Gerry believe me I am in the same boat as you. what we both need is focus, I have just tracked my food intake from yesterday. surprisingly I didn't eat much but I did drink a lot of water. Also I walked about 3 miles or maybe more. However, as I am not doing anything regular like going for a quick run around the block regularly and stretching beforehand I can't
really tell whether my weight is going up or down. I know my fitness has improved. We are on holiday and the first part is coming to an end. I could kick myself for not going out on a daily brisk walk but tomorrow is another day and it's never too late. I hope you can join me on this mission to help each other battle the bulge. I've justread that a big midriff is the result of stress and that is me at present.

I'm praying that I have the strength to overcome my ego which tends to reach for food in times of stress. Also for faith in God that I find the discipline to eat sensibly and so lose weight. Also wishing the best for everyone else on here who are on a mission to improve their health by losing weight. Take care eeryone

I am new here but not to spark people.Ihave to get serious about losing weight. I wish everyone success and I know that what I need is determination and motivation. You would think that my health issues would be enough,

I can relate with my in-laws, both in their 80s, health issues and stubborn. My dh gets frustrated with them.

My foot is healing well from surgery. For a day or two I did too much and had to rest it a while, better now.

Thanks Chris. I hope your dad is doing better too.

Pop is so unbelievably stubborn. He won't leave the AC on, even though it will help him breathe. He keeps drinking Mt. Dew, and he's supposed to be on a no salt, no caffeine diet. He's very stubborn. I have given up trying to get him to do better, he's just not going to do it. He will do what he wants and that's that. We'll have to deal with the consequences.

I feel sorry for Mom though, having to put up with that. They are both in their early 80s.

I'd like to add my father to the prayer chain. He's currently dealing with CHF, a-fib and pneumonia. He's been in and out of the hospital a lot the past month.

Thank you.

Linda, good luck with your surgery. I will keep you in my prayers. I had major back surgery in December to avoid becoming paralyzed. The surgery was successful but I am just now able to do some physical activity. In the past I ran a lot (a couple of marathons, several 1/2 marathons and many many 5 & 10Ks), now I am doing good to walk for 30 minutes without paying for it dearly.

Not only am I having surgery for bunion on my left foot, but now I have gout in my right ankle. I am glad I had gout meds on hand. I could barely walk and now have hip pain in my left from favoring my right. Sheesh! It is all getting better. Next week is the surgery.

MarieYvonne, sorry about your pain problems and I will pray for you.

My Dad continues to be in the hospital and has good and bad moments. He is 94 and is having a tough time. I just hope they can ease up some of his suffering.

Hello all, hope everyone is doing good today or at least as good as possible at our age. I sympathize with all who are grieving over the lose of friends or loved ones I have been there and know that it is never easy. I also can feel the pain of those who are suffering through pain because I am right there with you,with the pain of arthritis and fybromyalgia. And I cannot get any relief from the pain in my neck and shoulders since my fall.

It seems as though everyone is doing good with the diets and that is something to be thankful for,each day without a fallback is a bonus.I did not lose last week but I didn't gain either.Well I will go now and login my food for today.

Have a good evening all and God Bless. and always remember that alone we can do little but together we can change the emoticon world.

Thank you for the prayers. I know God can do anything but fail. Turn the heavy stuff over to Him. He knows how to handle it better than we do. Cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you.(1 Peter 5:7)

Don't give up, keep looking upward and you will succeed.

I will have bunion surgery on June 3. I had bad gout in November and it took a long time to get in control. It made the bunion worse.
I am doing seated cardio workouts.

How blessed we are to Know God hears us, knows our needs and supplies them in His time. You mentioned part of one of my favorite verses, Phil. 4:13. That is a help in any situation.
I too will pray for you both. Have a blessed Mother's Day Sunday. A Spark friend, Betty

Hi Fordie7, Sorry to hear about your husband and I will pray for him. I'm glad you are still posting on SP. I am going through some heavy stuff myself and had taken a break for several days but I make sure I keep checking in even though I have put on a few pounds.
I know that if I give up I will definitely not succeed but if I keep trying I have hope.

Good luck to you
Chris

Good evening

Haven't been sparking for 8 months. Husband has been very sick and I didn't think about this site. I want to thank God for His awesome goodness and mercy toward us both. He has truly healed my husband of the larger problem. I continue to seek His healing for walking for my husband. I know God is a miracle worker and will do anything we ask for believing.

Thank you Father for I know I can do ALL things through you.

I wish to thank everyone for the compassionate prayers they said to the Lord asking for him to send me the strength and knowledge on how to deal or recover from my terrible headache, after 3 days it was really starting to pull me into a deep dark place, which I know is a very hard place for me to escape.

Thank You Again. May GOD walk with You & Your Families, Protect and Bless them each and everyday.

Thank you! Please keep my husband's brother and his family in prayer. I cannot, and will not, elaborate. It's a bad situation. My brother-in-law has made great spiritual strides, but is worried sick at the same time. My husband and his dad offered him support yesterday.

May GOD send his strength, love and healing graces into the souls, hearts, minds and bodies of every member of SparkPeople to help them reach both their physical goals but also gain mental strength and self-confidence in their ability to maintain their progress.

I ask this through Jesus Christ my Lord & Savor. Amen

Chris - Father I lift Chris up to in prayer today. She is overwhelmed with many things. I pray that You will show her how to rest in You. I pray that You will uplift her and encourage her today. I pray for favor for Chris as she tries to secure employment. I pray for Your provision to supply every need that she has. I pray You will give her direction and wisdom as she needs help in repairing her home. I pray that you will provide the time she needs to support her family. Be her help today in all things. May she see Your hand at work in her life. Amen.

