Hi Everyone,

Day 15 of SP. Learning more about the team each day. My DH and I are doing fine. Got out for a sort walk today. The Lord gave us a cool and breezy day. The leaves were rustling and the turkeys were calling each other in the woods. Pretty soon it will be Autumn and the leaves will change color and then fall. Pumpkins will be carved. Air will get cold. Then will be winter.

Just stopping by to let you know all is well at our house and praying it is so at yours

We are having a heat wave here - go out for about 10 minutes then have to return back inside as it is to hot to stay out very long

We are 1/2 way through the month of August 2016 - now to buckle down and work my plan so that August can show progress

Have a great day everyone

Hi Marilyn,

I am glad that your daughters echocardiagram was normal and that she will get better with exercise. I am glad that walking will work for both of you. You can help each other and even have some fun in the walks.

I am sending you my deepest sympathy for the death of your grandson. God will lessen your pain over time and your grandson will always be in your heart. I miss a young one also.

Good for you sticking to your plan with everything you have been through. You are stronger than you think.

Jeremiah 29:11-13. Thsee verses sustain me through many trials.

God bless and keep you tonight and til we meet here again.

Yes it has been somewhat difficult but we know that God is in control

Got the results back re my daughters echo cardiogram - good news - all looks good. He says that with the heart ok we are seeing that she is reacting to being unfit. Stair climbing leaves her completetly breathless and she has a hard time to realize that it will return to normal.

So with proper nutrition and exercise - starting with walking min of 3 times a week for 40 minutes each time will help.

This has help me also as I need to make the same changes.

I must say it is difficult but we are leaning on the Lord to give us the extra strength to do what we need to do every day.

Death of our 15 month old grandson has been hard - especially on 'mom' - but again we know that the Lord is upholding 'mom' and that with time it will get easier - but the pain will always be there.

Am working my plan for August and so far so good - need to step it up some though in order to make weight goals for the month

Greetings ladies - praying you are all well.

I have had a few health issues and my daughter (27 years old and has Down Syndrome) is having heart problems so waiting to hear back about her echo cardio test. Also our 15 month old grandson passed away end of June so that has been difficult.

At any rate I am hear - praying that we can get us up and moving again as it has been a bit quiet in here

I am making progress -at least it says so from my weight chart for the year - I record my weight the 1st of every month - so it helps to reflect on that when I don't think I am doing any thing productive

Take care ladies - and praying that more will start posting here again

Marilyn I am sorry to hear that . My prayers are with you at this time. Please pray for Mike who is the senior van driver for the Elderly Services. He has been diagnosed with COPD and emphysema. He is not a Christian either so he needs prayer for salvation as well. Pray for me that God will bless us financially as things are really hard right now.

Time I checked in - sorry for not being around but life has been difficult the last 6 months

Our 15 month old grandson went home to be with the Lord last Thursday. He had a rare form of brain cancer and his little body just could not take it any longer. Please pray for peace for his mom and dad (both in their 20's) as well as his 9 year old sister.

I am no back on track and looking forward to having 2016 end up on the positive side

Hope everyone is doing well. My tests went well today. I found out Sunday that I was not even interviewed for a job that came up----that I was told last summer; they wish they had a job opening for me. Very disappointing But my Bible study this week is on Beauty for ashes from Isaiah and I am looking forward to what the Lord is going to do. Trusting Him with His plan for my life. I also have asked about being the school librarian at the same place. I am not really expecting to be offered it after not being asked to teach. Thankful for my wonderful children and the Lord's blessings to us. 7 grandchildren and good health.
I would appreciate your prayers so my emotions don't derail me and that I will keep my eyes on Jesus.

I am having an every 10 year endoscopy and colonoscopy on Wed so I start a low fiber diet.....it sounds so weird to me no fresh fruits or vegetables. I don't think I eat that healthy until I looked at the things I wasn't suppose to eat Sunday or Monday. Tuesday will be all liquid and the test Wednesday...Hope to lose a few pounds because of less calories for 3 days...

Marilyn,

How are you doing with the not drinking soda? My big downfall is the drive thru. Granted, I do not exactly have a kitchen to cook in, so it's mainly TV dinners that I've been eating. But, that will be changing in about 3 weeks, when we close on our new house!!! I took my parents and grandma by the house yesterday. They loved it!! It's a 3 bedroom 2 story house. It has two bathrooms. I can't wait to move!! I'm so excited to be out of this trailer!!!!!

Just checking in. Am doing good - making progress in all areas of my life which is good

Reading the Bible through in a year - have not made this a priority in the past but have decided that from now on I will continue to do this each year as I have found when I do I see things new each time.

Am making progress with my walking - have purchased a fitbit and am loving it - it is keeping me motivated to get up and move more - love hitting those goals

Had to get a new computer on the weekend - a hacker got in and did a number on ours - so we ended up getting a laptop rather than the tower - and the laptop has Windows 10 so it is like learning the computer all over again. But it is getting somewhat easier each day.

