Hello again everyone, I've been off of sp for awhile and I'm glad to see this team is still here. I remember it as welcoming, supportive, and encouraging - not only in weight loss - but in the Christian life. emoticon

Hi everyone!! I am happy to be here. I know the best support I could ever get here on spark people is prayer, and giving prayer. I am married, a mom, and recently quit working to stay home and homeschool my daughter. What a blessing to be able to do that! In June of 2010 I left the dark and for the first time ever found light. Since humbly accepting Jesus as my savior my life has changed forever. I wish I had not waited so long. A lot of dark years. But, I am now filled with so much joy and I am so thankful to be a daughter of the KING!! I look forward to getting to know you all better.

Hello everyone!

I have been with Sparkpeople since July. I recently found some Christian teams and have started joining them. I look forward to praying with others, and getting closer to God in my daily walk with Him.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone on the team.

Hi Rose emoticon I love your story so fascinating I love animals of all kinds we used to have parakeets and cocateils and they are so beautiful. You have been given such a wonderful gift from the Lord and I thank you for taking such good care of all your birds. Im excited for you and your journey and I know with the Lord you can do this. I myself have lost over 200lbs all to the Glory of the Lord I did not have the surgery its all been hard work and learning how to eat and when to eat. I am now a personal trainer which truly just blows my mind..I take no credit for it because if it wasnt for the Lord I would not have lost the weight and be where I am today. So I pray you have much success in your weight loss journey and if I can be assistance to you or any of you on the team please dont hesitate to write.

Many blessings to you

Jesus first

Hi there DEANIE, emoticon emoticon

It is emoticon that you joined us! You sound just like us here at the team! Be sure to post anytime you have a prayer request, we are more than delighted for the opportunity to pray with and/or for our friends! On Wednesday evening we are all encouraged to be praying UNITED at 9:00 pm...weather we pray here on the threads or just in spirit, either way is fine! My idea is just to have us UNITED in prayer, at the same time, so we can ROCK the HEAVENS with a sweet- sweet sound for our SAVIORS ears to hear!! We see lot's of answered prayers!

Enjoy the threads, some are FUN, some for chatting, venting, sharing anything you wish to share, some are for prayers, and we have the top few threads for our challenge..which is actually not a challenge, as much as a joint venture! No pressure, no competition, just loving support... from people who are also striving to be all they can be to HIS GLORY!!...I hope to see you around the threads, and at our morning HUDDLE!! Come by my page anytime to chat!! I would love that!

Hi, Deanie here. emoticon emoticon Thank you, Lacee, for the invitation to the team. I am a 50 something housewife who loves Jesus and believes like the old hymn, that it is a privilege to carry everything to him in prayer, knowing that he is the "author and finisher of faith" and he has started a "good work in us and will finish it". I look forward to praying with you and for you and being prayed for in return. emoticon emoticon

Welcome back, GEENEEREE. It seems that a lot of us have decided that we just don't need/feel like doing/want/ SP anymore, then we realize what we are missing. I have been there myself and came back again.
I am praying that God will guide you in your journey this time and just remember, that we are always here to love and support you and each other.

Praise God for this team of caring friends. emoticon

GEENEEREE,

I am so happy to have you back with us!! If you look at the right side of my page you will see the 8 Steps I came up with for our One step challenge! They are also posted here at the team under announcements! You are already doing Step # 1, pray as soon as we get up, and drink that first glass of water....check out the threads, you will find one to post emoticon on the days you do all 8 goals...One Step at a time we can get this done!

I know you coming back today was from GOD, for more reasons than one!! We can inspire one another, and we do have some new members who are One steppers!! I have dropped the ball, tho I am feeling a bit lighter in my spirit, (many issues to deal with lately...) long story...GOD will help us get back on the horse!!

Just start Steppin', take a big deep breath and dive in!!

Hi JAWS140,
You are at the right place if you like to pray! We are a small, friendly, praying bunch around here! Feel free to read all the threads and see what is available here. If you need help please ask!! I dropped 1/2 of my weight, and gained 1/2 of the amount I had dropped, back again! I know what you are saying! We can do it, and with GOD it is so much more pleasant!!

