Success Stories of Real People. Just Like You.
I'm forever thankful for my wife, Anjie, mother-in-love, Shirlene, and, of course, Travis Martin, Tyler Mathis, Melanie McKenley, Melissa Paris, and all my Shibboleth family for all the things you have shown me! Now, I have lost 84 pounds and I don't have body aches anymore. I have more energy, my clothes fit, and I can breathe! I am train at the gym 4-5 days a week and I am still learning. I am still overcoming the mindset I have had toward food, but now I have the tools to do so. Bless the name of the Lord!
I want to share a little info with my Shibboleth family. I NEVER liked taking pictures because well, as you can see me in the blue shirt and shorts i was in a 2X, seldom in a 1x top and 20/22 size pants. In September 2016, my coworkers convinced me to visit a Shibboleth meeting. I went, i was a little hesitaant but i went. I showed up at Salem Baptist Church, nervous but i knew that Donna Hardin, Gayle Gazaway and Chris Griffin would be there so i was a little more comfortable. I signed up and weighed in at 212.4 lbs, i was told that i would get an email with my starter kit info in a day or two. Before I left, I was giving a packet and Jason Whitener said here you go read this...lol I took it home, read it, or thought i did and since i figured i would get the starter packet i took it upon myself to stop at Mcdonald's and i got me a sausage mcmuffin meal, and a thing of cinnamon melts :) I figured i have another day or two... Then for lunch i had Arby's...lol Then after a... Read More
I would like to thank Jason Whitener, Travis Martin, Sasha Martin, Joan Shibboleth, Tyler Mathis (no longer with us physically), my coworkers and all the Shibboleth employees and members for all the support and tools they offer to help you meet your goals. One piece of advice is all members need to use the resources available even the calculator. My husband gets annoyed sometimes because i am calculating. If it dont work, i keep moving on. On 3/13 at my Dr. visit I was told my diabetes is now in remission, no longer on medication, was taken off blood pressure and two cholesterol medications as well. Now I did have times where i gained some during my journey but do not feel discouraged it works and reach out to the staff for help. I thank Shibboleth for the new way of life, not a DIET. I as of this morning completed the Hemp bar challenge and as of this morning I am 153.8 making total weight loss of 58.60 lbs. YAY ME! Now the real work starts to maintain it since i am now in a LARGE size for tops and size 12 pants and 14 in dresses (with zippers, LOL) THANK YOU ALL for the support.
I am so thankful for Shibboleth and everything Travis Martin and Sasha Martin does for this ministry. I feel like you saved my life!

I have struggled with my weight all my life. My beautiful daughter took these pictures and put them together so that I could finally see what everyone else could see. She made me cry happy tears. This is the only weight loss program that has ever worked for me. I finally see the 34 lbs I have lost..
I am beyond blessed. Thank you everyone!
Huge Thank you to Amy Shibboleth, Brooklyn Martin-Shibboleth, Sasha Martin, Joan Shibboleth, Jason Whitener!!! I may not have met all of you but you keep me going with just your encouraging words & helpful tips!!!

In honor of Face to Face Friday, and earning my 25lb badge (32 total today) and my tshirt! I showed the picture on the left to someone whose approval I have sought my entire life, their response, "looks the same to me". But there is so much different. That girl on the left had let grief control her for over a year, she let food and alcohol fill a void that she thought would never be filled again. And then one random day when cleaning out spam, she found her way to this group, back to the Lord and to hope. That girl on the right, her smile is genuine, she has hope and she has learned to LIVE again. I am 32 pounds down today, halfway to goal, but my celebration today is for far more than a physical appearance. If you are new, just know that every person here wants you to succeed and live! We are all in this together and I am so happy to have found a special group of likeminded individuals!
There is no way to say thank you to everyone who contributes in this group, to everyone who steps out and shares their success, but most of all to Travis Martin and Sasha Martin for all they give of themselves to each and every member.
Thank you to the Shibboleth family for all your support and for this great lifestyle change that we know that we can live with. Love you all for giving our lives back.

