Hi Sherrie :) Yes, that does feel good! I think I pushed myself a bit too hard last week, though, because it's been a challenge even walking around the park 3 times. I got up to 4 times tonight and am very happy with that :)

Hi and welcome, Valerie!

Hi, my name is Valerie and I live in Florida on the Gulf with my sweetheart. We are not members of a formal church, but we listen to Joel Osteen every Sunday (for 8 years) and we read the Bible and Our Daily Bread every night before bed. We believe God brought us together and has blessed us in incredible ways.

My main problem is alcohol. I didn't drink for 107 days over the holidays (Thanksgiving to Valentines Day) and lost 14 pounds in that time. Then I started drinking frequently and put that weight back on ! Still, I am 35 pounds down from when I first joined SP in Sept '12. I am on an alcohol-free streak again and doing very well. I've lost 5 pounds in 2 weeks !

Hope to get to know you all.
God Bless,
Valerie

Hi Megan and you are my neighbor really as I am in Mississippi. So welcome and also welcome to you Ashley. The most important thing I think is starting. Sometimes it seems to be the hardest though. I like to set myself goals both short term and long term because it feels so good when you achieve them! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello everyone! I'm Ashley. I decided to join this group because what better support than from those who love The Lord. I'm in a bit of a funk right now. Just got on the scale and the number read the highest I've ever been. I just stared at the number and felt absolutely nothing. Numb. I wasn't surprised because I knew my recent non-active lifestyle and eating habits are the reasons for this numb feeling. So where do I go from here? Any encouragement and words of advise are welcomed. I'm not giving up. Just wondering how to approach this head on, be consistent, and stay motivated this time around. I know I can do this. Be blessed everyone and have a great evening.

Hi everyone! My name is Lisa and I have been on SP just over a month now. I was invited to SP by a middle school chum of mine who I have watched (virtually) go from 460 lbs down to 285! She is quite the inspiration to me and when I finally just reached this place where I just knew it was time to get my weight and health in a better place, I reached out to her, and she invited me to a couple of smaller groups on SP that she leads. I am 54, married to my college sweetheart for 31 years, and have a 23 year old daughter. I have lived in CT my entire life, but over the past eight years the rest of my family (brother, then mom, and just recently my sister) have all moved down to SC and warmer weather. So I am starting this weight loss journey to health as I am trying to build new relationships both here at home and on SP.

I am a real estate broker by trade, and have owned my own company for 11 years. Of course the economy has made this business more than extremely difficult, and even with 28 years in the real estate business, I have just had the worst three years of my career, all consecutively posting losses. With two of my agents retiring, one moving back to Puerto Rico, and one moving into commercial real estate, I am now a solo practicitioner trying to transition back into full time sales and trying to make ends meet and pay off my business debt. This challenge comes right on top of my husband's income dropping from 43K to 17K four years ago, and six hospitalizations for him in seven years, and after spending the last four years trying to replace that lost income, he is cross-training for a new career. We have just managed this year save our home from the foreclosure process, but are still trying to keep our heads above water and pay off a mountain of bills.

All of this is to share that no matter what your situation, God is still God on His throne and He is able to sustain us through whatever trials He deems are for our benefit. Though the enemy comes to steal and kill and destroy, he is only allowed to do what God has pre-ordained is for the very best of His children. I am blessed to be a born-again spirit-filled child of the Living God and privileged to be his ambassador. I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I've committed unto Him! I trust that through Him alone, when this trial is complete I will come forth as gold! (Pray for me that I do not fall short!)

I am active in my local fellowship; because faith without works is dead! My ministry is what I call a "gap-walker". I fill in the gaps wherever I am needed. These days that means I sing on the worship team 3 Sundays a month and run the soundboard and record service on the 4th. I help the administrative team with counting offerings, banking, and act as recording secretary. In addition to filling in the gaps, I am active on our church's spiritual warfare and intercessors team, and I do debt & credit counseling with individuals as needed, hospital visitation with my husband who is an Elder (thankfully not needed too often), and periodically lead a women's bible study.

I thought I would join this group because it lifts up the Lord--and you can never have enough of that! It is a bigger group than the other SP groups I am in, and I hope not too big to actually get to know some folks as we go along. Looking forward to getting to know you, pray for you, and hopefully to be a blessing to you as well!

~~Lisa

I can do all things through Christ Jesus, who strengthens me! (Phil 4:13)

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith (Mark 11:23)

Hi everyone! Thanks for inviting me to join the team. My name is Michelle and I look forward to getting to know everyone! emoticon

~~ Michelle ~~

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do."

Time will pass no matter what .... will I be closer to or farther from my goals

It’s not that some people have willpower and some don’t. It’s that some people are ready to change and others are not. Finally, I am ready to change!

Good afternoon, all :) I am new to SP and really new to this team! Thanks for the invite, PurplePeony. BTW, I love peonies, they are such beautiful flowers.

My name is Kimberly, and I am one month shy of turning 49. I live in Sacramento CA with my husband and 8 cats. Yep, 8. A lot! They are usually a lot of fun, and range in age from 6 months to over 11 years.

