LOVE FOOD LOVE LIFE LOSE WEIGHT

I am a woman who has spent most of my life pursuing the dream of singing professionally. I've had many wonderful experiences, enjoyed some amazing opportunities, but blew many of my chances by my inability to quell my desires to over-indulge. With every passing year, I'm more and more aware of how important it is to take care of myself, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I love God and Jesus is my Lord and Savior. I sing His praises and worship with His people. I'm growing spiritually. ...
I am a woman who has spent most of my life pursuing the dream of singing professionally. I've had many wonderful experiences, enjoyed some amazing opportunities, but blew many of my chances by my inability to quell my desires to over-indulge. With every passing year, I'm more and more aware of how important it is to take care of myself, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I love God and Jesus is my Lord and Savior. I sing His praises and worship with His people. I'm growing spiritually. I've begun to eat REAL food - fresh homemade meals - lots of veggies and fruit and lean meats. My activity levels have increased and I've lost 86 pounds in 2 years. I'm eager to lose another 50 and I'm praying this site will help!

My Goals:
I have lost 86 pound in the last 2 years. My next goal is to lose another 50. At that point I may try for another 15 - but, we'll see. I also want to find a few more ways to burn calories. I love water aerobics - but, I'd like to start walking, too.

My Program:
My main focus here will be to keep better track of my efforts and to gain support - and perhaps inspire others. I am determined to lose weight without eating bland, boring foods. I am cutting out most all processed foods and I'm fixing my own meals from fresh foods. I eat lots of vegetables and fruit and only lean meats - but, I make my meals colorful, tasty and nutrient dense. I've gotten off track in the last few months - and I'm hoping being here will get me going in the right direction again.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in Southern California, so I believe I can officially count myself as a Southerner! I am a singer and in my heart of hearts, I would love to be singing full time. I've worked professionally, have my Actor's Equity Card (earned on Broadway in 1983) and as I lose weight and gain in energy and strength I hope to begin auditioning again in ernest. I am also a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant and I would love for you to register on my website: www.MaryKay.com/dawn.kehret

Other Information:
I love Jesus, my mom, my siblings, my niece and nephews, music, books, travel, Hawaii, cruising and making people laugh or smile. I have been technically unemployed since January of 2009 when I was let go in a company-wide down-sizing at Scholastic, Inc. I am self employed - and am still on the look out for a "real" job. Meanwhile, I am enjoying the freedom of working from home!

"Beautiful Woman Award"

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award. "Once you have been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3 you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it is good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out,"

Again, Congratulations Beautiful!
Thanks for spreading a little beauty, love, friendship and support into my life.
