Hi,

I am Shellie from Southern CA. I just joined your group this morning. Hoping to find ways to find support and to support others through our journeys.

God Bless.

If you always do what you always did...you'll always get what you always got!

Anything becomes possible....just remove the "IM"

I am an intelligent person. I will control my emotions and not let them control me. Every time I am tempted to use food to satisfy my frustrated desires, soothe my injured ego or dull my senses, I WILL remember that even though I over eat in private, my excess poundage is there for ALL THE WORLD TO SEE. I WILL Take Off Pounds Sensibly.

See you

Hello, I'm Linda, I live in Maine. I always have a hard time posting and sharing things about my self, so praying that I can overcome it and concentrate on God to guide me more.

I agree with you 100% GENESIS2012. I have tried so many times to stick to something but I expect perfection from myself and when I don't live up to that, I stop. So I'm basically all or nothing. Thanks for sharing your heart .. I just decided to try SP again (I think I've been away for 2+ years this time) and I am so thankful I found this group. I recently dedicated my life to God at the beginning of this year and now I need to get some other aspects of my life in order. God Bless!

Hi to all my Brothers and Sisters in Christ. I have been a member of Spark People 4-ever emoticon at least it feels that way. I first joined under a different username and I then re-joined much later as Genesis2012. The first time I joined was somewhere around 2004 - who can remember! emoticon All I can say with any certainty is that up until a month ago, I was playing the same old diet games I've been playing for the last 15 years. I would start logging in on Spark every day; track every morsel that passed my lips; force myself to exercise when I just plain didn't feel like it, and beat myself up every time I deviated a fraction of an inch emoticon In other words I would sabotage my efforts over and over again. Then, about a month ago, I got back on Spark and decided to stop trying to be "perfect" and just be me. Here I was - a Christian woman, going to church, Bible study, doing volunteer work - why I even work at a church - and yet I wasn't acting in a way that would be pleasing to God. The Lord loves me because I am His - not because I am perfect. I can't be perfect because I am part of a fallen world. But, we all know the Good News - He sent His Son, Jesus Christ - who is perfect - to pay for our sins once and for all. Wow, why was I missing this when it came to what i was trying to do for myself. I am now relaxing and letting it happen. I'm tracking but not obsessing. Some days I eat on the low end of my calorie range - some days on the high end - but every day I give thanks and I ask my Lord to walk with me on this journey to health and weight loss.

I've been on and off several teams since I came back. It seems to me that many of the teams are very inactive these days. So, I've been checking out the different teams and checking the threads to see what they are focusing on. I haven't been very motivated by most of them but then today I looked at this team and thought I'd join because the one BIG thing we all have in common is a love of God. I look forward to sharing feelings and experiences with all of you emoticon I, honestly, don't manage to post every day but I do log on and at least try to read what's going on with my teams. I will try to jump in on a thread whenever I can and hope I will be able to give and get some good insight and support. emoticon

Peace and blessings to you all in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit!

Hi everyone, my name is Bonnie. I grew up with the Church of Christ and then when I turned eighteen I left the church. Part of it was me, but part of it was the specific church. I've recently found my faith again and was baptized at the age of 26 this past Wednesday. The decision was heartfelt but it took my mind a bit of adjustment. Anyway, I am going to a different church (especially since I live in another state than I did as a kid lol) and feel more comfortable there.

I have been on Spark People for almost thirteen months now and just reached the 100 pound milestone. My mindset has changed so much over the past year and I'm just as proud of that as I am with the weight loss itself.

Starting weight: 309.4
1st goal: 10.4 pounds, 299 by July 2, 2014 (met June 25th)
2nd goal: 30 pounds- 10% of remaining weight, 269 by October 15, 2014 (met September 24th)
3rd goal: 27 pounds- 10% of remaining weight, 242 by January 7, 2015 (met January 28th)
4th goal: 24 pounds: 10% of remaining weight, 218 by April 29, 2015 (met May 6th)
5th goal: 22 pounds: 10% of remaining weight, 196 by August 19, 2015

Hi, I'm Amy. I'm a stay-at-home mom to 4 kids (ages 15, 13, 12, 10). I was on Spark years ago and somehow just fell away from it as life got busier and the kids got older. Now I am back and needing to lose some weight and get in shape. I know I can't do it alone. I need God on my side. I can't do anything without Him! But I also want to make some friends here for support and encouragement for my journey.