We don't have children, but I am blessed to be an aunt to 2 wonderful nieces and 2 awesome nephews who live near Portland, Oregon. We only get to see them once or twice a year, but I am hoping that when my husband and I retire (or earlier, God willing!) we are able to move up to Portland so we can take a more active role in their lives and the lives of their future children. Oh, yeah...I don't want to forget my brother and his wife and my sister and her husband, who are the parents of these awesome kids!

We attend a small church in the Sacramento area and love it! Our pastor is an amazing, hardworking, genuine man of God, and is a great example. I will brag a bit and tell you that this is the best church that I've ever attended. It's not perfect, but it's close :P I have the honor of leading the women's ministry and serving the women of our church. My favorite thing about leading the women's ministry is planning our annual retreat and watching the women enjoy the relaxation and hear from God.

I am here on SP to lose weight and gain control of the type 2 diabetes I was recently diagnosed as having. The encouragement and support here is amazing and I am hooked!

I am looking forward to getting to know y'all :)

Hi just posted on your wall. I found out about this team when JLAMING263 commented on my blog and I went to his page to thank him and saw this team. Couldn't resist the name and the purpose of this team. You are invited to go to my page, go in and visit me awhile and see who I am and what I have done with my life.

Hi, I'm Barbara and am s 61 year old grandma of five and wife of Don for 41 amazing years. In 2001 I gave up work because of increasing mental struggles with multiple sclerosis. After two years of encouraging by my neurologist I finally gave up work and have been able to have so much more life since. I have enjoyed so many miracles in my life and I know there have been many I have note noticed along the way. in '99 the Lord spoke very clearly to me that I had breast cancer, that it was growing quickly, and that I could choose life. All came true. In '95 I became unable to walk more than a very short distance (less than half a block) without a cane or wheel chair. After 9 years, I suddenly was able to walk again -- 2.5 miles the first day and 3 miles the next without even using the cane. Only God could do this. Certainly the muscle was gone, the endurance, etc. Yet, without fanfare, without warning, He just spoke to my spirit to get up and walk. I did. Praise God I've been walking 10 years now. I participated in a charity 5k, but struggled with that. I was nearly the last to finish. My knees and back made me give up tennis, running and horseback riding when I was about 25. My coordination has been an issue all my life. I could never ride a bike or do so many things that my friends took for granted. I suspect it was ms even back then. But, the Lord had always been my Rock and the lover of my soul. I was adopted. My parents never told me they loved me. The only told me what a wonderful thing it was that they were willing to adopt when they couldn't have children of 'their own'. My heart hurt for love. When is was quite young my very dear, Christian, aunt told me Jesus loved me. That opened a whole new world to me. It was the first time I truly felt lovable, worthwhile. My mom loved to bake and took it very personally if I didn't want all she put in front of me. I was a chubby child who was called all sorts of mean names at school and in the neighborhood. Eventually, I used less than health means to lose weight and I've yo-yoed forever. I was probably never quite to the obese levels, but definitely up in the unhealthy realm. I still go up and down, just not so far. I would love to lose another 10 pounds, maybe more when I get to that level. But, I'm in a healthy weight place now so the motivation is not what it has been in the past. These pounds are for vanity. I do pray all my Spark friends are having a great year! I wonder where we will be by December? We can do this! Praise God.

Hi ; )

My name is Debbie. I am a 60 year old disabled pharmacist (on disability since 1997 - sick for 8 or 9 years before that). Becoming disabled cost me my husband, my son living with me, my job, my home - more than I can explain. God told me to move to the center of the country because I would be able to live on the money I have coming in. I lived in the boonies of MO for 13 years - major healing time for me mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Physically, I was bed-bound for 7 years. I have put my wheelchair aside and I can be up and active for about 4 times a day. After my aunt's death, her home in a small town in the NW corner of TN was put on the market. It had been updated to an open floor plan and remodeled except for the kitchen. My mom bought the house and I am buying it from her. It feels funny to be in town again after years where I could only see one house from mine and my dogs (2 dachshunds) were excited if we saw ten trucks go down the road in a day. I now live on a main street in the town I visited to see my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins while growing up. It is slowly dying, but the area I'm in is doing okay. I am thrilled to have a paid up place to live for the rest of my life. I only wish I was physically closer to my son. I have 100+ pounds to lose. I hope it will get me off some meds. I suffer chronic pain, sleep apnea, TIA's that mess with my memory, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, migraines, diabetes and much more. The important thing is, God is healing me and I am getting better, one baby step after another.

I was raised in the Baptist church, but I don't care what denomination a church is, but the spirit inside of it. I was saved at a young age, but walked away from God when I went away to college. I found Him again when I was getting very sick and a friend took me to a very special, God-centered church. My relationship with God has grown by leaps and bounds. I have my challenges, but I also have a very blessed life.

I look forward to meeting you all !

; )

Debbie

PURPLEPEONY invited me to join, I looked at the group and I see a lot of people that are already on other teams with me. Instead of posting the same stuff in different places just check my sparkpage to find out more abut me. I've been writing a daily blog on one chapter of the bible each day for the past year and a half, I'd love for more people to join in.

