I’m Amy Mendez, the founder of Mended Ministries and Results Unlimited
where we are going to Lay Aside Every Weight because we are “Hungry
For Change”. In this adventure, we are embarking on together. I’m
absolutely delighted that you have decided to join me on this awesome
journey to health and wellness and… who are we kidding? We’re here to
kick fat’s butt!
I am doing this right alongside you … and because you are now an official
Founding Member of this movement and community, you’re going to get a
front row seat to watch this whole community grow (while we ourselves
grow in every dimension of our lives)
You are paving the way for hundreds of people who are going to flood into
this community. It’s YOUR SUCCESS that they will see. It’s YOUR
WEIGHT LOSS that will motivate them. It’s YOUR TESTIMONY of
reclaiming your health that will inspire them to do the same!
This is a safe, loving, Christ-centered arena for God’s people to find
support and encouragement as we conquer the physical and spiritual
constraints that have weighed us down. I am creating a curriculum for you
that will be a 40-day journey to freedom, as we address not only physical
weight loss but “spiritual weight loss” as well!
I am going to give you everything I’ve got and be as vulnerable and
transparent with you as I have ever been in my life. The battles with my
weight, relationships, low self-esteem and low confidence is deeply
personal and it carries a certain stigma that people who have never dealt
with it can’t fully understand. In return for my vulnerability I simply ask that
you would participate fully in the community and in the conversation by
commenting on everything– every video, every post, every tool, every
bonus… and that you make an effort to encourage your fellow members as
I’ll say it again:

Document your journey– that’s what it’s all about. This is a place for you to
be You– and to become the healthiest, happiest version of YOU. Your
narrative helps others pen their own story. In a sense, I’m doing that with
you as well, in the videos I am filming which form the curriculum.
I am not a doctor and I don’t play
one! I am not medically qualified in any way. The information I am sharing
on Amy Mendez Ministries, Lay a side every weight, Results Unlimited,
Mended Ministries and/or Hungry for Change is based on my own
experience, research and observation of others. Nothing I say should be
taken as medical advice. I am not telling you what to do or not do– that is
between you and your medical professional. I am simply sharing my
experience with you. You should not attempt to follow the plan without your
doctor’s advice and medical supervision. Nothing I say is to be taken as
medical advice in any way shape or form. Similarly, while many
nutritionists, health advocates/ coaches/ advisors, doctors and medical
professionals are a part of this community, none of them take the place of
your own personal physician and their opinions do not necessarily reflect
mine or that of Mended Ministries or Results Unlimited.
Okay, now that that’s out of the way, let me say that I do not personally
believe that there is a one-size-fits-all solution. I do not believe that one
specific plan is the right plan for everyone. It didn’t work for me. That’s why
I didn’t want to create a community that revolved around a particular plan.
What works for one may not be right for you.
So, as we go forward into this exciting time, let’s resolve to support one
another even if we can’t personally endorse what may be working for
another member. This is a place for discussion and encouragement… a
place to meet new friends, and to give and to receive support in an
engaged Christian community! So here we go! Game on!!
I believe in you! You were born to win!! Let God use your story for HIS
