I AM A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN AND BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF PRAYER! JESUS IS MY LORD AND SAVIOR..GOD IS IN CONTROL ALWAYS.. I DO MY BEST TO ENCOURAGE AND MOTIVATE OTHERS AS WELL AS NEED OTHERS TO MOTIVATE ME AT TIMES-AS I SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION..BUT MY HEALTH HAS GREATLY IMPROVED SINCE I LOST ALL THAT WEIGHT.. BUT I AM STUCK WITH THE DIABETIC COMPLICATIONS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE AND I DEAL WITH THEM ONE DAY AT A TIME..GOD GIVES ME THE STRENGTH I NEED TO KEEP ON MOVING.. NEVER GIVE UP MY FRIENDS..WE FALL DOWN AND WE GET RIGHT BACK UP..
IF I CAN DO IT--YOU COULD DO IT TOO! KEEP THE FAITH.. BE TRUE TO YOURSELF...
I HAVE TO STICK TO MY SMALL TERM GOALS AND BE REALISTIC --SO I DO NOT GET DEPRESSED.. I WANT TO STAY MOTIVATED AND POSITIVE! AND I DO NOT GET OBSESSED WITH THAT SCALE.. OBSESSION LEADS TO FAILURE I BELIEVE.. TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND HE WILL DIRECT YOUR PATHS....

Susie: You have done and awesome job of loosing weight. Being diabetic myself I know how hard it is to keep your A1C normal and all the other complications that diabetics encounter every day. I was 298 and am now 240. I battled cancer but now am cancer free! The power of prayer!
Being a Catholic Christian- I believe in the power of prayer. However, I must remember to place my day in the Lord's heart and ask his Holy Spirit to guide my eating this a new day.
When I forget to pray, I over eat when my emotions get the best of me. It doesn't have to be a long prayer and some days it's "Jesus Help Me now to make right food choices through this diet day."
I am at a impasse for loosing also. Limiting portion sizes is what I am doing now and eating foods that are acceptable for diabetics. Reading labels. Carrot sticks are crunchie and are sweet tasting for a snack. 3 is a nice size snack, the petite ones.
I enjoyed the recent movie on TV-Heaven is for Real..I have no doubt that Heaven is for real and look forward to reunions with loved ones. It was on Encore/Dish but I'm sure you can rent it.
Blessings and Angel Hugs,
Your Diabetic Friend-MBLee1
P. S. The only time I know of that loosing feels great, is when you see the scale do a down hill slide!
