I would start by asking my Dr. what they suggest. I like to walk-was doing really well with that, but of course now it is winter and I must move indoors a bit. Will be using my treadmill-I will have to take it easy as well, but I will be doing something(besides shoveling snow, that is! LOL)

I feel honored to have found this group I became a Christian in 1981 but did really follow through with it. I recommitted myself to my Christian faith in 2006 and try and be as good as I can be, for a sinner that is. I have 80 pounds to lose for my health and for myself. As much as I hate to admit it I am also thinking of divorcing my husband of 25 years and moving closer to where my son and his wonderful wife lives. I have a cardiac problem and need some ideas for exercising. Increasing my heart rate is not good as it cause me great pain; but I am open to any ideas and suggestions anyone can provide. Hopefully I can find a lot of people here who can encourage me and I can encourage them so we can all meet our goals.

emoticon and welcome to our team. I've just posted on your page but didn't realise you'd already posted here! well done!
I think we all found SparkPeople with the same aim...to lose some pounds. Personally I've been to goal weight twice and gained it back again...not good. I joined a local class and am back where I should be now! PTL.
You've lost your pounds too and of course you will do it again. Never give up and as Cheri said, come across to www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes

emoticon to our group!! I wish you much success in your goals! This is a great group and we listen to each other and pray for each other.....I am sure you will be as blessed by this team as I am.

Stop by the BackFence ( I think we are on 35 now!! Wow) and chat and tell us your prayer needs or just talk!!

I am 60 and have struggled this last couple of years with health issues. I had a lot of success and then had to stop exercising because of surgeries/illnesses...hoping we both have success this year!!

Hello everyone, I am a newbie and am very happy to have found a christian team. I just got started on here yesterday. I currently weigh 205 and my goal is 160. I am 54 years young, and have been married for 32 years to a wonderful man who has been through all of life's ups and downs with me. Thank goodness he did not run with hands flailing in the air, although there were times I am sure he wanted to. About 15 years ago I weighed 285 lbs. I had gastric by-pass and lost down to 150. I have since gained back to 205 and do not want to get any higher. So glad there is SparkPeople to help me through this. I had thought about joining Weight Watchers, but could not afford it since my husband is retired and I work solely for the insurance... So praying this is the place I need to be. Looking forward to meeting you ladies and getting to know you all. And as you can tell, I like to run my mouth. Have a great and successful day.

Hello everyone! My name is Sherri. I'm looking forward losing the 6 pounds I gained this year. I know it's not a lot but I did lose 30 pound in 2012. 6 is better than 30!!! I will be 52 this coming January 5th.

Lucky you! I love Pine Junction, though I've only been there a few times. I have a jumbo tall coffee mug with a square-rigged ship on it (love nauticalia) that I bought in a shop there many years ago.

Welcome Irene! I think there is something like "Sit and be Fit" that are chair exercises as well. Just do what you can until you are healed........I had surgeries on my toes at the end of the year last year and was surprised how long it took me to be able to be fully active! You will get there as I did! Just keep at it and don't quit!

I believe there exist exercises for the upper body, for those with mobility problems... but I don't know how to find them.

I remember reading somewhere that Susan Powter continued teaching aerobics while recovering from fracturing both ankles in a fall, so there may be a way to find out what exercises she was doing during that period.

Hi. Just found this group and happy to be a part of it. I have atleast 50 lbs to lose. Just like a few others, I have gained quite a bit of weight since my hysterectomy 6 years ago. I also have a low thyroid- a double whammy! To add to this- I fell last week at work and have a sprained and fractured ankle so I am in a wheelchair. I don't want to add anymore weight since I cannot do any form of exercise at this point. I am staying positive but I do need prayers for healing.

Hi, everyone. I'm 52 and have been a Christian since I was saved in 1979 at CU-Boulder. I was really thin (naturally, not because I was trying to be) until after I turned 40 and got married in the same year. Gradually, since then, my weight has just kept creeping upward and increasing until I'm really unhappy with where I am right now, 40 pounds heavier than I was in 2001. My goal is to split the difference and end up at 135.

What's hard for me is that my whole life I never had to care or think about what I was eating, and I just ate whatever I felt like and whatever was lying around-- but I can't get away with that anymore. Sometimes I just want to go back to being 30-something and not having to worry about it... but I can't. It's a whole paradigm shift in the way I think about food and what I eat.

So happy I found this Team Page! I am looking forward to loosing this weight and as I do, being able to encourage others and being encouraged by others. I have a lot of weight to loose as I am considered obese. I have struggled in the past with thyroid issues but now have them at the normal level so praying this will help with the weight loss. I also have arthritis so some days are harder to exercise then others but I will just keep on keeping on.

I believe that God has a path for each and everyone of us and He will direct our steps each and every moment.
