot surgery but hope to start soon with 15 min of exercise. On top of my 10.000 steps when I`m at full time work. But it is the beginning of my journey, and have to keep that in mind step by step, day by day, and enjoy life thinking of my self first. Once again Thank you.

Jolanda Molenaar

This is an AWESOME Challenge

I would like to thank God for putting this Challenge in my path! I loved the fact it didn’t start nor ended as a competition with others! It was truly about getting to see self and creating a closer relationship with our Heavenly Father and learning about the deep rooted obstacles I didn’t realize at the surface that gets in the way of accomplishing my goals and allowing the Holy Spirit to take control and lead me in all areas in my life. This is an AWESOME challenge!! Thank You Jesus!! And thank you Cathy!

Christina Carroll

A refreshing New Beginning

Thank you Cathy for this inspiring, encouraging 21 day challenge program. It has helped me greatly, I feel refreshed, renewed. I praise the Lord for the wonderful work that you do encouraging women, and men if they want to join in in overcoming weight problems. It has renewed my self esteem. I have lost approx 5 lbs over the past 21 days, and I feel inspired to continue until I reach my goal, in July. I’m well on my way! Thank you so much. God bless, Pam D.

Pam Del Piano-Davies

Knowledge is power

It would seem that we should know some of these simple things holding us back from weight release but going through the last 21 days a lot has been exposed. All the areas in my life that I was holding onto and didn’t know to let go and give it to God. Thank you Cathy Morenzie for exposing the ugly truth about weight loss and dieting. I’m working to adapt a new lifestyle for my current and future health! I’ve released about 5lbs in the challenge and it feels great. I’ve also released inches as well. Even though it’s a small start I can see the results already!

Melissa Williams

Gained or Lose Weight?

I have enjoyed this new journey with Healthy By Design. I have done all the challenges, I have stuck to not eating after dinner, I have done at least 15 min of exercise with or without the amazing exercise videos Cathy provides, I have documented my food eaten on my weight watchers app, but most importantly, I have spent a lot more time with the Lord than I have done in a very long time. So much so, that I don’t know if i gained or lose weight because this time around, I did not want to jump on the scale. I focused on getting myself accustomed to this renewed focus on God’s word, as well as, this new life style change. Now that I have finished the 21 day journey its time to step it up a bit. With continued time with God, & being familiar with how my days should go, I am definitely ready to press on & Move Forward to the next Breakthrough step.
Thank You for this experience. I am so happy to know now that I can talk to God about this aspect of my life without feeling vain because of it. It has been an amazing start to a new & much needed change.

Nicole Moore

I Can Do It

This whole 21 day challenge with God has opended my eyes to a lot. It has brought me closer to God. I cant just pick out one day that stood out or impacted me the most because they all did. These last 21 days have brought me to a deeper understanding and have taught me to NEVER give up the fight.

Jennifer A Johnson

A New Beginning with God Leading Me!

I thank God for you Cathy! Through this 21 Day challenge, you have given me insights on the reasons why releasing weight And being healthy is my right as a Child of God! So since God wants me to be my best Me for Him, I have to submit fully to him and sacrifice some things. Here are my takeaways: 1. Exercise is apart of my life daily. During the 21 day challenge I had a stomach virus and was unable to exercise in the gym but I did your 20 minute exercise video in my bed and that was my breakthrough point! As I was determined to get the movement in and I praise God for this! So my next steps: I invested in your 2 books and with them I’m going to sign up for the 21 Day challenge again and add the goal of writing down everything I eat and no more than 100 gms of carbs a day! Thanks again for everything Cathy oh and yes I reached my goal of releasing one lb. per week and through the 3 weeks I lost 3 lbs. I am rejoicing by getting ready to go to the ymca and it’s only 3 degrees here in Fishers, Indiana ?❄️!

Jennifer Botts

I have released 110 lbs. Glory to God!

