Book Description

Being overweight is nothing to laugh at, but most people who want to lose weight are tired of the serious, "Thou shalt not" approach. Many are ready for a lighthearted look at weight loss--"a practical devotional approach that offers scriptural advice in a way that encourages and never condemns.

I bought a used paperback copy in January because someone recommended this book, and I was not disappointed. Then I was so excited to see that it came out in a Kindle version. I have gone through weight loss ups and downs since I was a preteen. This book gave me the courage to seek God with my weight loss. The devotions in here help me keep my focus on God and not myself. This lighthearted book also helps me keep in mind that there is more to life than just my weight. I recommend this book to any Christian who has issues with weight.

Janice Thompson hits the mark again! Using her talented writing skills of inspiration and humor, she has created a "diet book" like no other. Let's face it, losing weight is not an easy task. It certainly helps when you have positive people around you to encourage and support you. And....this book will definitely do this! Once again, Janice's gift of humor will have you smiling and laughing as you can relate to her own personal struggles with weight loss. You will come away with a feeling that, "yes, I can take charge of my health today" with a positive attitude, determination, and a "little help from above". I recommend this book....and while saying that, I also highly recommend her other Christian romance novels. Have fun reading!

Author Janice Thompson hits the nail on the head with this book!!
After being on a "diet" most of my life, I am thrilled to finally see in print (on my Kindle) the truth about "dieting". The spiritual perspective is appreciated and a crucial component to "success".
I Must Decrease is honest and funny while offering encouragement to "eat healthier" - not "diet". This is a way of life, not a short term project.
Love the format with "ticklers", "tidbits", "traps", "tricks", "treats", and "testimonies" for each day! Makes me feel like Janice is walking beside me on my journey.
Highly recommend I Must Decrease to anyone who wants to live healthier!!

Another inspiring and encouraging book that makes you smile! Janice has a knack for telling it like it is and dropping bits of humor and inspiration along the way. I'm taking her challenge to decrease and enjoying the tips, tricks, and devotions along the way.

This book is just what the title promises: inspiration and encouragement. Janice Hanna Thompson has walked this walk and can truly talk the talk. With humor and complete understanding of the dieter's life, her tips and biblical exhortations give one the motivation to keep at it. I highly recommend this offering to anyone who needs to lose weight or maintain a healthy lifestyle.

I first read I Must Decrease in paper format several years ago, and now I'm thrilled to be reading it again on my Kindle. Author Janice Thompson took a subject that has generated entire sections in bookstores and given her own unique and user-friendly slant to it. Thompson's advice is easy to implement, and her method of delivery--using humor, real work illustrations, and the input of fellow strugglers--gave me hope that I, too, could manage this weight loss thing. I love how she wraps the message of good health in the words of Scripture, not in a holier-than-thou way, but rather with an I'm-working-on-it-too emphasis.

DO NOT miss this book. It will change your life? How do I know? It has changed mine.

I loved this book. As soon as I started reading I was not only motivated to lose weight, but inspired that I actually could this time. I lost 39 lbs and feel free from the bondage that food can put you in. This is a lite-hearted book with biblical principals as well as helpful hints to rid yourself of unwanted pounds without "Dieting" or "Dieing" to eat. The journal pages have been so instremental to my progress, do not read the book without using the journal section daily!
