You Can Do It, Too!

I'm a 51 year old Christian woman who has lost weight with SparkPeople!! I lost a total of 56 lbs between May 2012 and May 2013! I gained a little on maintenance though, well actually 21 lbs! and am now maintaining my weight at 158 lbs! I'm not against losing more if I just happen to, though! Successfully losing weight, I put my confidence in God and worked to get sober. I just celebrated my one year anniversary in April 2014!

Successfully losing weight, I put my confidence in God and worked to get sober. I just celebrated my one year anniversary in April 2014!

Redid my program and ticker as of 7/14/14, moving off Maintenance and back to an attempt to lose again! Thinking "I can do this!"

I CAN DO THIS and lose another 33 lbs and get to my original goal of 125 ! But SP estimates that may take until December 2015! That's an awefully long time from now.

Having been encouraged by SparkCoach this morning to help avoid frustration and loss of motivation in having such a grand goal that would take so long, I'm going to break my ultimate goal into smaller and more bite-size pieces. Since I'm having such a difficult time losing even 1 pound since my return to SP almost 4 weeks ago, June 25, 2014, I'm going to break my big goal into 5 lb pieces at a time, even changing my ticker! I'll also do as I see some ladies do and add my small goals under my Profile, adding "by dates".

Hi Cathleen,
Thanks for the add back!
Praise the Lord for healing both of us!!!

I'm having a great time on SP this summer getting to know new people and all.
Right now we are going through a Hot Dry Spell here in the Northwest, so it is hard to be bouncy and full of energy.
But the Lord has done sooo much for me in that area too. My energy has been boundless lately!

Have a great weekend!
Glad the gremlins didn't get your message! He he!

God bless,
Sue emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Cathleen!
Thanks so much for sending a message to my spark page!
I am going to add you as a Spark Friend as soon as I am done with this return message.
I love your response. God is so good! He is still healing today!

I just wanted to let you know that I too have had healing! I was diagnosed with nephritis in about 2003 I think or something like that. ( Nephritis is as you probably know, is when the kidneys put out too much protein)
Cannot remember off the top of my head...But anyways, I did decide for my own health reasons and the suggestions of my doctors to go on a low salt diet. The results at the time helped me to lose some of the weight I needed to lose. I was not on Spark People at the time, as I did not know of this website.

But to make a long story short, I too, after about 5 years was told that my nephritis was in remission! I have been told it can come back, but I am determined to get healthier so it doesn't!
My protein and kidney levels have been at the normal range now for about 6-7 years and I am doing everything I know to keep them there. I also want to get off all the meds my doctors have put me on.
My take on it is now that I think on it, God did heal me and He is now helping me to lose that excess weight so I can be even healthier. He needs me to be healthy so I can do the work He has for me to do!

For an update...I sent a message to my kidney specialist about my weight loss and she wrote back and told me I made her day with the news! Sometimes I think the Lord brought her into my life so that I can share the Good News with her. She needs to know that it is God who Heals and not medical science or anything we do on our own.
Next stop for me will be to see my PCP and surprise him with my weight loss so far!

Thanks for sharing your story!

Sue

PS. For a moment or so there I thought the computer gremlins had eaten my message too, but thanks goodness that wasn't the case! LOL!