“As of April 2018, I have released 110pounds.  Glory to God!”  The 21-day Challenge was my kickstart, but I really learned long-term strategies through the Breakthrough program.

Jo G.

Refocus. Rebuild.

The last 21 days have been amazing! It was God’s sovereign way to help me REFOCUS on my commitment to drop the weight. After losing 75lbs, I found myself in a rut…with another 50lbs left to release. Cathy’s wisdom and encouragement has me back on track. With the Lord’s help, I am ready to REBUILD this temple for my good and His glory. Anyone who is serious about being fit for their kingdom purpose needs to sign-up for the challenge TODAY!

Sonjia Upshaw

‘Weight Loss, God’s Way’ has been a huge factor in beginning a process of healing and restoration in my life.

I have completed Breakthrough twice now. When I began Breakthrough for the first time, I was at a place in my life where I had struggled for a very long time with food. I felt very alone in that struggle and knew no one who really understood or cared. I had particularly been addicted to sugar and carbohydrates. My weight had fluctuated up and down for well over a decade, perhaps more, and I had tried many, many different weight loss programs and plans; some biblically based, some not. I had prayed for years about it and struggled, and though there was progress at times and I had certainly acquired more knowledge, nothing had permanently changed and I would just keep coming back to the same place over and over again: Frustrated, bound and ashamed. I really was at a place of despair that I would ever be free of this. I didn’t know what would be different about ‘Breakthrough’ and was afraid of putting more money into something else that may not work! I prayerfully considered whether or not to do Breakthrough, but with my husband’s encouragement I signed up to take the course.

Breakthrough has changed my whole perspective. It has caused me to think about the lifestyle goals that the Lord has for me. It has given me vision where there was none, it has helped me to see the reasons for how and why there needs to be lifestyle change and has shown me how important it is that I take responsibility for a healthy lifestyle, yet giving the Lord complete control of my health. Breakthrough has given me the tools and foundational principles to help me do this, and the support of a community, and friendships with other Christian ladies who understand and go through the same, or similar struggles. I am no longer alone in this.

But, even greater than these things has been the ‘Breakthrough’ in my heart and mind. The Lord has shown me who He made me to be, so that I am finally beginning to reach a place where I can say and believe the words from Psalm 139, “I praise You for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” My life has been one of striving, working to try and please God and others, always thinking ‘I’ had to do this or that, that ‘I’ just wasn’t good enough or that I needed to summon up some motivation and will power in myself, but that only led me to rock bottom! I do not believe that real, lasting transformation can happen apart from the Lord. I have come to a place where I have been able to fully receive, not just know in my head, the truth that God loves me, and that it is by His grace that I have been saved, it is not of myself. His love and His grace are unconditional for me and no amount of striving will change that. So I must cease striving and know that He is God, I must let go and rest in Him.

At my natural weight I am around 126-130lbs, but have fluctuated up and down like a yo-yo between 126lbs and 170lbs. Some of my family and friends over the years have often laughed at me when I have said I am trying to lose weight, as I most often come within a so called healthy weight range, and other than frequent fatigue, headaches, other aches and pains, brain fog and various other ailments associated with poor lifestyle habits, I don’t currently have an illness or specific health issue. But little do they understand what I’ve experienced or been through, or the immense inner battles that I have had, and that I face many of the same struggles as others who may have more weight to lose than I do. They have not seen the fear and anxiety I go through. They do not know the self-hatred that I’ve had and the shame I have about my body. They do not know of my emotional struggles, or the detrimental relationship I have had with food. I think the only reason I have not reached higher than 44lbs greater than my natural weight, is that I have gained weight, then gone full force at another diet or program and come all the way back down in weight, over and over, and over again.