I'm not selling anything, just sharing what works for me.

Hello! I'm a 29 year old who is dreading turning the big 30 next year. :) I've been married to my extremely handsome husband for 10 years now and we have been blessed with 2 beautiful children, a boy and a girl. I was raised in a small, farming community in Ohio though I've always had a big city heart. What's ironic however is that now, I'm living in a small, farming community in Kentucky and couldn't be happier. ;) Enough about me, I can't wait to meet you all!

Hi there fellow team members! My name is Emma (Presbess) and I'm new to the team. I've been an SP member since Jan 2011 and reached maintenence a couple of years ago and am happy to say I've been a successful maintainer (all glory to God). I'm a Christian, married with one young adult son and I work in the finance industry. I absolutely love SP and thank God for it.

I look forward to getting to know my new team members and supporting the team.

Maintaining... it's what I do.

The Lord Jehovah is my strength and song"! Isaiah 12:2 emoticon

I absolutely love music. I am a singer and musician, the pianist, in a gospel blue grass band, The Kelso Heartbeats for Jesus. We minister in music and testimony to eight soon to be nine nursing/retirement homes in our local area. We also conduct one church service a month. We are currently looking for a building to start our own church.

I have always been involved with music. I play the piano, organ, string bass, and guitar and sing as well. I have been involved in Christian musicianship since the age of ten. The joy of music stirs my soul. I work out to Christian music....I have downloaded our blue grass songs to iTunes and love worshiping and singing as I get more fit.

I have journeyed with our Lord and Savior through a 100 weight loss trek, plus I will be celebrating 1,000 days of sobriety within a few days. The Serenity Prayer is a guidepost for me as well. One of my favorite blue grass gospel songs is, " I'm Using My Bible for a Road Map." I read the Word daily in English and in Spanish. I am bilingual and wish I could use Spanish more where I live. We travel to Akumal, Mexico each year. We love it there.

Please visit my SparkPage! I would love to hear from team members!

Almost spit my coffee all over the computer screen, when I read Purplepeony's 2014 prayer for a big fat bank account. Now, that's a great sense of humor. Thanks, :)

New to this group and to Spark. How nice to be invited to a group!

Love the energy here too.

Me? Well, in short, I'm 57, have a very close family that I doat on, born and raised a Christian. My grandmother, a Baptist, had the greatest influence on my life.

I enjoy sewing, crafting, crocheting, cooking, gardening, and reading. I don't take any medications and always look for and use natural alternatives for health issues.
I make my own shampoo, conditioner, hair gel, face and body lotion, furniture polish, etc.


I love the concept of this group and am looking forward to meeting and communicating with everyone.

Hello I am new to the team,
I am recently married, I have a wonder career that takes in a lot of my time.
In the past year I have gained a total of 26.4 pound, and I need to lose them back.

I am a follower of Christ (at least I try to be with the help of the Holy Spirit), and I don't want to leave this world accomplishing my destiny and let everybody to repent, because the end is near, let's take God seriously and stop playing religion.



Good things comes to those who work hard for it.

I am one of six children, raised in the Midwest in a Christian home. My faith has always been an essential part of me. Married my college sweetheart who retired last June but passed away in July 5 days after his diagnosis of cancer. Our adopted son is on home nocturnal hemodialysis-- I am his care partner. We just moved 1,000 miles to my hometown to be nearer family.

Hello everyone!

Thank you to PURPLEPEONY for inviting me to the team. I already know a few members.

My name is Véronique and I am a member of the Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon).
I am originally from France, but now live in Northern Virginia. I have 3 sons and three (and a half, due in August) grandchildren. My husband died a year and a half ago and I am now living alone with my youngest son, who is handicapped (severe autism and intellectually disabled).
I have always been interested in religion and I have an associate degree in theology.
I look forward to meeting new friends on this team.

If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, who am I for? And if not now, when? ETHICS OF THE FATHERS

But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
DEUTERONOMY 4:29

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. JEREMIAH 29:13

I am not new to SP, but new to this team. I am a school principal for children of military members in Germany. I recently lost my husband of 41 years on May 15. I am adjusting to singleness, and not crazy about losing my designation of "wife."

I am crazy about biking, baking and JESUS!


And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father. Colossians 3:17

Blessings,
Sandy

New to team, not new to SP. I'm trying to lose 114 pounds and get as in shape -if not better shape- than I was before I had kids! I just recently got my motivation back and discovered my goal for when I lose all the weight: Hike the Appalachian Trail and the Grand Canyon! I'm off to a bumpy start and gained back the two pounds I had lost... but I learned a valuable lesson from it - I can't eat fast food! This looks like a great team and I'm excited to be a part of it!

Hello everyone -- I'm Karen. I'm 57 and a yo-yo dieter. I have lost and gained the same 20-ish lbs at least 4 or 5 times in the past 10 years (I have kind of lost count). I was an active member of Sparkpeople 3 years (and at least 3 gain/lose cycles) ago. You can read my sad tale of woe in my blog and on my Spark page. I have no doubt I will lose it again -- I am really good at losing weight (and also regaining it). I am here to hopefully learn from others how to actually maintain it this time.
