" Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, she became a butterfly."

I am a woman on a mission to be responsible for my own life, my own journey. I need to be accountable to me , for me ..it is mine to own.

I am learning so much on this Journey and I am Changing everyday in so many ways. Today I change my page a little to reflect the Change in ME !!

This is about so much more than the weight and losing it. IT is about Growth and Healing...Letting GO of some and Gathering in those that inspire, help, love and want the very best for you .

Truly learning every single choice is mine to make and own.. I choose what I let control me or not.

Nov 2013...

I have lost slowly , and learned alot along the way. I did not put this weight on overnight .I am happy to have lost weight this year and to have kept it off. I will take it one pound , one healthy choice at a time.

This is about something I can do and "live" with every day. Thanks for your contributed love and support. It truly takes a village to even lose weight.

I may do the work but we all need support , encouragement , education to keep moving forward.

hugs , love and light to you all,
Dawn

I tried to climb the mountain today. As I inched my way up the path, I felt out of breath and had to turn back.
I tried to climb the mountain today. But, It was so hot outside, I thought I had better stay in my nice air-conditioned house and rest up for tomorrow's attempt.
I tried to climb the mountain today. On my journey, darkness started to fall and I was full of fear, so I had to return to a safe place.
I was ready to climb the mountain today. But I had so may other things to do, so instead of climbing the mountain I took care of the much more important tasks; I washed my car, mowed the grass and watched the big game. Today the mountain will have to wait.
I was going to climb the mountain today. But as I stared at the mountain in all it's majestic beauty, I knew I had no chance of making it to the top, so I figured why even begin trying.
I had forgotten about climbing the mountain today, until an old friend came by and asked what I was up to lately. I told him about all my plans to climb that mountain someday. I went on and on about how I was going to accomplish the task.
He stopped me and said, "I just got back from climbing that mountain. for the longest time I told myself I was going to try to climb it but never made any progress."
"I almost let the dream of making it to the top die. I came up with every excuse of why I could not make it up the mountain, but never once did I give myself a reason why I could. One day as I stared at the mountain and pondered, I realized that if I didn't make an attempt at this dream all my dreams would eventually die."
" The next morning, I started my climb. It was not easy, and at times I wanted to quit. But no matter what I faced, I placed one foot in front of the other, keeping a steady pace. When the wind tried to blow me over the edge, I kept walking. When the voices inside my head screamed, stop! I focused on my goal, never letting it out of sight. I kept moving forward. I could not quit because I knew I had come too far to stop now. Time and time again, I reassured myself that I was going to finish this journey. I struggled mightily to make it to the top, but I CLIMBED THE MOUNTAIN."
"I have to be going," my friend said. "Tomorrow is a new day to accomplish more dreams. By the way what are you going to do tomorrow?"
I looked at him, with intensity and confidence in my eyes, and said, "I HAVE A MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB."

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time. This expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.
Martha Graham

I am leaving SP the end of the week. Met my 50 pound goal and want time to pursue other interests! I'm doing well and hope that you are too!

Weight loss is NOT a physical challenge, it's a MENTAL one.