Through ‘Breakthrough’ (and continuing involvement in Haven), the Lord has done some serious ‘open heart surgery’ on me. There was a specific trauma early in my adult life that left me wounded and scarred and had varying consequences. Unknown to me, whilst much healing had taken place, many things still lay buried deep underneath, and I was affected in ways I did not even recognize. ‘Breakthrough’ was a huge step in an ongoing process that God used to open up those wounds, showing me that the pain was still there after more than 23 years. He caused me to face some things head on and revealed to me many things that He wanted to heal. He showed me fears and hurts, my loneliness, my habitual thinking patterns and lies that I believed. He showed me where my life was out of balance, where I have not been living according to my values and showed me how who He has really made me to be had been quenched by all this junk! I could now see that my food addiction had been the result of going to food for comfort, to dull the pain, to give me company when lonely and to make me feel happy. Food had become my best friend (yet was ironically really my enemy and was controlling me).

‘Breakthrough’ has been a huge factor in beginning a process of healing and restoration in my life.  When I took Breakthrough for the second time it was with a new perspective. This time, it reinforced to me who I am in Christ, how He has set me free and how He is renewing and restoring me and bringing me gently back into alignment with who He has made me to be, I was drawn into deeper worship and love for Him. I could do this course over and over again, and keep on learning and being reminded of things I can so often forget. I have not ‘arrived’ I am still progressing bit by bit and the Lord continues to transform me, with the renewing of my mind by His word, His truth. There are days of discouragement, or set back for some reason or another and I can so easily revert to old thinking patterns and habits, but I know to run back to the Lord and to His word, and have learnt so much in ‘Breakthrough’ that now better equips me to face the challenges.

Breakthrough takes a commitment and is hard work, but what is ten weeks in the scope of a lifetime? Our time and money are resources given to us by the Lord and this has been an investment of both that He definitely wanted me to make and without which I would still be bound, instead of free to live a new life.

John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”

 I lost 14 lbs and I’m  drawing closer to My Lord and Savior.

I found your 21 day challenge on someone’s Facebook page and I have completed it as of yesterday.  I lost 14 lbs and I’m  drawing closer to My Lord and Savior.
The biggest impact the challenges had on me was that it pushed me to  realize that I  can change, that I could break down habits that I have had for years.
Cecile P. , Rosenberg, Texas

ALL the videos were vital and helpful.

I love that the videos were super funny yet drove home a vital point. Thank you Cathy for putting this 21 Day Challenge program together and offering it as free. I don’t think I would have risked failing if it was not free. I am happy- no ecstatic – to say that I have reached my goal for the 21 days which were:
1) Exercise 15 minutes/day
2) Be disciplined in prayer, diet and exercise and the challenge
3) Be steadfast

Yay!!??

And as an added bonus…. I lost 10.9 lbs?.

For those ladies continuing to Breakthrough- see you soon!

Gerri V

Where to start, so much

Where to start, so much is in my mind. I enjoyed this challenge so much, looked forward to it each day. Most important is is God based. He wants us to be healthly and happy. This program made me happy, and down 10 pounds.
Cathy made it fun, but most important she got in my head, not like other programs.
The video’s were fun but, each a good message.

Big thank you to Cathy, I look forward to continue this journey.
See you in Breakthrough.

Donnie G

This program has been just what I needed.

I have been struggling with weight for so many years that I just about gave up on any hope of conquering it. I don’t like to give up so it was so defeating. I have struggled with emotional eating and starting over every Monday. During the challenge I started over soon as I slipped up. The first week I actually gained some weight but I committed to this and prayed and I lost 8 lbs total from my high point. Thank yo so much. I feel so different now about this process and can’t wait to continue with breakthrough. Praise God & thank you Cathy. Your videos were spot on. I feel like my eyes are wide open now!!!!

Becky

The videos are all great.

The videos are all great. I like the one with the funky glasses that distorted Cathy’s view of herself. I know that the way I look at myself is different than how God views me. I only missed exercising for fifteen minutes on one day. I was surprised how determined I became as the 21 days progressed.

Martha

Confidence!

I have become more confident in my ability to be disciplined about snacking and over eating. I have been faithful about considering my eating and not simply filling my mouth for comfort. I am looking forward to growing more fit and taking on more physical activity beyond walking.

