Prayer to lose weight

by Michele
(Brooklyn, NY)

I have been struggling to lose weight for a long time. For medical reasons I have to lose weight. I am considered obese and must lose 85lbs. I am constantly struggling. My crutch is food and I'm trying but seem to be gaining weight instead of losing. I get all upset because I know this is not me. I don't feel good about myself and it shows. I am losing my hair, my clothes don't fit and I feel worthless. I need a miracle in my life that will improve my self esteem and show me that I will be a success. I am currently 215lbs. I would love to get back to being a size 4. Please pray for me. God bless and thank you.

Mind Set
by: Anonymous

First go with your mind set, saying over and over I will do this throught the power of Jesus Christ.
I know, I am over weight also. 5'2" and at this time 193. I have lost 7 pounds. My problem is I can get little exercise because I had surgery and it left me with a foot drop, numbness, and pain. I am on crutches and won't be getting off. So, I have to eat a lot less. For those who can exercise, please do! Any kind of exercise is exercise. Walk, take the stairs to one floor or more, walk to the mail box, take your kids/grandkids to the park and play with them. And of course don't let food control you; YOU need to control food! Amen? Amen!
First start out NO sugar. Sugar is killing us slowly or maybe fast and we do or don't know it. Get your sugar natual from fruits. Stay away from regular and diet drinks. Just because it's diet don't make it better for you.
That's a little of my advice but I have more just can't write it all. Let's ALL Pray for each other and say WE CAN DO THIS!.
I pray for each person who has wrote in and posted a comment. He or She gets the strength through you Jesus to control food and get back healthy. You know our strenghts and weakness's. Your are our Lord and Savior and We Need You. We can not do this alone. In Jesus Holy Name Amen!

trust in the Lord
by: Anonymous

Continúe to have faith and trust in the Lord! He has never failed or turned his back in me. I do not deserve any of the miracles I recieve. At 258 lbs I was desperate for help I now weigh 147. I changed nothing really, I went to the doctor and started treatment for other health issues. Most of all I prayed all the time. Tht weight fell off literally. Trust in the Lord, he hears your prayer even when you can not find the words.

I have walked down this path
by: Lace

I have walked down this path, and I know it hurts to look in the mirror, to try on clothing, and to think about special occasions (weddings, formal events, etc.) because the weight not only brings you down physically, it brings you down mentally.
I was a long hard path for me. It took a few years for me to get sick of it and DO something about it. I went to a professional weight loss center and spent money on their program. After the center closed on our area, I kept up with everything on my own. At my largest, I was 230+ pounds. I am now 139, THANK THE LORD!

My success hasn’t come easily. I was at 139 when I got married and then became pregnant. I hit 199 when pregnant, and then came back to 170 during the first year after she was born. I had to take it off again. I am not where I would like to be, but God will help me get there. I pray often to Him for strength and guidance. I think I am a better person for having gone through this. I don’t take my success for granted, nor do I judge those who are still facing weight concerns and problems.

I kept journals daily keeping track of calories, I drank 64 to 80 ounces of water a day, and exercised. The basics are simple: “Calories In” versus “Calories Burned”. (TIP: Never go below 1000 to 1200 “calories in” per day to try to achieve “faster weight loss”, as it will slow your metabolism and make weight loss harder to achieve in the long run.)

I set small goals of five to ten pounds to achieve. Once achieved, I would set another. Looking at the total goal is fine to know where you want to go, but then focus on the small steps! That big number is intimidating. That smaller number, you can handle.

It is hard to do when you first start out, but YOU ARE WORTH IT. God loves you and wants you to succeed. This is a trail of strength and determination.

Dear Lord,
Please be with everyone who is reading this and give them the strength of purpose they need to commit to taking off the weight that holds them down and holds them back from enjoying life. Help them every day, as it is a journey of time and determination. Help them to have the patience to take it one day at a time, and the determination to not give up on themselves.

Gracious God, help them to feel Your love in them and may it be a flame igniting their hearts and minds when they need it most on any hard and/or long days on the way to their success. Let them see how You have made them unique and beautiful each in their own way. May they realize the talents You have given them, and give them the courage to use their gifts and talents in their lives. Show them they are worth the time, the work they need to put into themselves and their weight loss goals.

Praise to You always God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit for all that You do and all that You give us every day. In Jesus’s name we pray.

Amen

My God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, I come to you in the name of my Savior Jesus' name. I ask you to touch each and every person who is over weight and have eating disorders. I pray you will ease the stress. We cast our cares upon you as you say in your word. You are our answer. Jesus, Holy Spirit intercede for us. Lord God for each person who reads this, bless them! Bless them!

I really believe God, Jesus and Holy Spirit love you! My life is hell right now. So I know what it is like to have your butt kicked by life!! I am 5 feet tall and I weigh 257 pounds. I am obese. I am ashamed. Love to you all!

I am in good company
by: I'm ready to be slender now!

We who struggle with weight are a wonderful group of people! We are in good company! I've just prayed for all of us to have a touch from the Lord so that each of us learns what we uniquely need to do in order to lose the excess weight. I know of four things for me to do. It's hard to do them consistently because of scheduling and being busy. Plese pray that I stop overscheduling myself, say 'no' to unneeded activities, sleep more each night, and balance needed activities with needed rest.

Weight Problems
by: Anonymous

I myself, like these individuals, has struggled with being obesed. I am currently at 201 pounds and need to lose at least 65 pounds. The reason to lose weight, is due to my medical issues with blood pressure and God only knows what else. I need prayers to lose the weight so I may continue with my journey with the Lord, to be strong, healthy, and be able to stay focus spiritually. I know God does not want me to be where I am at, because according to His word, our body is a temple in which needs to be taken care. Please keep me in yalls prayers, and may God bless each and one of you.
