Weight Loss! A New Year’s Resolution

If you are like millions of people, this week will not go by without you thinking about your New Year’s challenge. New Year’s resolutions are on fire right now!

Most people just have fun with it and tell their friends they are going to make a major change. If you are a smoker, then you probably are saying, “I am going to quit for 2014.” And if that is your true desire, then I support your endeavor. Maybe you have been toying around with the idea to “go back to school.” If so, there is no better time than the present.

But the biggie is “weight loss!” With millions of people overweight around the world, I am sure that if you took a poll, slimming down is the most popular desire for this coming New Year.

And I am on that list! Over the last two years, I have lost about a good 40-50 pounds. I have to admit that it wasn’t hard at all. But for those of you who want to know how to lose weight, successfully, I want to share with you exactly how I did it.

I did not take a weight loss pill; there was no surgery, no liquid drinks and no strenuous exercise plans. I promise: my story is not an everyday weight loss story. In fact, you probably never even knew this was possible.

So how did I do it?

God is the answer. I confronted Him about my weight and asked for a solution. He told me! And it worked.

I will share with you in my next post exactly what I did. Stay tuned!

Happy New Year!

Take As Directed

Following directions is not always that easy, is it? In fact, the older we get, it seems like we don’t need to read the directions to figure things out. It seems so simple, doesn’t it? But no one blames you if you can’t figure it out. Instructions are available! But will you take them?

RED WINE Magazine (December 2013 issue) has a fantastic article called “Take As Directed,” written by Michael Vazquez. I felt so passionate about this article that I wanted to share it with you on the blog. So here’s an audio clip below. Take about 10 minutes and listen to what Michael has to say. I think this is going to bless you. Send it to someone you care about.

Have a safe and loving holiday!

Facing the Bully

Have you ever been afraid to go to school or outside because of a bully?

That's right... a bully.

They seem to appear out of thin air. Somewhere, a child or teenager or even an adult is being picked on right now by a bully. Although “bullyism” is finally being exposed by recent stories of kids who have committed suicide because of the constant stalking of bullies, it still exists at an alarming rate.

I am so glad that the media has turned the lights on this travesty, which over the decades, has become empowered by modern technology. The Internet chat rooms, forums and gossip sites are perfect breeding grounds for bullies to attack God’s people.

It’s no longer the bully in the playground... it has progressed into the media and entertainment business as well. And now, there is a new breed of bully that has infiltrated the hospitals and medical laboratories around the world. It’s grown so rapidly that cancer centers around the country have sprung up to fight this predator. This bully is not even human. 

Around the globe, 12.7 million people will find out they have been attacked by this heinous beast and 7.6 million people this year alone will succumb to it ( This bully has destroyed families, shortened lives
and affected lifelong friendships.

It is not in the schoolyard. It’s not on the job. No... this monster shows up without any warning. There are no verbal confrontations with it, but it poses a very real threat, as most bullies do!

Cancer is the bully I am speaking of Physicians, research scientists, alternative medicine gurus and even nutritionists have not discovered a cure. 

Indeed, cancer does not discriminate.Time magazine’s April 2013 issue said: The Hero Scientist Who Defeats Cancer Will Likely Never Exist.” However...

The Bible says: “The battle is not yours, but God’s.” 2 Chronicles 20:15 New Living Translation

The Proof Is In The Pudding

I am living proof that, like all bullies, this one can be taken down. That’s what God did for me. He defeated cancer without a pill, chemo or radiation.

Oh! My gastroenterologist gave me a referral to see an oncologist. But the Greatest Physician in the world took care of my bully (cancer) and I have no doubt that He can take care of yours, too.

In 2001, I was diagnosed with colon cancer. I was 39 years old at the time. The doctor referred to my age when he delivered the news. He said, “Diana, you have cancer and it’s a shame that you are only 39 years old.” There I was lying in the recovery room, still drugged up from the Demerol, cocktail that was given to me with my colonoscopy. My two assistants stood there surprised at the doctor’s horrific bedside manner. But I had another visitor who spoke so softly but confidently into my right ear. It was the other physician right behind me in the room. He said, “You don’t have cancer.”

I knew exactly whom this doctor was that was speaking in my ear. I had developed a deeper relationship with Him far beyond the other doctor standing in front of me.I immediately said to the specialist who delivered me the death notice. “I don’t have cancer.”  But the specialist just continued speaking as though I never said a word. So I said again, “I don’t have cancer.”

This time, the doctor stopped his train of thought and said to me, “Why do you keep saying that?” I told him that God just told me that I don’t have cancer. I said it so matter-of-factly that it was obvious that I believed God over the doctor.

The specialist was obviously annoyed. He scolded me, saying, “I have been a gastroenterologist for more than 20 years. I know you have cancer.” He went on to say that he had found a tumor on the lower part of my bowel.

The Bully killed My Cousin

My cousin Ellen had gotten cancer at the about the same time. We were both born in the same month and year. But her story doesn’t end like mine. She died from colon cancer. Her mom had only one child and lost her to this bully.And here I am 12 years later, healthy, strong and cancer free. 

The fight was over in that recovery room that day. I had already won. The doctors didn’t know it yet. I beat the bully. God fought the fight and saved me. I had a part to play. And if this beatable bully is confronting you, you have your part to play, too. I encourage you to read by my book, “How I Beat Cancer.” Download it today, if not for you, then a friend, family member or co-worker. I lived so that you can live, too. If the doctor said there is no hope, you need a new physician, the Great One
