Like my initial goal of losing all my weight,, it took small steps. Each one of us face mountains everyday to overcome. If you ever seen those guys on television who scale the mightiest mountains, they have check points, and look at the small step in front of them. After a period of time (and its not over night) the mountain becomes smaller and smaller. The reason is because those small steps have taken them furt... Wed, 11 Jun 2014 07:49:02 EST Sacrifices http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5714744 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> I've been gone for several weeks, but Im back and ready to get started again. This morning I was reading in the book of Leviticus about the sacrifices that the Israelites had to do during the old testament. My journey with spark people started back in Christmas of this past year and many sacrifices had to be made. Some of you probably do not know me, but I weighted around 315 pounds at christmas and now currently running around 230. Was the sacrifices I m... Tue, 10 Jun 2014 07:49:57 EST Restart http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5692927 Good evening everyone, <BR> <BR> Over the past couple of weeks I have really struggled with my eatting. I'm in the middle of coaching high school golf and have found myself eating out a lot with the team. Unfortunately, I have found myself ending up like I was before spark people and eating too much. I sat down last night to redo my goals and basically started over again. I have currently lost 92 pounds, but put 6 back on in the past week. I would like if anyone who reads this to pleas... Sun, 11 May 2014 22:39:26 EST Overcoming distractions and obstacles http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5685484 Good morning everyone, <BR> This morning I was reading about Moses and Aaron and their faithfulness to God. There were several times when they went to the people of Israel and Pharaoh and were confronted with rejection and turmoil. But because of their faithfulness to God, he gave them strength to overcome the troubles of their world. As we move forward in life with Sparkpeople, we will have people who will not see eye to eye with the things we are doing. They will become a distraction, d... Fri, 2 May 2014 06:16:49 EST Blessings http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5684626 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> I was reading in the book of Genesis this morning about Joseph and Jacob. At the end of his life Jacob, he laid his hands on Joseph sons and blessed them. This morning I just want to take this opportunity to bless each person who reads this blog today. May God bless you with a special day. May He help you overcome the distractions of life and give you peace. May He give you wisdom and guidance in your life today. I pray that each of you today who is rea... Thu, 1 May 2014 07:41:20 EST Blessings http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5676880 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I would like to talk about blessings. They come in all sort of shapes and sizes. Each one of us is blessed each day with a blessing. Life it self. You may not realize that each one of you is a blessing from God. You were special enough to be create in God's image to a purpose and to honor him. Don't let the world judge you or let someone say to you that your are not a blessing, YOU ARE!!! An important one in fact. Each of you bless me ea... Mon, 21 Apr 2014 08:53:08 EST Easter Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5676214 Short a quick today. All the glory to GOD!! Please honor him today for his Son Jesus Christ and dying on the Cross for OUR sins and raising from the dead on his day over 2000 years ago to give us victory over death. Praise the Lord for he is GOOD!!!! <BR> <BR> Happy Easter everyone and may God Bless you today as you honor HIM!!!!! <BR> <BR> <BR> Jason Sun, 20 Apr 2014 08:59:21 EST Overcoming disappointment http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5675554 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I would like to talk to you about overcoming disappointment. As I have been changing my lifestyles like you, we have come across times of disappointment. There might have been times when we didn't reach a specific goal, or we messed up one day and did not follow the plan. Its ok!!. We need to realize that we are not perfect. We can learn from our mistakes and press on. The one key that we do need to realize is that when we do make a mistake... Sat, 19 Apr 2014 07:40:27 EST New Beginnings http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5674910 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning, Im starting a new journey. I've lost the majority of my weight and now Im set to start something new. I will continue to lost a few more pounds , but Im starting my maintenance stage. As we reach our goals, we need to decide how are we going to maintain. The key is consistency. My spark people journey has been a success like many of yours because of the motivation of consistency. Its like my walk with Christ. The more I'm consistent with ... Fri, 18 Apr 2014 08:46:44 EST End is in Sight http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5674116 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I would like to talk about the end in sight. I have had a quick and great journey with spark people. Since Christmas, I have lost over 80 pounds. My goal is in reach in the next month. The journey has been difficult by exciting. As many of you know, it must take consistency and