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)

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.

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....

Let’s be honest, getting fit can be hard...like exhausting hard.
Many women tell me they have a continuously negative conversation going on with themselves and they beat themselves up, because they don’t get their workouts in.
This struggle to workout is compounded by the very unrealistic and single-focus of what it looks like to be fit.
Fitness should be a lifestyle, not a look.
This is why many women feel defeated and like, what’s the point, because they can’t measure up to their social media feed.
Oh my friends, the point is YOU ARE WORTH TAKING CARE OF! ...
