welcome. glad to have you on this team. I was born again at the age of 9, and have been a Christian for 53 years. I h aven't always been the Christian I should have been, but God has been gracious. I, too, attend a very small rural church, have 3 children, 2 stepchildren and a total of 9 grands and 1 great-grandchild. sounds like we have a lot in common, MFloyd6. we will lift each other up in prayer so that God's will can be completed in our lives. God bless you. emoticon

Hello! I just stumbled onto this group & looking forward to being a part of it. I've been on SP for 3 0r 4 years now & part of an older group which I love. I'm retired, battling some age related difficulties & health issues but still trying to manage the weight issues. I've been a Christian for over 50 years, a pastor's wife now for 12 years,,,very small rural church. Active in missions. Have grandchildren & one great grand. Still need the encouragement & prayers from other as life gets us down sometimes.

Good morning, everyone. I am Dottydo and I am so glad that this group is on Spark People. I have been on spartkpeople for quite a while, but did not know this group was listed. I am attempting to get back on track with my weight loss. Since I retired from my job, I have gained weight, and part of that is due to a bad sciatic nerve and plantar fasciatis. Since I have retired from standing so much, the plantar fasciatis is much better, thank God, and the chiropractor is helping with the sciatic nerve. I have resumed walking-slowly, but surely, and I ask for prayers and encouragement to keep this journey going. the first thing I do every morning is spend time in God's word while I'm having my coffee. I attend church faithfully and I just need prayers and encouragement to continue to get back on track with my weight loss. emoticon

right now my weight is at 166 and my goal is to get to at least 140. I need all the encouragement I can get. emoticon

Hello, everyone. I am so awed to have found a Christian group on Spark People. I joined a few months ago but haven't done anything with the site -- I got as far as breakfast and -- that was it. I have been overweight on and off most of my life with very little control over my sin. I need prayer, encouragement and most-times a good old swift kick in the rear. I have several disabilities that hinder my ability to exercise on a daily basis which is extremely frustrating and disappointing -- I do what I am capable of -- however, I don't feel that it is good enough. I do okay for a few days and then something will happen and I fall off the wagon. I confess my sin, pick myself up and dust myself off and start all over again. I am married to one fabulous man. He is so encouraging -- it's like having my very own pep squad living in my home. And he loves me just as i am, no matter what. God truly blessed me the day we married -- we are one great team. I am looking forward to being part of this group of believers -- I'm so glad you are here!

I'm not new to Spark People, but just found out about this team on an e-mail. I haven't been very successful for several months, so maybe this accountability team will help me. I don't really have support at home. I don't have but about 20 pounds to lose, but sometimes it seems like it just as well be 50. I am a retired school teacher, and I now live on a farm. I have just recently gotten a doberman puppy which helps keep me more active. She sure loves attention. I know I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me, but I also know that I must put forth the effort and trust in Him to help me. I look forward to meeting others on this team.

Hi! I've been with SP for 2 years now and just now found this team!! I am 67 years old, 4 grown boys, 8 grand children and married to my best friend here on earth for 15 years (my youngest grandson was born on our wedding day - how neat is that, huh?).

My husband and I have been struggling with illnesses and diseases for the last several years, the last one being my husband who contracted a highly contagious and often fatal disease while undergoing knee surgery revision through the antibiotic IV in July. He's had it 3 times since his surgery so far. I strongly feel that God has something very special planned for him as I've almost lost him 5 times during those years of marriage.

We have two toy poodles (Nancy Stop It and Lucy No! - I'm sure you can figure out how they got their middle names) who have also been very sick these last 3 weeks as well. I'm praying to meet other support friends through this team.

I'm not new to Spark but new to this team. I'm 59 years old with 5 grown kids and 12 grandkids. Through a series of circumstances I moved late last year from a small town in southern New Mexico to Arlington, Texas. I was very active, even if not at my goal weight. Then on October 31 last year I had a stroke and severe brain bleed out of the blue. Transferred that day from the small town to Phoenix and then on November 21 transferred to Dallas for inpatient therapy. Then discharged Dec 3rd and stayed with oldest son got a little while in another city near here. Now I live in my own apartment and do fairly well. I believe God has a reason why I'm here! Only been in this area a few months. Glad to find this team.

I'm new to the team and new to Spark! I'm still learning how to navigate the web site, but I'm liking it so far! I've struggled with my weight most of my life and have 50-60 pounds to lose. Our first grandchild will be born in February, 2015, and I'm wanting to be healthy to be able to enjoy every minute of it!

I've always felt that my weight gain is only a symptom of something missing. My daily goal is to follow Christ and His will for my life and to take care of the life He gave me. If I am diligent, I believe the weight loss will follow!

I am soooooo glad I found this team. I am looking for an accountablity partner for living by God's grace and for fitness and exercise.

I am back after being gone for a few months. I had the bright idea that I could do it on my own. NOT! I am now right back to my weight that I was at when I first started. I have lost 60 pounds in the past. I know I will succeed because I have Jesus and what looks like a great team of like minded folks!

PEACE!

Hello! :) My name is Allison. I am so excited to find other Christians on Sparkpeople! I have been a Christian for just over a year. I grew up Catholic, and had never actually heard (or maybe never understood) what Jesus did for me!

I am happily married to a wonderful Godly man (we've known each other since grade school!) We have two beautiful children, an almost-8yo daughter and a newly-2yo son. When my daughter was 3, I started my first Spark journey and lost 40lbs. I'm hoping for similar results this time!

I am looking forward to having fellowship with other Christians, and having some positive accountability. :)

I joined because I need accountability Spirtually and Physically!

GOD BLESS!

My name is Ethel and this is my third time back to Spark's. I am a Christian spiritual writer and have my third novel ready to be self-published soon. I share a house with my two adult daughters. I have a Women’s Bible study in my home every other week. I will be having surgery in a few months and my doctor wants me to lose weight. I need group support and prayers to help me be accountable.

Good morning
Here I am again at 200 and slipping from my daily devotionals. Help me to be accountable.
My plan:
1. Use Nutribullet (it's great) to get veggies in the AM and PM snack
2. Bring 2 bottles water to work and actually finish both
3. Our new Pilates machine comes in Friday... the whole family will be taking turns...it has a rebounder for cardio, too
4.Check in here after my devotional...forget about Facebook

Have a Son-filled Day

Hi, Gayle and all,

My name is Susan, I'm in my early 50's and a struggling-to-recover binge eater.
I have lost and gained weight time and time again and am here with the prayer that God can remove this addiction and I can lose the weight and keep it off.
Looking forward to getting to know all of you.

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Hi! I'm Rebecca. I'm 43 and I have tried many times to get in shape, but have always gave up because of discouragement. I love the accountability that SP provides. My goal is to get in the best physical shape that I can so I can serve God like He wants me to. Blessings to you all and I look forward to getting to know each of you!