determination. In my case, I need lots of strength to accomplish my goal in such a quick time. I did have a secret weapon. And would like to share it with you. ... Thu, 17 Apr 2014 08:02:24 EST Encouragement http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5667369 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I just want to take the time and opportunity to encourage everyone to keep pushing forward. I've read many of your blogs, comments, and posting and have seen some awesome success in your lives. Well done!!!!!! It feels so good we people celebrate with you and I just wanted to do that with you today. If at any time you need more encouragement or just want to talk about how things are going, by all means shot me an email or post a message and ... Tue, 8 Apr 2014 12:12:26 EST Be an Example http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5666209 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I would like to challenge you to be an example for others. As I was reading 1 and 2 Timothy in the bible this morning. Paul talks to Timothy about being an example to others to see Christ within us. Christ ask us to be an example to others as well. Part of the Christian life to to be the salt of the world. What does that mean, there should be something inside of us that sets us apart, to give taste to the world. That is Christ. As we go t... Mon, 7 Apr 2014 06:39:33 EST Who's it for!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5665486 Good morning everyone, <BR> Great news lost 4 more pounds. Lost a total of 79 pounds since christmas. Praise the Lord!! I have a question for you this morning. Who's it for??? As I was reading in 1 Thessalonians this morning, Paul speaks to the church here and basically asks the same question. Are we living our lives for others, ourselves, or for Christ. For the longest time in my own life, I lived it for myself. I didn't care what others thought, I ate what I wanted, and could careles... Sun, 6 Apr 2014 07:31:39 EST Freedom http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5664849 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I would like to talk to you about breaking free and having freedom from the past. As I was reading the Bible this morning, I was reading the books of Ephesians and Galatians and how Paul was explaining to these churches that because of Christ, they were not longer bound by the law of the Old Testament. Christ came to fulfill the law, but not to abolish the law. What does this mean. We as a human race was asked to fulfill the law with our live... Sat, 5 Apr 2014 07:59:27 EST Work to completion http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5664026 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I would like to talk about finishing what you started. As we travel through the race of life. There will be check points, rest areas, detours, bumps in the road and even dead ends. What we need to remember is no matter what we face in life, we need to realize it all apart of life. This doesn't mean that when difficulty or tragedy comes we stop. God says that in our weakness, He becomes strong within us. We will face so trouble times and mos... Fri, 4 Apr 2014 06:48:20 EST New Beginnings http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5663193 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> I've been away for a couple of days and truly have missed speaking with you. During the last couple of days, I sort of drifted away with my exercise plan and struggled a little with my eating. But that is ok, today is a new beginning. Like life, our life styles need to be new beginnings each day. Build on your success and learn from your failures. Take each day one step at a time. Always try to move forward. In my life, Christ is my strength and my sup... Thu, 3 Apr 2014 06:22:28 EST One Body http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5659122 Good morning everyone, <BR> Been gone the last couple of days, but Im back. Lost 5 more pounds and that brings it to 79 pounds lost since Christmas. Hip Hip Hurray!!!! This morning I would like to talk about the body. I the bible, it talks about all christians being one body. We are all apart of it but we have different functions in the body. Some of us are workers, some teachers, some prayers, some preachers, etc... But the most important thing is we all work together to make up the... Sat, 29 Mar 2014 07:48:04 EST Cleaning the inside http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5655908 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I was reading about sanctification. As I was examining my spiritual life and asking God to help me in doing so I thought about the journey we are going through with spark people. We new life changes, looking for better healthy life styles, eating habits, more exercise. We need to think back and focus on what has prevented us from this new life style for some many years. This morning, think about what makes you struggle, is it food, is it rela... Tue, 25 Mar 2014 06:23:28 EST Goals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5655707 Good evening everyone, <BR> <BR> This evening I would like to talk to you about goals. Each one of us have set goals to achieve here on Sparkpeople. It may be healthy life style, loss weight, better eating habits, or a new exercise program. As we set goals we need to keep in mind that nothing is impossible when we set realistic goals and put our mind to it. Like many of you, I have set my goals pretty high (to lose 120 pounds by August) I've lost 71 so far since Christmas. It has been ... Mon, 24 