Christian Weight Loss App

Note: This app is now available. Click here to see the app in the iTunes store.

I Deserve a Donut is not your typical weight loss app. It’s actually a renewing-of-the-mind tool that will help you, not only with eating, but also with some of the other struggles in your life. Even your other bad habits if you adjust the questions just a tad.

Here are just a few of the 34 topics covered on this app:

  • Emotional Eating
  • Anger
  • Justification Eating
  • Worry
  • Holiday and Vacation Eating
  • Insecurity
  • Garbage Disposal Eating
  • Regret
  • Procrastination

About the App:

Here’s how it works:

The minute you feel like breaking your boundariesturn on the app. Look at the categories and see which one fits your situation. Click on it, and you’ll see a bunch of questions and Bible verses.

Answer the questions truthfully. They’re designed to point out the lies that are making you want to break your boundaries. Pray through the Bible verses. They’ll help you see life and food from God’s perspective.

90% of the time, you’ll find your desires changing right there on the spot – which will make it easier to say no to whatever is tempting you.

Here’s a sample of how I use the questions in my own life:

When No One is Commenting On Your Blog

Here’s a sample of the questions and Bible verses on the app: 

I’ll be posting more Bible verses and questions in the future for those of you who don’t have an iPod, iPhone, or iPad. To see a list of questions and verses to come, click here.

Weight Loss Bible Study

If you’d like to do a free weight loss Bible study that corresponds to the categories on the app, click here. For a Bible study on emotional eating, click here.

Future Projects

I’m working on getting the app questions and Bible verses into an e-book form with clickable links. If you’re interested in that, please sign up for the mailing list, and I’ll let you know when I have it ready.

    Wow Barbara.. great idea! Did you come up with this idea and have it developed or did you find it from someone else?

    • Barb says:

      It was my idea – I’ve been using questions like these with my local Bible studies for a long time. They really help to change desires, as do the Bible verses obviously. I had it programmed by my oldest son who is an iPhone app programmer.

      • Carey says:

        Wow… sounds great. I’ve been considering a couple of Iphone apps… would you mind putting me in touch with your son to see if what I’m thinking is #1 – doable, and #2 – affordable? Thanks! You can send to my email if you still have it.

    Hi Barb,

    The application concept is great. I am sure it would really help deal with the many questions that plague ones’ mind. Have you considered to do an android version of the application as well? I love it. Great work Barb. God bless you.

    • Barb says:

      I probably won’t unless I get a sudden influx of money as they’re so expensive to make – but I’d be happy to e-mail you the questions if you’d like. Just click on the “About” tab to find my e-mail address and e-mail me with your e-mail and I’ll send them to you.
