Success Stories of Real People. Just Like You.
I’m eternally grateful for Travis and the Shibboleth family. I am down 65 lbs. Here’s the secret. Get started, never quit and get better as you go. These results took over a year and a half and the habits I had when getting started vs the ones I have now are staggeringly different. Anything worth it will take time. This transformation. Your transformation will take time.

Here are some pictures to go along with my 100 lb loss.....Started out as a 26/28 pants and now a 16 and shirts were a 3X and now a large & sometimes an XL.-- THANK YOU EVERYONE!

I went to Dr last week for a follow up and weighed 199. He approves of this program. He has changed my BP medicine in half. I go back in a month and may get to come off of them. He also said that I was diabetic but he changed my diagnosis to history of diabetes.

My Shibboleth journey began when I spent Thanksgiving of 2019 with my family and saw the amazing results of the diet. Three of my siblings and their spouses, whom I hadn't seen for 8-9 months, had been on Shibboleth for about 3-4 months at that time. At Thanksgiving, I realized that I was still in my old world of being significantly overweight. My weight was even limiting my enjoyment of activities that I had previously always been able to fully participate in. As an emergency physician, I see patients daily whose lives are limited and shortened by excess weight, and always knew that I was certainly in that category. I started the diet at 258lb and dropped to a low of 198lb over an 8-month period. I'm 6'4", so I moved on the BMI scale from "morbidly obese" down to "normal". I have been a complete vegan since 2014, but had actually gained a significant amount of weight eating pasta, bread, rice, and other simple carbs. I've found it pretty easy to continue to follow the tenets of the Shibboleth diet and maintain a fully vegan diet. I've stabilized at around 202lb for the past four months. I'm very grateful...

I lost 85 lbs and Ub lost 60. We have traveled 9 out of the last 18 months and maintained our goal weight.

Today marks a milestone in my “Shibboleth journey”. 2 years ago, today, I reluctantly started a “thing” called My Shibboleth. Two young fellas I attend Church with, Jonathan and Josh Montgomery, had started losing weight and after a few months of watching them and seeing they were “seriously losing the weight” and keeping it off, I mustered up the courage to text Jonathan and ask him what In the world he was doing. He shared what he was doing and I actually signed up in June of 2018. I didn’t get serious until August 1, 2018. As you see in the picture on the left, I was a BIG boy. When I actually got the courage to step on the scale it said 308 lbs. I’m quite positive I weighed closer to 320 but that’s where I started. Through the next 6-8 months I lost 70 lbs and through these last 2 years I have maintained 50-55 lbs lost. Sorry for the long post but I’ll always be Thankful for Travis and Sasha Martin......even though I haven’t met them in person, their ministry, their staff and many of you on this site have changed my life. So, hopefully, today I... Read More

Question: How much does 50 lbs of concrete weigh? Answer: The same as 50 lbs of FAT that I just lost in 4 months & 1 week after wholeheartedly committing to the Shibboleth Lifestyle........with the awesome support from the amazing Shibboleth support team - Travis, Kim, Joney, Sasha, Missy, Amy, members on FB, etc.! Thank you ALL!
50 lbs of FAT lost in 4 months & 1 week!
I gave in and by November 13th, I got my 50-Pound Badge and on November 20th, I hit my goal weight.
JUDI LEGRANDE RENSHAW
Hit a new low today - 133. 52 pounds gone. It took me 5 months to lose 50. Get this. I thought I only needed to lose 35. I did that in three months. Then went into maintenance planning on staying at 150. Lost 15 more pounds over the next two months. I have been in maintenance for about 10 months now. Recently, I’ve been doing IMF perfect days during the week and holidays on weekends. Here is how I do IMF. I don’t eat after 6 for sure. It’s normally 5 and often 4. Then I eat again around 8:30 the next morning. In weight-loss mode, I had three meals a day. That was it. In maintenance mode, I have three meals a day and extra and a snack. I truly believe stopping eating early makes a huge difference. ￼ Y’all, get started if you haven’t and keep at it if you have. Maintenance is the place to be. Let nothing stop you.
Hit a new low today - 133. 52 pounds gone.
122.2 lbs gone forever, 25ish to go.
KATIE BURRELL MCGLAMERY 2
I started my weight loss journey in March 2019 weighing 372 lbs, the largest I had ever been in my entire life. I was miserable. From March to July I "YOYO" dieted, taking multiple diet pills, going to Dr after Dr trying to figure out different ways to lose weight. I suffered from severe sleep apnea and high blood pressure. In July 2019, I joined Shibboleth weighing 332 lbs still severely unhealthy and overweight. I was tired of feeling horrible from diet pills and lack of nutrition. The Shibboleth lifestyle has changed my life drastically in just 3 short months I now weigh 258lbs! I have never felt so amazing in my entire life! No longer on a CPAP and almost completely off of blood pressure medicine! Thank you Shibboleth for the opportunity to live again! Bless the name of The Lord!

I have been on the fence about sharing these but after listening to Travis’s live video today, I decided it’s time. About a year and a half ago, I was shopping for jeans and had to move up to a size 18. I refused to buy them. Left the store crying and mad at myself. I decided then that I would lose weight. I have made that decision quite a few times over the years. In February of 2018, I joined Beachbody and started working out and eating better and lost 20 pounds. 6 months later, I had to have my gallbladder removed and lost focus. Before I knew it, I had gained half of it back. Fast forward to May 2019, some friends at church were losing weight like crazy!! They told me about Shibboleth. I joined the next week. Since then, I have lost 25 pounds and am now in a size 12 jean, headed to a 10!!! This program changed my life. It changed my mindset about food and it holds me accountable to GOD ALMIGHTY about the food choices I make. I’m so thankful for Shibboleth and all the wonderful people involved!!

