Hello there. My name is Dawn and I have struggled with my weight my whole life. My highest weight was 375. I will NEVER go back to that place. Food has always been an issue with me. I'm trying to find balance within myself to finally break through the food chains I'm bound in.
As a child, I always used food to help me deal with my emotions and I guess as an adult I still do the same thing. This is a slow evolution for me and I'm taking it day by day. I have a hard time looking in the mirror because I'm disgusted at how I have let myself go. I'm taking THAT day by day as well. I know I need to love myself for ME and I'm trying to do that each day. I have a wonderful partner who supports me and loves me for ME and I'm a very lucky girl to have that. THAT is something i will never take for granted.
10/04/11~Since writing this, I have lost over 75 lbs. I've learned so much on this journey and it's not even half over. The biggest lesson? I'm worth it.

04/11/12~UPDATE~ 122 lbs lost to date. Still believe you can't do this?? YOU CAN!!!!!!!
You really need to WANT to lose weight for this to work. If you don't, if you don't fully commit...you will NOt be successfull. Believe in yourself and know that you ARE worth it!
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Steve Jobs
