About Me:
My name is Julie and I'm 41. I started my weight loss journey in early 2009. It has taken me that long to lose 34 lbs. I started at 214 and as of today I'm 180. My lowest was 173 back in June 2011. I've made a lifestyle change and I go through periods of just maintaining, losing a few or gaining a few. My goal is to be 145 which is a good weight for me at 5'6". I've made exercise a regular part of my life and this year I have completed 3 5k's running most of them. I try to run or get some kind of cardio 3-5 days per week and my eating has changed to low carb.
Plan of Choice:
Low Carb
Workout Philosophy:
I'm a Running Fanatic

Back To Seriousness and Weigh-In

Posted on January 11, 2012 at 6:43pm 6 Comments

Highest Weight - 214

Last Weigh-In (Dec. 12th) - 182.0

Today's Weight - 183.2

Difference - +1.2

So not bad for going through Christmas and New Years but now it's time to reboot and get serious with the diet. I've been at this for 2 years and I've been treading water since the summer. I've got to make this happen this year. My body has had more than enough time to get comfortable in the low 180's. I'm excited to try and get it down to my goal weight of 145. That's only… Continue

Here Goes Nothing

Posted on December 12, 2011 at 11:12am 9 Comments

Well, I haven't blogged since Nov. 20th. Where I started to record my weigh-ins. Unfortunately, that didn't go so well. I can't stop struggling. I have been afraid of getting on the scale but today I bite the bullet. I really need to get on weekly to hold myself accountable. So I'm promising myself I will do this weekly and not chicken out no matter what happens. So here it goes:

Highest Weight - 214

Last Weigh-In (11/2) - 179.8

Todays Weight - 182.0

Difference… Continue

I haven't blogged in a while but am realizing I need the accountablilty. I'm going to post my weigh ins from now on. I struggled at the beginning of this month. I fell victim to the Halloween candy and my sugar issues led me to let it domino. I'm finally back on track and I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving. Crazy huh?? The reason being is I'm running in a 5k Turkey Trot. I've really been training and yesterday at the track I completed a 5k in exactly 38 min on the dot. My goal for the the… Continue

Hey Juls!  You've helped me with finding a good site to transition to from WC.  Thanks for letting everyone know about it :)

I agree it's definitely the closest we've come, and so far I'm liking it. It seems pretty well organized and I love that we can customize our blogs a little. The ads aren't hideously annoying. I think this one has real promise

Thanks for letting me know about WC group!  I am sooooo there with yas :D

So you've made the switch from WC too. What do you think of this site? So far so good. I'm just finding my way around.
At 6:33am on July 6, 2011, Rhonda said…'s the running going? My ankle is feeling really good. I'm only running on the treadmill at this point though.  Anymore races in the near future?

Aww Thank you for your wonderful comment!  All I know is "strength" has very little to do with any success I have lol...I really think that PATIENCE is the key to dealing with long term successful weight loss--you don't gain it over night and you won't lose it overnight either.  However it is VERY easy to get frustrated with the whole thing (happens to me all the time!!)

Anyway I will keep trying and I know you will too!  I am super happy our WC Family came over...hopefully more will keep coming over to this site though, there are some long-termers that haven't been on WC in a while so I hope they pop up before the site goes down :)

I weigh in tomorrow morning.  I've really been hitting it hard this week.  I've been not only doing my 90 minute workout at home each morning before taking my daughter to horse camp-but then I've been going to work out at the Y for an hour after.  I've also been really good about my eating.  I had two slices of cheese pizza Monday so that may have messed me up a little--and a cheese quesadilla on Saturday when we went out.  I hope those don't mess things up.  I didn't go overboard, I don't think......Crossing my fingers!

Hiya Juls!  Just checking in with you.  I hope you're doing well and still having lots of great success :)

Oh, I remember when my boys went to kindergarten... it's such an exciting day, but you're right, it's a bit sad too.  When my oldest was in kindergarten, and just starting hockey, there was no way I would have imagined him leaving in 11 years.  But they do grow up.  You'll have an emotional time in 2 weeks... :)

Have a great day and thanks for the encouragement!