April 1 I am giving up pop due to the sugar level in it. I had given it up on January 1 2011 and did not drink any until November 15 2015 when I had a glass of ginger ale - and that did me in - as the doctor told me pop is your drug of choice - and I must say this time round it seems harder to give it up - tried at the beginning of March but the withdrawals were terrible so had more ginger ale - but April is the month I am going to persist and get through the withdrawals. Sugar is my downfall - but I have been able to give up things like cookies /cakes / pies but the pop has been calling my name.

At any rate it will be interesting what April will bring with me increasing my walking and giving up sugar - I am praying for a nice loss in April. I have had a loss for January, February and March is going to show a loss also. So it will be nice if April can be the one to show the best results

My scripture verses for today are

Deuteronomy 8:11 which says
Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day .

Deuteronomy 10:12-13 says
And now, O Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to observe the Lord's commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good

Have a good day everyone

Hope your friend is doing well. I will pray for the children, A friend of mine once told me the Lord knows what your children need right where they are and is more concerned for them then we are.... I need to remember that
Glad your fitbit is working well.
I put some prayer requests up but it didn't look like anyone noticed.
Please pray that the Lord will work in our adult children's lives and of course in mine that they will see Jesus in me and that our grandchildren will know we love the Lord and we will share Him with them!

Just checking in - praying you are all doing well.

A good friend of ours from our church is in hospice - she is now on oxygen and don't think she will be with us much longer. Please pray for her hubby and her 2 children. Her children are both in their 50's and are not believers and this is making it hard for our friend to let go as she really wants to know that they will be with here one day


I have just purchased a fitbit and love it. It took 2 days to get it set up and working right but I sure like it. You can link it to sparkpeople which is great.

I am reading through the Bible this year and enjoying doing that again. That was one of the goals for this year

Another goal is to be honest with myself about working a healthy eating plan and to make progress every month - and so far so good. Since January 1 2016 I have lost 15 pounds - know that is not much but I am being consistent every week with a loss and that is what counts. Even just 1 pound a week wlll make me 52 pounds light in 12 months.

I have to look up on fitbit as it told me how much less in calories to eat to lose the 1 pound a week. Will get back to you on that

Praying all is well with all of you

Hope to see more posting here from all of you

My guys are on a Scout Camp Out this weekend. And 2 of them are doing Wilderness Survival so will be in the woods & have to make their own shelter. And we have been getting a lot of rain in the area. North Louisiana is flooded.
I'm sure they will be exhausted when they get home tomorrow
I hit the gym this morning (2 hours) and now sitting at Starbucks enjoying a coffee. (I just do brewed coffee)
Have a safe weekend

I do a daily devotional through an app on my phone (you version) & I wanted to share this prayer with you guys:
Heavenly Father, we thank you for your Son who makes clean everything he touches. By his grace may our hearts and our actions be touched by him this day and everyday. In Christ’s Name, Amen.

Its so quiet in here - hope you are all doing well.

Today is the end of the 1st week of March 2016 = has it been a good week for you.

I lost 2 pounds this week making my total loss of 14 pounds from January 1 2016. I am please with the progress.

Now to work on the next 7 days - goal is to lose again when I weigh in on March 14 = goal is to be down another 2 pounds.

Also working on reading the Bible through this year - so far so good - and am enjoying doing this. Every time I do this I find things I have never thought about before - strange - I am going to be setting a goal that for the next 3 years I will read the Bible through 3 x as I would like to get into a habit of doing this each year but by the time I hit 70 I would like to have done it at least 3 years in a row.

Working on moving more - difficult but working on it and making some progress

I also have another group I have just started called
Taking it one month at a time.
If any of you are interested in joining me there come to my sparkpage to get to it . Would like to have company on this monthly journey.

Philippians 1:9-11 says
And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ - to the glory and praise of God.

Good morning ladies - hope you are all having a great day and that you are off to a great start for March.

I am feeling good about my progress so far this year, Here is what I have accomplished with regards to health issues

1) January 1 2016 weighed in at 300 pounds. March 1 weighed in at 288 pounds - down 12 pounds which is good

2) Walking has not been as good but March is going to be the month that changes that

3) Health issues seem to be behaving themselves - had blood work down 2 weeks ago - doc only calls to come in for results if the change is negative - no call so all is well there

So am generally feeling so much better - and spring is around the corner - weather is so much nicer now - looking forward to not having to wear a coat or heavy sweater when outside


Here is a Scripture verse for today

Philippians 1:9-11 says
And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes from Jesus Christ - to the glory and praise of God.

my calf has been hurting so much.… not properly stretching after cardio. I am doing a 30 day shoulder challenge and have been cutting down on my stretching since it's a progressive challenge. One of the exercises can be easily done in my office while working so I started doing that one at work to give myself the proper stretch time.

hello All; I hope everyone had a nice weekend

I made my daily step goal on Saturday and again today. I was ending 500 short for the day and well, I just couldn't accept that. So I go outside for a quick walk to get to goal. I bet I looked funny walking around my driveway in the dark.

