Please don't give up hope, you who have eating disorders. I've been there, lost 125 lbs and gained 55 back so far. I also feel desperate because I've probably gained and lost 1000 lbs. I lost the last time thru prayer and Novena's. I'm not a Jesus freak, but, Your Lord and Saviour can do anything. Pray! Ask Him to help you, and don't forget to ask The Blessed Mother for intercession to Her Son. I know He will answer my prayers again and I will get this weight off. But don't despair, just persevere and Pray! I weigh around 300 lbs. now and used to weigh 370 lbs. I have severe Arthritis pains that go away when I lose weight. You can do it. Also, those who want to gain, Pray for help. It's not working your way, so try it!
I'm praying more now and I know it will work! A good Novena Prayer is:
May the precious Sacred Heart of Jesus be praised forever. Sacred heart of jesus, hear our prayers. Hail Mary, Mother of Jesus, pray for us. (Make your request), say 9 Hail Mary's for 9 days.
Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, Blessed art Thou among women, Blessed is the fruit of Thy Womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.