My name is Elaine. I am returning to Sparkpeople after a long time away. I'm happy to be part of a group that honors God in everything. With His help and your friendship, I hope to make friends and lose weight and grow closer to Him. I am however tech challenged. Finding my way around this site
is tuff for me. My age might help to explain why 70yrs.

Hello I'm Michelle, 29 yrs old. I'm so glad to be a part of this team filled with so much faith and positivity. I'm looking for some great Christian friends and to lose some more weight in the process. Let's keep God first, encourage each other and let's get fit together! emoticon emoticon emoticon


I am well on my way to a 100+ lb. weight loss & there is no doubt in my mind that I will reach it!

Hi I'm Marty. Just looking for some Christian sport as I get my life together. I was raped 19 years ago. I have a beautiful son. He was abused as a child. He has healed and is a wonderful young man who is graduating soon. Now it is my turn to get my life together. I see sp as a step between counseling and the real world.

Hi! I've joined this team in the past and I always had good intentions but I was never very active. I have been away from Sparkpeople for a long time so I thought I would start out right with a place where I could Praise the Lord and hopefully build a comradery of like minded folks.

Hello everyone ~ I rejoined SparkPeople yesterday and I am on the journey of health and weight loss. I did this about 6 years ago but got sidetracked short of my goal. I am ready to try again and learn from the mistakes that held me back last time. Glad to have fellow Christian sisters here to be on this journey with. We can encourage and lift each other up! God bless you all :)

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

"Behold, like the clay in the potter's hand, so are you in my hand."
~ Jeremiah 18:6


Thank you Jesus for this day that You have made! I can do all things because You strengthen me.

Hello, I am a 44 year old female in Middle TN. Married 22 years and an 11 year old son. We also have 1 beagle mix dog. I can't tell you how many times I have started to improve my health, and how many times I have fallen off. Truth be known I have been off more then on over the last 8 years since I took a desk job. I am inspired to rekindle my efforts. Our church started the Daniel Plan.

Each day is a new begining.

Make time count. Don't count time.

I am not perfect, but I am forgiven.

Hello everyone! I have been a member of Spark People for quite a few years. I have been up and down with my weight since I had my children. I would like to lose about 30 pounds, but my biggest concern is getting healthy and having more energy. I see my daughter falling into my bad habits and I would like to change them before it's too late.

G'day All, I am new to this group (and Sparks this month). My name is Abby, I live in the Pacific Northwest. I need to lose a good deal of weight, a bit over 80 pounds. I live with constant Afib which keeps me from doing some activities. I have some friends on this weight-loss journey with me, as well as you here on Sparks now, so I am praying we will all be successful. It's never an easy thing to do and anyone trying to lose weight and get healthier can use all the help and support they can get. Hope to get my Sparks page setup soon.

My past mistakes do not dictate my future. At any given moment I have the ability to change and choose a new path for myself. Today I choose to follow my plan and live a healthy lifestyle.

Hi
I'm going to do this! This time I want to commit myself to be happy and healthy so I'm not doing it alone. I want to be healthy for God, my family and myself. I want to conquer this sin of mine so it no longer brings me down. The sin of obesity. I want to be happy healthy and walk with Jesus forever. I'm praying that God will provide my way so I can bring all my sin to the cross and forgive me and show me the righteous path. I also pray for all who else have these sins and bless them. In Jesus name I pray Amen. emoticon

I want to conquer this sin of mine so it no longer brings me down. The sin of obesity. I want to be happy healthy and walk with Jesus forever. I'm praying that God will provide my way so I can bring all my sin to the cross and forgive me and show me the righteous path. I also pray for all who else have these sins and bless them. In Jesus name I pray Amen. emoticon