Gail Hein

Thanks

Completed the 21 Day Challenge and thankful for all the teaching and support! God bless!

Maria Williams

Weight loss With God is amazing

I want to begin by saying thank you Lord for providing Cathy with this vision. Through you she is inspiring people to dig deep in finding the root that keeps us from being healthy and happy! I have enjoyed this plan! I feel like I’m in a better place mentally and physically! I have this glow! I feel amazing! I have lost several inches and a few pounds! How exciting! Thank you all who work behind the scenes to make this possible. I pray God would continue to bless each of you! Thank you again!

MaryJane McGowan

I was blessed by the 21 day challenge in which I released 10 pounds, and feel as though I have finally found a solution to keep the weight off.

I lost 14 lbs. in the 21 day Challenge and God has really shown me the miracles that He can work if I allow him to do it.

I lost 14 lbs. in the 21 day Challenge and God has really shown me the miracles that He can work if I allow him to do it. It is amazing that He can control my appetite, make me want vegetables, and even help me enjoy exercise. It is amazing!!

Bobbi from Arlington, TX.

The hilarious videos gently pricked my soul with conviction, and the encouragement.

I’ll have to watch the Celebration recording, but so grateful for the 21 day challenge, the hilarious videos that gently pricked my soul with conviction, and the encouragement. I had prayed for something to keep me accountable while my firstplace4health was off for one month, and this was God’s gift. Can’t wait to pass it on to others, loved the books, the website is wonderful.

I’ve lost 70 lbs with Weight Loss, God’s Way

I just wanted to send  you a praise report, although I was not able to be actively involved in conference calls. I have lost 70 pounds after doing the 21 day challenge and breakthrough programs and for a total weight loss since July of last year I have lost 100 pounds.  I wanted to say thank you for being there as an encouragement on this journey.

I reluctantly started the 21-day challenge…

I reluctantly started the 21–day challenge back in mid-September. And I do mean reluctantly. I signed up willing to give it a chance, but when I saw that I had to pick between not eating after 7, exercising a little each day or tracking food, I almost quit. I had already cut late night eating (to no avail) and already exercised 3-4 times per week, so neither of those would really be a stretch. The last option was tracking food and I absolutely did NOT want to do that. I had done that as part of a previous diet and felt restricted/limited/trapped. Who chooses to feel like that?! Then it had to be a specific tracking method…I was already using a different app and hated the thought of starting over.
Thankfully, I decided to use the challenge for what it was…a challenge. I read each email, watched each video, posted on fb and asked God to change me.
I lost 3 pounds in week 1, but no pounds in week 2. How disappointing. I almost quit (again). I figured I could finish the last week. it certainly couldn’t hurt. Guess what? Another 3 pounds lost for a total of 6 gone during he challenge weeks!
During the challenge, we had to set realistic goals. Little bitty goal: finish the challenge. (I did it!) Longer goal: lose 30 pounds by May 9th (based on 1 pound per week plus cushion for “off” weeks). And I dared set my ultimate goal: 100 pounds by October 27, 2018 (based on the same 1 pound per week plus cushion).
This morning when I tracked my weight, I saw my progress screen as a little celebration of how far I had come in the weeks since the challenge and I knew now was the time to share and say Thank You! (see attached)
My weight loss has been consistent (17 pounds as of today!) and I plan to reach my longer goal way ahead of schedule. I actually love tracking what I eat, as I feel in control and am consiously making food decisions rather than letting whatever happen.
Thank you, Cathy, for sharing what you’ve learned.
Rachel

The WLGW Challenge lessons have motivated me to join your Breakthrough program.

Cathy, I went through the 21 day challenge, but did not “participate” as I should have. The lessons have motivated me to join your Breakthrough program. I just want to say that I have never seen such well thought out information with principles that go deep to root causes like the information you share on your website and through the challenge!  But the best part is your humble,calm, teaching spirit that is so encouraging!  You are a dear, and I look forward to learning from you and taking this journey to health and weight loss.   Thank you so very much!

