Are you tired of:

  • Craving food constantly?
  • Not being able to stop eating?
  • Dieting only to gain the weight back again plus more?
  • Being in bondage to certain foods?

Food does not have to control you. You can look better, feel better and live better. You can transform into the person God designed you to be, all without dieting. I did it and if I did it, I know you can too.

I used to weigh 430 pounds, so I get it. My life was a huge depressing mess. I was ready to throw in the towel on everything. I felt I was so far gone, even God couldn’t help me. I had gotten myself into this impossible situation and I felt like I was the only one who could get myself out.

I was a strong, intelligent woman. I thought I could lose the weight on my own, but every time I went on diet and did that, I would gain it all back plus more. I couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t stop eating. I wanted to lose weight and never gain it back again, but it just didn’t seem possible. Why was I obsessed with food and other people were not?

I know how depressing it is to feel like you are in bondage to sugar, junk food and highly processed carbohydrate-laden foods. Along with that comes shame, guilt, regret, doubt, anger, frustration, failure and years and years of heartache. I’ve been there and it is exhausting. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s felt this way. Can you relate?

Transformation Is Possible

With God’s help, I’ve lost 250 pounds and kept it off since 2013. I can help you lose the weight you long to lose while getting closer to God at the same time. In Overcomers Academy, I will teach you how to find victory over your weight issues and discover how to overcome habits that have kept you stuck in the yo-yo dieting spiral. You’ll learn about how to turn your dreams to look better, feel better and live better into a reality.

We also do community in a  private Facebook group for encouragement, support and accountability. Ask any questions or for help any time, night or day. Your post will be answered in a timely fashion. This is your own private support group for your journey. Weekly posts and groups help keep you headed in the right direction.

Our monthly live video meeting is where I can help you break free of the obstacles that keep you stuck. You’ll gain insights into why you eat when you really want to lose weight, the root of your issue and so much more.

Is This For Me?

Overcomers Academy is not for everyone, but it is for you:

•      If you have 50 pounds or more you are desperate to lose.

•      If you have less than 50 pounds to lose but feel stuck.

•      Even if you’ve had weight loss surgery and have begun gaining the weight back.

•      If a doctor has given you an ultimatum to lose weight and keep it off.

•      If you are living in shame, condemnation, regret or frustration over your body.

•      If you feel like a failure and want to give up.

Overcomers Academy is not for you:

•      If you think another diet plan is all you need.

•      If you want a magic fix.

•      If you are not ready to do the hard work and just want something easy.

•      If you don’t want help on your journey from one who’s been there.

•      If you don’t want to change your habits.

•      If you are not open to receiving help from God to lead you to victory.

What Others Are Saying

Here’s what one of our members, Kim Mancuso from Webster, NY, has to say about the Overcomers Academy program. “It’s about facing a lifetime of hurts, habits, damage and strongholds and overcoming them through complete dependence on and submission to God. We can do nothing without Him.

“It’s about being with others who have walked the walk before me and triumphed. It’s about being with others who are in their place of struggle with me. It’s about being with others who are somewhere in between. It’s a beautiful dynamic.

“I stay here because I will have no chance to ever take hold of this once and for all if I don’t. I can’t find this support and wisdom anywhere else. God led me here because my life depends on it.”

Why I Love Overcomers

On my journey, I struggled for way too many years wanting to lose weight but not wanting to change how I ate or moved. I would go on diets and lose weight only to gain it back again. I knew what to do, I just couldn’t do it. I knew something had to change. 

That’s when God finally got my attention and showed me I am a sugar addict. So, I got a coach, joined a group and lost the weight. it wasn’t quick and it wasn’t easy, but I did lose over 250 pounds. 

It’s also why I’m passionate about Overcomers Academy. It’s the online version of what worked for me. That’s how I know it will work for you as well. I will be your coach and the members of this group will be your biggest cheerleaders, but God’s grace will energize you and give you the strength and power on your journey.

Romans 12:2 in The Message sums up what God showed me to do. “Fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out.”

I’m excited to announce that after some time of being closed, Overcomers Academy’s doors are open and will be through Jan. 26. I have added some special bonuses for those ready to embark on this incredible journey.

When you join, you will also receive access to three of my books including my newest book, Sweet Surrender: Breaking Strongholds. You will also receive, Sweet Journey to Transformation: Practical Steps to Lose Weight and Live Healthy and Sweet Grace: How I Lost 250 Pounds.

Don’t wait! Get started on your transformation today. Go here:

I’ll see you in the group!
