I want encourage everyone to comment. The comment that I have received on Facebook have been wonderful and so inspiring to me. It would be great if everyone that reads this blog could enjoy the comments as well.

It would be nice if this blog was a 2-way street. I am sure that you have great ideas and stories that others who read would really benefit from reading. So don't be shy.

I changed the settings so anyone can comment and you can even comment annonymously, if you like.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Others may be wondering about the same things and I am happy to open myself up to all of you. I am putting it all out there.


  1. Dawn. Your story is inspirational. I have a friend whose story is like yours but she has not started to let go. How can I help her? Would me sending her your blog be something that would make her feel bad?
    I think you need to share your story far and wide--- you can help many people like yourself.
    Thank you for sharing.

  2. Thank you so much for your comment.
    I started blogging so that I can share my story. I only wish I had started blogging from the beginning...but it is better late than never, Right?
    I have no problem with you sharing my blog with whoever you think may like/benefit from it. As far as if it will make her feel bad...I really don't know. It would depend on where she is. If she is feeling really bad about her self than it might make herself feel worse, but if she is wanting to start, than it could be just what she needs. I hope that it would be a good thing for her to read.

    For me, my husband and mother were both concerned with me and my weight. They were both trying to encourage me to start by asking if I wanted to go out for a walk or go swimming and they were expressing their concerns for my health. I said to both of them that I need to do this for myself and I will start when I am ready. I know that when I made my mind up to do it, I would do it. It was about a month after I told them that that I started.

    I know I didn't answer your question. I'm sorry but I really don't have the answer for you. I would like to think that my blog could only help people. It may be just what she needs.

    If I can do it, anyone can do it!