Hello! My name is Marilyn. I am 60 years old and a widow. I raised 4 children and now have 7 grandchildren. I lost my oldest son in March 2014. I am back to reading the Bible and enjoying it. I also have several Bible studies sent to my email that I am doing. I am using the Prof. Grant Horner's Bible Reading System so reading 10 chapters per day plus I have the KJV Bible on CD and I listen to 1 CD per day. Each Cd has at least 15 chapters of one book of the Bible. I do not work anymore so I spend most of the day Reading and Listening to the Bible and reading articles about God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit and Christian living.
I am unable to attend church because I don't have transportation. I am wanting to get healthy so that I can get back to church. If I am healthy I would be able to walk to church. I have a fallen arch and arthritis in my knees so walking very far is very difficult.

Hi everyone, ny mane is Jo. I joined SP in 2011 but never really had a chance to start. So many changes between then and now. My husband passed of cancer in 2012 after a grueling 19 month battle. I joined when we were in a good point in that journey. I am now ready to really start this journey! Like Heather, I too have found a wonderful church family and am so thankful to Jesus Christ for bringing me thru and to this point in my life.
I look forward to the fellowship and support I hope to find on SP and in this group......

Hi, everyone! I'm Heather and I'm starting SP again for the third time. The first time around, I had great success in the three months I was active. Then, God blessed my husband and I with our daughter who just turned two and during the pregnancy and postpartum period, I've put all that weight and then some back on. I believe there are medication issues contributing to that, but nonetheless, it's time for me to get serious and do what I am able to do about it. I've tried and failed by myself so many times and after finding a wonderful church home and family after many years of searching, my relationship with Christ has grown and I've realized I cannot do this without him and his Grace. I'm excited to be here with fellow Jesus Lovers and excited to get healthy again for my myself, my husband and my daughter and to glorify God and this temple he blessed me with!

He who conquers others is strong; he who conquers himself is mighty.

Hello. I am 27 years old and just recently gave my heart to the Lord. It happened on New Year's Eve 2014. So I am very new to all this. My family has been going to church since before I was even born. I stopped going after I entered high school and never went again unless it was a special occasion. Getting saved last week was the best decision I have ever made. I feel happier, when I was depressed beforehand. I feel peaceful and calm. 3 days after I prayed for Christ to save me, my husband also gave his heart to the Lord. I love that we will be going on this journey together to spread God's word. I'm really looking forward to making new friends on here.

How nice to find an active Christian group on Sparkpeople! emoticon

I just started "Sparking" last week. Last week found me just learning my way around here, learning to track my food and exercise.....but now that I'm back to work (school library), I'm going to try to stay below my daily targets.

I look forward to getting to know you all and working toward our goals together!

Praise and thanks to God, who unites us in faith and made us branches on the Vine to bear fruit of the Vine.

I live in Balcones Hts, TX; think San Antonio, I-10 & 410 interchange. So much to learn and reveal as we walk together as grateful suffering-servants, his royal priests of his Kingdom, living stones being fit together. Can I hear an Amen in the house? Hahaha:-)

I'm glad to find a group here to grow with spiritually as well as get healthier. That is until we get our new flesh on the other side of the mystery of his Return to gather us for eternity. He is coming back, like he promised, with the price already paid. (Anyone recall Norman, Stonehill, Love Song, et al?) I'm dating myself, aren't I?

My wife and I live below the poverty-level, but have been learning 18 years to be giving, loving our neighbors and brethren in real + practical ways. It is our joy to grow as living sacrifices, which God says is our only true spiritual worship. We look forward to online fellowship, perhaps even meeting if you're ever in town.

The peace of Christ Jesus to you. -ga-

your fellow suffering-servant,

Hello,

I have rejoined SP after a few years off. I've set a goal to lose 65 pounds by the end of next Spring. I'm feeling motivated right now. This site has made quite a few changes since I last joined and I really like it! I'm excited to look around and be an active member here.

