My name is Juliene. I am a 27 year old stay at home mommy to a beautiful baby boy(bon 8/1/2011) as well as two fur children. My husband and I live just outside of Baltimore, Maryland and are both transplants. I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and he is from Chicago, Illinois. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and watching movies. I love to write and have been diligently trying to get a book and blog off and running. My weight loss journey started here in July 2009 just after we got engaged. I decided I did not want to be fat on my wedding day and although I was heavier than I am now I was 50 lbs lighter than when I started. Over the last few years I have lost 120+ lbs, had a healthy pregnancy with a moderate weight gain(38 lbs) and have relost the baby weight. My journey now is about maintaining a healthy body and mind and toning up this body to prepare for more babies and a healthier life all around.

I tell everyone about my journey to a healthy weight because you never know who might need that extra little boost to get their own journey started. I am not nearly as active on Sparkpeople as I once was but I am promising to be more active. I am here for anyone who needs me so don't be scared. Reach out and ask, I did and look at the success I have achieved. I truly believe that if I can do it, anyone can!

These were the original gifts I gave myself when I lost the weight and I keep them as a reminder that I can do anything I set my mind to.

    Hey chickie. I know I was just telling some co workers the other day I couldn't believe how fast it was going this time around! Baby wasn't in idea, position so rather than try to get him or her to move I decided to leave it as another surprise. Plus we were 1/2 hr behind and the waiting room was backed up and I honestly don't care what we have :)

    How are things going with your two boys?