In the last 21 days my fasting glucose went down 72 points and I lost 6lbs!

I am celebrating that in the last 21 days my fasting glucose went down 72 points and I lost 6#’s! To God be the glory! Could not have done it without LOTS of conversations with Jesus! I was addicted to peanut butter cups and I have not had ANY in almost a month. That’s a miracle, Friends! I love it when my Master takes over and SAVES me from myself. Cathy, to stay motivated, I kept going back to my list of costs associated with NOT meeting my goals. That woke me up! I came up with 20 regrets…ranging all the way from disobedience to wasting money on meds to ugly swimsuits.  🙂 I have not, yet, arrived, but I am praising Jesus all the way to my promised land. Amen. Praying for each of you

Lost 10 lbs and reduced my blood pressure to normal.

Last year at this time I was at the doctors and my BP was a little elevated. I monitored it through the fall and winter and it stayed prehypertensive. I have released 10 pounds since my first WLGW challenge in January. Last week I checked my BP and it was normal!

Having God walk with me through this journey is making a BIG difference.

I am trying to figure out why I sabotage my reaching goals. I am a life time member of a weigh organization and the minute I reached my goal years ago, I put weight back on. A year and half I lost 100 pounds through another organization and the minute I was ten pounds to my goal I started putting the weight back on. I gained 40 of the pounds back. I have always had a low self esteem and was raised like I could never do anything right. I was never good enough or thought that. I was never good enough. Maybe that is why! Like I feel that I don’t deserve to win. This group is helping me grow closer to God and to see how special I am in God’s eyes. God is my father and He loves me so very much. Having God walk with me through this journey is making a BIG difference. Thank you Cathy. I am getting real with myself. I have lost 15 of those 40 pounds since on this program. This is my second time going through it and it is making a difference, a BIG difference.

For the first time I can see a change in my life that is leading to the healthy lifestyle

I crave sugar when I am tired. Eat out of stress, sadness, because it is there, do not want to waste it. Cathy, this series of videos are life changing! Thank you for caring enough to bless each of us with the chance of renewed healthy lives! For the first time I can see a change in my life that is leading to the healthy lifestyle I have desired for many many years. I have a long ways to go, but with God’s strength, love and wisdom there WILL be victory!

Loving the journey so far. It is not perfect but I am learning and seeing progress.

So glad I started this challenge. Just the day before I committed to tracking food with Lose it. First day “bombed” but it really opened my eyes to amount of food I should eat vs the truckload I was eating. I struggled with the app as well. Day one on here I moved to myfitnesspal. Fantastic. Easy app. Day 2…Still didn’t perfect a food day, but so much more aware of food choices…more  nutritious food to stretch the total food in my calorie budget. Then you asked us for specific sacrifices/cost. I moved my bedtime to 9:30 and committed to enter all my meals/exercise first thing in morning. I tweaked as day went on but changes meant costs elsewhere so they were very limited. It also “forced” me to do the exercise planned because meals/food choices were counting on it. Success. I believe had I not counted the cost and committed to going to bed earlier and plan day ahead…I would have kept struggling and given up tracking. I love specific goals and am excited to see what else you are going to challenge us with. Loving the journey so far. It is not perfect but I am learning and seeing progress. Praise God for His goodness to me. Praise God for His wisdom given to godly women gifted with  encouragement. Thank you Cathy for using your gift.

This challenge is what I need to readjust my thinking and behavior.

 I am growing more and more in God. I never truly involved Him in the process, but now I see that’s where I was falling short. This challenge is what I need to readjust my thinking and behavior.

This is about becoming more obedient to God’s word.

This is my second challenge.  I’ve released 25 pounds. For me this is about becoming more obedient to God’s word & being tranformed into the person God intends me to be.

