Hi, my name is Funmi. I am glad to be here. I have struggled with heartbreak in the past, i'm sure we've all. I am hoping to keep healing from hurts, forgive, release the circumstances, disappointments, and unmet expectation to my heavenly Father and ask him for a new strategy for my life.

Good morning! I'm new to this team, but joined sparkpeople in November 2013. I've lost 19 lbs since being on this site, most of that since the 1st of the year. I give all the praise and honor to my Savior Jesus, cause I couldn't do this without Him! I've struggled with my weight for most of my life, have dieted, lost and re-gained. But now, I am doing this for the right reason, to honor the temple God has given me to use.

I live in Morris, OK with my wonderful husband. I am a homemaker and feel blessed to be able to care for my husband and home. I volunteer as an advocate for foster children through the CASA program. MY husband and I belong to the Christian Motorcyclist Assoc.

Best of all, I love Jesus!! I cannot ever imagine my life without Him. I know that with Him by my side I can do anything! God bless y'all and keep looking up!

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

"I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made." Psalm 139:14a

Good morning! I am new to this team. I have been active on Spark People since last summer and have lost nearly forty pounds. I still need to lose about 55-60 pounds. I have been married almost 26 years and have two sons. The oldest is 21 and the youngest is nine. I am a stay at home mom. My weight has been at a plateau since December when I had thyroid surgery and was diagnosed with thyroid cancer.

I have been feeling a little overwhelmed lately with medical problems in our family. I also have a history of neurologic problems the doc has been trying to figure out for a long time. My husband suffers from chronic back and neck pain and seems to be getting depressed from it lately. Now my little boy who is only nine has been having some chronic pain for several months that we are trying to figure out also. I know the Lord has a plan in all of this, but sometimes it is just hard.

Thankfully we are involved in a wonderful church. I really feel like I need the support and prayers of a Christian team and will also help support others in this journey. Looking forward to getting to know you.

Hello everyone ! I am not new to Spark, but I have been away for too long. During my absence,however, a wonderful thing happened. I have been Born Again !!!!!!! Praise God ! I have been over eating way too much and craving sweets like crazy, so it's time for some changes. I have been given this fabulous new life and intend to be healthy in it. I know all this bad eating is from the enemy and I also know the devil is a liar !!! So I am speaking freedom from the spirit of gluttony in the mighty name of Jesus. So I have said it....so it is done ! To God be the Glory Here I go !!!!!! emoticon

I am not new to Sparkpeople, but I am new to the message board, and honestly a little intimidated. I trust in the Lord everyday to guide me and that includes taking care of my body. I am trying to lose 10 pounds and at 54 it does not go as easy as before. I am glad that I found this team, and I am seeking for encouragement to achieve my goal. I Look forward to become part of this community..

Every day a small change for me eventually makes a large step in the overall picture.

Praise GOD - Ask and it shall be given to you... Seek and you shall find. Keep GOD in the forefront of this journey. It was tuff for me and still is but the difference is GOD and others. I remember Opha saying 'never give up... no matter what' and I never did. I keep on trying and relying on HIM. He is our WAYMAKER. I am new to the christian living team but not new to SP. I love SP and I thank GOD for the vision HE gave the CEO to start this weigh loss management process. If you need to contact me, please do and we can lift each other up in word, prayer, or comfort.

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE THRU GOD!

Hi, Jackie here age 56/ hairdresser / artist mom of 2/ grandmom of 3/ looking for someplace to type and leave my prayers about weight loss.....its a habit I got into... In hopes the prayers I leave here will be agreed with by another person if faith and I will agree with you in turn for your prayers. I am probably about 60 to 75 lbs over weight and have much to do but know I cannot do this w/out HIM!

Hi Everyone :)

So I have joined this team before but I became less interested in sparkpeople so I deleted all my teams because I didn't know anyone anymore. But I'm back :) 2014 has had a lot of obstacles so far. But when I was saved and put my old self behind I promised myself I'd keep pushing through my fears. The devil has really been trying lately to get me to doubt my Faith. So rejoining this group and sparkpeople reaffirming my faith.

Nothing worth having comes easy.

Hi everyone!

My name is Lara, and I'm a 32-year-old, recently diagnosed Type II Diabetic. I have two smart, funny little boys: Jordan (13) and Tyson (10, will be 11 in a few days). My goal is to get my weight down to the lower midpoint of my average BMI and to successfully control my blood sugar without medication. I look forward to getting to know everyone. :)

Love, La-La

Hello,
My name is Joyce and I am from Texas. I have been married to my husband Harmon for 46 years and we have 2 grown children and 5 grandchildren. Our daughter lives next door to us and our ministry to the Lord at this time in our lives is to care for her two children while she and her husband work. I have loved Jesus all my life and am active in my church (Sunnyvale FBC). I sing alto in our church choir.