Mar 2014 21:09:04 EST Forgiving yourself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5654419 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I would like to spend just a few minutes on forgiveness. Each one of us has come to place in our lives that we realized that a change must take place in our health eating, exercise, and overall life style or we wouldn't be here on spark people. Some of you might be like I was over a year ago and just testing out the water to see if this is for me or not. Some are at the true beginning stages and are ready to begin and not stop, and some are in... Sun, 23 Mar 2014 08:43:42 EST Finding your way Home http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5653730 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I was reading a story about a little girl who became lost in London. An police officer notice she was lost and started to ask the typical questions. DO you know where you live, phone number, etc. But she did not know any of these things. In London, there is a reference point called the Charing Cross. It is stationed in the middle of the city to give a reference point to help people navigate and orientate their directions. The officer asked ... Sat, 22 Mar 2014 07:45:04 EST Our Faults http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5653236 Good morning everyone, this morning I was reading about how sin came into this world with Adam and Eve in the garden and the affects that it has had in our world. We are all born with a sinful nature due to the fall of man in the beginning. It is the one trait that has been past down to everyone that ever was born. (Except one--Christ) How does it affect us personally? Well first of all we need to realize that there is a flaw in all us. We are not perfect, we do make mistakes, and we w... Fri, 21 Mar 2014 12:55:28 EST Integrity http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5652439 This morning, I was reading about personal character and what it takes to have integrity. I started to ask myself, how could I relate this to sparkpeople. I will take a shot it. As we make changes in our life, there will be times that we struggle. Search for answers that are not there yet and sometimes decide to make up our own answers. A lot of times before I started with spark people, I would rationalize with myself that ah its ok to skim or that. That extra meal or cookie will not hu... Thu, 20 Mar 2014 12:58:51 EST Endurance http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5651301 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> Sorry I missed you guys. This morning I was reading about endurance in the Lord. As we continue our new walk in life with healthier eating and fitness we need to remember to endure. There will be times that it may seem to be easier to say not today, well maybe just this one time i will skip it, or maybe tomorrow I can get going. I remember telling myself that several times on the multiple times I tried earlier in my life to get a new healthier life style ... Wed, 19 Mar 2014 06:44:17 EST Humbleness http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5649645 Good morning everyone, <BR> This morning I would like to talk about Humbleness. As we strive to make better life style changes and healthier lives, we need to realize that it has taken lots of strength and action to what has accomplished. We also need to be careful that we dont fall into the trap of pridefulness as well. In the bible it talks about pridefulness comes before a fall. When we start to take things for granted and feel entitled or that things are just going to happen because o... Mon, 17 Mar 2014 06:53:03 EST Lord of All http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5648970 Good morning everyone, this morning I would like to ask a simple question. Is God Lord of all of your being. As I have been walking forward in my life with the Lord these past several months, little by little the Lord has been showing me areas of my life that I have been keeping for myself and not turned it over to him. It can be very difficult at times to surrender things that I've been keeping for myself. But it has been amazing the relief and pressures that are removed when I turn it... Sun, 16 Mar 2014 09:13:46 EST Invitation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5648273 Good morning, <BR> As I was reading my devotions this morning, it spoke about how God invites us for many things. As Im writing this, Im thinking back to the beginning of my sparkspeople journey. I have been blessed in so many ways. Lost weight, started a new life style, all aspects of my life has improved greatly. Amazing. Each day more and more people are amazed at my appearance and the weight that I have lost. What a great opportunity has arsed. These open doors have not only given ... Sat, 15 Mar 2014 09:28:26 EST Constant http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5647482 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> Sorry I missed you guys and the opportunity to hear from you and also share what was on my heart yesterday. If you guys would please, pray for me today, I've been feeling a little overwhelmed and stress out. Im trying to figure out somethings financially. I've all of a sudden been bombarded with extra expenses that were not expected and Im trying to figure out how things are going to work out. I need God's guidance, direction, wisdom, and provision to mak... Fri, 14 Mar 2014 06:49:25 EST Assurance http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5645924 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I