BRENDA SUE BURK
Hi my name is Brenda Sue Burk and this is my story. On Feb. 14, 2016, I went for my yearly physical and was told that I was pre-diabetic with an A1C of 7. My doctor told me if I didn’t lose weight that I would have to go on diabetes medication. I didn’t want more medicine because I was already taking 2 blood pressure pills, cholesterol pill, lasix, and nexium. I had heard about Shibboleth through people at my church that had been on it and lost lots of weight. I decided to go to one of the meetings although I was skeptical. I had been on just about every diet there is out there and after a little success I would start gaining my weight back. I started on Shibboleth on March 16, 2016 and have never looked back. It is the best decision I ever made. To date I have lost 60lbs and 30 inches. I have been able to come off of one of my BP medicines, lasix, and have been able to cut my dose on my cholesterol medicine in half. My A1C is now 5 and my cholesterol is 117. #BLESSTHENAMEOFTHELORD
Thank you Travis Martin and Sasha Martin for having the insight to start this program. I feel it has literally saved my life. Thank you Jason Whitener for teaching me the Shibboleth lifestyle and how it works. I love the Shibboleth lifestyle and never plan to go back to letting food control my life again!!
The Shibboleth Planet is working. My official weight loss as of today is 69.7 pounds, with 35 inches lost. If you need to lose the weight, come get on the Shibboleth Planet with us, we can all do it together. The Shibboleth family will be with you and best of all, Our Father God will be with us all. I’m 30 pounds from my goal weight!
LARRY THOMAS COLE
To me personally, Shibboleth is a lifestyle not a diet. I have done diets and they have worked, but I could never keep the weight off. I saw friends and neighbors doing the Shibboleth program and I knew that I could do it too. Once you understand the lifestyle, the program is easy. I lost 70 lbs in aprox 6 months and have kept it off for 4 months. #blessthenameofthelord #bodybyshibboleth
I won't ever need another diet, I have the Shibboleth lifestyle. I have the support of friends I have made while doing the program. Come get started on the lifestyle!
Thank you Shibboleth lifestyle and staff for all the help!
EDDIE AND VICKIE KERR
I started my journey on January 25th 2016 and on my 6 month weigh in July 25th 2016, I have lost a total of 60 pounds. I have a lot more to go but with the help of the good Lord and Shibboleth I know I can do it. I have tried many many things in the past that has never worked. But this does. It is something you can stick to from now on. You can get all of your food from the grocery store and eat at most restaurants. I have Hashimoto's disease and PCOS which makes it very hard to lose weight. But it is slowly working. I greatly appreciate the support from Jason whitener. I have also come off of my blood pressure and cholesterol medicine. I am able to walk now without dying and I will be participating in my first 5k next month.
Thank you Shibboleth for helping me get my life back!
Thank you to the Shibboleth family for all your support and for this great lifestyle change that I know that I can live with. Love you all for giving my life back.
DIANE GOODE SCOTT
I started this diet journey in Feb. 2016. As of December 31, I am down 90 lbs. At the beginning of December, I joined Shibboleth with an awesome group of people and have lost more in three weeks than I have since the beginning. So excited to see what 2017 will bring!!!
I lost 90 lbs in 10 months!
What a difference from last year! I lost 53 lbs in 5 1/2 months with Shibboleth and am in the best shape I have been in 20 years.

Before Shibboleth, I was just existing. I wasn't living. I was numb inside, well other than the misery and pain I lived in everyday. I hated myself. I was miserable and I made others around me miserable too. I didn't want to go anywhere or do anything and Lord forbid I see someone I hadn't seen in a while. I was so ashamed of the weight I had gained. Food made me happy and made me hate life at the same time. It was my drug. It was really hard to find pictures of myself before my weight loss because I hid from the camera. My family is a huge picture taking family. Every get together we have to take pictures. I would dread it so bad. And once the picture was taken I warned them they better not post it on Facebook or anywhere else. I never wanted to see it again and I didn't want anyone else to see it either. I mean, I reported my own sister to the Facebook authorities for posting a picture of me that I didn't ok for her to post! Who does that?! LOL! This is awful and embarrassing, but it's the...

Because of Shibboleth, Travis Martin and his team, I'm happy again, my husband is happy, my daughter is happy and I can really smile again.
I should honor Him and use the tool he has given me, that's Shibboleth. I am so grateful to Sasha,Travis and the whole team for following God's plan for them.
CANDI POE KEELER
I started Shibboleth on Feb 4th, 2016 weighing 278 lbs size 22. I could hardly put on my shoes or tie them by myself. It was a very difficult task to put my pants on. I couldn't stand at my kitchen sink or stove for over 5 minutes due to my back killing me. I lost 11 lbs my first week. I took my Mom back home with me on hospice on Feb 16th. She passed away Feb 26th. By this time (22 days) I had already lost 21 lbs. Normally this would've been the end of my weight loss but not this time. I'd lost 40 lbs in 9 short weeks!! I've lost 60 lbs and went from size 22 to 16. I feel better than I've felt in so many years even though I'm still heavier. I have a long way to go but look at what has already been done!! I thank God for giving me strength to continue during my weak times. I'm now weighing in at 218 and I'm excited about being below 200 within the month for the first time in 11 years. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians... Read More
I thank God for the Shibboleth Team for them allowing God to use them and share all the tools we need to live healthier, happier and longer!
Thank you Travis and Sasha Martin for the gift of Shibboleth! Thank you God for giving me the strength to do this! I love Planet Shibboleth and ALL of my Shibboleth family very much!