Joining Shibboleth in October 2018 ranks among one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life. 107 lbs down & counting. One piece of advice>>> PHOTOGRAPH EVERYTHING. For meal references when you can’t think of anything & for transformation reference to remember how far you’ve come. I personally, created an Instagram to document my meals, grocery hauls, transformation photos, etc. I can’t tell you how many times this has saved me from a holiday just because I “couldn’t think of anything to eat”.

I started doing Shibboleth on Jan. 23rd of this year. So it's been a little less than 6 months and as of this morning, I have now lost 76 lbs! I am beyond excited!!!
PINKY DELAGRANGE QUICK
I’m past excited this evening. I have lost 70 lbs with Shibboleth. I’m just a few pounds from my goal, but when I started my journey on August 1st, 2018, losing 70 pounds was past my imagination. NOW, as you can see, I haven’t broken any “Shibboleth Records”. I haven’t shed 100 pounds in 6 months (which is very possible) BUT, I have lost weight AND I have enjoyed every part of my journey. SO, if there is someone out there who is struggling.....Maybe the weight isn't coming off as fast as you think it should....My encouragement to you is....... Keep Going!!! Don’t Give Up.........Slow and steady will win the race. I am no one special. There is still a “fat boy” inside of me who is still there, but I just made up my mind he wasn’t going to rule my life. I’ve always been embarrassed to take a side picture because my “gut” stuck out way too far. Today, I can finally say I’m not ashamed after MANY years. Bless the Name of the Lord!!

This is my picture from about two weeks after I started Shibboleth in September and my picture today. I have lost 67 pounds and gone from that 2x/3x shirt to this large dress. This last weight is stubborn and hanging on (and I tell you that almost every day) but I am still pretty darn proud of where I am after seeing this comparison.
I have lost 67 pounds and gone from that 2x/3x shirt to this large dress.
In less than 10 months, I have lost over 100 lbs with Shibboleth.
Posted a pic the other day but these pics are from the day I started Shibboleth, which was June 17th, and then today getting ready for church. Still holding at 50 lbs lost but thought these pics were more presentable and from more angles. Shibboleth works! And I’m pressing on to lose my last 30-40 lbs. haven’t decided yet what my goal is
Still holding at 50 lbs lost but thought these pics were more presentable and from more angles. Shibboleth works!
I finally feel good about myself and have more self confidence than I have in years. I am thrilled to have maintained and even lost a little more after the 5 months. Travis and Sasha, thank you for all that you do! You are truly a blessing in my life!
Can I just brag on my Lord a little bit this morning? Last June I joined Shibboleth thinking it was gonna be just like everything else I’ve tried and that I would fail with in 2 months. I topped the scales at 405 (a number I swore I would never allow myself to reach). The bottom left pictures were my starting place...I was miserable inside and out. By September I met my 10% loss and earned my shirt, took pictures on top right side and was proud of how far I had come along so quickly. I got complacent and comfortable towards the end of the year, those holidays caused me a little slowed progress because I allowed them to. We bought a house and moved right after Christmas and I was seriously riding the struggle bus most of this year (up and down the same 10-15 pounds). But praise and glory to God who answered prayers about my need to get back on track, I knew I had wasted a lot of valuable time I would never get back and all I could do was get up and get with the program...then came the Shibboleth Summer Slimdown challenge! I... Read More
Shibboleth is not just a way of eating, it’s a fully encompassing plan that really makes you fight the mental, emotional and spiritual battles that come with addiction. I’m down 91 lbs and over 42 inches!
I’m so thankful. I am down 76.6 lbs as of this morning. The girl on the left thought she was happy and okay with who she was but on the inside was really so miserable about her size. I can not sing the praises of Shibboleth enough!!

The picture on the left is when I started Shibboleth last year, Jan 2 and 60 lbs heavier. I reached my 60 lb weight loss goal in November and have been maintaining my weight even through the holidays! I was in a size 20-W when I started and happy to say that I now wear a size 12! Haven't been a size 12 in 40 years! I am so happy & thankful for my friends, Sara Chris Weathers and her daughter Ana told me about this program. I only wish I knew about it years ago! I have learned so much from Shibboleth and am truly thankful to God for Travis & all who put this program together. I believe it was God inspired! Thanks to all the Shibboleth family/workers that made & helped me with my weight loss journey! God bless you all!

UB AND MELANIE EUBANKS
After 21 years in the Air Force, my body was starting to wear down. My knees are bad, I had let myself gain a ton of weight, up to 240 lbs. My annual fitness test were becoming excruciating and I was afraid I was going to be faced with Retire or get healthy. After loosing and gaining a little on another program, I saw what Shibboleth had done for some friends. So, at 235 lbs I knew I had to get on board. I started Shibboleth on July 1st 2018 and as of November 17th 2018 I have met my goal weight of 185 (50 lbs!).

This has been the easiest and fastest I have ever lost weight, and more importantly, I have found Shibboleth to be a truly sustainable lifestyle that I can live with to maintain my weight loss.
CAROLYN DAVIS NAPOLEON

4 years ago, I was at the heaviest I had ever been, over 300lbs. I went on a diet and hired a personal trainer and over the course of a year I lost 65lbs, I felt amazing and then of course life got busy and I put back on about 30lbs. So fast forward two years after that, adding more weight, and I was feeling horrible again and starting to get depressed and realized it was time to do something. Then my amazing friends Cathy Vaughn Johnson, Rachel Johnson Jones, Dana Hill Gibson, Sherry Richards Roberson and Dana Parker Rizk introduces me to Shibboleth. Like with any change I was hesitant. However I thought why not let’s try it. So in July, I set a goal of losing 80lbs. It’s been an amazing journey so far and one that I am really enjoying. My group has been my rock and support system constantly encouraging me and for them I am soooo blessed and thankful. I am at my 1/2 way point and feel amazing! It’s been up and down since July however I am very happy where I am so far and excited to see where I get to! If... Read More
I am at my 1/2 way point and feel amazing! It’s been up and down since July however I am very happy where I am so far and excited to see where I get to! If this encourages just one person, it’s so worth it. Don’t give up! The Shibboleth lifestyle is the best!!!
If you work the program, it will work for you. It literally has saved my life. I also gained a huge family of support and friends. My family and my Shibboleth family has encouraged me the entire way. I feel better, look better and love buying clothes again. Please join! It’s the best money you will ever spend!!
SONDRA DUANE MCCARTY
I started the program to help my husband to lose weight. I knew we needed to eat healthier but I needed a plan. When I started the lifestyle there was no stopping me. I felt great and saw results quickly. 53 lbs gone and I’m not going back!