Hi LaceeJo! I just checked out your team and it looks wonderful! I am looking forward to saying good riddance to the Valentines Day candy, girl scout cookies and goodies in my home and the teacher's lounge and jumping on board to join you in on your step adventure. How fun and motivating to be able to share on your team! I'm looking forward to the Lord helping us on our quest to healthy living!

Hello Mary Ellen. Welcome to our team. I, as well as everyone else, am so glad that you are here. We are a God loving, worshiping, praising team. We are all very supportive to each other and want you to know that if you have any problems/questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

It sounds like you have the ideal home life. I will be 61 in May and am working part-time in our school system, and I have a jewelry business that is also part-time. My DH works full-time, so thankfully I don't have to.

We can't plan our garden get, as there is still too much snow, and it was a high of 16 today and now it's 6 and is going down below zero tonight.

Praise God for christian people!!! We are so blessed.

Welcome again,
Robin

Hi there Mary Ellen,
I am so happy that you joined us here at the team! Your place, and well, your life sound lovely to me!! It sounds as if you and I have discovered the same "Secret"...I live alone also..but am very much NOT alone at all! I have my two fur babies, (you can meet them in my photo gallery, Sonny & Cher)..and I am active! It took me quite a while to find a church where I felt I could be a survivor not a casualty...I am sure you will "get that...",,, Me and JESUS we got our own thing goin'...no disrespect intended!! I take everything to HIM in prayer, and I talk to HIM constantly! I have no family near by either. GOD is my FATHER, and I walk closely with HIM!!
I do, however, live in town, tho I make the best of it!! Your place sounds like a little piece of HEAVEN to me!!
I hope we see you around the threads here a lot! You are going to be such a blessing, I can already tell!!

Hi Everybody!

I'm new to the team but have been with SP since 2010. I'm 65 (66 this year) and I work pretty hard to stay very healthy. I live by myself on a 7-acre homestead where I practice self-reliance principles as much as I can. I want to need the gumbmint as little as possible. =)

I left the savage corporate world quietly and escaped to a beautiful piece of God's land 4 years ago. I pray I can continue in this lifestyle for a long time. I have pets and Christian radio, and I even get 4 TV stations with my rabbit ears antenna!

I work part-time via the internet using a satellite connection. I maintain all my telecommunications equipment myself and scrounge for answers when I have a problem. I learn best that way.

I have cats and 3 dogs that are so funny - they help keep my blood pressure down for sure!

I have a WONDERFUL family, but no one lives nearby so we stay in touch by phone & email.

I'm planning my spring garden now, deciding what to grow, and I'm growing some food indoors already.

I've been a Christian for about 40 years and I used to be very, very active in church. But I don't have a local church here. I wanted to join a local Pentecostal church but they said I had to wear a skirt and no makeup. But I don't have any skirts and I don't leave home without makeup =) So I may try the local Methodist or Baptist church. My country roads aren't good in the winter so I don't want to commit to any group on a regular basis out of concern for the days that it will be impossible for me to travel. ANYWAY, all I really have is JESUS. So I'm very happy to talk to Him for whatever concerns YOU, on Wednesday night or anyother!

May God richly bless YOU in all your goals and in your homes!

Mary Ellen

Hi, I'm Janet (JANETLP) and I have been on Sparkpeople since the end of June 2010. I have lost 60 lbs (I've gained about 3 of that back this week for some reason)!

I'm 57 (almost 58- the 10th of Feb.) and I've been married for 37 years. My husband is a pastor of a small Evangelical, Christian, Bible teaching Church for the last 10 years. We met when we both attended (neither of us graduated) Fort Wayne Bible college. I am a stay-at-home wife who watches 3 children for someone else, so they can work outside the home. I love the communication available to me through the internet and my computer. I like to read, play games (board and other), and watch TV. One of my favorite hobbies is cooking- trying new recipes. SP has allowed me to venture into more healthy cooking methods and learn better foods for my husband and I to enjoy.
We have 3 grown children (all girls) and 4 step-grandchildren. Both our parents are living- his are in their upper 80's mine are just turning 80 this year.

God Bless You all!
