My name is Julie Scroggins; I am one of 40 lucky individuals chosen to participate in Healthy Initiative.  My goal is to lose 75 pounds and emerge a healthier and happier version of myself at the Gala in March 2013 – where I have serious plans to rock the red carpet.  I have been given this amazing opportunity to finally break through all of the barriers that have prevented my success in the past.  My journey began on October 28th when I met the other 39 Ambassadors and the leadership team of this program.  I made a commitment that day to myself and to my team that we will all do this together and that we will all succeed.  It’s been an amazing journey so far and it’s only just begun.    You can follow me on my blog (Fitness Center Crasher/My journey to fitness with Vince Vaughn’s Mom)

  1. I’m Grace Martinez and I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I grew up in an obese household and was an obese child. I learned how to eat and how (not) to excercise from my mom. Even though I’m healthy now, I know that if I didn’t change my lifestlye, I would end up like my mom, whom is dying from obesity related disease at the age of 68. I’m 32 years old and I can’t remember a time when my mom was healthy. I WILL NOT leave the same legacy for my children. I WILL NOT teach them the same eating habits I learned from my mom.

    I am so grateful that I was picked to be a part of this team of amazing people. I’ve learned so much from everyone. I’ve lost the cravings to eat processed, sugary foods. I have learned to preplan my meals and excercise so I’m not left eating junk. In a bit over 6 weeks, I’ve reduced my weight by 21lbs, but more importantly, I have more energy and I’m happier. I WILL lose a total of 75 pounds by the Gala on March 9, 2013. Come and see the new me..
