SparkPeople The Old Pentecostal Path Team Messageboard 05/19/2016 184.4 today Thu, 19 May 2016 17:24:09 EST What do dieting and Church have in common? You know what I have noticed? In dieting if you have one little "cheat" day it is so easy to have another or say "I've blown it, I may as well start again next week" and next week never comes or if it does it comes with 5 extra pounds. Same with church if you lay off one service, it is easy to miss another and another. We need to encourage ourselves. There are many discourages in our walk with God who constantly whisper that we are not good enough or remember our past sins to us. Same wa...

I was raised Pentecostal, and proud to stay always will be. I grew up in a Pentecostal Church of God and we moved to Bellevue, NE when I was 15 and joined an Assembly of God church. I still go there. 38 years and counting. My faith is my foundation! I just need to get better at allowing God to help me with my food issues. Sometimes it's so hard to let go of areas ...

Thu, 13 Sep 2012 10:57:20 EST What are your goals and motivation? When I started trying to lose weight, I didnt have "set" goals, now I want to weigh a healthy weight for me and I want to take the class to become a zumba instructor. My motivation are my girls, they have a ton more energy than I do, id like to keep up! Wed, 12 Sep 2012 19:26:52 EST Stuck in a weight rut Ok, for the past 2 weeks ive been stuck at the same weight. It varies a little, but is right at 180. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get myself going again? Wed, 29 Aug 2012 03:11:10 EST How do you lose? I'm curious to see how everyone chooses to lose their weight or maintain their weight. Are you exercising and dieting, or do you do one or the other? Do you use the calorie tracker on sparkpeople? Are you aware theres an app for smart phones? There are many ways to lose weight, everyone does it differently. I want to know how you do it and how do youstay accountable? For instance, I use the spark app on my phone to track, I use the wii to do zumba and yoga, I also go walking sometimes. I try ... Sun, 19 Aug 2012 14:46:52 EST what holds you back? I have something i should admit.....I'm absolutely addicted to sweets! I have this bad habit that if something sweet is in the house, I feel like in order for me to lose weight I should eat it so it isn't tempting me. I know, I know, not the right way to do this..... I've started looking for ways to keep myself from eating so many sweets, so far, my favorite is Wintermint gum. What holds you back from your weight goals and what helps you? Fri, 17 Aug 2012 15:11:29 EST Talk about your church I've been to a few Pentecostal churches and enjoyed different things about them and was wondering what you enjoy about your church? <BR> <BR> For instance: Does your church have greeters at the doors? <BR> <BR> Does your church pass out bulletins? <BR> <BR> What activities does your church have that you enjoy? Wed, 28 Mar 2012 14:56:08 EST Fasting Does anyone fast on a regular basis? <BR> How do you fast? <BR> Any suggestions? <BR> <BR> thanks Fri, 2 Mar 2012 15:50:47 EST Asking For Help Are we seeking help from the Lord in our healthy quest? Do we have support groups in our church? Do you believe we should have?
