I teach women how to work with God to transform their lifestyles, lose weight and live healthy.
At one time, my life was a complete mess. I weighed 430 pounds, was exhausted, depressed, stressed, and tired of living. Fat and happy is a lie, especially when you are super morbidly obese and in constant pain. Today, I’ve lost more than 250 pounds and kept it off since 2013. I know your pain. I can help you. I want to help you.
Are you ready to change your life?
Here’s where to begin:

I grew up in a very missions-minded church. With this emphasis on missions and my desire to do something special in God’s Kingdom, it wasn’t unusual I went forward in several services over the years to volunteer to be a foreign missionary. I had my heart set on...
For years I didn’t believe that God had a purpose or destiny for me. The lie I believed was that God can’t use me because I’m too fat and I can’t lose weight. Turns out my destiny and my weight were very intertwined.
It didn’t start out that way. I loved to honor Grandma by reciting poems for her church’s Christmas program. It made me happy to speak because it made her happy. Then came the year I was 12. Grandma decided since I did such a good job learning one poem a year, she...
Ever since I was 12 years old I felt I had no voice. It wasn’t a natural lie I happened upon. It was much deeper than that. It was a stronghold the evil one set up in me from an early age to keep me from fulfilling my destiny. Now, I know I have a voice because God broke the stronghold that kept it silent for many years. Now, nothing and no one but God can shut me up!
I was doing well on my weight loss journey until I saw the scales show that I weighed 199 pounds. I didn’t know why but my body did not want to go below 200 pounds. It wasn’t that I was eating anything wrong and I was still exercising. It just felt very much like a...

Growing up, I had one primary prayer request: My mother’s healing from her emotional illness. As early as I can remember this request topped every prayer list I ever made, the subject of every spoken and unspoken prayer request in church and Sunday School, the thing...
The truth is nothing is too hard for God, but sometimes we just need a little push from Him in the right direction. What we want to be a miraculous instantaneous deliverance may be God getting us to the point that we are finally read to walk out our journeys holding tight to Jesus.
One of the first concepts I learned when I started my lifestyle change journey was that instead of going on another diet to lose weight, I needed to learn how to change my habits. I needed to choose one bad habit to stop and one good habit to start. It was when I...
I’m Teresa Shields Parker, Christian weight loss coach, author, podcaster and speaker. I’ve been writing since I was born or at least it feels that way. I do know I was born to write. However, it wasn’t until 2013 when I wrote my memoir, Sweet Grace: How I Lost 250 Pounds and Stopped Trying to Earn God’s Favor that I really felt I could legitimately don the moniker of author. It had been 60 years in the making.