I heard about Shibboleth from a co-worker and some friends I go to church with. I was very hesitant about it because I’m a very picky eater. I never eat vegetables. I pretty much ate fast food, junk food. I thought why would I pay for something that I probably won’t do. I have tried so many times to loose weight and I would loose some but then gain it back. So on October 23rd 2017, I decided it was time for a change. I paid the $99 dollars for the 1 year membership. I was determined this time. I prayed to God. I know I can’t do this alone and You need to help me change my eating habits. I weighed right around 200 pounds and I put my goal to be 140. 8 months later, I hit my goal weight and have maintained it. This lifestyle is wonderful. I tell people that if I can do this anyone can. I encourage anyone that if you need to loose weight this is the way to go.

I started Shibboleth at 262lbs, almost the same weight as the before pic here. And this is me from today at 220lbs. after losing 42lbs in 4 months on Shibboleth. I’m not where I want to be, but I’m sure not where I used to be!
Though I’ve been overweight since I was a teenager. Things in my life had aided me to be even more of an emotional eater in recent years. Terribly missing my children & grandchildren when I moved from California to Georgia. I am the youngest person in Georgia to have both knees replaced at the same time due to arthritis, but most of all the unexpected tragic death of my husband last year. I joined Shibboleth but was not ready to start. I gained even more weight and at 250 lbs I knew I was done gaining and needed to do something about it! I was eating 1 bottle of Tums every 2 days. I would wake up choking & vomiting in my sleep every night. I spent the next 4 months trying to lose weight on my own and lost 12 lbs. I then found my “Why” and wrote it on my mirror (with dry erase markers) along with some weight loss motivational quotes in my bathroom where I would see it everyday and went back to Shibboleth to learn my new lifestyle! Since being on Shibboleth, I don’t even recall the last time I had heartburn. I now have... Read More
I now have energy I didn’t even know existed, I feel great! I used to look at pictures of others on their Shibboleth journey and dream one day that could be me....well I am not at goal yet however I am down 70 lbs with all the inspiration, prayers, and guidance from everyone!
I can't imagine life without Shibboleth!

The number 13 has always been my lucky number so it is very fitting that I would reach my 1st HUGE weight loss goal October 13th! Today 100 pounds are GONE forever!!! I can't even begin to explain how excited and how very proud I am of myself. This has been a VERY long journey. I wish I could say that it only took a year, but it actually took 4, but I can honestly say that I will NEVER go back to being the person I was!!!! I went from wearing a size 22/24 to a size 12 (and they are getting pretty loose) and from a size 2xl/3xl shirt to a m/l. I have only been on planet Shibboleth for 1 month, but I have lost 17 of those pounds in that month. I can honestly say that Shibboleth works because I had been at a stand still since December of last year and have been rocking it since September 10th! I am so happy my mom Ruth Linn Fouts bought me a membership for my birthday. ❤️I still have 24 more pounds to get to my ultimate goal but I know I will get there pretty quick... Read More
Today 100 pounds are GONE forever!!!
I hit my goal weight after trying and failing for more than 6 years. I have lost 53.75lbs since April, thanks to the Shibboleth lifestyle.
MICHAEL AND KELLY CARSON BROCK
We have four small children and lead very busy lifestyles. So when Michael had to have back surgery in December 2017 and the doctor said the surgery went well, but he had to lose weight, we knew we needed to do something. We attempted to eat better, but experienced the yo-yo effect for several months. When we started seeing friends have great results with the Shibboleth lifestyle, we decided to give it a try. We eat normal foods and even enjoy fudge pops or ice cream often which allows us to not feel deprived. We still have holidays, but don’t allow ourselves to always reside off the plan too long. I had a roughly 8 day stretch that I went off the plan. However, when I got back to perfect days, my weight quickly went back down within 2-3 days. Learning proper food combinations has helped us view eating in a different way, and is a lifestyle that we can maintain. Since June 1st we have lost a combined 80 lbs and dropped several clothes sizes. Michael is down 54 lbs and I am down 26 lbs. He is only 5 lbs away from his lowest adult weight ever! I... Read More
Since June 1st we have lost a combined 80 lbs and dropped several clothes sizes. Michael is down 54 lbs and I am down 26 lbs. He is only 5 lbs away from his lowest adult weight ever! I am at the lowest weight I have been since before having my four kids. We are so very thankful for the program!
I'm off 5 meds for my diabetes, which means I'm only on one now at the lowest dose.
I am so grateful to my daughter for introducing me to Shibboleth. I had never done any kind of diet before because I already ate less and healthier than I had when I was younger, but I kept gaining weight over the years until I reached 195 pounds. I'm only 5'3" so that was quite a lot. I always knew that it would have to be all or nothing for me - I know my personality and I knew "cutting back" would not work. I have had a lot of health issues: rheumatoid arthritis, colon cancer, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, depression, and most recently I suddenly developed stage 3 kidney disease. Coke was my biggest hurdle to overcome because that was pretty much all I ever drank. As I watched my daughter do the program and saw that most of what she was eating was stuff I liked anyway I decided to set a start date and give it a shot. I set my goal at 150 because I never thought it would happen. I am now at 138 and still losing. My kidney function has increased substantially and I am almost out of range to be considered to have kidney disease,... Read More
I have gone from a size 16 to a size 6 with only changes in my diet, no exercise (although I need to bc now that I'm pretty thin, I want to tone up). When you first start it may seem overwhelming but once it clicks, you can just watch your clothes and the pounds fall off. I am so grateful. My husband now calls me "Slim"! Love it!
I’ve lost 37 lbs and have reached my happy weight! I'm enjoying maintenance with the Shibboleth lifestyle!
After almost giving up on losing weight, a dear friend had me go to a simple class that changed everything for the better! I'm now down 101 lbs and that is all thanks to the tools that I learned with this wonderful program! Shibboleth works!!!

