I originally did the Weigh Down Workshop, was successful after a lot of trial and error, however, I soon realized that Gwen Shamblin's Weigh Down plan had veered of God's straight and narrow and she had followed after her own agenda, leaving me high and dry. Suddenly I remembered this Thin within thing a former WD coordinator had recommended so I ordered a copy of the book. I had lost 100 lbs on WD but had started gaining it back and was desperate.

I already have the book and I followed off and on with the program. The first time I read her book I loved it. I followed everyday. I went from a size 12 to a size 5 in 1986.

The best thing about this book is that, it helped me re-wiring my thoughts by seeing food in a different light.

“The Lord wants to have an ongoing conversation with us throughout the daily rhythms of our life. He is intimately acquainted with all of our ways. As we speak to Him, we acknowledge His presence and His involvement in our lives. This is what Paul means by praying continually (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Since our minds continue working all the time, our silent thoughts and prayers can constantly be offered to him in a running dialogue.”
“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness. I will build you up again and you will be rebuilt. . . . Again you will take up your tambourines and go out to dance with the joyful (Jeremiah 31:3–4).”More quotes…
