Hello my name is Julia, I'm 34 years old and I am excited for what this year is going to bring!!! I have been on my journey for quite some time now and with each year I am happy with my results!!! When I started this journey I was 310 lbs, my biggest weight ever... I just had my son and was so depressed and I had a very low self-esteem... One day it hit me that if I wanted to be around for my son, some major changes needed to take place... And that's when my weight loss journey started... My son is now 6 years old and even with the health problems I have I am healthier and stronger than I was in my 20's!!! I have lost 62 lbs thus far and have 42 more lbs to get at my goal!!! Lots of changes have taken place, good changes!!! Like I am getting married this year!!! I have more confidence in myself than I have ever had and I am stronger and healthier because of habits I have broken and new ones I have developed!!! I still have a ways to go but I know that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!!! I have a very supportive church family, fiance, son, daughter, and friends that are cheering me on and encouraging me along this journey!!! So here's to a "New year, & a new me!!!
