My name is Juli. I was 35 years old when I started this journey (38 now), I'm 5'3" and my starting weight was 265 lbs and BMI 46.9. I was sick of being overweight. I had been that way my whole life and I couldn't live that way anymore. This is my 4th try with SparkPeople and I'm beyond determined to reach my goals! No more excuses. I have a metobolic muscle disease which is part of the reason I've had such a hard time losing weight in the past. So I decided I needed extra help and chose to have gastric sleeve surgery. I restarted this journey on 4/28/18 and I had the surgery on 5/8/18. I have a goal of losing 125lbs! I can do this!!! -------------------------------------- Total Inches Lost As Of 3/23/19 - 71.75" Highest Known Weight 285lbs - 86.2lbs Lost Was 112lbs BMI Less Than 40 (Obese Class III 40 & Up) Weigh 224.8lbs - 7/14/18 BMI Less Than 35 (Obese Class II 35-39.9) Weigh 197.6lbs - 10/18/18 & 7/4/20 BMI Less Than 30 (Obese Class I 30-34.9) Weigh 169lbs - 3/24/19 ****BMI Less Than 25 (Overweight 25-29.9) - Weigh 141lbs Goal Less Than 50% Body Fat - 7/22/18 Goal Lose 10lbs - 5/6/18 Goal Lose 10% (12lbs) - 5/10/18 Goal Weigh Less Than 250lbs (16lbs) - 5/12/18 Goal Lose 20lbs - 5/15/18 Goal Lose 25% (31.15lbs) - 7/2/18 Goal Lose 30% (37.4lbs) - 7/11/18 Dr's 3 Month Post-Op Goal Reached At 9 Weeks Post Op!

My Goals:
I have approximately 125lbs to lose. That's almost half of me!!! I want to be comfortable in my own skin. I want to be healthy. I want to have energy to live my life every day. I want to really LIVE!

My Program:
For now I'm counting calories and trying to eat as clean as I can. I'm trying to do some type of exercise every day. And I make sure to hit my step target everyday as well. I lift weights and do some aerobic exercises. I also enjoy dancing around the house and running in place when I need to burn off some silliness. I also use a recumbent stationary bike.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I'm looking for new friends and buddies here in the Pittsburgh area.
