I can feel God's hand and hear his voice in many areas of my life. One of the big things was getting me to Overeaters Anonymous it is based on the AA plan and spiritually driven but you decide what your higher power is luckily I have always had my faith and God so that was easy but it has helped me grow in my faith because it was not until OA that i thought about asking God for help with my weight and when i finally did i felt much better and better able to handle a lot of struggles much better.

I didn't think of this at the time, but I suppose it was the Spirit speaking to me when I decided to stop worrying so much about calories and just focus on eating foods in their most natural state. Thanks for your insight.

Oh, yes! He has been leading me on the path to a whole new me! He sent me to SP, and I am finally moving in the right direction. I kept going around the same mountain instead of through it. YOU ARE ALREADY BEAUTIFUL! We ALL are! We need to start seeing ourselves as God sees us... Through the eyes of His Spirit. By His Son's death and resurrection we are made perfect in His sight. What we think we become... so, if we begin to allow the Holy Spirit to start cleaning us inside, the outside will follow. As Christians, especially Catholics, we have an advantage over many Sparkers... we know the Truth, and it is setting us free... using SP to help us along. May you have a blessed journey! We are in this together, for the long haul. Peace be with you!
Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly! Nothing tastes as good as living with less pain feels!
Today I felt God coming to me telling me its time to clean up his temple...my body. I have this strong earge to eat what is natural. Things that he made to cleanse our body. Has anyone had that experience?
