Hello!
My name is Josie, and you are welcome here!

My goal in life is to live vulnerably, authentically, and joyfully, knowing that belonging is something that is not negotiated with the world. Who I am is where I stand, and it is sacred ground. I will not compromise who I am to please others or fit in. I belong to myself above all other people. Belonging in a community is a wonderful thing, but I also know there will be times when I will need to stand alone. (I learned this from Brene' Brown's books.)

That said, it is a journey. This is something I am learning to do, and I will practice it until it becomes most natural to me. Then I will keep practicing it for the rest of my life.

I believe that if I focus on being exactly who I am, standing my ground according to my values, all the rest, including my weight, will fall into place.

"I came naked from my mother's womb, and I shall have nothing when I die. The LORD gave me everything I have, and they are His to take away. Blessed be the name of the LORD." Job 1:21

Other Information:
My WHY for Losing Weight

1. Why is losing weight important to me? Losing weight is important to me because being obese steals my ability to move freely and be healthy.

2. Why does that reason matter? It matters because if I can’t move freely and be healthy, I can’t be my best.

3. Why do I feel strongly about that reason? I feel strongly about this because I have been lost for so much of my life. Losing weight is part of finding the true me.

    Just read one of your blogs from an email back in December. I am so very skip and miss with trying to stay focused on Spark mail, tracking, information to help me become healthier.
    Your words were an inspiration to me - thank you for sharing your journey and encouraging me to simply 'stay with it'.

    Keep telling yourself everyday during Team Challenge #13
    "Today is going to be a great day. I can handle more than I think I can.
    Things don't get better by worrying about them. It's not good to be down.
    I can be satisfied if I try to do my best."
