Summer 2010 - Actively pursuing weight loss - My first 5K-Time: 45:21
Hi, I’m Julie. I have gained my weight back once again. I have to realize that I have a billion excuses to why this has happened to me. I didn’t want to be “that” person but the truth is “I am” and it is going to be ok. I am coming back to find the answers, be accountable and seek encouragement, guidance and help. I am stress eater. I need to find my triggers one by one. I need to take a long hard look at what has happened. I don’t want to give up.