I lost 21 pounds after joining the Weight Loss, God’s Way Challenge

The process may be painful but the end result is worth it.

Cathy, I had to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate how you’ve listened to the voice of God in leading women from all over the world to rethink our relationship with our heavenly Father, food and ourselves. They say it takes 21 days to form a habit and I think I finally believe that after this challenge.
I’ve lost 8 pounds since the challenge started but more importantly, I think I’ve gained a better prospective on how I should look at food and how it affects my body.
I never expected you to take me as deep as you did with the daily videos and challenges but it was so necessary. Like a root canal or surgery, the process may be painful but the end result is worth it. Most importantly, you impressed upon me how vital it is to put my weight and relationship with food before God, just like I do everything else. It finally clicked: yes, He cares about this too!
Please continue to do whatever the Lord instructs you to do in leading women to the healthiest version of themselves that God always ordained for them to be 🙂

I can feel my spirit becoming lighter

This challenge is so good at helping us to do what we (really I) don’t normally do, and that is regular reflection. I can feel my spirit become lighter as I engage in this practice every day and the Lord impressed upon me to keep on in it.

My weight loss journey has been revolutionized by having been a member of Weight Loss, God’s Way.

There is so much I learned, that it’d be difficult to narrow it down to even a few things.  But the reason my journey has completely changed as a result of Breakthrough is I found a new “why”.  I learned that it’s actually not my battle to fight, and though I have choices to make, I don’t have to make them alone or on my own will power.  God made me, loves me, he bought me with a price, redeemed me, took up residence inside my heart, and expects me to take care of his temple — and he’s right there to help me!  I learned that I am not my own and that I don’t get to decide what’s good for me if I want to be in God’s will.  God wants my whole heart and he wants me to put down anything that gets in the way of me giving it to him – and for me, some foods can do that.

Through relationship with him, God’s power is changing me from the inside-out, and I’m becoming more and more free from this thing that plagued me for as long as I can remember.  I have the healthiest perspective on my body and myself that I’ve had in my entire life, and that’s a direct result of finding this group.  Shame over my body, over my habits, over my human imperfection are on their way out.  Grace and trust are on their way in, in ever-increasing quantities.  I couldn’t be happier.

I went from a size 26 to a size 14!

“In January I was wearing a size 26. This weekend my daughter took me shopping for an outfit for my birthday. I got into a size 14. I never dreamed I would see that size again. God is good.

Today is my birthday. I have no desire for a cake. I have no desire to be taken out to eat for my birthday (this is huge for me!). My desire is to continue to grow in God.

I am continually grateful for Cathy Morenzie and Lose Weight God’s Way. For God choosing me, and not because He had to. For Him never letting me go (long story with this one). For Him being more than enough. For you guys in this program.

I could go on and on. GOD IS SO GOOD AND THE BATTLE IS HIS. Hugs.”

simple, focused, Christ-centered plan that is full of support

“I started my weight loss journey with Cathy and ‘Weight Loss, God’s Way’ in March 2014. I started at the highest weight I’ve ever been (just over 232 lbs). I was miserable and had tried countless diets. What I have found in Cathy’s plan is a simple, focused, Christ-centered plan that is full of support! Since I started, I have dropped just over 35 lbs and am finally squeaking under the 200 lb mark.”

Laura R.

Thank you so much for not giving up on me.

I started with you around 230 lbs and now I am floating between 145 and 147. I am now paying it forward by working with a young woman to help her get her mind straight. She has known me over the years and is enthusiastic about how I’ve reached my goal. I have given her a copy of your book and meet with her monthly to encourage.

I know that my BMI was close to 40 when I started and is now in the 25s. I was taking two perscriptions for HBP and am working my way off the second one. I was initially resistant to carrying my food; now I have at least an apple in my purse and carry my food with me to work daily.

My back doesn’t hurt all the time and although my arthritis kicks up, I have a new friend, energy. I didn’t realize how little energy I had until I finally got some daily. My doctors are singing my praises and people whisper to me” did you have the surgery?”.

