Thin Again: A Biblical Approach to Food, Eating and Weight Management Jan 31, 2006
Excellent Book. Simply written but loaded with information. If you are tired of the ups and downs of dieting, this book is very helpful.
The Truth Sep 16, 2005
I found this book to be one of the most life changings books I have read todate. The author gives you a really clear path that makes you focus on your life and you as a person. The insight that I have gained about myself was really freeing. I read the book through once and then I started all over again with Chapter One. I got a journal and I have begun writing, meditating on the scriptures from the book and really learning how to connect my poor eating habits to the stressful or negative events that occur in my life. I will be using this book for the next few years. This book can really be applied to any addiction that a person may be dealing with.
Inside Out Aug 3, 2004
This is the last weight-loss book you will ever need! Thin Again teaches the reader how to deal with the inner causes of over-eating first. I have never read anything like it! It's not man-made psychological principles that will make permanent changes. It's the application of Scripture and the healing ministry of the Holy Spirit. Thin Again is a gentle, non-threatening, non-judgmental treatment of the problem of obesity and food-addiction. I have read volumes on these subjects, but this one changed my life, and I am encouraged for my future as a much thinner person.
This was AWESOME! Jun 6, 2002
I absolutely loved this book! Since my purchase two months ago, I have lost 43 pounds! Just reading the book makes you understand so much, but more importantly, it allows you to give up the dieting "thing" and give it to God. He is the only one that has perfection and can give the support you need. This book also helped me understand why I have failed so many other times. I admit that in giving up my "legalism" it has been very hard to throw away the scale, but I have never ate my favorite foods and still lost weight.
In the past I tried Diet Center, deal a meal, shots, starvation, and numerous pills and vitamin programs. I always lost weight, but always felt deprived, and once I would overeat or eat the wrong thing, that was the end. Not so today!
In some ways I'm glad the other ways I tried to lose weight never really worked. Now I can say that my success is all to the glory of the Lord!
Disappointing Jan 15, 2002
Judy Wardell wrote one of the very best, and first, non-diet books for achieving desired weight loss - "Thin Within". Then she got married. I can only blame her husband for converting an imaginative, insightful writer into a Bible-beating fundamentalist who quotes scripture in every paragraph.
