    Lord, please give Herbert the steadfast and stubborn will to beat his weight problem. Encourage him and strengthen him Lord, and reward his efforts I ask in the name of Jesus. Lord, you know his heart and you know the plans that you have for him. Watch over him and his health and give him the desires of his heart, help him to lose the weight and live a full and healthy life.

    Hang in there bud. You've prayed for me plenty, if there's anything else I can do.... lemme know.

    It's tough to ask for help, but humility is a trait that is rewarded. I have prayed for your needs, and will continue to. Know that you have a giant network of people supporting you -- so if you feel alone in this or too depressed, think about all the people who are thinking of you and your plight. You really can do it, and God will help. That usually helps me put a smile on my face -- especially when I feel the deck has been stacked against me. Keep looking toward the light.

    Hey Brother, prayer sent. Remember, ALL things are possible through Christ. Not just some things, all. Good luck and remember it always takes lifestyle changes to make things like your ordeal work.

    My prayers go out to you in your time of need Bro. I too have been battling a weight issue my whole life and also diabetes. Just remember Jesus is the same yesterday,today and forever he healed then and he can heal now if we ask in Jesus name and it will be done. He may not answer when we want it but he's never late. Hang in there.

    Hey Herb.....YOU CAN DO IT BROTHER, I know you can! Just think about how much better you're going to feel when you're at a healthy weight. Plus, we want you to be around for many years to come - for your immediate family, but also because you're a big part of our family here on the BOC. You know that you have my positive thoughts and prayers coming KY way. Hang in there, and don't forget your signature line :smile2:.