The feeling that I am working within God’s plan for me is huge. It is a blessing to not be ashamed of what I see in the mirror. It is a bigger blessing to be able to walk with people 20 or 30 years my junior and be able to keep up.

Thank you so much for not giving up on me.

Now that I am at the weight, I want to remain with the group to reinforce what I have learned and protect my loss by continuing to grow, eat right, and work out appropriately for my age and limitations.

Sometimes I get misty thinking about the goodness of the Lord and the beautiful people He sent to help me. Thank you so much!!!!

A Detox for the Heart and Mind

While I didn’t participate in detoxing sugar, going through these lessons were impactful. Learning and practicing how to capture unhealthy thoughts and replace them with God’s truth is now something I apply to my every day life. The lessons were full of inspiration and balanced with challenge. The daily prayers and questions to journal caused me to stop and “take inventory” of what I was learning and how to put it into practice.

The 21 Day Challenge has Changed My Life

“This challenge has changed my life!!! I often feel like no one cares if I lose the rest of this weight or not but Cathy cares and so do the other people in our group. I have felt prayed for every day! I met some amazing new friends who pray for me and with me! I had been on a plateau for almost a year, losing and gaining the same 10 pounds over and over again. I am now losing weight again! Every principal is based on scripture. You MUST take this life changing challenge!!!!”

Harriette C.

I’m Changing. I Have a New Attitude.

“As I saw myself in a glass mirror today at work, I said to myself. I love me. I’m changing. I have a new attitude. I am training hard, 5 – 6 days/wk and making better lifestyle health/eating choices. And I’m loving the process! I’m loving my life. I can finally say that. Not because I’ve reached my goals… but because I’m in the process, the trenches of achieving my goals. And that’s what I love!!! Ha! Thanks Cathy Morenzie I’m finally in that zone. God does answers prayers!”

I am seeing food and exercise in a new light

I just finished the 21 day challenge. Through Cathy’s Weight Loss, God’s Way book, the word of God, prayer and the Facebook community I am seeing food and exercise in a new light. I lost 7 pounds during the challenge and would encourage you to give it a try.

Jean Paris

The 21 Day Challenge Gave Me Daily Ammunition

“What the 21 day challenge did for me most, was to understand that my value doesn’t come from what I think but what I believe. “The Lord is my Shepherd, I SHALL NOT WANT.” This truth opened me up to understanding that Information with Revelation = Transformation! The limiting beliefs I have allowed into my life that are contrary to what God’s plan is for my life have truly been “dream stealers.” The 21 day challenge gave me daily ammunition to fight against the mediocrity of my plan versus God’s plan for me. The journey has just begun but I understand now, the best is yet to come! Thank you Jesus!!”

Rhonda Cook

The 21 Day Challenge was a Game Changer

“The 21 Day Challenge was a game changer for me. It was a great restart to a journey that I wasn’t certain that I want to go on anymore. I had gotten to a place where I was tired of trying every weight-loss fad or trend that came along. I was skeptical about this, but as the days went by I recognized this as the very thing that I was missing through every other start and stop. Now I am better equipped to stick with it and see this to the end and actually realize my goals.”

LaTasha Dorsey

The Perfect Way to Stay on Track

“The 21 Day Challenge was the perfect way to ” stay on track” as it kept me accountable.  I love the fact that God is present in this endeavor and always kept first. The activities also were relevant and in keeping with all of the encouragement along the way. The 21 Day Challenge is a program that bears repeating in every aspect.”