LISA CROSBY POLACEK
I started my journey on May 14, 2018 at 211 pounds. I had a stent place the previous December and I knew I had run out of excuses. I was already exercising and I knew that would be to my advantage. I was referred to the program by Dr Rebecca Holden who is a good friend and great Chiropractor in my area. We worked and attempted to lose weight together but both of us struggled. I spoke with her in May and she told me about Shibboleth and that she had lost a lot of weight on it. I joined the next day with a coworker and we never looked back. I set a short term goal of 40 lbs by November 1st then changed it to Oct 1st because I was doing so well. Now I’m just 3 lbs away and it’s barely September... This program and the support system is amazing and I am proud to be a part of this huge and growing family!

AMANDA WITHEROW BRANSON
I was at my heaviest last year, weighing the same that I did (if not a little more) as when I delivered my daughter in 2004 and I was miserable! I had tried every program out there – low carb, low fat, Weight Watchers, Trim Healthy Mama and NutriSystem just to name a few and while they would work for the first couple of weeks not one of them were lifestyles that I could actually maintain long term resulting in me gaining back any weight lost and then some. I went to see my doctor last year and happened to chat with his nurse after she weighed me about how none of the programs I had tried worked and that I was at a complete loss – in enters Shibboleth! I made a bet with my doctor that I could lose 30 lbs in a year – he took the bet and I left scared to death but thankfully his nurse had written www.myshibboleth.com down on a sticky note for me. I signed up in July 2017 but didn’t really start the plan until around October or November 2017. I lost 15 lbs right off the bat and then plateaued... Read More
My doctor was floored when I saw him two weeks ago – he didn’t believe I could even come close to 30 lbs and ended up being just 5 lbs shy of the goal.
I lost 63 lbs and my husband Tony lost 62 lbs.

I started Shibboleth in February! I have been on countless diets in the past. Some worked and some didn't. With Shibboleth I have changed my eating lifestyle and it's amazing!

I joined Shibboleth and landed on the planet on April 16th at a weight of 260 lbs. I’m 50 years old a little over four months later and I’ve lost 70 pounds! Im only 20 pounds from my goal for a total of 90 pounds to lose. Best decision i have ever made!

I went back to school in 2016 and knew it was going to be a tough 1.5 years. What I didn’t know was that I’m an emotional eater. I gained up to 220 pounds. I knew I needed to lose weight but I felt I needed to get through school first. After graduation I found the “Planet”. My Why is my son John, who is disabled and my career choice. I’m now a licensed massage therapist and can’t have my big ole gut bumping into the client as I massage. My first weigh in was at 210.8 pounds on June 3rd. I’m now at 178.6 pounds and feel fantastic. It’s amazing at the energy I have now. I’m so thankful I’ve found Shibboleth. Taking back my life and loving it!!

I started Shibboleth in January of this year for the second time. I let “life” get in the way of my goal last time but this year I wasn’t letting anything get in my way! Shibboleth saved my life! From feeling depressed, unable to fit into any of my clothes and feeling no self worth at my downest moment, I found Shibboleth again. I went to meetings. I had so much help and support from the staff and also members from Shibboleth. Without all of them, I don’t think I could have done it! My weight on January 8th 2018 (the day I started back) was 189.8 and today I weigh 133.6. I’ve lost 56.2 pounds just since January and that to me is absolutely amazing! I love my Shibboleth. It’s not just a “diet” to me, it’s definitely my way of life now.

Shibboleth has given me my life back, I am no longer sitting on the sidelines, I am living and participating in each day! I have lost more than 50 lbs, stopped taking 2 medications and have gone from a size 18/20 to 8.

So my story is a crazy and long story but seeing myself in this picture makes me cry. Happy tears for sure. The struggle has been real. I've been a yo-yo dieter for the past 20 years. I'm great at losing 20 to 25 lbs but then stop and gain that and then some right back. Well in 2017 I got really sick. It was a terrible year for me. In and out of the hospital. Diagnosed with Graves' Disease, gallbladder surgery, some female surgeries, and ended the year in a huge hypo state having to have my thyroid removed and found out I had thyroid cancer. Well I was at my highest weight EVER. I'm only 4'10 so my weight just sits on me and shows everywhere. At 218 pounds, I had enough and was miserable. In January of 2018 some of my friends had told me about Shibboleth at work and they have had great results and look and feel amazing so I began my journey on the planet on Jan 22nd and haven't looked back. I am down 52 lbs and tons of inches lost. I've gone from a 18/20, 1x to 2x in clothing sizes to... Read More
I am down 52 lbs and tons of inches lost. I've gone from a 18/20, 1x to 2x in clothing sizes to a size 12/large and I am NOT stopping.
I've lost 105 pounds and gained confidence and a love for life and adventure. I no longer hide behind my weight and let food live my life for me. I finally loved myself enough to fight for me.

