I did this challenge in 2014 and it was when I first started strength training.
Focus on inches.

~ 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.

I led an AA meeting this week.. The topic was Step Five. I just want to share again this powerful prayer hoping it blesses and inspires you as it does me.
Higher Power, thank You for helping me complete my housecleaning. I can now look the world in the eye. I can be alone at perfect peace and ease. My fears have fallen from me. I have begun to feel your nearness. I have begun to have a spiritual experience. I feel I am on the Broad Highway, walking hand in hand with the Spirit of the Universe.

In working Step Five I experienced a spiritual moment when I realized that if I keep people at a distance....not sharing my personal inventory of defects of character with another person... I also keep God at a distance. God is nearer to me than I think and I can experience Him by loving people and allowing people to love me.

I am so grateful to sober today and continuously working the Twelve Steps in all areas of my life I am so happy to have you as a SparkFriend. Your lvoe and support is truly appreciated emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

We must look inside ourselves to free ourselves. The issue of all growth is to make a change for the better and then to have an unrelenting willingness to shoulder the responsibility this entails (The Big Book,p.115).

Each day is an opportunity for personal growth. Self-esteem grows as we do in recovery. Without dreams and goals, there is nothing keep use moving forward. Out Higher Power accompanies us in our own personal journey each step of the way.

I am empowered to succeed because I realize there is power in powerlessness.

I hope you have a Sparktacular Week! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Courage is very important. Like a muscle, it is strengthened by use. A very dear SparkFriend this week posted on our Recovering Alcoholics team thread, Sobriety Blessings, this incredible reflection, "Sobriety has given me the courage to do the right thing in spire of my fear."

In my blog, Strength Training Builds More Than Muscle, I focused on having the courage to change our lifestyle and to reach our goals, our heart's desires.

Success is not final.
Failure is not fatal.
It is the courage to continue that counts.

Blessings today and always! emoticon

Courage is fear that has said its prayers!