Ruth Oliver

I Need Practical Advice

“I loved the 21 Day challenge and the Weight Loss, God’s Way book and recipe book. I am a practical person, and I need practical advice. Rather then merely talk platitudes, Cathy Morenzie identified specific shortcomings and bad habits that were standing in my way of managing my health. Using biblical principals, Cathy challenged me to honestly face my role in my previous failures and bad habits. While I rely on God for my strength and hope, I am also making conscious choices to live more healthfully. I eat more fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats, far fewer processed foods, and I am exercising every day — and enjoying it! My mindset has shifted from seeing diet and exercise as a burden to seeing gorgeous whole foods and loving movement as blessings and as a way to honor God’s gift to me of a strong body and good health. I am down 17 pounds in the past three months and plan to continue on this path until I reach a healthy weight.Thank you, Cathy, for keeping it real and honest, and for helping me to see the potential I have in Christ. You are a blessing to me!”

Meg Anderson

I Wish That it Could Have Gone Longer!

“I joined and started the 21 day challenge the day I moved house and started a new job! It was going to be a challenge to commit to the challenge! But I am so glad I did! In fact it was just what I needed to help me get back on track on my weight loss journey. I really enjoyed receiving the daily email which motivated me to dig deeper into the why and how I have struggled previously to look at this process in a way that will be life changing. I wish that it could have gone longer!

Denise Ashby

The 21 Day Challenge Really Challenged My Thinking

“I have been gaining weight or maintaining for 9 months, and I was getting anxious and frustrated. I took the 21 day challenge, and so many things resonated with me. The challenge really challenged my thinking. I made commitments, and with God’s help have kept them. I lost 6 pounds, it’s not a huge amount, but it’s a great start, and I look forward to when I can be at my healthy weight and say, look what the Lord has done! I am so grateful to the lord and to Cathy & Preston for the challenge, wisdom, and just plain fun approach to this difficult topic. I would highly recommend buying the book and recipe book as well so you can keep doing it after the 21 day challenge is over.”

Debra Davis

It Changed My Life

“The 21 day challenge changed my life. I have suffered the from sin of overeating and yo-yo dieting for years. I am an otherwise active and outgoing person but no one who knows me would ever suspect my constant struggle with food. Through this challenge I learned to break through the chains that were holding me back and focus on God’s Promises and how he wants me to live the best possible life. The lessons are clear and focused, with some great humor thrown in. It’s a very enjoyable program. Cathy is a wise and engaging teacher. As a result of being faithful and transparent, I lost about 10 pounds during the 21 day challenge, and am still “releasing weight” as I continue to study God’s word. The bible teaches us to seek God first in all things to receive his blessings (Matthew 6:33). The 21 day challenge has opened my eyes to this and other truths (or should i say lies that hold me back). The program continues to bless me.”

Lauri Williamson

Learning That God is Enough

I learned so much more through The 31-Day Sugar Detox than how to eliminate unhealthy sugar from my diet! I learned that my relationship with God is the only thing that is satisfying. Not certain foods, not things or trips, not earthly success – none of these things will give me complete satisfaction. I learned that the foods God has given us, like fruits and vegetables, really do taste good, and I don’t need cookies, donuts, or brownies to find out what “sweet” tastes like. I also learned to replace negative thoughts that I’ve fought with most of my life with powerful thoughts from Scripture. An example is the feeling of anxiety (which often plagued me): I now imagine God with both of my hands in His, saying Isaiah 41:10 to me: “Do not fear for I am with you, do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand”. Thank you Cathy, for the work you did to make this 31-day journey possible. And thank you, my sisters (and fellow travelers) for your support!

Ena Gunnink

Life-changing!

After more than 60 years of struggling with my weight and trying to change my eating habits, I’ve not only been able to change my eating habits, but most importantly, I’m now living my life verse: Romans 12:1 “And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice–the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.” The Lord is using the sugar detox to help me to cross into my promise land of living healthy lifestyle for Him–the desire of my heart. Thank you Cathy and Preston, and all my dear sisters in the Lord. I love you all.

Detox for body and soul

I chose to concentrate on detoxing my body of only one sugary habit I endulged in daily. I found that as I progressed through the daily reading my soul was being detoxed in a bigger way. I found one phrase in the readings every single day that I carried with me and repeated as needed. A very satisfying 31 days.
