Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
WorldLink’s Biblical Encouragement – Weight Loss application provides encouraging Bible verses for the myriad of emotions and physical symptoms associated with trying to lose weight. The app facilitates a personal and meaningful conversation between you and God.
Start by telling God how you are feeling today about your weight loss. Anxious? Doubtful? Frustrated? Hungry? Losing your will? Met your goal? Missed your goal? Ready to give up? Struggling with cheating? Portion control? Tempted? Worried about lifestyle changes? Not seeing results? And more. Then let God encourage you through His word, the Holy Bible (New International Version).
Easy to use – simply select one of more than 35 popular emotions and symptoms dealing with weight loss.
Personal - displays a series of relevant Bible verses specific to how you are feeling currently about your weight loss.
Unique - includes a brief encouraging commentary on each verse.
The verses and comments will provide comfort and encouragement to you in a very personal and meaningful way.
For example, Paul is struggling with losing weight, mostly due to eating large food portions. He launches the Biblical Encouragement – Weight Loss application. He selects the STRUGGLING WITH … category. A sub-category is presented with more detailed options and he selects PORTION CONTROL. The app displays:
“Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent forth his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave.” – Psalm 107:19-20
COMMENT: Ask God to give you the strength of self-control to better manage portion sizes. He will not ignore your request. He will send his healing words to comfort you in times of temptation.
Now Paul is remembering that he should rely more on God in his weight struggle. For one more bit of confirmation, he presses the MORE button. The app displays:
“Rather he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined.” – Titus 1:8
COMMENT: Portion control requires self-control and discipline. Often times this is difficult. Self-control is not so much within yourself, rather it is given to you from God. So, ask God for an extra “portion” of self-control.
Paul feels much better now. He marks the verse as a “favorite”, and then emails the verse as an encouraging note to a friend who is also on a diet.

Updated facebook interface.
Quick, easy, pick-me-up
Nice little app. Wonderfully categorized scriptural references. Easy to pinpoint what you're feeling and subsequently find a reference that will pick you up and invite some peace into your situation. Very helpful to me. Useful in areas other than weight loss, as well.
Love This Ap!
The right message at the right time. Reminds me my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and helps God strengthen me to take better care of it, so I can be a better steward for Him. Thanks, developers. This is a wonderful faith-strengthening ministry you have shared!!
I know it says weight loss but I feel it's for everyday. It has great verses to help you deal with that emotion you're going through. I love it. Yet I am only giving 4 stars because when it gives the option to share, I want to share what i read. Instead it just shared the app itself.
