My name is Josie and I live in southeast MI. I'm an Aspie living with asthma, IBS, migraines, fibromyalgia, and a rare nerve/muscle disorder called fasciculation cramp syndrome.

I love reading (especially urban fantasy and paranormal romance), history, science, anthropology, archaeology, linguistics, singing, dance (particularly bellydance and ballet), animals (especially cats), and anything involving the metaphysical or paranormal. I'm also a total geek and nerd. :)

My Goals:
I've been on and off SparkPeople since 2008. My full story is listed in my blogs, if you're interested. I'm currently 355 pounds. My highest and lowest adult weights have been 365 and 242.

I never managed to crack below 240 despite trying numerous things, cycling calories, working out 6+ hours a week, etc, and that was the discouragement that spiraled out of control. That's when I stopped trying the first time. Then I tried Weight Watchers and followed their program and gained weight and was accused of lying. That's when I gave up the second time.

Then my weight was relatively stable around 300 until I moved halfway across the country in 2014, and I bounced up and down, sometimes 10 pounds a month, through no effort of my own.

Now? I'm here again and ready to do my best. I have multiple health issues that frustrate me, so even if the weight loss doesn't happen "as it should", I need to become healthier and do this for me.

My Program:

Personal Information:
March 2017 = 355
July 2017 = 323

Other Information:
I was shocked and thrilled to be named May 14th, 2009's Done Girl of the Day! Thank you!

    hey whats up!
    i read your about me section and we MUST know the same people cuz when i try to get my friends or family to be healthy with me or workout with me i get all sorts of answers like i dont want to, or uuuuuuuum , or yeah thats cool but i cant today or maybe ill start using that spark people too but they never do. so ive given up on trying to get people to join me. im like when they wanna do it they will let me know :) so i noticed you have a dog? how long have you had him/her? i have been thinking about getting a dog too, so i can take it for a walk and get some exersize outside and not just on my treadmill.

    well your doing a great job :)

    Thanks for the comment on my page! And congrats to you too on your success! Sparks has been a great tool to help me stay motivated. It's not easy, I'm sure you know that, but the encouragement here from people who are going through the same challenges I am helps to keep me moving in the right direction. We are not alone in this. We can do it!