Hello. :) My name is Christina and I just turned 22 in August. I have been a member of SparkPeople for a while, but this is the first time that I ever taken the site and my weight loss journey seriously. I would like to lose 40-50 pounds and have a healthy BMI again for the first time since my freshman year of high school.

Please feel free to visit my SparkPage and add me as a friend. I would love to talk with you and support each other on our healthy lifestyle journeys. :)

God bless!

Hello, My name is Darlene and I can't remember if I was on this team or not but I'm a christian lady that goes to a nice church. I lost my husband 9 yrs ago and was living in Shelton at the time when he passed but now I'm living in Tacoma Washington. It's true when your children get married some of them live with you and my youngest daughter and her husband and youngest daughter live with me in a one bedroom apt. I wanted to live a lone but some how they followed me up here and been staying with me every since. She is my care giver now since I'm having a bad time with my back and right leg and now I have to walk with a cane and I live on the second floor
My oldest granddaughter is going to college now and I can't believe how fast they grow up.
Just wanted to stop by and intro myself.

Hello Everyone, my name Is Gwen. I was raised in the Bedford Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn, NY. My parents showed me by example the importance of God in my life through weekly church services, church youth fellowship activities, home bible study and nightly prayer. When I was 13, my father died suddenly and my faith slowly coughed off. My beliefs were driven by my father's prodding. Things worsen through my early adult years which were filled with sin. Some years later, my second eldest sister became gravely ill after a long period of remission from cancer. As I spent those last weeks with her, I was perplexed by her inner strength as her body and mind deteriorated. She prayed day and night in the hospital and it healed her spirit if not her body.
~
Slowly I found my way back and turned my life over to God. Faced with my own stretch with illnesses; I found God was always there, a Father awaiting the prodigal daughter to come back into the fold. God brought me through it all. My faith journey is always changing, what doesn't change is the source from which all my blessings flow.

Hi - My name is Jean, I live in Wisconsin and work as a medical transcriptionist. I am 60 years old and desperately need to lose weight. It's amazing how when you are younger you don't pay attention to your weight and then one day WHAM! You look in the mirror and just want to cry. I need to lose close to 50 pounds and it is not as easy as it used to be. I am married, never had children but have had cats for a LONG time. Right now I have two cats IPod who is 4 and Snickers who is 2. They keep me going. I want to become a better Christian and hoping that interacting with others will help me become a better one. I have been trying to read the Bible every day, some from the OT and some from the NT.

Hoping to make some new friends.

DON'T GIVE UP, DON'T EVER GIVE UP.

Hey y'all. My name is Courtney. I'm 28 , nurse practitioner, from Mississippi. My weight has slowly crept up since high school. And now I'm finally getting it off for good. My relationship with Jesus Christ is the most important thing in my life & the ONLY reason I've had any success with this weight loss journey I'm on.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Hi I am Lorri. I have been a member for a while and seen my up and downs with my weight loss. My son is out of the house in college, work is settling down so that I am working totally from home, so it is isolated sometimes, so I joined a fitcamp--many young people both skinny and needing to lose, but it reminds me of my army times and I rather enjoy it, even if it is just to humilate myself. Since my son turned 18, I hadn't been as devoted to church, though I work on Wednesdays to cleanup for Wed night dinner. I did that to get me close to my church family even if I feel out of place without my son. I have always been that way though--It's not normal to be middle aged and not married, at least not in my community. I don't want to change my church, but I would like to fit in more. I do love God and Christ, without Him I can do nothing. So I am going to work on being active in this team--at least for reading because I know how well He can work in our lives if we let Him.

Lorri

Don't lose focus. Keep your eye on the prize and expect to get it even when others don't think you will.

Hi,
My name is Hester. I am a christ follower and have been for all of my life. I love him with all of my heart and soul, and i talk to him every day. There are a couple of things i have been praying for lately and i know God will give it to me in tge right time, but i could use more prayer to be patient for it. Mostly i am praying for a job and my health.