I have been a member of Sparkpeople for a little over a year and have lost 31 pounds. I am now struggling to stay on the weight loss program that I have been doing and need to get back on track. I would appreciate prayers and support and look forward to being a part of this team.

Hi! I'm Irene and I live in Central Ohio near Columbus. I have struggled with weight most of my life. I am trying to lose weight so my doctor will take me off some or ALL of my medications. It's a struggle but I know Christ is helping me along the way....I just need to remind myself to ask Him each day!

God bless!
Irene

Hello. I'm Elayne and I am a 65 year old woman married to my best friend. Arjay for 34 yrs. on Christmas Eve. I have no children, but consider myself Mom to my feline fur baby named Max.
I love all animals and am amazed when I see all of God's creations.

I am involved in music ministry at my church which is First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Fl. I also am honored and humbled to be an Elder there for the past 4 years, starting my 5th year.

I play sax in a group called Joyful Tones every Sunday, and am also in another group that goes out to nursing homes to play for the residents there. I also sing alto in the choir.I Praise God for my musical gift and believe he plays and sings through me. I am playing for him, not myself.

I'd like to lose another 5% of my weight and see how it goes, I've been maintaining at goal for over 6 years but have recently decided to lose a few more pounds.

Thanks for reading this and I look forward to meeting new friends here on this team. emoticon

To be a musician is really something. It goes very,very deep. My music is the spiritual expression of what I am--my faith, my knowledge, my being." by John Coltrane

Hello, my name is Diane and I am returning after a long spell away. I met my first goal and managed to keep it off for almost 5 years. Recently with health problems and inactivity and a few other problems, I managed to gain some of it back. I knew exactly where I could get support and help to lose those pounds. I am so grateful for this site and this group! I hope I can be supportive to all of you as well.

Hi! My name is Carly, I am from Canada and I love the Lord with all my heart! I'm just finishing my last semester to becoming a registered nurse and have let home issues and university life add many many pounds to my body. I'm starting now to finally get the motivation to make goals and see them through. I'm excited to get back to the athlete and active person I was when I was younger.

I am a beliver and I am the Minister to Women in my church in north Alabama. I go on mission trips several times per year. I have been to the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Borneo and Nicaragua. In February I am going to Uganda. (Prayers please)!
I need to lose 20 pounds. I have been working at it since Janaury 1st. I have lost 1 1/2 pounds since then. I am starting The Daniel Plan this week. I have slowly been edging into it by weaning myself from sugar and from artificial sweetners. I am limiting white bread, but have whole wheat.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

Morning everyone!

My name is Michelle and I am from the Caribbean. I have been trying to lose weight...well...since I had my daughter 8 years ago and it has been a struggle since. I am an emotional eater and I have learned that diet is my biggest problem. I plan to work on that heavily this new year and get back my post baby body for the sake of my health.

I have a family history of addiction, heart attacks, and cancer, so you can imagine why I want to get this dome asap. I will be 32 (erk) on the 6th...and being approx. 60ish lbs overweight is definitely not a good thing. I have decided to work on myself this year and do things that I have always wanted to do...I will be finishing my degree soon and plan to be working as well, which would give me funds to buy the healthy stuffs.

What made me join this team was the fact that I love GOD with all my heart and without him I would have not made it this far. I want everything I do to be a testament to his glory...even my weight loss. I am planning on some mission trips to Africa, India, etc in a couple of years and I want to be fit as a fiddle when I do so. I hope that we can become great supports for each other during this time and hopefully beyond! :)

OOPS I posted in the wrong spot so I am reposting it here.....


I am coming back after a couple of years away. Last year I did Slimming World for a few months and lost a few lbs but then we moved to the country and there is no gym near by. I need to get off my duff and at least walk some. I just bought a fitbit to keep track of my steps hopefully that will help. I am starting this year at 234.4. I would like to get to onederland by 2015 but I lose really slow so we will see. I have a lot of health problems and I am on disability so I don't work. I am a 64 YO grandma of 4. I live with my oldest son and daughter in law and two of the grands. We have 5 acres in north TX between Dallas and Fort Worh.

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

Hello, may name is Chakara
I live in Springfield, Ohio

I joined in 2009, but never really used the site. I have been using the site faithfully for about two weeks or so and it seems to be helping. I am hoping to lose 170 pounds total. I have lost 50 so far. I am not sure I can even visualize what that looks like for me, so for now, my goal is another 25 by late Feb.