My body has seen some ups and down over the years, 4 babies will do that I suppose, of course I wouldn’t change it for the world. They are some of the sweetest blessings in this life. This last year has been a different kind of year though. One that had caused me to pack on the pounds. Everything in our life changed, States, schools, job situations, and yes even foods. Moving to a different part of the country completely changed the way we ate. I ate out more due to the moving process, I stress ate, I ate to experience all the different foods of our new area. The weight I was gaining started to physically take a toll on me. My sciatica had gotten so severe, it was even painful to walk. I wanted to feel better and be healthier, but felt stuck. I knew about Shibboleth. Tons of my friends did Shibboleth, but I didn’t think it could be for someone like me with the only 20-30 pounds to lose. Then, Mother’s Day weekend, as I was scrolling FB I saw the results of my long distance best friend on her journey with Shibboleth. Seeing her amazing... Read More
20 lbs gone and I feel better and my sciatica is completely gone. I WANT to do this forever. I love it and I am so thankful for it!
I have lost about 85 pounds! I feel better than I ever have before.

Picture on left was 4 years ago at 205 Pounds. Picture on right last week at 140 pounds. I started Shibboleth 8 months ago. I was at 197 Pounds then. I had tried all kinds of diets before I would lose a little then gain it back then lose and gain it back. This program teaches you how to lose and keep it off. I was hesitant about starting it because I am such a picky eater and i doubted myself that I would stick to it. But I was determined this time. I was also motivated by all the other success stories. Shoutout and thank you to Travis Martian and all the Shibboleth team for all the encouragement.

I have a Savior that loves me and placed in my spirit a desire to find the answers that ultimately led me to my home planet Shibboleth. 102 lbs gone!! Very grateful!!
BRIAN K. HALES
I have struggled with my weight my entire life, even overweight as a kid. Shibboleth made weight loss easy for the first time ever, helping me lose 50 lbs. It was a long journey of many different kinds of diets before I found Shibboleth, so I was finally at a point where I was truly ready to make this work and stick! I still have more I want to lose, but I am finally at the lowest weight I have ever been as an adult. I like what I see when I look in the mirror these days!
Shibboleth made weight loss easy for the first time ever, helping me lose 50 lbs.
Today I am off my meds for everything. Today I am at 172 pounds! I still have about 30 to go, but I know with God's help and Shibboleth I will make it.
TAMMY GLEE PRITCHETT
I can’t say enough good things about Shibboleth! I joined at the end of April 2017. I was 53 years old, 5’1”, 189 pounds, two hip replacements, two bad knees and arthritis...I was miserable! I’ve lost 67 pounds following the Shibboleth lifestyle, with NO exercise. I’m so thankful for all the support and encouragement that the Shibboleth team provides! I encourage anyone out there struggling to lose weight to give this program a try. It will change your life!

I am finally in my healthy range for my height and so happy to feel good in my skin and clothes! Bless the name of the Lord!!!
My youngest child was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy in January 2014 when she was just 15 months old. After which, I became severely depressed. I coped by eating and ended up gaining close to 80 pounds. Over the course of the last 4 years, I have tried so many other diets, pills and weight loss programs and could never get beyond 5 days in before completely giving up. Then, I found Shibboleth. I am 6 months in now and down 60 pounds. I still have a little ways to go before reaching my goal weight but without Shibboleth, this wouldn’t have been possible. I have gone from a size 20 down to a size 10 in just 6 months.

I thank God everyday for Shibboleth. I have come off of diabetes medication and I’m finally at a healthy weight. I am down 58 pounds and I’m happy!
I was overweight and my cholesterol was out of control. I just couldn't get it down below 200. I was introduced to Shibboleth by a co-worker in November 2016. I have lost 40 lbs & have kept it off for over a year now. I've been off cholesterol meds for over 6 months. Shibboleth works & I am living proof. Thanks to my Shibboleth family & friends I have made on my journey.

I have been following the lifestyle for the last 2 1/2 years and it has absolutely been life changing! In just the first 6 months, I came off all medicines for PCOS and high blood pressure.
BRENDA SUE BURK
I started on the Shibboleth lifestyle Mar. 16, 2016 weighing 284.4 pounds. I was on 3 blood pressure pills, statins, cholesterol medications and pre-diabetic. On Sept. 14, 2017 I weighted 157.4 for a loss of 127 lbs. I have been in maintenance now for10 months. Shibboleth is a wonderful lifestyle and one that I can live with the rest of my life. I’m off of all of the medications that I was taking when I started and am no longer in danger of getting diabetes. The best thing about Shibboleth is I’m closer to God than ever and I love me! Some people don’t like me like I am and I’m ok with that because this is the person I am and the person who has been hidden behind all that weight! Travis Martin and Jason Whitener have been and continue to be an inspiration to me. All of the Shibboleth team are amazing and do a great job of mentoring us. Thank you all for all you do! I couldn’t have done it without you all. More than anyone I want to Bless the Name of the Lord for being with me on my journey!
I love Shibboleth so much that I am now teaching a class at my church to help others have the same success I have had! My classes are every Monday night, weigh in @ 6-6:30 and the class from 6:30-7:30 pm. Everyone is welcome and your first class is free!! Christ First Church 1008 N. Beaumont Rd. Ringgold, Ga 30736 Come and check us out!!!!
This LIFESTYLE works! It's not a short term fix, you will use these tools for the rest of your life. I'm down a total of 68 lbs.
First let me say, this lifestyle will change your life if you let it!!! I was weighing my heaviest ever. My blood pressure was running 189/110 most of the time. On Jan. 4, 2018, I had finally had enough. I couldn’t find clothes to fit and was just miserable. This program is a God send!!! By April 4, I had lost 43 pounds and a total of 51 inches. Now almost 7 months later, I am down 75 lbs and 69 1/2 inches. I go to the gym now 6 days a week. I feel so much better about myself. Last month, My Dr. took me off blood pressure medicine. I only take vitamins now. Blood pressure says 114/72. If you will work this program, it will work for you. Find your why and remind yourself everyday of it. Ask questions if your not sure. This is your family, so let us help. I am so thankful to God, my friend who accidentally posted on open forum and my Shibboleth family.