I get up every day and watch one of Travis's videos and learn more about food and what it does in our bodies. So I had my 15 year old son, EVAN, captive one day while we were driving into Nashville and I was telling him all that I had learned from Travis and he just said, "Mama, that sounds like something I think I can do because it makes a lot of sense"! So I told him that if he will just do everything I said like Travis tells us that he will lose the weight and the very next day he started on the program and he sticks to it... He is very determined when he gets his mind set on something. I believe that was the end of January or first of February and up to now he's lost a little over 60 pounds!
My son has lost 60 pounds doing Shibboleth!!!
God bless you Travis Martin, Jodi Harbin, and all the sweet Shibboleth family for your knowledge and support. I am forever grateful.
I started my Shibboleth journey 1 year ago, today! Giving GOD all the glory for every pound and inch that I have gotten rid off!! 60 lbs. gone for good!!! (Haven't reached my goal yet, but, taking one day at a time.) I could not have done this without God's help...Phil. 4:13!!
So thankful for Travis Martin and all our wonderful mentors!!
I thanked God for Travis Martin and Sasha Martin, as well as the rest of the amazing Shibboleth team who are committed to helping others become more healthy daily and sacrificing so much. Looking forward to being on this journey for a very long time together!

"Before I found Shibboleth, I weighed 350 lbs. I was depressed, in constant pain in my joints and I felt hopeless. I had lap band surgery in 2003 and failed at maintaining my weight loss. I got on my knees and prayed for God to show me the way to getting my life back. It was through God's grace that I found Shibboleth. I have just celebrated my 2nd year anniversary with the program and have lost 170 lbs. In August, I will have my second reconstructive surgery done and I will be at my final weight loss goal. I am finally free of my aches and pains and look like I did when I was 16 years old."
Shibboleth is not a diet. It is a lifestyle that you can live with and achieve your goals. It is well worth the small investment to get your life back. Love you Travis Martin and Sasha Martin and team Shibboleth!
There have been so many victories and so much success in my weight loss journey, I sometimes think I don't even realize all that GOD has accomplished!

"I have to give it up for God again. He deserves all the glory, honor, and praise for it all. I have to share my praise report along with God's goodness. I started the Shibboleth journey late February. Since this journey, I have learned discipline, patience, and willpower. All of these factors was much needed in my life; not just for eating right, but for my personal life, spiritual life, and career. Since my last weigh in, I'm knocking on 51 lbs weight loss and almost 18 total inches. I have lost some in every area of my body. PRAISE GOD!!!"
I can't go without giving thanks to all the Shibboleth family and mentors. A special thanks to Travis Martin and Sasha. Thanks everyone for pouring yourselves into us; not just mentally and physically, but spiritually. Thank you God!!!
Thank you, Travis, for encouraging us to study God's Word! I know I could not have done this without all of the Shibboleth Family! Thank you Travis, Sasha and Angela and all others who post on Facebook and work behind the scenes- I know God sent me to you and you have saved a life!!
"This is a great program . . . well, "program" probably doesn't do justice to it when you throw in the spiritual and community aspects. I lost all my weight -- 80 lbs. -- on the program, and have kept it off for for over two years, the last two months on Planet Shibboleth. I have only gotten 10 lbs. over my original goal once, that being right after Christmas last year. It melted off quickly after that."
I appreciate the care and time that has been put into all of this. I am grateful. God bless you all!!!
Not only were we successful on Shibboleth, but it is a lifestyle that we will live forever!
My Shibboleth journey started with buying a pair of 24W jeans for my oldest son's first birthday party. They were really too tight, but I was too mortified to get a bigger size. So I'm at the party, sitting in the floor opening presents with Mark and I literally can't breathe. Those pants I brought were hurting they were so tight. I have to excuse myself from opening presents and get Anthony, my husband, to finish up the gift opening. That was the moment I knew I had to do something, anything I was miserable! I missed out on making so many memories because either I was too embarrassed to be in pictures or I literally couldn't do it. I didn't have the energy or the breath. Thank the Lord I found Shibboleth about a month later. I lost 130 lbs in less than a year. It's been over 3 years since my journey started. I've even had another baby, but throughout my pregnancy I stayed faithful to Shibboleth. I can never go back to the person I was 3 years ago, missing out on life because of my weight.
Thank the Lord I found Shibboleth. I lost 130 lbs in less than a year. My mission now is to help others start living and making memories too!
I have more energy than I have had in over 20 years. I have made Travis Martin's my "LIFESTYLE" and plan to do it for the rest of my life.
The last 5 years for me has been a hard battle. I had a baby in 2008 and she was 6 months old I found out I had cancer. The doctors wouldn't let me lose my baby weight until I completed chemo. I gained 45 pounds while I was pregnant and more weight while I was doing chemo. I did 3 years of chemo and the doctors removed my port and last year and told me that I could start trying to lose my weight back down. I tried on my own for several months and lost some of the weight, but then Shibboleth came into my life. I have only been on this 3 months and I am back down to where I was before I had my daughter. I went back to the doctor 3 weeks ago and they gave me a perfect bill of health. No signs of cancer and all my blood work is perfect. I have my energy back and I feel better than I ever have. After doing chemo, I never thought I would feel like myself again.
Thanks to Shibboleth, I am happy, healthy and feel beautiful again. I pray that God bless you and your team. You are doing a great job!!!
Not only did we lose weight, but we met, and became friends with two of the most genuine people out there. Travis and Sasha truly have a heart to reach and help others!