Just checking in - you will see my username has change - age changed today therefore the new number.

Am doing well, doing my best to stay on plan and working it one week at a time. So far success - looks like the scale will be down again on Sunday - makes me happy when I see that - I am wanting to have 2 months in a row where the scale has gone down - and so far it looks like this is going to happen

Have a great day everyone

God is good. He wants us to succeed' I have quit drinking Diet Coke but miss caffeine now quitting coffee I have been having tea instead which is much lower and caffeine then going to water on Fri for 21 days. Sugar is a bigger battle and today I am giving it up until O hit my goal

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me all ye that are heavy laden and I will give you rest unto your soul.

I am doing fine - everyday is a new day with regard to eliminating sugar as it is in everything even in our fresh veggs. I am learning what veggs affect me due to the sugar in them as well as the fresh fruit.

Biggest thing to control though has been the chocolate and pop - the chocolate has not been to much of a problem now for 2 weeks - I asked hubby just not to get me any when I asked so he just ignores me when I say I would like a chocolate but pop has been a corker . I gave it up January 2011 and did not have any untill middle of November 2015 when I had 1 glass and that did it -I was hooked again = so last week I was craving it bad mentioned to hubby that I wanted some but asked him to turn a deaf ear as I knew it was temptation called sugar that was calling my name and I needed to refrain from it. I asked last night if he would go get me a small can of ginger ale to settle my stomach - he just got up and went to the computer room and ignored me - I am so thankful he did as I need to get over this wanting it - have to train my mind to turn to Scripture when I think of pop

At any rate all is ok - January has been a good month - met all my goal plus. On the 31st of January I will post what I have accomplished for the month - taking it one month at a time is working so well for me

Welcome all new members - we are glad you have joined us

I am having a successful month and am praising the Lord for the results I see

So far this month
1) I have lost 8.5 pounds this month so far which was my goal for the whole month so am going to see if I can get a few more off by the 31st
2) My intentional exercise - walking - has improved a lot - am now able to get in 10 minutes a day and am only 19 minutes from making my monthly goal in this area
3) I have lost 1 1/2 inches off my waist

I am going to continue working on this and look forward to having more success by the end of January.

Please pray re the giving up sugar as it is a big problem for me - I have been having a hard time getting rid of pop - I did not have any for 4 1/2 years and then had a glass and got hooked - so yesterday was my last one and am starting today to be off it again - the detox is terrible. They say that when a person who is obese usually is addicted to sugar whether they admit it or not - and being addicted to sugar is equal to being addicted to herion or cocaine - how did I ever get to this place?

At any rate will push through the detox - the headaches are horrible but I am leaning on the Lord to get me through this

Bless you all - have a great day

Praying all is well at your house

Spent 5 yours last night at the emergency due to chest pains. Lots of tests done and then was told my heart seems ok but that I was more than likely having a bad case of acid reflex which resulted in very bad gas that would not move. It is better today just praying that I don't have another episode like last night. Doc suggested to have another stress test on my heart so waiting for that to be set up

Looking forward to seeing more activity here - I know we can do it

CHERRIET - I can't get the photo to enlarge enough for me to read what it says on the mug. I'm liking the colours and animal drawings, though! What does it say?

Edited to add: Woops! I'm not sure how the thread and comment system works in here. I meant to put that post as a reply to the picture of the animals on a coffee mug picture, but it's showing up at the top of the thread, at least on my end.

Hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see."
Faith is visualizing the future in advance. It is seeing the future in the present. You look in the mirror and believe that, with God's help, you'll get healthy even though the person staring back at you is exhausted, stressed, out of shape, or overweight.

Good morning team mates

Praying you are all doing well.

I am on day 2 of a 10 day detox with The Daniel Plan. And so far so good. Believe I am going to get this health issue under control this time around

Looking forward to reading some posts here

I have been missing in action and I am so sorry for that. But it has been a difficult 18 months - things are starting to look better now though

I am planning on coming back on sparks daily because in the past when I have done so I have done so much better - having the encouragement of others is so important

Have a blessed day everyone

I haven't been here in a very long while, either (2 years). Lost all the weight, but then fell into some health issues and bad habits. So glad to be back and get on track again. Instead of following a "plan" this time, I'm going to take it slowly. My family has already started making some positive dietary changes and have picked up the workouts again. Already feeling healthier, even though scale doesn't show it yet...thank you, Lord!

Marilyn, glad things are looking better medically for you! I have been out of the loop for a long time myself....just really let myself go physically. I think it all started 3 years ago when my brother died from cancer. He was here at my house and we had so many people here and soooo much food and I am a stress eater so I grazed constantly. Then I just didn't get control again until recently. In April this year as I thought about how I was wearing the EXACT same things every Sunday to church because nothing else in my closet fit, I said "IT'S TIME!". I have lost 15 lbs since then and am being very active walking at least 5 days a week and sometimes 7, eating healthy and loving it! I feel so much better already!!