It is nice to meet all of you, and i hope you have a blessed day. :D

Hi Guys,

My name is John. I am a Chef and a Culinary Missionary. My job is the most amazing job in the world. I get to follow God's lead and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the power of a shared meal. I go into local, state, and national disasters to prepare and serve high quality, professionally prepared meals for victims, volunteers and first responders. I have been around SP since 2009. I really just got serious about losing weight in May of this year. I was working in a tornado ravaged area of Louisville Mississippi, and realized that I was having trouble getting around my mobile kitchen. I stood on a scale on May 15, 2014 and realized I was 278 pounds. That was the tipping point for me. I refuse to be a fat chef. It will take a lot of work but I am going to lose weight. I have lost 44 pounds since that day. I have 56 pounds left to go before I hit my goal weight of 178 pounds. I will get there. It will take some time, but God has given me a vision and a plan and I need to lose this weight to be able to follow his will with excellence.

I am a husband, father of two teen age sons, a Certified Executive Chef, a nationally appointed missionary, and a Licensed Minister with the Assemblies of God.

That's me in a nut shell.

Hi, I'm Kathy and looking for support on losing weight. I have been a member since 2008 but not been active. I plan on being active on SPARKPEOPLE and looking for help and encouragement on losing. When I started the group in 2008 I weighted 268 now I weigh 239 which I know is not a lot a weight loss but it is something. I also hope I can encourage others.

Hello, my name is Pam and I live in Des Moines, Iowa. I am returning to SP for support and love as I continue to battle this journey of weight loss and to learn how to live without overeating and bingeing. As of today, I don't have any physical health problems. I do go to OA and see a behavior therapist for my eating habits and to stay in balance emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I will turn 49 this month and I pray that by the time I am fifty I will have eating under control and the depression removed from my body and mind once and for all. Today, I surrender to our Lord and I will do all things for His glory.

Copying my intro for another group to save a bit of time...a bit lengthy, sorry...


WHO YOU ARE AND WHERE YOU LIVE:

What is your name:
-- Lisa

Where are you from?
-- Windsor, CT

How long have you lived there:
-- Since 1993

YOUR FAMILY:
Are you married?
-- Married to my college sweetheart for 31 years

Do you have kids?
-- Yes - our miracle 'baby', Annalisa, is now 23

Do you have grandkids?
-- not yet (except one by informal "adoption", a child of a young lady we took into our home unmarried and pregnant with no family support...came to love her and her little one like our own)

Do you have pets?
-- 2 cats: Curious a butterscotch tabby w/topaz eyes, and Jasmine, a small green-eyed Maine Coon mix

Do you live near any of your family?
-- My family (all born-again living-for-Jesus Christians) has all moved to SC in the last 8 years, one at a time, my sister just moved about 2 months ago. My DH's family is all within 30 minute ride.

YOUR WORK:
Do you work outside of the home?
-- Yes, I'm a real estate broker / owner and traveling Notary Public

What types of jobs around the home do you enjoy.
-- organizing (but you can't tell it the way my home looks now!) and sometimes cooking

Which ones would you rather not do?
-- HATE cleaning the bathrooms and mopping the floors! Also not a fan of yard work!

WHAT YOU DO FOR FUN AND RELAXATION:
Do you have hobbies?
-- reading, listening & singing praise & worship music, bible-study, photography (although my sister is the real pro with the big camera!), scrap-booking (wish I could remember the last time I took some time to do this), really tough crosswords, crocheting (only during the winter--too hot otherwise), connecting with friends...

Favorite thing I do to help others: Finance & budget counseling, negotiating bill settlements, and helping people get out of debt!

types of movies you enjoy?
-- romantic comedies and dramas (I'm such a girl...)

What types of books do you enjoy?
-- mystery, Christian fiction & non-fiction

YOUR HEALTH GOALS:
Healthy weight (under 175). Healthy cholesterol levels. Normal blood sugar levels WITHOUT medication. Lose enough weight to get off the CPAP machine!