would like to talk to you about assurance. All of you has promised ourselves that we would accomplish this, do that, finish something, fix whatever, and so on and so on. Many times we probably did finish the task or job at hand. In the same way, we have had friends, family members, and others who probably have said the same thing that they would help, be there, stand by our sides, etc. And again, I'm sure that these people have also been a... Wed, 12 Mar 2014 06:43:51 EST Trials http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5645069 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> Sorry I missed yesterday. I think day light savings time messed me up all day and never got caught up. This morning i want to talk about trials. As we journey with our new life styles there will come times when we are faced with difficult decision or difficult circumstances occur. A lot times we don't understand why bad things occur and in sone instances why they occur to us. I was reading about Job, he was an individual who was written about in the bibl... Tue, 11 Mar 2014 06:38:19 EST You are Special http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5643417 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I want to share with you that you are special and uniquely made. In the Bible, God talks about how he formed each one of us uniquely in our mother's wombs. He has bless each one of us with skills and talents that he designed for our purposes. God know each and everyone of us so much that he even knows the number of hairs on your head. (and the lack on my part. LOL) As we go through this journey of life together, just remember that God loves... Sun, 9 Mar 2014 08:54:41 EST Where is your Power http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5642692 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I was reading my devotion of when Christ was talking to his disciples right before he was betrayed in the book of John. He talks about what will happen in the coming days, his crucifixion, raising from the dead, and going to Heaven to prepare us a place with him and finally his return. What He also discusses his the power he will be sending to us here on Earth. The Holy Spirit. Have you ever thought where to these ideas come from in your mind... Sat, 8 Mar 2014 08:14:19 EST The Past, The Present, The Future http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5641869 Good morning everyone, <BR> This morning I would like to talk about the three areas of our life. The Past, the present, and the future. The Past. We are all on a journey in life and have experienced many ups and downs. We have great memories and bad ones as well. We have made choices that have been successful and some not so successful. What we have done in the past has brought us to where we are today. In some parts of our lives things are going smoothly and others we are struggliing... Fri, 7 Mar 2014 06:49:54 EST Struggling http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5641047 Good morning everyone, <BR> This morning I would like to talk to you about struggling. Everyday we wake up to new struggles. It can be our health, exercise, stress, work, family, and even finances. We all deal with them differently, but we all face them. I was reading about John the Baptist in the bible this morning. If you do not know him, he was a guy who basically lived in the wilderness during Jesus' time and would tell everyone who he met to get prepared because our Lord is coming. ... Thu, 6 Mar 2014 06:52:07 EST Heaven http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5640097 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I was reading about Heaven and what God has spoken about it and that Christ mentioned that He has gone to prepared a place for us. What I would like to do this morning is have you go back and think about a time you were on vacation or out of town for a long time, or even out of the country. How did you feel after a period of time away from home? Did you feel anxious to get home after a period of time? Did you have that burning desire to get h... Wed, 5 Mar 2014 06:51:24 EST God's Answers to Our Prayers http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5639192 Good morning everyone, <BR> It has been an amazing journey this year so far. As I think back to where I've come from since last Christmas it has been a miracle. I give all the credit to God for what has happen. He has truly answered my prayers. I have no idea who reads these blogs each day but I know that God is answering prayers through them. How do I know this? Because God impressed upon me to do this each day. To share my faith, to use the words he has given me and to pray each d... Tue, 4 Mar 2014 06:09:48 EST Feeling Overwhelmed http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5638315 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I would like to talk about feeling overwhelmed. As we journey into our new life styles, we occasionally feel that we become overwhelmed. Our society today is we can do one more thing. But we tend not to priorities things and we get overwhelmed. At first with my journey with sparkpeople, I felt overwhelmed with tracking this and tracking that. I had no time; however, after some time to sit down and re-examining my life and putting things into... Mon, 3 Mar 2014 08:21:13 EST Life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5637431 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> Sitting in an ICE STORM in Missouri this morning. This morning my devotion time dealt with life and death. As we look at