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 G

Hi! My name is Ena. I often get asked where my name came from so I'll start by saying that I was born in The Netherlands. I have lived most of my life in Michigan, and have been married to my great husband for 46 years. We have 2 children and 7 grandchildren (6 boys, 1 girl). I'm a nurse by profession. I have known Jesus since I was a little girl, and gave my life to Him fully when I was 16 years old. I have struggled with being overweight since my son was born 38 years ago. I have tried about every weight loss program imaginable except surgery, with either little success or with some success, only to gain the weight back. I went through the Breakthrough Program in early 2017. It was here that I learned that losing weight, keeping weight off, and maintaining good health is not about sheer will power! I learned that how I handle food can be connected to deep seated emotions, and that my relationship with my Heavenly Father is so important to caring for my body well and living a healthy lifestyle. I find the weight being released gradually, and this is how it should be as I learn more about myself and God's unconditional love for me. I love how Cathy teaches every lesson using Scripture, and I'm so grateful to God for leading me to the Breakthrough Program! I look forward to continuing this journey with all of you.