What kind or exercise to you like to do regularly?
-- Swimming and walking are the best right now, but I am looking forward to being able to do some real hiking and biking in the future. Eventually, I'd like to get back to other things I once enjoyed a lot: horseback riding, bowling, canoeing and tennis. Right now, my knees will not allow me to do them.

How much do you want to lose?
-- From where I started (343) I want to lose about 175 lbs. (goal weight around 165)
-- Got to get off enough weight that my knees are no longer endangered by what I try to make them carry everyday!

YOUR SPECIAL GIFTS:
What special gifts has God given you?
-- I am a "gap walker" and a worshipper. God has made me very versatile and flexible and so I am able to do almost anything I need (or HE needs me) to do at any given time (I know without a doubt this is ALL from Him!). I exercise my spiritual giftings most often in the areas of administration (assist with church bookkeeping/office work), counseling (budget & debt elimination and spiritual warfare on a one-to-one basis), teaching (lead bible study), sing on worship team, but right now I am filling in on the sound board as well...

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) [This MOUNTAIN of weight IS going to GO!]

Hello I'm a 44yr old man I have been a Christian my entire life I did fall away from God back in 1991 when my wife & child died in a car accident but I lived. I re-found the church when I was in the US Navy I was baptized in a Evangelical Free Church in Norfolk, VA in 1994.

Now I have remarried to a wonderful Christian lady who has Multiple Sclerosis for whom I am her caregiver she had 5 adult children from a previous marriage so now I am a step-dad/grandpa to 1 young lady who has 2 children, 3 other young men with no kids and another young man who married a woman who had 5 kids of her own one with severe Cerebral Palsy she is 14 so a total of 7 grand kids that we love the best we can since they are all in the Worcester, MA area & NJ.

I have a goal to be back down to 190 pounds by Christmas 2014 but I am at just 25# loss over the last 11mo.

I'm a family caregiver & I also have MS gained to much weight sitting at home we have 7 grand children & now 2 of the grand kids live with us full time & they are my exercise too my daughter moved home to get her life in order too

Hi! I am a 50 year old English born again Christian lady, married, no kids, wanting to lose at least 62 pounds to get down to a healthy weight. I am going on holiday Saturday and will be starting to count calories and walk for exercise when I get back on Sunday 3rd August. Please sparkmail me if youd like to buddy up.

I'm trying to get connected here after a long hiatus. Like many other's I've been on Spark for a while. I have been away while I was pregnant and getting used to mommy-hood. My handsome little son is now 8 months old and getting mobile, and I'm realizing that I'm in real need of getting healthy so I can keep up with him. Not to mention that I want to teach him to be active and eat healthy and I want to have ton of fun with him as he grows up. I don't want to be the heavy mom sitting on the side lines watching the kids have fun with dad or not be able to do fun things because of my weight.

Like last summer I realized that it was going to be a long time before I would be able to Kayak with my husband. For whatever reason he just loves kayaking, even though he doesn't do it very often. I was 5 months pregnant, and wasn't up for the task of kayaking for my first time when my husband and his family went Kayaking on a little river in Up North Michigan. When they came back and were sharing the stories, the weight limit on the kayak came up. It's only 190 lbs! His dad weighed about 200 and was sitting low and dragging in the shallow areas of the river. I would have sank the thing! I've got a long way to go to get from 276 to under 190. But that's my goal - I want to kayak with my husband. I'm 6 ft tall, so getting under 190 would be getting close to my ultimate goal weight of 150.

Here's to God's glory being reflected by my life - inside and out!

emoticon I live most of the week on a big rig with my over the road truck driver husband.. I love it but it is very challenging; I'm up 15 pounds in the two plus years I've been riding with him. emoticon

May God bless our desire to honor Him as we remember that we are His temple and help us to live like we really believe that! emoticon emoticon

Hello everyone! I am new to using SparkPeople (although I created an account a while ago). I want my life to be honoring to God and I know that my current weight does not reflect this. I want God to be first and foremost in my life and am thankful to have found this team!

~~ 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!