My name is Chakara, I live in Ohio.

I am trading in who I have always been for who I was truly intended to be!

hello all I am new to this team. I joined about a week or so and did not introduce myself.
I am in frosty Louisville, KY (Go Cards) and have been a member of SP for over 4 years. I have started over several times but this time I am going to stay to get it off. My goals are doable and I know that with faith and Gods hands guiding me I can do this this time for real.

This team is going to inspire and motivate me too as long as I log in and say hello and read what is going on in the communities I will do well.

I enjoy going to church and singing in the choir, as well as attending Sunday School. My church is very large and I have to sing in the morning at 8am so I am going to log off so that I can get in the bed so that I keep my commitment to God and get my workout in before I leave out in the morning. Be blessed all of you and know that God is on our sides even if we fall.

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Take risks, if you win, you will be happy, if you lose. you will be wise.

Hello! My name is Jake. I have been on the weight loss roller coaster since my freshman year of college. I am now in my 4th year. I am happy to say that I currently weigh less than I did when I started, and I eventually had lost 45lbs at one point. However, I have been riding a roller coaster of gains and losses since then. Currently, I still weigh less than when I started on my journey, but only about 15 lbs less. So here I am, back on SparkPeople. I have done this a couple times before, but always fall off the wagon and lose focus. I think it is time I get my act together and finally do this for the long haul.

Here we go!

Hello,
My name is Renee, and I've been a Sparker for almost 4 years. I'm a wife, and mom of 4. I have lost 110 pounds, but after some life challenges, realized I have "found" 15 pounds. I'm struggling to refocus, and hoped to find encouragement and inspiration through fellow team mates, and the word of God. Thanks, all!

This is my 2nd time trying sparkpeople. I think my biggest obstacle is feeling like I am doing this alone. We have recently moved across the country and don't have any friends. I would love to have someone to work out with, encourage and pray with, but at least someone I can be accountable to. I am a stay at home mom with 3 boys all in school. My husband is a pastor in full time ministry and currently starting a non-profit to help foster kids and kids in low income areas. I am a breast cancer survivor and I am coming up on 3 years since my surgery. I have 40 - 60 pounds to lose.

Hello! I logged in to Sparkpeople today, knowing that I have to do something to help myself. Turns out, this account is from 2007! And I started 50 lbs lighter then! Anyway, I think I'm going through a midlife crisis. I struggle with the simplest of decisions... so, here I am... needing to get on a schedule and work at my diet and exercise again... God help me!

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest, if we do not give up. - Galations 6:9

Thanks for the welcome! I haven't been on Sparkpeople in about 3 years and it looks like a lot of my old teams and buddies have become inactive so I decided to go team hunting again. :) Glad I found y'all!

I am from NH and this past year I have been diagnosed with a heart condition which has medically retired me from nursing. God has been guiding me through this journey and every day is a blessing. I am living a healthier life. I am grateful for my wonderful husband, son and lots of supportive family and friends.

Hi,
I am new to the team! I work swing shift as a medication aid and find it hard to have support in my christian walk and my healthy lifestyle. I am completely opposite as far as the norm. I work out at night after work, I attend Bible study before work once a week and we are currently doing the Breaking Free study by Beth Moore. It is so important to have support of other believers in our day to day walk especially in the condition of the world. I need reminders that God's grace is good enough for me and he gives it freely everyday. I am working on my personal relationship with the Lord and need some accountability. I look forward to getting to know you all.

You haven't failed until you quit trying!
keep on Keeping on and fake it till you make it!!!

Hello i am new to the team. Just found out about this team it is great to have christian people to talk to. I am tiring to eat healthier i know God is with me and is telling me it time to change my eating habits which till now I didn't want to give up eating junk food i was thinking i gave up everything else he asked of me but food was my life I was a emotional eater and I was not giving it up. Plus I had a lot of things happen to me that made it had for me to want to lose weight I built up a wall to protect me from men. God and I are working on that issue.

Hi. I am 37 yrs old. Married for 10 years now unfortunately most of it has been a struggle with respecting each other, we are now getting stronger in letting God lead us and to get into the roles that he has placed us in. I am looking for a group that may help me in my weight struggles and at the same time not look at me like I am from outer space when I mention something like letting my husband be the head of my household. Still learning how to work with Spark People website.


Just had a new thought. Normally it is 2 steps forward and 1 step back, if you find yourself in reverse with 1 step forward and 2 steps back then just turn around and walk backwards.

