Remnant Fellowship – “Couple Loses Over 100 Pounds” – You Can Overcome Season 5, Episode 10

Have you struggled for years to go all the way with losing your excess weight? Do you ever feel stuck and wonder if you really can be done with overeating and greed for food? In this episode of the “You Can Overcome” show, host Gwen Shamblin interviews a couple who have a combined weight loss of over 100 pounds! Watch to hear John and Delia Weber’s story of finally overcoming the pull of food indulgence and gaining a whole new lease on life. Although they had been through WeighDown and experienced significant weight loss, had been members of Remnant Fellowship for ten years and attended Church regularly, they still held back from giving God their all. This lack of total devotion and connection to God resulted in emptiness and curses, including gaining their weight back, restless sleep, and much disorder in their home.

During this year’s celebration of the Remnant Feast of Tabernacles, both Delia and John felt a deep renewed conviction that it was time to completely devote their lives to God. They sought Godly counsel from Church leaders, got accountability partners for ongoing encouragement, and immediately signed up for WeighDown Bible classes, as these were the classes that had originally led them to freedom from self-indulgence and overeating.

The positive results were practically immediate! Delia could hardly believe how quick the weight loss happened. “It practically melted off!” she described. John experienced rapid weight loss as well, dropping 21 pounds in just seven weeks. Even more significant than the weight loss, this newfound connection and commitment to God has brought profound changes in their hearts, minds, and entire outlook on life. Where there once was guilt and confusion, now they have joy and clear minds. The former sleepless nights have turned to peaceful sleep. They even report that their children have become more well behaved and that their school work became miraculously lighter.

If you are searching for the best way to lose weight and looking for help from God for the pain, confusion, and guilt in your life, then this episode of the You Can Overcome show is for you. Be encouraged! You too can overcome.
