Hello there, I am Dawn, 27 years old, married to my wonderful husband for 8 years now this last Valentines Day. I have 4 wonderful blessings, Wyatt 6, Grace 3,
Josie 2, and our final baby, making a family of 6, Jenna 1 year old.
As all of us on here know, this is not an easy journey....probably one of the hardest ones in life as an overweight person. I believe also though, one of the most rewarding. What inner strength it takes to do this! What motivation we all need to do it day by day. What dependability, us independant women, need from eachother each day. What a beautiful thing to see and be apart of..women from all walks of life, coming together to spur eachother on, to be vulnerable amongst, to celebrate with. I am pleased to be here with all of you. It doesnt matter what our size, how many pounds we need to loose, how many we have lost, what our need is, what "religion" we are, how many kids we have, if we have any, married or single, at home or working....we are all walking this road together, after the same goal, striving to be victorious!
I know I have only just begun-but I will finish! I will be victorious! I will win the race- I will be free from this bondage and break the chains! And I so cant wait to reach it with those of you who have encouraged me from the start!
Here are a few things that I will be changing and working on:
I will eat to live, not live to eat.
I will remember that I am worth every healthy choice.
I will claim victory EVERYDAY, even on those bad days
I will pray for strength EVERYDAY
I will check in with my teams way more often than I have been
I will ask for help and specific encouragement needs
I will meal plan and take time to prepare foods (cut veggies, make salads ahead, etc.)
I will excercise in what ever way I can and be okay that in this season, I CANT go to the gym or do curves or walk everyday or buy any workout equipment..but I can move! PTL!
I will make sure to encourage as many people as I can, and be as good of friend to others as many have been to me-
I will stay positive and believe the truth-reject the lies
I will post my goals and before pics throughout my house so that I am reminded each day of who I am working towards and who I am okay with leaving behind-

We are worth every calorie, every carrot stick, every mile, every portion size, every sweat from whatever workout DVD we actually pushed through and did, every good day and every bad day, EVERY POUND GONE!!!!!!
LETS GO!!!!!!!

    Hey, glad you had such a great day! What a blessing! :)

    I'm doing fairly well with exercise...averaging 3-4 days a week. :) Doc says my weight gain is excellent, so I'm happy.

    Hey You.

    So good to hear from you. I like the new family photos. soooo cute. I would love to support you. I'm only checking the message boards once a week so sparkmailing is ideal. I'm trying to focus on writing from home and keeping my house cleaner this year as I lose these last 10 lbs. I'm training for a 10k in June to keep me motivated. Let me know how I can support you.

    Happy New Year!
