Hi, I'm Julie and I love the Spark site!

FIRST. HI TO MY FRIENDS WHO VISIT ME HERE. I AM VERY EXCITED! I am maintaining my 15 pound weight loss since early this year, and now if my doctor can help me to achieve healing in my back and legs so I am painfree, I will be one happy girl! I am entering into a very intense time where I am focusing ony on my health. I am pushing out the distractions and as I've been tutored in this technique, I will take a deep breath and say that to push distractions out of my life is much easier said than done. I have many people in my life that want to keep me accomplishing their agendas. I am not buying that any longer. I use the magic word.....NO! Very hard word to utter, even harder to continue to say that word. I wil also be attempting to lose another minimum of 20 more pounds but possibly even more! My doctor has told me that the less I weigh, the less pain I will have in my back. My primary care physician told me that I only need to lose 6 more pounds to be in the perfect range for a diabetic. I am not diabetic. I am trying to remain not a diabetic. My mom had severe diabetes so by trying to control diet and exercise, I hope that I won't have it. I'm sure that I will achieve my weight goal. I need to be persistent and positive and that usually comes easily to me.

I love the people who are members of Spark. They are so sweet and supportive! May God be with us all in becoming healthy and help us to attain our goals.

I have learned the secret of being content in any situation whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Phiippians 4:12-13

Rejoice in the Lord always
Give thanks in all things
Let your prayerss be made known to God
And the peace which passes all understanding will guard your emotions and thoughts in Christ Jesus.
Phillipians 4:4-9

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the assurance of things unseen. Hebrews 11:1

God's Blessings to All who come to this page! Julie

My Goals:
I weighed 110 pounds all during my teen years. After I had my two children, I've never been able to get back down to my prebaby weight.! I want to be a healthier weight, and I need to exercise more. I accomplished a bachelors degree in Business Management at age 52, in 2002. I got more than half done with my MBA by 2004. Now I want to focus on my health.

My Program:
I print out my menu weekly from this site. I am learning the whole system here for food and I am following the exercises that are taught on this site. I also workout at the gym three times a week. I walk every day and I am feeling more energetic.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised on the south side of Chicago. I am very outgoing and a very positive person. I love to do artwork, paint, draw, do graphic art on the computer and I've completed a graphic arts class for Photoshop CS and now I am certified as an advanced user. I have two grown children, a daughter and son. and one grandson, my son's child. I love my kids to peices and I'm very proud of them both. They are both successful in their respective careers. I consider my kids to be my best friends.

I have two cats that I rescued from an ADOPT center where they never euthanize their animals. I love them both so much. I'm a very affectionate person and people tell me that my cats act more like dogs than cats. That's because I give them plenty of affection. My male's name is Shadow. He is a Bombay breed and is black with one white splotch on his neck and has beautiful yellow, green eyes. My female is named Misty and she is an off-white, beige and light grey coloring with bea

Other Information:
I love to read. My favorite authors are Sue Grafton, Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Emily Toll, Sara Paretsky, Nora Roberts and Janet Evanovish, who is my favorite author because her stories make me laugh so hard. I think it's because her humor is from New Jersey and it reminds me of Chicago humor! I must add a new author who I've decided has wrote the funniest book I've ever read in my life. She's the author of the book Confessions of a Shopaholic. She wrote the book behind the movie! The book I just read is Remember Me! by Sophie Kinsella! I roared through that whole book. I want to write a book like hers. I've bought the book on how to be a published author by Janet Evanovich and I truly have the goal of writing funny romance novels. I personally know Emily Toll, as she graduated from my High School a year before me!
