I prayed for you George

My health is more important to me than that temptation.

If you want something bad enough, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

Jesus is the Way, The Truth, and the Life.

Please pray that God will give me the strength to continue on this journey and not detour off it again and settle for a life that holds me back from trully living.

I am a FROG. I pray for his help. I do notice that HE will send me a rowboat (Sparkspeople), but he expects me to use the Oars.

You are doing the right thing setting small goals, and building upon each success.

I am 80lbs over weight, have type 2 diabetes , high blood pressure, & high cholesterol . I want to serve my Lord in all areas of my life, I know the Lord will help me but I am weak in this area of my life. So I thought with prayer & friends who understand what I'm going through & with God that I can tackle this. So thank you for praying and I will be praying for you too. emoticon

Prayer is so powerful and knowing that others are praying too gives me great comfort and strength. I've got a lot of weight to lose. I've lost 22lbs of the 100 I want to get rid of for good. I'm taking it 28lbs at a time so soon will tick off the first marker!! Praying for you team. 🙏🙏

My God loves me, he shelters me from harm.

I just got the results of my wellness lab tests from my employer. My triglycerides, glucose, A1C are all elevated. I also have about 50 pounds to lose. I've found that this has been a true wake up call. I've been having nightmares at night since I got my results. I'm at the place where I have to do this. Prayer and focusing on Jesus is my strength. I'll keep all of you in my prayers.

Good morning to all and congratulations on what you have done. I have about 50 pounds to lose and am a diabetic so I have to take one day at a time but with God's help I can do this and be free of diabetes and extra weight. My prayers will go out to each of you.

BlueBrown2 - They key is to prep healthy food that you can grab quickly and to get rid of the unhealthy convenience food. Fresh fruit is always good. Make a chopped salad and keep it in an airtight container in the fridge. I cut up an entire package of boneless, skinless chicken breast into bite size pieces and put them in a zip lock baggie so they're always ready to cook. I cook them in a marinade so I don't use oil and they cook quickly because they're so small. Good luck to you as I know it is stressful.

Progress, not Perfection

There are powers inside of you which, if you could discover and use, would make of you everything you ever dreamed or imagined you could become.

Please pray for me. I should not have had to join this team. I joined SparkPeople in 2008 and reached my goal of 145 in 2009. I kept the weight off until 2011 when a dear friend passed away. Since then, I have let my emotions get me back into old eating habits and my exercise in none. I have not gained everything back but I'm back over 190. My prayer request is that I can get back to healthy eating and back on an exercise program and get off the couch.

Thank you all.

Prayers to all who have opened their doors to family and friends to live with them. Help them Lord, and give them all the tools needed to facilitate living together. Help them to have the courage to say the things that need to be said, without anger or resentment. Thank you for your bounty and graciousness.

Thanks, to all of you as this is encouraging to me. We live a highly stressful life as my son and daughter in law moved in with us. They have three children ages 2 and under. I am finding that I eat anything that is quick and easy to grab. I am working on turning this over to God. Each day is a new beginning and hopefully I will submit to Him and make good decisions. Prayers are welcome as I begin this walk.

Try not to stress about decorating for Christmas! I keep reminding myself. Christmas is in the heart! Enjoy other people's attempts at decorating. Go to Christmas programs. Sing carols. Listen to carols. Pray and thank God for sending us Jesus. I just finished my cards today and mailed them. I enjoy receiving cards too. I'll pray for you to get off the drug and over the drug's effects. You'll feel better soon. :)

I am having a really bad time getting off a 'mild' antidepressant. I weaned down as instructed by my doctor and it's been hell. So sick this past week I've not been out of the house and nothing is trimmed for Christmas. It's the first time I can remember not having my tree up by now. However the dizziness, spaciness, and profuse sweating is getting better. Please send up a prayer that this goes away and I can resume 'normal' life.

emoticon Prayer shifts your focus away from the problem to the One who can give you the answer, solution, or next step to take. Prayer takes your focus off yourself and your pain and confusion to the Father, who knows all controls all, has all power and is all loving.