life, there is that saying out there that we are not guarantee anything except two things, taxes and death. (Laughing at taxes) But it is so true about death. I know many people do not like to talk about death but if you think about its apart of everyone's life. It can be very scary to people who have no idea what comes next, or even ... Sun, 2 Mar 2014 07:29:53 EST To Do My Best http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5636738 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> As I was going through my devotion this morning, it discussed being righteous. As I examine my life, one of my prayers each day is for God to show me what Im falling short on and to help me strive to do better each day. Also I ask Him is there anything in my life that hinders my walk with him, (TV, entertainment, people, situations, habits, etc.) As I continue on my journey in life and making changes in my physical body, I need to keep things in prosppect... Sat, 1 Mar 2014 09:11:59 EST Ultimate Prize http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5635791 Good morning, <BR> <BR> This morning I was reminded to keep my eye on the final prize. As we journey through life, we set up goals to accomplish. Some want a good job, others nice home, loving family, still others healthy life style and good health. All of us on spark people would probably agree to the last few I listed. As I examine my own life, many of these have come true and still are in process. But the most important prize that I'm still striving for the most is spending eternity... Fri, 28 Feb 2014 06:47:14 EST Who is your Security http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5634986 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I would like to ask you, WHo is your security? As we continue down this road of life, we all experience different situations and experiences. In some instances we come upon road blocks and need to take detours, or in some cases dead ends. Some places in our lives we are traveling straight ahead and we get blind sided by life as well. When we get blindsided or maybe a stumble and we fall who is there to help you out. To get you up and moving ... Thu, 27 Feb 2014 06:58:54 EST Carrying our Burden http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5634041 Good morning, <BR> This morning I read about giving our burden's over to Christ. As we go through life we have add on weight, stress, and undue burdens. What does this do to us? I will assume most of us who are on Spark People understand what the weight does. It causes us to miss out on things, unhealthy life styles, medical conditions, and no energy. Stress causes addition weight gain, mental and physical health problems, and undue worries. Finally the burdens we carry weight us down i... Wed, 26 Feb 2014 06:54:52 EST A Good Shepard http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5633483 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I read about how Christ is our good Shepard. What is a Shepard? It is one who takes care of the flock. If one is lost, he will seek out the one. If they are in danger, he will protect every last one of them. He guides them, provides for them, and feeds them. In my devotion it talked about sheep and how they are not the brightest creatures on earth. They need to be careful next to flowing creeks, if their wool gets wet it can weight them do... Tue, 25 Feb 2014 13:24:14 EST Unchanging God http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5632206 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This morning I would like to talk about changes. As we have been journeying on our new life styles. We have noticed many changes, weight, exercise, healthy choices, sizes, etc.... All of these things can be exciting and also can be disappointing when things don't change towards our goals. This morning I was reading about God and the fact that He never changes. Praise God He doesn't. He is still the same as yesterday, the same today, and forever. His lo... Mon, 24 Feb 2014 06:57:42 EST Where is our Hope http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5631389 Good morning everyone, <BR> <BR> This moring I was reading a devotion on where is our Hope. As we journey through our new life changes with Health, exercise, and food choices, we occassionally will come to road blocks and speed bumps in the road. How do we react to these things? As for myself, Ive in the past stopped, given up, and lost all hope of ever meeting my goals. Why did this happen so many times. The reason I found out was I was relying on my own strength to get me through the ... Sun, 23 Feb 2014 08:35:31 EST Jesus Cares for Us http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5630705 Good morning everyone, I missed everyone yesterday, was out of town and did not have an opportunity to get on and blog. Great to be back. This morning I was reading schriptures about how Christ came to heal the sick and weak. It is so important to know that there is someone out there who cares for us. Many probably have a great support group at home, all of us have a great support group here at Spark People, but there are times when we feel we are all alone out there. If you every find ... Sat, 22 Feb 2014 09:33:21 EST Jesus Christ is Lord http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5629026 Good morning everyone, this morning my devotion was on Jesus Christ is Lord. Its been amazing what God has done in my life over the last 60 days. I have decided that to make Jesus not only my savior but LORD of all, including my weight, habits, exercise, and life style.
