Time for a new beginning!

My name is Dawn. And I live in Michigan and am early retired on disability. I came upon this site back in 2008. Back then I weighed about 180 lbs. I was off to a good start losing weight until I ended my marriage. Then gave up on myself and this site. I now weigh 229 lbs and am miserable! Time to set goals working one day at a time and begin a worth while journey back to the "Me" I once knew.

Time to set goals working one day at a time and begin a worth while journey back to the "Me" I once knew. I had always been much smaller than this, at an average weight of about 140 lbs most of my adult life after having 3 children who are now grown. Then after being diagnosed having fibromyelgia and arthritis I found comfort in emotional eating and sitting online. I'm hoping to succeed at this journey and in turn inspire others to do the same.

"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."
-Og Mandino

"Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life."
-Tom Venuto

"Just because we are knocked down does not mean that we are out.
We still have breath in our lungs and tears flowing down - all signs that we are alive!
Take a deep breath and be reminded that often our biggest struggles are stepping stones to our greatest victories."
-Rae Smith
