10 Ways to Stop Hormonal Weight Gain
Okay, today is real talk for women. We’re talking hormones and weight gain, and what we can do to beat it!
This has been a very tough struggle for me, so I want to share everything I’ve learned to overcome it.
I believe God wants to be involved in every detail of our lives, so here’s His word to stand strong and confident on:
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. – Psalm 32:8
Let’s just all agree that weight loss is not simply one calorie in one calorie out.
Calories do matter, the food that’s making up your calories matters a lot, but hormones matter more!
Our hormones are driving the weight loss process! Especially as you get into perimenopause and menopause.
Our world just thinks of weight loss as diet and workout,...

5 W’s to Simplify Your Faith and Fitness
When I was first searching for answers on how to get healthy, I began researching our manual for life, the Bible.
I noticed that Jesus got up early. He got alone and prayed. He walked everywhere. He put time with His father first.
Following His example, I personally found lasting results, and then created an entire program that has helped transform 1000s of women’s lives.
These women don’t just lose weight, they find confidence, pursue goals, and live free of the dieting rollercoaster.
I wanted to share how to do this with you, so I created a simple system called The 5 W’s.
The 5 W’s are a new and easy tool that will help you create a lifestyle of success.
5 W’s: Word, Water, Workout, Whole, God-made foods, Worship
Get started now!
Aim to create a daily win with each W.
Throughout the day, check-in with yourself and say,

When God Did the Impossible in My Life
I have a confession, sharing personal stories isn't always easy for me, because it's never easy to admit all the doubt, fear, and discouragement I've experienced pursuing my goals.
You know those moments when you think, "Oh I could never do that, or why is it so hard, and why does success seem so easy for other people?"
If you're really struggling today, I'm sharing personal stories to show you that no matter what it looks like, God's not done with you.
Sometimes we need to intentionally look back on all He has brought us through to remember how good He is.
I call them HIMPOSSIBLE moments!
This scripture speaks to this perfectly:
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us. (Ephesians 3:20)
My Brave Moment

I will never forget scrolling through my comments on Instagram and seeing this:

40 Pounds is no easy feat and in only seven months!
Patty didn’t use a diet fix either, she used a life fix.
It’s been eight months since her Faith Inspired Transformation and she hasn't gained the weight back either.

Five years ago, God put it on my heart to write a book about everything I learned the hard way from the fitness industry.

Are there places in your life where you could really use the Lord's help?
Doing this exercise will show you exactly where God wants to do the work with you that will level up your life:
Step 1.Think of your life as your home and each part of you is a room.
Let’s walk through your house together, and as we do, ask yourself if God has been pointing anything out in this room:
Kitchen: Has he been talking to you about making better food choices, or are you struggling with disordered eating, overeating, undereating, or maybe even numbing yourself with food?
Office: Are you hearing anything about a business He’s put on your heart, your current job, trusting Him for a new job, or perhaps how you spend your money?
Bathroom: When you look in the mirror, do you see what He sees, or do you struggle with getting dressed or your body...

Don’t let THIS Destroy Your Fitness Progress

Today’s show is one that will equip you with a truth many of us may not even be aware of, and it's a major "aha" moment!
Pause for a moment and think about this:
Have you ever made the connection that weekends were a third of the year and could be sabotaging your fitness goals?
In my personal struggle to stay strong and fit: mind, body and soul, God showed me this: 52 weekends a year X 2 days = 104 days
But if you start your weekends on Fridays, that’s 52 x 3 = 156 days
With a three day weekend, we’re getting closer to half of the year.
I thought it was important to do a Strong. Confident. His. episode on this, because God wants His daughter’s wise.
He wants our eyes open to the traps of the enemy and the things that we don’t even see that are completely derailing us from our best....

Do you have limiting beliefs about God? Were you taught it is ungodly to want to be successful, take care of your health, or even want to be the best version of yourself?
Did you know limiting beliefs don’t come from Him?
As women of God, we have been saved, set apart, and chosen. We are called to shine for Him and bring Him glory.
Growing up, Heather was taught that wanting to be successful was ungodly and prideful, so she put her head down and settled for less in her career, friendships, and even her appearance.
Have you ever done that too?
Working with Heather, I taught her the truth of who God says she is in order to undo this stronghold. (Learn more about who God says you are, here.)