I started Shibboleth in June 2016 when I saw the amazing results my sister in law was getting after only 4 weeks on Shibboleth. I have severe osteoarthritis in one knee which had gotten so bad I could hardly walk and with my family health history and blood work numbers, I knew I was headed for even more health trouble if I didn't do something about my weight and nutrition. When I started Shibboleth, I was restricted by my doctor to minimal activity for the first 5 weeks due to some Euflexxa injections I was getting in my knee so not only was I not exercising, but I was also sitting and resting my knee ALOT. Despite this, I lost 17 lbs my first month and a total of 54 lbs in a 5 1/2 month period, surpassing my weight loss goal. As a bonus, my cholesterol, triglycerides, and liver enzymes all returned to a normal range after being elevated for 13 years. My husband, who was not able to carry me across the threshold when we were married more than 20 years ago, can now carry me around anywhere he wants to because I am smaller now than I... Read More

Now over 5 years later it’s still saving my life. Maintaining over 100 pounds of fat loss has been so easy with Shibboleth I tell everyone.
From the days that I was in the 450 lbs range to when I started Shibboleth to Saturday’s weigh in at 227 lbs ...Thank God for my new Shibboleth lifestyle!!!! Bless the name of the Lord at all times!
Thank God for my new Shibboleth lifestyle!
Because of Shibboleth I am off all Novalog insulin, all oral diabetic medications and all but 1/2 dose of a blood pressure medication. Thank you Shibboleth!
In April 2017, I chose to start the Shibboleth lifestyle to be an encouragement for my husband and because I knew I would need to understand how it worked so that I could help with meal preparation and planning. But I also wanted to lose weight myself. Most people probably didn't think I needed to lose any weight but over the last few years I knew I didn't feel good, didn't have any energy and didn't like the way I looked. The weight had continued to creep up and I couldn't seem to get control of my eating habits. I originally set a weight loss goal of 25 pounds but my body stabilized with a 35 pound loss which was reached in 4 months. I would encourage others to attend class weekly and listen to the Daily Doses and videos which are so important for success. I am so thankful to have found Shibboleth, not only for my husband but for me too.
I am so thankful to have found Shibboleth, not only for my husband but for me too.
After a very short time I was finally getting the results that I had strived to get from so many other programs and for over the last 37 years!!
I started Shibboleth on Dec. 27th 2016. I had reached the end of the rope. I had reached a STAGGERING 470 lbs! I knew I didn't have much longer to live. I was miserable. Eating was getting out of control. I had a size 64 waist, 4x-5x shirts. I was embarrassed to go out in the public especially restaurants. I could barely squeeze into a booth; some I couldn't. People stared, felt like crying. I was READY TO GIVE UP!! I parked my car in the Shibboleth parking lot. Scared to go in. Crying in the car, called the ladies inside the center. They talked to me, and I finally went in. When I walked in, I felt the love from the ladies. I felt different. I can't explain the feeling. I started the program THAT DAY. I DID NOT say let me think about it. People say it's hard to understand, it's confusing, different things. It took me a few days but i NEVER said it was hard or confusing. I was DETERMINED! We can do anything as long as we let GOD take over and we follow Him, not Him following us. The 1st week I lost 20... Read More
I actually lost 210 lbs in 47 weeks. That's 5 weeks before my first year! I was in maintenance before my 1 year anniversary.
I was so happy to lose 80 pounds and get to my goal weight in less than a year.
GARY ZIP WILSON
This isn't your traditional success story. As a matter of fact I am still battling the food demon. I have not won but I am winning. Late October of 2016 my wife Phyllis came to me with a new idea she saw on FB where people were losing weight. I pushed back not really wanting to hear about it. She was persistent in wanting us to try. In early November I took a look and told her okay. The whole time I was thinking this was going to be another treadmill that we would be hanging clothes on so to speak. We ordered it and started the program, of all times, the week before Thanksgiving. You know the holiday of food!!!!! LOL Anyway after a week I had lost 10 pounds without really trying. I was amazed. You see I was 403 pounds at my heaviest. For months I tried to lose weight and was only able to lose 10 pounds. So from their I made it to Christmas and was still losing weight. So we continued this journey together for a year and I lost an amazing 140 pounds. Phyllis lost 60. So this year we pretty much maintain... Read More
I can't thank Travis Martin enough for answering Jesus' calling to create Shibboleth. I cannot thank Sasha, you and the entire Shibboleth team for the support and guidance to make this lifestyle fun and family orientated for all.
I've lost weight over 100 lbs in less than 8 months with this amazing new lifestyle.
JESSICA M. BRAMLETT
When I started Shibboleth in January of 2017, I was 285.4, after struggling to lose 30 pounds the year before. I have been overweight most of my life, teased as a child, undermined as an adult. As of March of 2018, I was at 173.2. Not quite at my goal weight and still working at it with more exercise and this wonderful lifestyle. My personal goal and dream would be to look like an athlete and I will someday. We got to have a vision (Prov. 29:18), and there is none too small or too big for God to help you reach it. Could have never done this without Him and Shibboleth. He gave Travis the knowledge to create this wonderful program and us the power to endure it. I love this lifestyle and will continue on this journey for as long as possible.

With Shibboleth I’ve learned how to have portion control and combine foods so that I can lose weight. I reached my goal of 167 pounds on June 22nd.

I have been obese most of my adult life and my health was deteriorating fast. I had a heart attack back in 2016 and only got bigger. I was essentially waiting to die. God put Shibboleth in my line of sight and through his love and the guidance of Jason and Cindy in Dalton and the best support group ever in my fellow classmates like Buddy and Cleo and my family I am now living more like I want to live and feel like I did twenty years ago. All medication has been taken away by my doctor and I have hope for each and every day now. My grand-babies will know who I really am and my wife and daughter get more than the tired old man I was becoming. God bless Travis and Shibboleth for giving my life back to me. January 14th starting weight 389. July 7th 271.4 lbs. To date my total weight loss is 117.6 lbs with 42.25 inches lost overall.

