Remnant Fellowship Presents – How to Have the Right Body Image – Season 10, Episode 6

Remnant Fellowship Presents – How to Have the Right Body Image … Are you completely exhausted with worrying about your looks, trying every diet known to man, only to fail once again? Gwen Shamblin, the pioneer of faith-based weight loss and host of the popular online “You Can Overcome” show, interviews two women—Dana Cohen and Denise Thomas—who for years tried all of the well known weight loss diets including Weight Watchers, Atkins and nutrisystem…and yet they never successfully lost all of their excess weight. The resulting pain and frustration of being overweight hindered every aspect of their lives, causing such physical ailments as high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, insomnia and hypothyroidism. Both women further described how their physical conditions contributed to depression and an inability to effectively parent their children. Dana feared for her six children, worried that they would soon grow up without a mother, knowing that her obesity would eventually cut her life short. Denise admittedly relied on the mainstream “wisdom” of prescription antidepressants to get her through the day and sleeping pills to get her through the night.

Fast forward to what Dana and Denise attribute to being intervention from God…when both women finally found Weigh Down Ministries, the faith-based weight loss program founded by Gwen Shamblin over 30 years ago. With a track record of unprecedented results, the Biblically-based program proved to be the answer that Dana and Denise had longed for. They both read “Rise Above,” the follow-up book to Gwen Shamblin’s New York Times best seller, “The Weigh Down Diet” and immediately put the principles into practice. They also joined one of Weigh Down’s online classes and began to connect with other successful Weigh Down participants. Both women lost a remarkable amount of weight very quickly—Dana shed nearly 100 pounds and Denise lost 70 pounds!

Ironically, Dana admits that she did not realize that she had needed to lose that much weight and even feared being thin. Through Weigh Down she learned that her body was not her own, but rather belonged to God, as made clear in I Corinthians 6:19-20…and so she determined to be whatever size God wanted her to be. She describes her Weigh Down class experience as being the forum for connecting her back to God, resulting in a spiritual veil being lifted from her eyes. The external and internal changes in the Cohen family did not stop with Dana! Her husband Terrell also put the principles into practice and lost a significant amount of weight…and the children also found renewed relationships with God and each other. Even outside family members could not believe the beautiful and miraculous changes in the Cohen home.

Denise also fervently put into practice what she learned through Weigh Down, resulting in miraculous changes that went far beyond her 70 pound weight loss. She successfully gave up relying on antidepressants and sleeping pills and gained a renewed vitality, energy and ability in caring for her children. She attributes the peace and joy in her home to be a direct result from what she has learned through the principles taught in Weigh Down.

If you are looking for answers to permanent weight loss, optimum health and answers on how to be connected to God, this show is a must-see!
