Julie's Journey

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my Spark page.

I've just passed my two year Sparkaversary here and Spark People has really changed my life. When I started, I was 230 pounds down from my all time high of 236. I lost 6 pounds on my own before joining SP on 1/3/11. I lost 50 pounds by August 2011, just in time for my sister's wedding. My all time low was 180.4 in March 2012.

I was about 185 for a year and just could not lose. I have to admit that even though I was ...
Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my Spark page.

I've just passed my two year Sparkaversary here and Spark People has really changed my life. When I started, I was 230 pounds down from my all time high of 236. I lost 6 pounds on my own before joining SP on 1/3/11. I lost 50 pounds by August 2011, just in time for my sister's wedding. My all time low was 180.4 in March 2012.

I was about 185 for a year and just could not lose. I have to admit that even though I was exercising a lot, I wasn't eating as well as I could. I still watched my calories and ate tons of veggies but it just was not enough. And then over the Christmas holidays 2012, I gained 10 pounds due to zero exercise and pigging out for a month. Then in March 2013, I was suddenly laid off from my job and that meant all my routines were thrown off. I gained even more and now am back where I started. :-(

My Program:
I've always been a big water drinker, so I'm easily drinking 8-12 glasses of water a day.

I joined a gym where I can do the elliptical and use their weight machines. When at home, I walk with Leslie Sansone videos.

I'm also tracking what I eat and severely limiting my alcohol. I'm trying to eat plenty of protein and limit carbs (but not doing low carb or anything) but it's hard!

I live in Milpitas, CA which is a suburb of San Jose (Silicon Valley, Northern California).

I have a husband, Bill, and 2 kids (Jeremy is 14 and Jenny is 12).

I'm a technical writer. I am the president of the Berryessa And Milpitas (BAM) National Junior Basketball (NJB) league.

Let's finish BLC strong! Somehow we missed becoming friends at the beginning of the challenge!

Your doing fantastic with your weight loss! I can relate to you when you mentioned about your parents anniversary. This weekend my DH birthday. It's going to be hard to have a loss this week. My Dh decided he was going to make his homemade lasagna. He's a awesome cook. I think he missed his calling. emoticon Then if that wasn't bad enough my SIL decided he is getting my DD her favorite cake. It's an apple cake which is to die for. Just thinking about it I'm gaining weight. emoticon
