~ I'm Dani, I'm 34 and I've been married for 13 years to my sweet-heart. Together we have 6 children.
My kiddos are girl (12), boy (10), boy (8), boy (6), girl (3) and boy (1)!! (they keep me busy but motivated!).

I'm a WAHM. (I am a photographer and run my own business).

I couldn't think of a better title then "becoming me." I have always felt like a thinner healthier person was beneath all these layers. Slowly I am piling away the layers to find the 'real me' beneath.

I've lost 57 pounds since I started my journey. I haven't always been perfect but I have always continued to take steps to improve my health. I've falling off the wagon a few times but have managed to climb back on.

~ What I've learned a long the way.

I've learned that staying active on SP is very important and to hold myself accountable.
I've learned that nobody can do this for me I have to do this for myself. I'm the reason I'm this way so it's up to me to fix it.
I've learned that weight loss is 80% how we handle what happens to us. And the choices we make when something unexpected happens.
I've learned that if you want to be successful you have to track EVERYTHING!
I've learned that having the right kind of positive attitude and perspective is extremely important.
I've learned that you have to want it more then anything else.
I've learned that you need to remember why you began your journey in the first place.

"I just realized that if I lose an average of 5 pounds per month between now and the end of may I would be in the 140s. Guess who has their 14 anniversary in June???? I could be lower then when I married my husband.

“Courage is not the absence of despair; it is, rather the capacity to move ahead in spite of despair.”
—Rollo May

Some days we wake up to overwhelming feelings that things look bleak. We see loss and danger around us, and we fear for the future. That is when our character is most tested. That is when we are called to continue to just put one foot in front of the other. There is no need to solve all our problems right away or to change the world immediately. Courage isn’t necessarily a feeling of confidence that we can triumph over all odds. It’s knowing that we can move ahead one step at a time, and it’s taking positive action in the face of our fears.
Each day we can do small things that are constructive. By these small things, we can place ourselves on the positive side of life’s equation. We can put our weight where we want to go. That is courage.
Today, in the face of my despair, I will focus my efforts on the side of my hopes and values


I just wanted to share my morning devotions with you today

When you make a change, you make a difference.

emoticon Every transformation starts a dream.

emoticon Goals give you the ability to be self-directed and in control.

emoticon You have the power to change, and no one can take that
away!

emoticon Life gives you the choice...either learn to overcome
challenges or succumb to them.


emoticon Your success is giving others hope they too have the
power to change.

The more we work together, the more we can succeed! emoticon

Sometimes the healthiest thing I can do for myself is to admit that I am not perfect. I am human. I make mistakes. Today I will have the courage to look the truth in the face, admit my errors and achievements, appreciate my growth. and make amends where I have done harm. I will not attempt to manage or control what is beyond my powers. I will dedicate myself to managing my own life, and only mine.

There is only one corner of the world you can be sure of improving.and that is your own self.

As I look at my fitness, nutrition and personal goals, I seek progress not perfection. I admit I am not perfect, but I am making positive changes and I rejoice in my growth as I seek to eliminate my character defects. Strength comes from facing adversity and not giving in, not surrendering, not giving up.
