Greetings! My name is Dawn and this is the first time for me to use a message board on SparkPeople. I have been using Weight Watchers online for the last few months but felt no real connection with others. I have been using SparkPeople for two days now (I know that's only 48 hours but we all have to start) and feel like with the opportunities to put myself out there and SparkCoach I will be able to forge relationships that will keep me motivated and accountable.
A little about myself is that I am a registered nurse working as the Director of Nursing Services at a small nursing and rehabilitation center. I love geriatrics and this is definitely my home away from home. On the side of why I am on SparkPeople; I have always had a problem with my weight...well that may not be entirely true. I have always had a skewed view of what I weighed and looked like. Even at my thinnest (a size 6-8) I always felt like the fat girl. This time around, I am not just changing my outside, I am changing my inside as well. I am a Christian and am endeavoring to improve my relationship with God. I firmly believe that without His healing, I will forever be on the roller coaster of gain/lose and never truly see myself the way I am.
