Feeling great today. My skinny jeans are getting too big! And this top is a medium from American Eagle!





Here's the difference 100 pounds makes.





Fifteen pounds down and high waisted bikini bottoms means a more confident Jan-Marie!



I have 85 pics in my gallery

Hi Everyone!

My name is Jan-Marie. My weight has always been an issue for me. I'm hoping to stay motivated by being actively involved in the Spark community. Knowing that people are willing to support me having never met me before is a really great feeling. Thanks in advance for your support.

I want to be happy and healthy and feel good about my body and myself.

My Program:
Use the nutrition tracker every day.

Do cardio 3-4 times a week.

Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.



Personal Information:
I'm a 25 year old recent college grad with a Master's in Educational Research and Evaluation. I'm from Ohio but I am a Bobcat NOT a Buckeye.

I'm currently living in Michigan, east of Ann Arbor.

I'm 5'8" and started my journey at 274.8 pounds.

A healthy weight for me would be from 121-164 but I'm aiming for around 155.

I married J.D., the love of my life, on November 15, 2014.

I REALLY enjoyed your blog today. Tracking is by far the one thing that has held me accountable for my choices. Watching the nutrition analysis has been very eye-opening. I clearly reach for too many items with way too much sodium in them.
I am getting BETTER at not eating for emotional reasons. I find that channeling those emotions into a sweaty workout relieves the stress that I would have otherwise tried to alleviate with food.

HELLO,

just read your blog for the first time. You are a true inspiration and I believe your NEW blog will be a success!!! Please, let me know how to access it!

Don't overthink your past. Focus on today and what you've accomplished and learned from all of your experiences. That is what truly matters, since you can't change the past. Embrace your decisions and who you have become because of it.

Keep on going, moving forward...

Juliana Floret
