Welcome to the very first episode of the Weight Loss with the Holy Spirit podcast. I am so grateful that you are here and in this podcast I want to share with you how this idea was even born, a little bit about me, and what you can expect as you follow this podcast. My name is Denise Jelnik. I’m 46 years old I’m a recovered closet binge eater and I got the calling to help women find freedom from food Nearly two years ago
Okay. So now prior to the pandemic in 2020. I Was a full time personal trainer. I was working at a gym. It was great.
Everything was awesome And then during the pandemic, I got a taste of being at home. Well, it provided so much peace and flexibility to my family that I thought, Oh my gosh, I really want to find a way to do what I do and help women and stay at home. So what I thought I would do is I would become a wellness coach.
And so I wouldn’t help women with just their Exercise. I would help them with the diet, and the stress, and the sleep, and all the things. Okay. So I started to get re certified as a wellness coach. And then about halfway through the certification, the Lord was like, Hey, listen. I don’t want you to help women with their physical bodies.
I want you to bring souls to me. And you guys, I was like, I have no idea what that means. But I heard it very clearly, even though I didn’t know what it meant. I want you to bring souls to me. What? Okay. So the next thing he told me was, Denise, I want to be fully integrated into every area of your life. You see, at this point, I let the Lord into my marriage, my parenting, my food, my weight, but professionally? Publicly? Really? Are you sure? And it was clear. He said, I want to be fully integrated into every area of your life. So I started investigating, what would it be like to be Christian publicly? I mean, I almost thought that was like professional suicide.
But I wasn’t willing to not do what the Lord said. So I thought, well, what would it look like, what would it look like if I were a Christian wellness coach. Dare I be Catholic, publicly Catholic. Well, you guys, you’re going to hear me say this over and over, but if you give the Lord a crack of willingness, he will throw the door open and flood your heart and just make it happen.
So I started to become a Catholic health and weight loss coach. I started working with this company called Made for Greatness. A life coaching company for Catholic moms. And part of the work that I did there was I was their health and weight loss coach. And they wanted to create a weight loss program that was based on the new approach that I brought.
And the new approach that I brought that they hadn’t heard before was how to fully integrate the Lord into every aspect of your food and weight struggles. So they said, Denise, We want you to create a weight loss program. I said, yes, I will do that. And so I took my notebook, a blank notebook, and I sat in adoration.
I sat in front of the blessed sacrament I went to him and I said, Lord, what do they need to hear? And what do you want them to know so that they can quiet all the chaos in their brains, all the confusion so that your voice is louder? And I just started to be his secretary. He said, I want them to know this. And then I want them to know this and I want them to have this tool.
everything that he revealed I would ask myself , will this help quiet the noise, the noise means like quiet, the confusion, quiet, the chaos, quiet, the spinning out of thoughts, quiet, that. So they can hear his voice and what his voice sounds like is peace and clarity and simplicity.
So you will often hear me say that if it’s simple and peaceful, it’s from the Lord. If you feel clarity, it’s from the Lord and that’s what we want with food and weight. Peace, simplicity, and clarity. And so I became his secretary. And I created this program based all on what he wants you to know. And that’s the Weight Loss with the Holy Spirit program.
It’s helping you fully integrate the Lord into your food and weight loss journey. It’s giving you real world, practical, earthly tools. So that you can quiet the food noise, get clarity on what your food should look like, get clarity on where to focus your attention. I really wish that I could say praying got me where I am today.
And prayer was a big part, but you guys, I just needed some earthly tools to be able to do my part, to be able to enjoy my food without guilt, to be able to enjoy my food without letting it consume me. The Weight Loss with the Holy Spirit program is a step by step program that says start here, we’re going to create some clarity and peace in your life.
We’re going to get you lasting weight loss results no matter what season of life you’re in. And so that’s the program. And to support that program, We thought we would teach in this podcast that new approach. Get his message out there. I truly believe that this is what he wants. You guys already hear that this message is way different than what traditional weight loss methods are teaching in
every other area of their life, their marriage. They’re children, they’re parenting, they’re jobs, they’re sick parents. This is his invitation, and he’s calling you to integrate him into maybe that final place where you’re not letting him in, into your food and weight loss. I mean that’s where I was, I was like, hey lord you can have every other area of my life, I’ve got the food thing, I’m gonna take care of that on my own.
Yeah, no he wants all of us. He wants to be part of every area of our life. And when we do that, we have lasting peace. We have lasting results. And what I mean by lasting results is you get to learn how to live at a healthy weight, your healthy weight, for the rest of your life, no matter what season of life you’re in.
You see, this program goes with you and grows with you. You just learn tools and tips and hacks. That adjusts to no matter what your taste buds are, no matter what season of life you’re in, no matter what your schedule looks like. It works for every woman. Married, single, pregnant, postpartum, empty nester, doesn’t matter who you are.
It’s effective. But this podcast is to simply give you hope that there’s a different way, that what you’re seeing out there. Let’s make a plan. Oh, don’t stick to it because the plan wasn’t made for you. You feel horrible about yourself. We’re just going to have the truth. We’re going to have the truth in weight loss.
We’re going to do things His way, the Lord’s way. And His ways are simple and peaceful and give you clarity and hope. So if the way that you’ve been trying to lose weight doesn’t feel simple, peaceful. Doesn’t feel clear. And it doesn’t make you feel hopeful. And it’s not his way. And it’s time to learn a different way.
