I've come a long way in this weight loss journey, and it's hasn't always been easy. I'm so grateful for the help and encouragement I have received from Spark friends! Without that encouragement, I wouldn't be where I am now.

Having regained about 80 lbs. I'm at a point where I need to focus on myself again. I don't want to keep gaining. I need to make lists every day of what my goals are. No exceptions! No excuses!

Other's are doing it. So can I! Motivation is key! Time to find it, where ever I can!

Daily Positive Affirmations:

For me, dieting is "Permanent": I am NOT naturally thin. I must be eternally vigilant and avoid the temptations that I can't resist.

No amount of food would "EVER" be enough food. I'm "Just as Hungry" 80, 90, or 100 pounds (Or More) Overweight as when I stick to my goal weight.

�YOU CAN HAVE RESULTS OR EXCUSES, NOT BOTH.� �UNKNOWN

�YOUR LEVEL OF SUCCESS IS ONLY PREDETERMINED BY YOUR LEVEL OF EFFORT.�

"You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don't have that kind of feeling for what it is you are doing, you'll stop at the first giant hurdle."
-George Lucas

Still have a ways to go. Need to work on finding improved ways to help me reach my goals. What I have been doing isn't working.
Finding the motivation to keep up with the workouts and healthy eating is what I need to work on.


Member Since: 6/9/2007

Fitness Minutes: 345,057

My Goals:
To tone up my arms and legs. To lose my belly flab.
To eat more fruits and veggies.
To do more weight training than cardio.
To not be so hard on myself.


My Program:
Tracking my food intake daily.
Daily exercise, no matter what it is.



Personal Information:
My name is Julie.

I live in Kansas City, MO but am originally from Clinton, IA. Dh and I have lived here going on 31 years. I go to the gym nearly every other day and am pretty good at tracking my fitness and food daily.


Other Information:
My grandchildren are my motivation to keep losing this weight. I want to be around to play with them as they grow up, as I am able to do now.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon ~~THE WITCH~~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    She comes by night, in fearsome flight, In garments black as pitch,
    the queen of doom upon her broom, the wild and wicked witch,
    a crackling crone with brittle bones and desicated limbs,
    two evil eyes with warts and sties and bags about the rims,
    a dangling nose, ten twisted toes and folds of shriveled skin,
    She hurtles by, she sweeps the sky and hurls a piercing screech.
    As she swoops past, a spell is cast on all her curses reach.
    Take care to hide when the wild witch rides to shriek her evil spell.
    What she may do with a word or two is much too grim to tell.
    ~Jack Prelustky~
