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?

About Me

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.
