Hello and Welcome to SparkPeople!

I started Sparking in June of 2007. By using Spark and some self discovery along the way, I'm down 50 pounds, and am holding steady at a healthy weight. Spark is a massive site, you'll be discovering new and exciting things for months to come!

Work out the weight you want to be by your wedding day and divide the overall difference into weekly chunks. A series of small goals are much easier to achieve than one big one.

I'm Dawn. I like the idea of losing weight but not the reality of it! emoticon

I'm engaged and getting married October 26th. I'm a nerd and he's a geek....the wedding theme is "Doctor Who meets The Big Bang Theory" emoticon'll be fun.

I'm NOT looking forward to the photos though :( At 207 lbs, this is the heaviest I've ever been. And I'm not good with long-term goals.......

A friend of mine suggested this site.....I'm just "showing up" right now.....hoping that this will be enough to get me to the next level.

...just trying to figure things out now.

I look forward to showing up and seeing what happens. :)

Take Care,
