How many times have you reached for a healthy weight, and how many times have you actually reached that healthy weight? How long have you stayed at a healthy weight? Have you thought of asking God for help?

Maybe you’re working on that last ten pounds, maybe 30, maybe more. Come learn how faith can influence your healthy weight-loss. Find out before the holidays!
This three-part workshop covering body, mind, and spirit focuses on scripture and prayer to aid you in your reach for a healthy weight. The course includes teaching, prayer, practical ideas, discussion, writing exercises, homework scripture-reading, meditation assignments, and (wait for it) ….chocolate (yes—sugar-free).

Here are the workshop topics for the three-part series.

Each session is an hour and a half. The sessions are inter-related, so you are asked to attend all three.

Part One TAKING CARE OF THE TEMPLE Body 1Cor 6: 19-20

Giving up weight guilt. The gift of our healthiest-possible bodies. Scripture and body. Food choices. Getting in touch with our appetite. Getting in touch with our breath.

Part Two “….THINK ON THESE THINGS.” Mind Phil 4:7-8

The mind connections to overeating. Recognizing and changing the pattern. Worry: a prayerful writing exercise. Getting ready.

Part Three PRAYING WITHOUT CEASING Spirit 1Thes 5: 16-19

Ways we use food. Building the relationship in prayer. Practical ways to continue. Breathing again. Personal prayer.

The workshop designer and facilitator is Mimi Dixon, M.A., a veteran food-holic with zero will power about food. She has lost 100 pounds (twice), thanks to God’s grace, and has led workshops in healthy weight loss and faith at a variety of churches and centers.

Mimi has had a 40-year career as an educator and writer and also as a counselor working with eating disorders.
