One day I looked at myself in a full length mirror. As I stood there in my underwear my eyes closed in shame. I couldnt believe I allowed myself to get to this point. After three children, I felt like I would never get my body (any body) back. I fell on the floor in my bedroom and wept for God to show me what to do. Gluttony was my biggest sin. My idol. My obsession. I cried to God to save me from this incredible sin in my life. "I just want to eat when I feel hungry, I dont want to think about it every waking moment! PLEASE GOD!!!" After about 15 minutes I peeled myself off the floor and went to bed. The next morning I went to christianbooks.com and found The Lords Table. I did an Amazon search to see what the ratings were and I was flabergasted on how many 5 stars it was given. "What does this book say that all the others didnt?" was my first thought. But being obsessed with weight loss material I purchased the book. Now 25 days into the program I am down 18lbs but whats better than that. Is my walk with God. If you have come to a point in your life where its not about you anymore, but about God. Then this book is for you. You will gain control. Visit online [...] to be assigned a Mentor during your new walk with God.

I suggest buying the book and doing the free online course. It's no accident that you've found this book. The course is incredible. I began the course a broken person, with a broken body, spirit and heart. Through this course, I learned that God makes all things new, he tears down to rebuild. This course healed my heart and made me a different person. Yeah, I lost a lot of weight too, but that's not the important part. The important part is that God is in my heart now. I've learned to fill my heart, not my stomach.

I spent years searching for the answer to my weight problem. I tried every thing, even other Christian weight loss books. But this book changed my life! I have been set free from my addiction to overeating. Food is no longer my master - it's my servant, and I use it to grow healthy and strong. But more importantly, this book has brought me closer to God, deepening my relationship with Him. The focus is no longer on food, it's on Jesus - and this book was the guide that helped me get there.

I'm having a difficult time understanding a previous reviewer's comment that Mike Cleveland teaches in this book that his eating plan is the only acceptable approach (vs. Atkins, etc.). The following is a direct quote from The Lord's Table online course:

"Welcome to The Lord's Table! This course is a 60-Day program to help you gain control of your eating habits and to lose weight, if needed. Here is a suggested eating schedule to help you get up and running. The suggested eating days are like training wheels on a bike. Eventually you'll outgrow them, but they're helpful to get you started and you will feel more secure having them guide you. In The Lord's Table, this eating schedule is offered as a guide, not a requirement. Eventually you will develop your own schedule of eating that honors the Lord and produces weight loss or maintains optimum weight."

Doesn't exactly sound like he's saying his way is the only acceptable way to me - does it to you?

I find it frustrating that someone would not only misrepresent this author's teaching, but would cast aspersions on Mr. Cleveland's character as well. He "likes to toot his own horn" because he (supposedly) asked some who have been successful with breaking food's grip on their lives to come to this Amazon site and write a review? Sounds like getting the word out to me.

This is a wonderful program, with spot-on encouragement and firmly grounded Biblical teaching for those of us who find food has far too great a place in our lives. I highly recommend it.

Hi, my name is Joanne. I'm 39 years old, married 20 years with three daughters that are 18, 15 and 9. I accepted the Lord as my Savior when I was 18 but it wasn't until 5 years ago when I found a wonderful church that I finally started to grow in my relationship with Jesus.
When I was younger I used to be the skinny twig in school that everyone was jealous of. After my third daughter it caught up to me and I started putting on the weight. Two months ago I was at my heaviest weight of 180 and miserably as all get out. I hated being that overweight. I would eat whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted, in whatever amount I wanted. And all the while I knew it was wrong but couldn't stop.
Then I somehow stumbled upon Setting Captives Free while surfing the internet. The funny thing is, I've tried to retrace my steps to how I found it and I just can't seem to do it! It was all God! Anyways, I was intrigued and signed up for the Lord's Table and my life was changed. On the first study my eyes were opened to the truth of my overeating and I knew I was on to something good. The first week I couldn't figure out where I'd find time to walk, but after praying about it God showed me where and I started walking 1 1/2 miles to 2 miles a day. Now I'm working out at a local gym with my two older daughters.
I've grown so much in my relationship with the Lord through this study. I've learned to turn to Him when I'm tempted to eat when I shouldn't and He's taught me to be disciplined and self-controlled. I couldn't have done it without my faith in Jesus. All the glory goes to the Lord for all the changes in me. I even want to look into doing a Lord's Table study at my church at one point.

Beginning weight: 180
Current weight: 165 and still losing!
