Hi - I'm Julie. Welcome!

Julabelle (my first SparkPeople name) comes from an old nickname that one of my crazy aunts called me when I was little (and...well... it's a lot better than the other nickname I had when I was little - think of a toddler trying to say Julie and see what you come up with). I recently updated my Sparkpeople name because... well... because I'm not a 'belle. Most of my friends call me Jules or Jula.

I'm a happily married, mother of two, looking to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Easily said, right? It is such a challenge for me. Maybe because I view it as a challenge, it is a challenge. Hmmmm....

My goal is to be healthy, active and athletic, and to ultimately reach 140-145.

"May today there be peace within.
May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.
May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content with yourself just the way you are.
Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us. "

I have not failed; I have just found 10,000 ways that don't work.
- Thomas Edison (I LOVE this quote!! )
I will keep trying until I find a way that works for me.
