Just ended my third day of tracking food on Sparks. I am finding that it is making me stay on track better as I see the nutrients broken down. Also, I have made blogs each day so far to journal my commitment to Christ for his strength one day at a time. The one day thing is really helping me to be more patient. As time goes by I hope I will stay as strong as I am right now. I cherish any prayers out there; as I am sure this whole teams feels likewise.

Great, Trina! I have used Leslie's DVD's for years. I don't do them all the time right now as I'm walking more outside, but I try to incorporate them with my regular walking routine periodically.

Enjoy the smoothies!

Thanks for your comments, ANGELREJOICES54 and IZONPRIZE! I have tried juicing before but was disappointed when I had to throw away the pulp so now I make green smoothies for breakfast and use the whole fruit and greens. Here's my latest:

1 cup unsweetened almond milk
7-8 ice cubes
1 frozen banana
1 scoop GNC 100% whey protein Cookies and Cream flavor
1 T. ground flaxseed
1 T. chia seeds
2-3 cups fresh spinach

I blend that in my Ninja blender until smooth and drink! I've noticed more energy since I've started drinking green smoothies for breakfast.

IZONPRIZE, God will show us what to do to help us receive His healing power if we will listen and obey! You have done that! Congratulations! I'm happy to hear how God brought that information to you through a word of knowledge!

Congratulations, ANGELREJOICES54 on your juicing! Each one of us has to find what works for us!

Hi emoticon I am new to the team. I need this support!
3-5 times a week I have this:

LEEANNA'S JEHOVAH RAPHA SMOOTHIE
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup ice
I scoop Dynamic Greens (Strawberry-Kiwi flavor)
2 big handful baby spinach
1 scoop Jay Robb Egg White Protein Shake Mix
1/2 cup frozen fruit (pineapple, banana, berries, etc)
Adding a little water at a time till smooth.

The dynamic greens has cured the neuropathy I was having in my legs (it is hereditary--my dad has been cripple for years)! Praise God--I got a word of knowledge at a prayer meeting to eat lots and lots of greens--ESP spinach and God would heal me. He has!! Pain free legs since I started this over three months ago. (My dad NEVER ate green anything!) I hope this helps someone else as much as it has me. God bless you all.

I like the banana best, I think, Trina! It really helps to soften the flavor of the greens. And spinach is my favorite green to use, but at times I add swiss chard and other greens as well. One of the ladies on the green smoothie team told me to alternate the greens because you get different nutrients from each one and your body gets used to them so if you alternate you're always putting something different into your body. But my energy level has really soared since I started drinking green smoothies!

Praise the Lord! I'm glad you are moving away from emotional eating! That's a victory, Trina!

IAM_HIS, I knew this was coming with rationing out health care according to age and probably disease. That is just terrible and where health care is headed. Praise God there are a few still out there. Relying on the Lord is always best for protection and direction.

Avanell, I drink some of the same green smoothies! Almost exact ingredients except the frozen banana. I will have to try a frozen banana from time to time.

Praise God, I am moving away from emotional eating! Sometimes I overeat, but that is from my big appetite! Not exactly from me seeking comfort. I am really trying to go to the Lord for comfort instead of getting it in other things.

God knows exactly where you are, Sharon, and what care you need. He is the great Physician, the Lord our Healer. Reach out to Him and receive the life that He gives through Christ Jesus. He took stripes upon His back that you might have healing in your body. Believe His promises and receive them. They are for you!

Father, right now I lift Sharon up to You and ask that You would rest Your healing hand upon her. Father, You made her and You know what needs to be done to correct the imbalances in her body. Give her wisdom to know what to eat and drink that would be beneficial to her overall health. Create within her the insight and direction that she needs to overcome the challenges that she is facing. Father, there are those in your word that crossed over from this life to the next without illnesses being the cause. Father, may Sharon live out her life to the fullest and experience your salvation as You have promised for those who dwell in the secret place of the Most High God and trust in You. You have promised that You would give them long life and show them Your salvation. May Sharon experience this promise in her life today! I declare Your word over her that she shall not die but she shall live to declare Your works in her life! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

I am praying for guidance from the Holy Spirit to give me the knowledge I need to improve my health issues.

Yesterday I went to my MS specialist. I was told that if I were younger she would help me more but because of my age (a baby bloomer) she would not do anything but would watch me and help me when I got worse. I asked her what worse meant; I did not get a definite answer of what "worse" was. That triggered me to say, "This is a good way to handle the large population of baby bloomer. You did not refuse me help, yet, you did. This makes me wonder how much quality care I will be given in the future. Right now, it appears your age determines the quality of care you will be given." The doctor never said, "this is not true", or "did not think this way". Instead she just looked down and changed the subject.

So now I am going to the Divine Physician. I final have come to the conclusion that our Lord is protecting me. This physician also told me that I had a blood clot in my leg because my ankles and feet were so swollen. Well, I have been in the medical field for a lot of years, plus two of my family members are doctors, I know that both feet and ankle do not swell from a blood clot. I also knew that it is a circulatory problem--my feet and leg were ice cold. I refused to go for a Doppler (a way to find a blood clot) that she wanted me to have--it would cost me a $150.00 co-pay and was not warranted. I went to my primary doctor who agreed with what I thought and said.

I am going back to my primary doctor today. What a difference in him--he is a Roman Catholic Christian, respects life and does not determine the quality of your care by what age you are. Plus he is the best doctor in the area of the USA where we live. He always give me quality care and has compassion for his patients. You are not a number, you are a person to him.

I've had such struggles with emotional eating but more recently, I am actively LISTENING for the Lord's guidance, and I'm taking it step by step, meal by meal, exercise time by time, every day, following His leading, and that is working GREAT! As I listen for His direction, I'm making better food choices and sticking to my exercise!

I am infusing my water with fruits. This morning I crushed a strawberry and put it in my water. No artificial flavors or sweeteners, just water with a little fruit flavoring! Yum!

I also start my day with green smoothies. I use 3/4 c of unsweetened almond milk, 3/4 scoop of GNC chocolate 100% whey, a frozen banana, 1 T. ground flax seed, 2 cups fresh spinach and 7 ice cubes. I blend that together in a Ninja blender that liquifies and produces a large enough smoothie for both myself and my husband. I feel so much better when I have one of these for my breakfast!

What are you doing that could be helpful to others on the team?
