A Brand New Dawn

I'm Dawn, a wife and mother of a beautiful 2 year old girl. I'm trying to make permanent changes in my life that will enable me to be a healthier, happier mom, someone my daughter can be proud of.

~*Update*~

Quick recap....In the last few months of 2010 I lost 60 lbs, met the goal of taking my daughter trick or treating, won first place in 2 fitness related challenges, and 2nd place in another. Those things motivate me and lift my spirit. In December I hit some roadblocks in my life, and I've gained back 10 of those lbs lost. But I'm getting back on track, and I'm going to tear it up this year!!!
