On The Road To A Healthier Me!

Updated: June 26, 2014

Hello and welcome to my Sparkpage! My name is Julie.

First of all I would like to thank God for allowing me to stumble across Sparkpeople on January 21, 2006.

Hello and welcome to my Sparkpage! My name is Julie.

First of all I would like to thank God for allowing me to stumble across Sparkpeople on January 21, 2006. At that time I decided that it was time to make a drastic lifestyle change and do something about my weight. Each day I ate 3 healthy meals, 3 healthy snacks, and drank 64 ounces of water. Over the course of about a year and a half, I lost a total of 90 pounds. I felt so much better, had more energy, and enjoyed my family even more. I know it's all because God gave me the strength, motivation, and willpower to do so. My favorite bible verse is Plilippians 4:13 ~ I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. I know I would not have been able to do so otherwise.

Since that time, I have gotten off the bandwagon and have let some of the weight creep back in. To be exact, I have gained 77 pounds of the weight back. Yikes!

Now I am ready to get serious again and do something about this extra weight I am carrying around!

Not trying to sound cliche, but my motto is "If I can do this, anyone can!" My ultimate goal is to lose 140 pounds. I have 127 more pounds to go. Just getting myself motivated to exercise more would help tremendously.

I welcome any fellow "Sparkers" who would like to share any ideas during our journey to a better life, to do so. I will be glad to as well. Thank you for visiting my Sparkpage and feel free to leave a comment. My prayer is that everyone has the success I have already had and will continue to have.

God Bless,
Julie

Hello and thanks for being my friend. I have had the same problems with my weight. I decided to start eating healthy and exercising when I was 27, after being overweight starting at the age of 16 and just continuing to grow larger each year. I lost quite a bit of weight, around 50-60 pounds in a couple of months and felt fantastic! I took my mom shopping for new dresses with me and we had a ball. She went on the diet with me and lost quite a bit of weight also. Then life happened and I gained back all the weight I had lost and a whole lot more. Now I need to lose around 175-185 pounds. Wow! That seems a lot more then I was expecting for some reason. But it has to be done, for my health and so I can feel better physically, spiritually and emotionally. I know God is there for me if I pray to him and I need to make prayer a more important part of my life. I love God and I haven't been putting him in my life very often. I feel so sad when I say that. It reminds me of that Footprints poem.
Well, sorry for polluting your beautiful page with my garbage. You can talk to me anytime. And your daughter and grandson are gorgeous! Your daughter reminds me of someone who lives in the area I live in. I love purple! lol
Have a wonderful weekend and God bless!
Alisha

Hi! I got your sparkmail message today about a 25 pounds by Christmas challenge, but where do I go to sign up for it? Is this party of a team or what is the name of the challenge? Thanks!

Hi Julie~
Thanks for the message on my spark page. Sounds like we have been on this rollercoaster together for a few years. Like you, I had lost a lot, close to 50 pounds, kept it off for a while... then it found me again.

I will find the Birthday challenge again and join you again. We can do this!!! And we sisters in Christ must stick together! I am going to add you as a spark friend. I will check in with you later. Hope you have an awesome day!
God Bless,
~Sandy
