Abstract

Come with me into the Tenth Reformed Church on a Wednesday evening. The midweek events (children’s programming, youth groups, adult classes) are wrapping up. We find room 11, where a group of lively, enthused adults have just finished a session of the Weigh Down Workshop. We ask members of the group if they’d be willing to stay a bit longer and share their experiences of Weigh Down with us. This request immediately creates a sense of electricity in the room, as Gwen Shamblin’s converts eagerly share their dramatic testimonies of weight loss.
