12/15/2016 I am HONORED to be named today's Spark Motivator. I encourage all of you to make a lifestyle change so you will be healthy and feel better.

December 29, 2013

My journey continues. I have not been able to stay focused long enough to keep the scale moving down. I write my goals here then don't look at them again. Starting today 2014 will be MY YEAR to reach my weight loss goal. I will reach them ONE DAY AT A TIME !!!

06/02/2013 I saw these two statements on someone's Sparkpage and wanted to post them on mine so I can see them every day!!!

Start chasing your dreams today, as tomorrow may never come.

Life is short, limits are over-rated and pain is just weakness leaving the body!

1/13/2013 Happy New Year !!! I'm coming up on my 5 year Spark anniversary. Since I joined in March of 2008 I may have missed a few days on Spark but for the most part I've been active. I lost 75 pounds in the first year and began to learn to maintain. NOT EASY. I did very well until our good friend passed away in 2011. Even with that I have only gained back 20 of 75 pounds. Last Sunday I began a challenge to get back to logging my food every day. I was successful for 7 days and show a loss of 5 pounds. Note: I have also been sick and have not been able to exercise like I want too. Point is: It's a lifelong journey. One that I am enjoying. This is not the first time I have lost weight but it is the first time I have not lost control and gained it all back. I look forward to a GREAT 2013.

11/28/2012 MY NEW GOALS!!! I am hanging in here although it has not been easy. I reached my weight goal of 145 back in the summer of 2009. I am back to 161.4 as of this morning but I am thankful that it is not back to 220 or more. TODAY IS A NEW DAY and here is what I'm working on. The 5 mile trail run that I have done for the last two years is coming up in February. I'm going to start training for that. I will get back on the treadmill and when my new padals get here (any day now) I will get back on my stationary bike. My goal is to be back to 145 pounds by the trail run.

3/1/2008 My name is Julie. I love to eat and it shows. I am married and have two grown daughters. I love to travel. Check out my pictures. See how round I am? I am only 5 foot tall. I don't say this with bad feelings I say it as a fact. BUT I will lose this weight and I will add pictures to show my progress. That's why I put so many full body pictures. Add me to your friends and watch my progress. Have a great day !!!

Personal Information:
3/1/2008 I live in the big state of Texas. I have two beautiful daughters and a great husband of 28 years. He is 5'9 and about 145 so I look like two ton tessy next to him. I don't want to look that way anymore. AND I look way older and he has been mistaken for our daughter's husband. I will look younger.

5/6/09 I am no longer two ton tessy. Now I can fit into Donald's pants.

    It's extremely common to hit a plateau at some point during your weight loss journey. Obviously it can be really discouraging when the number on the scale doesn't move. There is good news — We've got some tips to help bust through that plateau and see the number get lower and lower.

    1) We need to re-evaluate our caloric needs - as we lose weight, our bodies tend to burn fewer calories at a slower rate, therefore we need to consume fewer calories. You will either need to burn more calories or consume at least 500 less calories per day

    2) Getting Back to Basics: Writing down everything we eat in a food journal to make sure we are still on track. Remember portion control is just one key to permanent weight loss.

    3) Moving More: Are you still trying to get in those extra movements like you did when you first started losing weight. Once we obtain our weight loss goal, we sometimes slack off on the exercise a bit. And just go to the gym or use our home equipment and forget to park out a little from the grocery store or maybe walk to it if it is close enough.

    4) Choosing Fresh Foods over Pre-Packaged: fresh over processed is always best. You know what your putting into your body.

    5) Getting in Your Daily Water: Yes that still counts. Make sure you didn't slip back into your old latte' ways and now your adding extra calories by drinking them in. Water is still the best way to go. You can still change things up by adding fresh fruit to the mix.

    6) Stress: Stress is always a factor in weight loss and weight gain. It can go either way. So make sure you take some time out for you. Even if it's just a few minutes in the bathroom to relax in the tub. Just lock out the world and do you...You deserve it!