When I realized that I was addicted to food, and turned it over to Him, the light came on. I stumble, but he has sent me the tools and information I need. He has sent the life boat, and the oars. I just need to use them.

He will do the same for you. It helps if you ask!

I pray that God sends us the answers to our prayers. To be able to live in harmony with His wishes and have a relationship with food that Glorifies him. Amen

It sounds like you are at least maintaining your number of pounds lost which is a win win situation This Time Of Year with so many temptations available to you. This will pass. Hang in there and stay strong until next month. I will pray for you.

My weight has been going down a pound -- up two -- down two - up one. I'm losing but it for the last month or two it seems so erratic. This week I can feel the enemy telling me to give up -- that I'm never going to get it off -- I've reached my limit.

I KNOW he is a liar -- and I pray every day for God to help me -- but please pray that I get my determination back.
Thanks
Bev

like many things I think going through the motions leaves the door open. Go to an inspiring church, spend time outdoors alone looking at the sky and water and trees, listen to a Christian music channel or Christmas songs this time of year.

God grant me the courage to change the things I can.

Glad to find this Prayer Chain ... I'm not exactly new to SparkPeople ... just have been gone a long time ... and now it's time to start again. Since the last time I was here, both my parents have passed. I've read your prayer requests and have agreed in my heart and spirit to continue daily to check in here to pray for each of you. Tonight I will be meeting with a Bible study group that is unique. We have a volunteer translator because more than half of those attending speak Spanish and the rest of us have very limited Spanish understanding. I request prayers for these families as they are searching the scriptures to see what God's Word says.

May God richly bless you

I am asking for prayers for myself. I am just getting over strep throat. I did sleep better last night and am hoping to sleep even better tonight. Today my cough is so much better than it has been, but I didn't go to church because I don't want to cough all over everyone. I am supposed to sub tomorrow so I am hoping I continue to feel better.

Prayer for the World Leaders meeting at the G20 conference in Turkey today and tomorrow. They were suppose to talk Economics & Trade -- but are discussing Terrorism. Pray for Godly Wisdom. France has declared war on ISIS and an official stated this could lead to World War III -- so we need to pray for the World until this is resolved. We TRUST in HIM and HIM alone!

Thanks for the message MAR6K1E5E I am just now seeing it. I have now lost almost 30 pounds I have 26 left to go.Thankfully I am out of the obese BMI category and in the over weight BMI. I pray every day for continued strength. I am looking at this as a healthy living change. I feel better, please continue to pray for me. I didn't think you were gloom and doom, smiles but I do need friends. I will check this board and continue to pray for those who have needs posted. This can be a difficult journey and we could all use the prayers and support of others.

Regards, Donna

Slim is where I wanted to be in 201 & 2011! Never happened, plateaued for a long time and gave up... got off track, but never left, so am back on track again!!! Make 2012 my year! So far, did finally lose 25 lbs. over the summer, but have found about 11 of it so far, it didn't hide g

Good for you. This is hard work and I'm not clear in my mind about whether I stick to this journey to reach my goals.
This is the plan and I'm going to work it. I'm not going to stop until I reach my goals or I'm not going to succeed. I don't want to gain it back. I'm positive that you didn't want to gain your weight back. I guarantee that you will get seriously sick carrying the weight with consequences of death from a heart attack, stroke or diabetes. I don't want to do that any more. Think that I'm above that.
I don't want to be your doom and gloom friend. I want to be a supportive friend.

I don't know what I would do if I didn't have God. He is my confidante and friend. I just keep adking for strength to resist what Satan puts in front of me. For a long time I blamed God for not helping me, but He always led me to where I needed to get the help, like Spark. He gave me free will to choose and sometimes I just don't want to do what's good for me and that is my choice, even though not a good one.

Hey I'm so glad to find believers in Christ! Prayer is so powerful and I would love for all to pray that the Lord gives me the will to lose 60 lbs and get my A1c down from 10. I am just now realizing that my body is God's temple and I have not taken good care of it. I pray that He will give me the power to get healthy so that I may serve Him with all my mind, heart and soul for as long as I am here on this earth! I will pray for all of you too!
