NOT giving up!



This past Summer has been sheer ewwww!!!

From a surgery last yr,,,,, I've still am having problems. As of 4 weeks ago, I'm in a cast, with 2-4 more weeks to go. I've also have been receiving hyperbaric oxygen chamber treatments. This tires me out. My time slot is at 7:30AM, Monday through Friday, 2hrs a day. On the plus side, my foot is FINALLY healing.

I'm hopeful I'll be back to swimming and walking!!! I've started to walk from 10-20 minutes ...

I'm hopeful I'll be back to swimming and walking!!! I've started to walk from 10-20 minutes throughout the day. I just ADORE walking!! At my highest of 288 lbs, I had been stuck in bed, with a huge struggle to get up to use the ladies throne and get food. Often food was an entire Pepperidge farm cake!!! Now I'm bouncing rapidly with weight changes. My body isn't happy.

I NEED to change this!!! I've overcome so much!! Rarely do I use my power chair,,, mostly to grocery shop. With the back,,, I can't carry much. Walking,, which once was seemingly was no possible, is able to be again. Please never take ur body for granted. It's a great machine!!!

Wooohoo let's play hard!!! To those on the 5% challenge,,,, please keep in mind through the 8 weeks why we've started this journey,,, stay FOCUSED.

My Goals:
I'm a young Grandma. The kids are about all grown.

Owned by 's Izzy gal cat. She's a brown tiger, Lamar. U ask what is a Lamar cat? Their paws r almost of a dwarf cat, short!! Great first cat to stay off most of my things!! They have a strange rough fur, and when you hold them, generally on their backs,,cradling them, they will ALWAYS put their paws on your face!! So sweet.

She does yoga with me.

My Program:
Stay in range for eating calories, fats, protein and fiber.

Exercise will vary. At first 10-20 mins of walking. As I can will again, go back to swimming.

Personal Information:
Humor is important to surviving when life gets hard,, harder.

Prayer is always helpful,,,, gets me through a lot of the rough spots.

I am surrounded by both family and friends,,,, hmmm that MARYANN (GI) is counted among them ! WOOHOOOO !! So are MANY others on the teams,,, "TEAMS"??? yes,,, some Dawggies have WANDERED OUT of the Kennel, but we remain friends.

Other Information:
Have been a leadah for the Spirited Under Dogs, mostly as the ML,,, motivational leader,,, though,,all leaders have been given new names,,,ML on our team stands for "Mainiac Leadah " since I live in Maine, we DO get called such.

Diane, thank you so much for believing in me!!! Sometimes it feels like I take two steps forward and three steps back but I will get there. My name is Julie but I have been called Juju for as long as I can remember. I prefer and love the name Juju. I have heard great things about the hyperbaric chamber (I hope I spelled that right!) Thanks so much for stopping by my page! It brightened my day :)))
