My name is Julie, and I am more than a conqueror. I am on a new journey in my life in my quest to be healthy. I've discovered my long lost love of writing and started a blog recently to get some emotions out from this whole "get healthy" process. It's juliesweightlossjourney.com if you want to check it out. I don't just want to be skinny, even though that would be great. I've been skinny before, but got there in very unhealthy ways including years of suffering from bulimia. I get very emotional at times, and my friends know that I'm a "crier." These last few months have been a struggle of "getting out of my own head." Hence the blog writing. Prayers are always welcome!

My Goals:
I want to be healthy. I was born with a hole in my heart and have asthma, but I don't want those issues coupled with my weight to prevent me from living a full life. Eventually I would love to actually (gulp) jog a 5k!

My Program:
I am trying to eat as clean as possible. I restrict salt in my diet as much as possible and try to stick to the whole grains, vegetables and unprocessed foods. As they say, I shop on the perimeter of the grocery store, cuz those middle aisles are where all the bad stuff is. :-)

Personal Information:
I'm gave my life to Jesus Christ on October 10, 2004, and He has never let me down. I trust that Jesus will help guide me through this struggle in my life. Pray for my continued success.

I'm a self proclaimed workaholic and havea hard time saying no to people. Often I put other peoples feelings and needs ahead of my own. Now it's my turn to take care of me.
