I am on my way now!!!

I am starting a new era today. I am gonna do it. I am gonna loose weight and get more healthy. I am a strong believer in healthy eating. I don't do it as much as I should. I have read the books learned from nutritionist, and I do work in the dental field so have learned a lot about it with classes etc.

I got a treadmill, I did 1mile today. I went kinda fast so i had a good work out. