I just recently started here at SparkPeople, at the recommendation of a friend of mine. I have tried various programs and things in an attempt to lose the weight that I have gained over 3 pregnancies. All of them have failed. I know that I need to lose weight because I want to be healthy for my family and I want to set a positive example for our 3 wonderful kids. But most of all, I want to take much better care of this body that God gave me. I know that on my own, I will never have permanent success, in weight loss or any other aspect of life. I have spent a lot of time and money trying numerous programs and products that promise weight loss results with little or no effort. This is not truth. The truth is that my overeating is a serious problem that I cannot get rid of by myself. There is nothing that I can do that will free me from bondage to food. The good news is that there is a permanent solution to my problem, and the best part is that it's free! That's right, free! The name of that solution is Jesus Christ, and through him and by his power, I can do all things.
