Ready for spring...


I really do mean to be better about blogging, but the weeks just end up speeding past. Totally used to points plus by now, and have pretty much stopped comparing the "old" plan and the "new" plan-which is good. The new plan has pretty much forced me to choose things differently and ask myself if it something is worth it. Which I know, is exactly the point.

So a few updates in my life: I celebrated my 40th birthday, which was a little traumatic for me. I'm not sure why except it made me feel like I wasted so much of my life being so, so overweight I didn't get to enjoy it and now I feel I'm coming into my own so late in life. ANYWAY, it's past, so onward and upward, right?

One of my birthday presents was from my mother in law and it was money, with a specific directive to use it on a "good" bike. I have a bike..from Walmart and it was okay for the past few years. Last summer, I tried out my brothers "good" bike and fell in love with how much nicer it felt and rode. So I am super excited to go and get fitted for my bike soon as the weather gets nicer for good.

I also found myself dropping out of 'plus-size' pants for the first time as an adult!! It feels AMAZING to be in regular sizes! I have also dropped shirt sizes, just not as fast, but I can actually see where I won't be in plus-sizes on top either. It's so weird because if I go to a store, I still look at plus size pants first because I FORGET! It wasn't so long ago I had to buy all my clothes from a catalog, because nothing in a store would never have fit me.

Last thing that happened recently, my sweet little boy turned 7! I can't believe how fast it has gone by. Makes me very sad to think the next 7 will past as fast.

Hope everyone who reads this (mom?) is doing great!

I am posting some recent photos-I have lost 239lbs as of today!




  1. You look amazing and so beautiful! I'm so proud of you.

  2. You are awesome!

    I think I like the PointsPlus plan better than the older plan. I had success with both but I feel like PP makes you make healthier choices.

  3. I continue to be in awe of your accomplishments! great job Julie! Might even dig my bike out of the shed and try have a go with it! :-/
