My Goals:
I want to weight about 130-150 lbs, so I can keep up with my exercise obsessed DH. He rides his bike 50 miles every week end.

My Program:
I had gastric by pass on July 2, 2010. So, I'm following my doctor's orders for my Rue n Y bariatric surgery.

Right now that's 24 oz of food a day, with 2 protein shakes and supplements. I have lost about 140 lbs, my scale can never make up it's mind and I know I shouldn't but I weight my self every day, multiple times. I just know I will go up and down as much as a couple of pounds and not be discouraged about it.

Work: Microbiology Supervisor 25 Yrs
Hobbies: Gardening
Orchids, Reading, Geneology, Cooking ethnic foods, traveling (RV)

Other Information:
I'm somewhat of a Geek, I have been using my iPhone for the last 2 years and came to find Spark People through the applications as I was looking for receipes. I have over 250 applications on my phone and wish I had more memory for storage!

I carried a Palm OS Zodiac 2 for the PIM's and such and probably had almost as many apps on it. I set up my earlier palm pilots to use my cell phone as a modem to let me browse the web. So slow, that was back about 2001 or so. Also my bag got heavy carrying around all the cables I had!

Welcome to the Lost a Loved One team. Any time you need a shoulder to lean on we are there to listen and be as supportive as possible.

I love the picture of Shireen and you at the prom. What a wonderful time for both of you. I too want to travel in an RV, but have another three years to save up for it and get a trailer or motor home. emoticon

Hi there! I was just browsing through alot of the Ethnic message threads and I saw how much weight you've lost! Wow, It's so hard to believe, so I had to come to your SP page and congratulate you! Unreal! I am so happy for you! You're an inspiration to me! I've lost around 35# so far with 12# before SP and still have another 50 to go, so that's why I feel so in gear because of your weight loss! You should never quit congratulating yourself, because you surely are a HUGE help to SP!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thanks for remembering that soon it will be the 1st annv for John's death...it is still raw and hard to grasp. Whoever said time heals all wounds must have lived to be 175 ~laughs~ because so far time has not been my friend. For the most part I just try and not think..like that works..NOT but I try to do things that are completely different, keep busy. Again, thank you for remembering, means a lot to me!

Hugs and Blessings,
Julie
