Thank you for visiting my Spark page. A little about myself. My name is Dodi and I am 51 years old. I am the mother of 4 grown grown children I've been married to my husband Mark for 25+ years and he is my best friend. We are expecting our first grandchild this year. For more years than I can count I've been struggling with my weight. The need to lose weight has always been a part of my life. Several years ago I lost 96.6lbs with Weight Watchers, but even then I didn't see the weight loss, I still didn't feel good about myself. I still felt like the fat chick. I've always kept the promises that I make to family and friends, but when it comes to the promises that I make to myself, well let's just say they last for about a week and then I'm right back to square one. I've been waiting for someone to tap me on the shoulder and say that they would help me to lose the weight and I've even asked friends and family to help me, but then I realized that by asking them I'm placing my burden on them and that's not fair to them. I did this to myself, all by myself and now I need to lose it for myself. It's time that I take responsibility for what I've done. So, here I am, taking the first step. The hardest part was actually posting a picture of myself. I really don't like having my picture taken because it reminds me of the truth and shows me how much weight that I've gained. But then I though if I'm truly serious about the weight loss journey that I'm embarking on then I have to take the plunge and post a picture.

    ♥The true way to live an abstinent life without addiction to food
    is to enjoy every moment as it passes, to keep oneself busy,
    and to witness the everyday things around us to realize
    that the beauty of life lies all around us as well as inside.