This lifestyle has helped us make the necessary changes to live fuller and healthier lives all while blessing the name of the Lord. We are so thankful for this ministry. It has been 5 months since we began and we have lost a combined 120 lb. (77 for him and 43 for me so far).
ANGELA WALDROP MURPHREE
When I first heard about Shibboleth, I have to be completely honest, as a woman over 40, I was very skeptical that it would actually work. I just didn't believe it would. I didn't struggle with my weight as a child or as a teen, it began in my 20's and gradually got worse. But I honestly thought I could handle it. I could lose it whenever I wanted to. So, I didn't worry about it. I did what I wanted to do. Lived how I wanted to live and ate whatever I wanted, when I wanted, how much I wanted. I over indulged, for sure. Now, fast forward about 25 years. July, 2017. I was 44 years old, pre diabetic and on BP meds since 2014. I knew there was a problem, nobody had to tell me. I knew I was fat, nobody had to tell me. I knew it!! I had tried so many other programs to get the weight off. The problem quickly became, KEEPING the weight off. Nothing was designed as a lifestyle to keep the weight off so the so-called "fix" was literally temporary. I got sick of the up and down yo-yo effect and... Read More
That was the best $99 I have ever spent and would spend it over and over again. Shibboleth is NOT hard. Being fat was hard, hard on me and hard on my family. If someone like me, with an obese riddled family background (on both sides) can face the diet devil head on and fight it tooth and nail and lose 126 lbs in 10 months, anyone can. Shibboleth is easy.
I started Shibboleth in June 2015 245.8 lbs. Lost 83 lbs in 6 months concentrating on fastest weight loss combinations, very little holidays, as many challenges as I could do. I was successful.
DEBBIE LAWLESS SOSEBEE
Started the lifestyle on January 16 2018. I am now in maintenance and have lost a total of 64.4 pounds! Starting weight was 244.4. I now weigh 180 pounds. I always had the want to. This program showed me how to. Thank you to my entire Shibboleth family. Special shout out to Angela Maltz, Joe Hite, Bee Shibboleth, Sasha Martin, Brooklyn Martin Shibboleth, Sandy and Carmen for all of the continued support.
I am now in maintenance and have lost a total of 64.4 pounds!
I am still maintaining SIXTY pounds weight loss (I lost 60 pounds in 6 months and have maintained since) ....even through the holidays!!!
Bless the name of the Lord! I made it to my goal weight today! Down 63 pounds since April 2017. A big thank you to Travis and Sasha, and everyone on Planet Shibboleth for all the support and encouragement. I love this Shibboleth lifestyle!

It’s almost been a year since I was delivered from depression and I’m so thankful for the grace and love of God! He wants YOU!! He Loves YOU!!

Guys, I started this journey in a tight 22W shorts. I was shocked I was that big but I had no idea cause all I wore was leggings until the beach trip last March. I let myself go. Well I’m SO excited to say that yesterday, I went and tried on some shorts and AHHHHHH I’m wearing a SIZE 10!!!!! I’ve never been in a Size 10! You can see the excitement on my face. My goal size has been an 8 but at this rate, ya never know I might see a size 6 in my future!
Well I’m SO excited to say that yesterday, I went and tried on some shorts and AHHHHHH I’m wearing a SIZE 10!!!!! I’ve never been in a size 10!

JANICE HINES HAMRICK
In 2001, I had yo-yo'ed my way up to over 300 pounds and opted for LAP-Band Surgery as a last result. I had great results from it and maintained a weight around 190 for almost 15 years. I was happy and active. In January of 2016, I had A-Fib and I feel the medication and less activity helped me put back 45-50 pounds- 242 pounds. My wonderful Physician's Assistant, Mae Johnson kept telling me about Shibboleth and I started the next day. That was March of 2017. This past weekend, October 20, I weighed 187. Now that may seem like a good bit to most of the women, but it is a size 12 for me and I am quite happy. I will continue on the Phase I plan for a bit more until I know I am stable. I would like to lose 5-7 more but I am fine where I am. I have appreciated the plans, challenges and support on the "planet". I also feel the message constantly of breakfast for the Father, lunch for the Son and Dinner for the Holy ghost kept me going. I walk about 5 miles total a day and on the weekends... Read More
So you can see the weight loss was never about vanity. It was about survival. Down 55 lbs!
Praise God for answering my prayer that day at the altar and praise God for Shibboleth! Now, I'm living and loving my life.
I have battled weight loss for.....forever....20 plus years. I regained the same 10 pounds a million times and sometimes more than 10! I worked out consistently and really tried to watch what I ate....but what I ate was for comfort and what I learned is that food is not comfort. It is fuel. That is what a Shibboleth has taught me most. Today is my 6 month Shibboleth anniversary (the end of my 24th week) and I can not be prouder to say that I have dropped FIFTY pounds!!! Investing the time into learning Shibboleth and keeping your days perfect...it is undeniable that it produces results...I mean I did it....after failing to do it for so many years!!
#shibbolethlife is my motto....why not live a lifestyle that allows you to meet goals never thought possible. It is a community filled with success and support and I am so thankful for Joney Garrett introducing me to this amazing lifestyle. I love this planet!
I am HAPPY, I am HEALTHY, I am BLESSED and I am a forever Shibbolithian.

