God’s Definition of Beauty

9 Jul

While running on the elliptical machine, I love to review memorized passages of Scripture and memorize new sections. This morning I became keenly aware of the 50 pounds that are no longer with me (thank You, God!!!) and simultaneously intimidated by the extra 50 pounds still jiggling along, publicly, as I ran while pumping my arms.

Eating with GodJust then, I flipped to the next passage which was, “3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 5 For in this manner, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves…” I Peter 3:3-5

I love this passage for a lot of reasons, but today, just when I needed it, God rephrased verse 3 for me, so I understood:

“Do not let your focus be merely outward—a thin body, a fit body or even a healthy body— 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.”

Yes, oh, yes! More than anything else in the world, I want to be BEAUTIFUL to God. I’m grateful that He has helped me shed 50 pounds and is still shaving more off my body in the process, but even more, even if I never lost another pound or even if I get a dread disease, I will still praise Him!

Have a great day! Love you! Marnie

PS – I get asked all the time, “What are you doing to lose the weight?” The answer is Eating with God.

PPS – By the way, how do YOU rephrase God’s definition of beauty for your unique situation?

Food Strategy I: 2012

9 Jan

My #1 food tip for 2012 is to Eat with God. It’s first and foremost what’s happening in your subconscious mind that matters. Way, way before any type of eating or exercise plan will work, you’ve got to be on your own team! So, trek on over to and start letting God change your mind–your subconscious mind, about your relationship with food.

Food 2012

Food 2012

Another of my co-presenters at, is Forbes Riley submitted the fitness tip: Find a few minutes a day to change you body and keep you motivated to achieve your 2012 health and fitness goals by using a quick-results workout plan. Forbes invented a machine called SpinGym – from– and there are many other options out there as well. The key is to find an exercise you enjoy that can fit into the minutes you can carve out of your schedule. If you hate it or if you don’t have time for it, you’ll quit it. But if you find the workout you love and you can do it in the minutes you have, you’re highly likely to stick with it!

A few weeks after the launch of my new website, Better Than a Diet, God orchestrated a “chance meeting” with Dr. Michele May. He went on to use her extensive research to confirm to me what He had been asking me to teach, even though I was still in the learning curve myself.

It is my great joy to introduce you to one of my newest friends, and to her awesome research and training entitled, “Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat.”

“Eat What You Love” says Dr. Michelle May

24 Sep

How do you decide whether or not to take that next bite? Do you keep eating until the food is gone? Maybe you base your intake on the behavior of those around you. Or, possibly you don’t have any reasonable way to determine when to stop eating… and you find that you are often eating too much.

This past summer God gifted me with the programs outlined at Finding myself still severely overweight (see photo), it took extreme courage to publish this information!

I am still personally learning about all of this, but I am content with where God has me now on the way to where He is taking me; and I am convinced, by faith, that Eating with God is His answer for millions of currently obese Americans. family

I acted by faith, not sight.

Then, last week, due to a set of circumstances that I could never have orchestrated, had I tried, I was able to meet Dr. Michelle May, to get her book, and to learn that it is just awesome!

She is a doctor, she is thin, she has helped others lose excess poundage, and she teaches concepts that encourage us as we learn to Eat with God.

I believe that the training included in Eating with Gratitude and Eating with God answer the question of “How?” we can eat with joy. But, if you are like me, I’ve had some “Why? When? What? How much? and Where?” questions, the answers to which a naturally thin person intuitively knows.

Dr. Michelle May’s book, Eat What You Love – Love What You Eat, is being released to bookstores right now. She has agreed to do an interview with me for Marnie’s Friends, but in the meantime, you can check out her book Eat What You Love – Love What You Eat.

While Eating with God is what I plan to be doing for the rest of my life, I am excited for the additional “non-diet” support provided by this newly released resource.

I encourage you to check out both Dr. May’s book, and, if you haven’t already joined us, sign up for America’s 31 Day Experiment. Eating should (and can) be a wonderful experience. So, let’s get going!
