Prayers to loose weight

Does anyone have any prayers or novenas they pray when they are trying really hard to loose weight. I need some help with this. I can’t seemed to do it by myself. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I found this while searching on the web to try and help with your question

God Bless you dear friend and much love and peace to you and those you love


Try fasting. Scripture tells us that when we include fasting with our prayers, it makes our prayers more effective. The fasting kills two birds with one stone – it makes the prayer more effective and the lack of food helps in the weight loss process.

Dear friend

I posted a page from EWTN that talked of losing weight but it was rightly deleted because it was too bulky for this format. After I had posted it I thought ‘:eek: oh dear!’ but left it because it may have been ok. Anyhow Ann, I have popped the link below for you and anyone else to take a look at. I hope this is of some use to you.

Take care:)

God Bless and much love and peace to you and those you love


Hi Ann,

I just want to second what Teresa has told you. I am in Light Weigh now, and it is priceless! I have struggled with my weight for so long, and have prayed many, many heartfelt prayers over the years for deliverence. For me, the Light Weigh is the answer to those prayers. It is a very Catholic program (not a diet!) and it gives you the tools to succeed.

Feel free to e-mail if I can be of further help in this. I know from my own experience that you are hurting, and I pray that God sends you what you need.

Praying for you and a solution to your issue. Amen

I just said a prayer to St. Thomas Aquinas, a very heavy saint, for your intention. God bless you.
