Made to Crave



Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard of this bible study? It's a study for women that helps us focus on God instead of other things (in our case, food).

I have been sleeved for 5 months. 3 months ago my father passed away, my grandmother's health has taken a turn for the worse and my son had to have emergency abdominal surgery last week. I've turned to food instead of God for comfort. In the past trying times have always brought me closer to God, but not this time around. I haven't turned my back on God. I'm not angry with Him. Because of trials I've gone through before, I know He has it all under control and is working things out for my good (Romans 8:28).

But I need some motivation! Does anyone want to do this study with me? I figure we can do it together online right here on Vertical Sleeve Talk. If anyone is interested, let me know. We'll all have to go buy or order the books on our own. And we can come here everyday and start a discussion on each day's topic. Let me know y'all!

Are you referring to WeighDown?

No. It's not Weigh Down. You can see the info at www.madetocrave.com.

I am so sorry this is happening to you. . .but only you can change how you want things to go. I heard this at one church service. When the passengers of 9/11 were heading to crash into the pentagon one passenger called his wife and stated " We are going to die today, but some of us are going to do something about it" . . . "some of us are doing to do something about it" Only you can "do something about it" Good luck and God bless

It's true. Only I can decide to make the change. Only I can choose to put the fork/snacks/caloried drinks down. I am also inviting others on the journey. You know what the bible says, "As Iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." (Psalm 27:17).

Sorry I didn't realise the subject was the name - duh! blink.gif It says "as of January 1st, 2011, Made to Crave is no longer in operation" so does that mean it's no go? Not much seems to be working on there, due that I'm guessing.

I'm getting "sleeved" in a few weeks. A friend turned me onto made to crave. it's FABULOUS! you can start the 21-day program any time and you'll get an e-mail sent to your in-box. Each piece has a different angle on turning to food... today was my day 11 and it was a great one! I believe Lysa (who started the ministry) also has a book on the same topic with the same name. Made to Crave. You are right, it's madetocrave.org. :)

Did you ever start this study? I just read your thread and went to the site. I ordered the book and daily devotional to access on Kindle. Then I saw the participants guide and thought "Now this is a good study". So if you have not started and are looking for someone to go through with you. Let me know and I will order myself the participants guide. Iron definitely sharpens iron and the closer we grow to Him the better we are in our journey.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