Thank you for being brave enough to share with us, so that we might lift you up.

This is the day that the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad. To rejoice and be glad in the midst of difficult times means to walk by faith and not by sight. My prayer is that we all are able to walk by faith this happy Friday.

Prayers for all in need...I am a believer in the power of prayer. Life can be tough at time, even cruel. Only God know why we are given certain trial to pass thru, some big, some small. I try to put my trust in Him and know that He will bring me thru. And if there was a lesson to be learned from the trial hopefully I will have learned it. I hope and pray that you'll find the help you need and peace of mind.

Chris I Feel your dread - My Goodness! I like to think that God has a plan for all of us - a much better plan than we ourselves can even imagine. Try to have faith Dear Heart. With prayer and insight the answers will come to you soon.

I am desperately in need of prayers right now. I have been unemployed for 3 years now and very little income. The last time the temps were below zero my bathroom wall cracked all the way and a large area of plaster came down. Also, paneling at my bay window buckled up. I fixed all those myself but my kitchen sub flooring also buckled up - the whole floor - and I don't know how to fix it.
Today I got home from an emergency visit to my 93 year old Dad to find no water from the faucets, etc. Then I woke up from a nap to find the pipes had burst inside my mobile home and my bathroom and hallway were flooded and the emergency workers said that my recently installed insulation is now full of water.
I have no idea how I am going to get everything fixed and I need to visit my Dad a lot and call my brother who is mentally ill and having some major issues now.
All this plus job hunting!

Chris

I need prayer for my brother-in-law, Larry. He is on dialysis and his heart has been dying. His recent test results were not good. More of his heart has died. He's so sick. Thank you.

Adding all of your prayers to my prayer list. It is very cold here and I'm going out later and hope the car starts. It is about 5 degrees with a wind chill of 9 below. Please pray for my sister. She does nothing but drinks and I've tried everything I can to help her. Now I'm leaving it up to God. She gets her money and drinks it all away. I pray for her all the time and realize that is all I can do. This has been going on for years and she just doesn't learn. She tells me each month she won't drink but it is the same. Thanks.

emoticon Team! I am delighted to find a Prayer Chain forum on SP! I am so thankful for all my Sparkies and this site! I even added a blog this week about how I am praying for all of us on SP and all who are hurting! Hope you have a moment for a prayer request. My dear SIL, whom I love like a Sis, is battling cancer again after "2 years breast cancer-free" and this time there is cancer in her leg bones(femur) and other spots. I know prayer is powerful and that God is still in the Miracle business! If any of you can add a prayer for her to ours, I'd be so grateful. I put a picture of her and my brother and their 1st grandchild, born Oct.2014, on my Spark Page. We are NOT putting this on FB, preferring to keep it "quiet" at this early stage, but she needs prayers NOW...I know my Sparkies care about each other and pray for each other. Thanks so much. Love and prayers, Robyn emoticon emoticon

Jesus take my life and lead me on.

Have fun and no regrets. Make memories and love without fear. Enjoy life because in the end, the journey is the destination.

"At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us." -Albert Schweitzer

I will pray that all who need SP will find SP. I've mentioned it to a couple of loved ones. They seem disinterested, however, I think they will become interested once they see what it is doing for my total life, not just my weight.

Yes, I am feeling better. Thanks, so much.

I'm going to be headed to Kansas this weekend, weather permitting. I'm going to run away from the MN winter for a few weeks. I'm really looking forward to it. It will be nice to get out in the fresh air more.

I will have my computer with me, so I will stay connected.

Have a wonderful day.

I am just dropping by today and asking prayers for strength to change eating patterns. Thank you.

The Lord doesn't expect us to work harder than we are able. He doesn't (nor should we) compare our efforts to those of others. Our Heavenly Father asks only that we do the best we can - that we work according to to our full capacity, however great or however small that may be.

Valerie...I am new to Spark people. I haven't even figured out the trackers yet. I have not lost weight yet but I am changing some foods and routines. I do know how to be an encourager...and maybe we could encourage one another. I haven't added a photo yet...I access this at school and no internet at home...God bless...I will pray for your success as I pray for my own...How's that for starters? Meg

Me too. I spoke with 2 of my friends about SP yesterday. I prayed that they will take a look at SP. I know that if they did they would join up. They, like me, have struggled with our weight and because of being overweight have developed diabetes and high blood pressure. I will pray for all our friends who need SP but have not yet found us. Will you join me?

Aloha, Lisa

Oh, that's wonderful. I am praying today that I lose the weight. Will you please help me to lose weight. I wonder if you would be interested in becoming my weight loss buddy. First of all, my name is Valerie Klaassen. What's you name by the way? My email address is klaassenvl@aol.com. What is your email address? I really would love to meet you sometime in person. Would you like that? Take care.

Hello everyone. I won't be here at all tomorrow or maybe for a few days. I'm having shoulder surgery in the a.m. My hubby may post a status update for me to let you know how things go, but I won't be tracking any food intake or exercise after tonight. I'll need to let the anesthesia wear off for a few days, and I'll be on some pretty stiff painkillers too. Probably the physical therapy/rehab will be the most exercise I can take (along with basic daily tasks like taking a shower and getting dressed). I'll be having physical therapy/rehab for 3 x's per week for a few weeks. Prayers and positive thoughts appreciated.
