Will You Weigh In? (pun intended!)

Hey all–

Crazy, busy day today. (My Facebbok Study on my organizing book is going wonderfully, but keeping me hoppin!)

I’ve decided to redirect you to a prior post here for your encouragement today. Click here to read The Stinkin’ Stomach God.

Then, will you return and weigh in on this question, “Would you still like to see a Weight Loss Wednesday feature on this blog?”  I’m praying about making some changes here on topics and the days I post and want to gauge interest.

On Wednesdays, at times  we have lots of gals comment (50-75 and one time 970!!!) but other weeks it is almost silent.  I’m thinking maybe we’ve run our course and I should just post occasionally on this topic rather than weekly.

Your thoughts?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!


  1. Just found you! same as above….Lysa’s Made to Crave! Your weight loss journey sounded a little similiar to mine……so I’m here for inspiration to get back where I need to be.
    Going back to read some previous entries…..my first time to follow a blog!

  2. Same as previous posters..new here..heard about you in made to crave..struggling beyond struggling with my weight which has led to other issues. I hope you start this up again but now with your past blogs posts I will have a starting place. Thanks.

  3. I am new to your blogs. This is actually my first day. A few weeks ago I picked up Lysa’s made to crave daily devotional and I started reading it Monday. In today’s devotional it had your email address with the mention of your weight loss wednesday blog. Almost exactly one year ago I started on another of my many attempts at weight loss. I do well for awhile, (43 lbs to be exact) and then I hit a wall. It was after all of the holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas. Anyway I have seen my weight slowly start creeping back on. I am determined that I will not let this happen again. I am going to reach my goal. (That sounds good today anyway!) And then I found Lysa’s devotional and it hit me. I am going about this all wrong. This needs to be a spiritual journay. A way to draw closer to God and become more obedient. And then I read your blog today. About our stomach being our God and that is exactally what I have been doing. When I am depressed, I eat. When I am happy, I eat. When I am angry, I eat. I should be turning to God for my answers instead of food. So, Thank you and I thank Lysa for letting God use you to open my eyes. I know I will not be perfect and I will slip up but by the grace of God I will get through this and not only reach my goal but become a better more obedient child of God.

  4. I ‘m new to your blog, Karen (through MTC devotional) but have already been encouraged. I’m back in the battle for a second time (not my second “diet”, I assure you) to lose over 100 pounds. Following the blog of someone like you is inspiring especially given the Christ-centered focus of your message. Please keep the WLW posts coming! :)

  5. Please DON’T stop this blog. It is perfect just the way it is. I am new & I have been reading from the bottom up. I am so impressed with how you & everyone did through the holidays. I let anything be an excuse. I see if you can do it, then I need to stay focused & follow your example. I feel alone. I am very down due to my RDH boards coming up 28th of April. Even though I have done this off & on for many years, for some reason I am missing the mark going into this exam.

    I appreciate your blogs on making a plan while you were going into to holidays. I need someone to hold me accountable now. For some reason it has not clicked about me weighing in & responding, not the #, but the up & down. I get it now. I’m on board. I’ll weigh in on Wed & record.

    My goal is to lead a Bible Study using the Made to Crave books & DVD in a 9 mon course. I’m awesome organizing & planning, but I fail at not carrying out the plan. I really need God’s help. If I can’t succeed before this Fall when I hope the Bible Study begins, then I shouldn’t be leading it.

    Thanks for this blog & please continue it & don’t change it.

  6. Just found out about this blog. I am currently reading Made to Crave and I would love to have an accountable group of women to share with and go through this with me. I pray that this blog will keep going for all the other women like me who need the support and the encouragements of others.


  7. I also just found WLW. I have been reading the older blogs. They have been awesome. I wish you were still posting. Praying that if enough people comment you will start again, I am sure there would be enough of a new group that really need the accountability and encouragement .

    Thank you!

  8. I just discovered your blog and I love it! I hope you will still post because I want (need) to lose 100 pounds and since you did it maybe I can too!!!

  9. I just found your blog today and am very interested in WLW. I have been on a weight loss program as well as have been working out as much as I get out and do it. I think this will be helpful for me. The blogging will be encourageing to me. I am really gald I found this. Thank you for having these posts available.

  10. I just found your blog and am enjoying going back in the archives. I started WW 10 months ago and have lost 35 pounds. I am 54 years old and just got tired of the extra weight. No major health problems, only laziness. Usually I do ok for 2-3 weeks then put a little weight back on for a couple of weeks. It really is a roller coaster for me. I have not missed a weekly meeting but sometimes feel I need a pick-me-up in between meetings. I am so happy I have found your archived blogs. I can read these for encouragement instead of reaching for the snack. Thank you for having these posts so accessible.

  11. Just found your blog! God is calling me to more than making food obey – He is calling ME to live in obedience. I’m looking forward to doing some reading of past WLW’s.

  12. I have just found your blog and am enjoying reading all the posts and comments. I am delighted to look forward to reading your teaching on Wednesday.

  13. Karen, I have been dealing with this food stronghold just too long. It is influencing way too many parts of my life and who I am. I have finally accepted that this is not about my failures of “self control” but about my not totally surrendering all of me to Jesus. Now that I have found your WLW blog and have read through many of the past themes, I just know you are part of Jesus’ encouragement for me. Thank you for sharing your gifts and your heart. Although I understand it if you are closing this chapter of your walk, I hope you don’t.

  14. Karen, I caught on to your Weight Loss Wednesdays way late, but have been going through all the archives and have been greatly blessed by them. I am 62 and have struggled all my life with my weight. I have lost 35 pounds and have a lot more to lose, but was being greatly encouraged by your articles. The last one I could find is this June 2011 one. Are you still posting? At any rate, thank you for blessing me in my walk, Barb