Hello, my name is Heather. I am 28 years old, and though I was raised in the church, I unfortunately had a series of negative events happen in my life right out of high school that ultimately led me astray from my beliefs. But now I have found my way back and am look to basically start my life over from scratch. I can't wait to start this new journey in my life with my renewed faith in God and the support of like minded people to encourage me along the way.

If you change nothing, nothing will change!

My name is Bob. I became a Christian at the age of 25 as a result of door-to-door visitation. I praise God for that day - almost 34 years later. I am anxious to get to know you and pray that we will be able to encourage each other as we walk on this journey to better health. Stop by my Sparkpage if you get a chance and say "Hi".
Your fellow Sparker,
Bob

Hi, I am Bobbie, emoticon
I am 59, happily married and I live in Southern Oregon. I started up SparkPeople again June 17th. I was resisting joining more than two teams because my time is limited. However, I love your team motto, my desire is to do "All for the Glory of God" also. I look forward to meeting brothers and sisters who love the Lord and desire to bring Him Glory in all of our circumstances.

My goal is to lose weight, be healthy and be prepared for God's plan for me moment by moment.

"Behold, what manner of Love the Father hath bestowed upon us." 1John 3:1

Hi Everyone, I'm Stacy and I'm new (again) to Spark People. I'm 42, married to a great man, and together we have 4 children. We live in the beautiful state of Oregon.

I'm excited about joining this team, and I firmly believe Proverbs 16:3: "Commit your actions to the LORD, and your plans will succeed."

I'm looking forward to making new friends, providing support when it's needed, and growing together in the Lord.

God bless you all,
Stacy

I have plantar faciitis, too. Sometimes it can be a real problem. I have orthotics, but don't always wear them. Today I wore them and I felt less stable when I would try to jog. It seemed like I was more proned to turn an ankle. So I did more walking than running. My problem is when I start walking, I walk too slowly. Sigh.
Here is a cool verse our pastor shared yesterday:
In 1 Timothy 4:17, Paul said, "But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed..." I am trying to envision Christ at my side whatever I am doing-- walking, jogging, swimming, eating a meal. He will give me strength! I know that I will be most effective for Him if I am more fit.
He is near!

I just got back on board too. I am happy that you came back. I am 52 and I completely understand the aches and pains.

Congratulations on you new grand baby. I am here if you need someone to talk to.

Hi my name is Pam and I have just come back to SP after a few years. I have about 80 lbs to lose and I am kind of discouraged. I have plantar fasciitis so I'm having trouble with my go to exercise like walking, hiking or Zumba. I have chronic neck and back pain, which is so much worse when i am heavy. I work full time and I am going to school, too. So my time is extremely limited. Some days I think I should just wait to work on losing weight when I am done with school and I will have time to cook proper meals and have the whole evening after work to go to the gym But I can't do that. I am alredy 50 and with my family history of diabetes, high blood pressure and heart problems. i really need to do something now. My first grand baby was born on Friday and I want to be around to see her grow up. So I have begun swimming. I have been fairly inconsistent because I have to get up at 5 am to do it. But this week I actually made it 5 days and swam a total of 3 miles. I have a hard time losing weightby swimming but for now that is what I can do. I am joining Tha group because I need the encouragement. Well, time to get ready for church.

Carolinakiwi,
I'll pray for you and your daughter's families. I can't imagine what you're going through, living in NC and her being in KS. Honestly, I just don't know what to say. My heart goes out to you and her.

I never lived in the Smokies, but I have been through there several times. I used to drive truck with my DH. Drop dead gorgeous at day break! No matter where we look, if we really look, we can see His majesty.

Hi, Ronda, Great to meet you! We are also Baptist, living in Ohio.... I fell in love with the Gburg / Pigeon Forge area from vacations. I think you are also in the Sword & Spirit team, which is also a wonderful group :) I read one of your blogs the other day and was really inspired by your Spirit in all you have been through. Look forward to getting to know you! Susan

Wellcome, Susan. I love your user name. It makes me miss NC. We lived there for 12 years. We lived in Gastonia, in the center of the state about 3 miles from SC. Everyone went to Myrtle Beach. We went to the Smokies. My husband served as one of the pastor's in a large Baptist hurch there. We miss them, but our grandbaby is in Louisiana, so we made the move last year Blessings to you.!!

Thanks for the welcome Rhonda. I have tried a couple of other "Christian " teams and they were more gossip than anything. Not good and not honoring God. I left those and kept looking. I agree with you, Smokies. I am sure God is in it this time. He can't work if we don't turn it over to Him. I also agree that the Smokies are beautiful! I remember a statement in Purpose Driven Life. Rick Warren said the trouble with a living sacrifice is that it keeps crawling off the alter.
Don't we tho'?
Have a blessed day, all, Herd