Y'all may get tired of my posts, but I have to share. This seems like the best place, with people who will understand my journey. From the time I was about 9, I was a chubby kid. I will never forget when I was 14, my dad signed our family up for a membership at Douglasville Health and Athletic Club (Gold's Gym on Hospital Dr.). They weighed me, in front of my friend, and I was 184. I was mortified! That was the first time I felt like I was a "big girl." I never felt pretty as a teenager. When I was 20, I went through a low carb, high cardio phase and lost down to 164. I was thrilled, but over the next years gained it back, got married and started having babies. The highest non-pregnancy weight I saw was 242. I've been on a health/fitness journey for over 7 years now, trying everything nutritionally and running my heart out, but staying between 185-190ish. In February, I saw 203.4 and knew I had to do something, so I started Shibboleth. This morning I saw this! I'm not sure when I've ever been in the 150's, maybe when I... Read More
This seems like the best place, with people who will understand my journey.
I thank God for bringing me here to where I am today and for bringing Shibboleth, Travis Martin, Jason Whitener, Tyler Mathis and all my other wonderful Shibboleth family into my life!
APRIL J WILSON LITTLETON
Losing weight is a mind game for sure but pics like these and trying on my size 20-22 pants are such encouragement. I believe you in always loving yourself, if you love yourself and feel confident at 400 lbs then you go girl! For me that wasn't the case I felt like a prisoner in my body and that's why I've worked so hard to feel the freedom I feel now. I share my journey with you all because I truly hope to encourage those of you that feel as miserable as I did to work hard and gain the success I have because I promise if I COULD, YOU CAN!
This program is amazing!
I'm down 65 pounds!!
My Pedro is down 40 lbs as of this morning and was dancing unto The Lord rejoicing for what God has done at church. As, Buddy Vanmeter knows, truck drivers like Pedro can have soda and get a lot of junk food with the points from refueling. Its a choice they make to live this lifestyle.
I just wanted to thank Travis, Sasha Martin & Jason Whitener for all the time & resources you've invested in our family. I am the only member but my husband and daughter have also benefited.
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!
LIZ ALLEN CLARK
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.

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.

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!

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!
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 began my journey at 294 lbs with the old program and carried over day 1 with Shibboleth. I half hearted stayed with the program until October 2014. I let life get in my way and quit. In October 2015, I was up 50 lbs of the 80 I had lost. I was also diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at this point in my life. I felt awful and I looked awful. I was slowly killing myself. In November 2015, I decided to start back with the program on my own. I did drop a few pounds but I knew it wasn't enough to be by myself. On January 19, 2016 I officially came back home to my Shibboleth family. To date, I have lost 102 lbs. I have went from a very tight fitting 26w to a size 12-14. The best part is; as of July 11, 2016, I no longer have diabetes! I am feeling so much better. I have energy and I look better. For the first time in my life I'm not ashamed of me. I'm learning to be proud of me and love myself. God made me because he loves me. I hope I can... Read More
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.
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!

I became a member of Shibboleth almost a year before I actually got started, and I regret that. However, things have really changed for me since I committed to the Shibboleth lifestyle. I have not only lost 50 lbs., I also lost my need for blood pressure medicine, and I can run up the stairs at home with no side effects. Before, I went up (and down) the stairs very slowly and would become dizzy, short of breath, and my heart would race and beat very hard.
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!
My son has lost 60 pounds doing Shibboleth!!!
JENNIFER AND EVAN HULL
Just wanted to post how thankful I am to have been introduced to the Shibboleth lifestyle. Over the weekend, I went through my closet and drawers and was able to give away 6 garbage bags and 1 huge box of clothes!!! I have struggled my whole life with my weight and yo-yo dieting. My weight would range from 103 to 181 lbs!!! (I'm 5'3''). I've also had a resting heart rate of 112 bpm for over 20 years.....it is now 65!!!! The only thing I'm doing differently is this new way of eating. Travis Martin has been given a gift from God to help people who struggle with their weight and I am one of those people. I feel like I, too, have been given a gift. It is so liberating to not have to think about another diet for the rest of my days. Thank you doesn't seem enough for all I've been given.
God bless you Travis Martin, Jodi Harbin, and all the sweet Shibboleth family for your knowledge and support. I am forever grateful.
So thankful for Travis Martin and all our wonderful mentors!!

I started my journey with Shibboleth lifestyle 3 years ago tomorrow. I can't believe that I have actually lost and maintained 60 pounds less of me. Do I have days that I struggle with eating properly? Yes. Does my weight fluctuate back above goal weight? Yes. But, the awesome thing about this program is that you can get off track and get right back on. It's all about doing the right thing more than the wrong thing.
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!
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!

I found victory in not having to wait for table seating vs. booth seating when we go out to eat. Victory of hopping on the log flume ride at Dollywood with my son and husband instead of being concerned about if I'd exceed the weight limit or be able to use the seat belt in the ride without an extender. Victory of attending sporting events without the worry of of the type seating the stadium offered. Bench style seating vs. individual chair seating.
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 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!!!

I actually began on 9/11/2012 at 184.2 lbs and was told by my doctor I would have to begin several medications. I did not want to do that and he suggested Thrive. He said I could "try" to control it with diet, but he did not think it would work and would re-check in 3-4 months. I was 60 years old and had convinced myself I was "too old" to change. I went back to the doctor on 12/5/2012 and everything was normal!! Cholesterol went from 287 to 170, Blood Glucose from 112 to 74, BP from 147/90 to 114/78!! My ending weight is 148.6!! I have maintained this and I still have a little to go (not sure yet where I'm going to stop, but I'll know when I get there). I have learned that I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens me! I just returned from a mission trip to Mazatlan, Mexico, where our team of 15 volunteers built a house for a family-in 3 days! I did not want to go because I felt like I would hold everyone else back, but thanks to being in good health, I did as much physical work as... Read More
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!!
I appreciate the care and time that has been put into all of this. I am grateful. God bless you all!!!
My husband has lost 57 pounds and I have lost 25 pounds and kept it off for two years. I tried all kinds of other diets and never made it to my goal and always put the weight back on. (The first picture was before I lost 25 pounds on another program. So I have really kept off 50 pounds.) We love that it is a faith based weight loss program and are always encouraged by the classes and Shibboleth community.
Not only were we successful on Shibboleth, but it is a lifestyle that we will live forever!
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!!!
"My wife and I started about 2 years ago. Both determined to get our lives back. 120 lbs together weight loss! I came off of blood pressure and acid reflux medication. Learned an awesome program that was sustainable, fun, and effective."
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!
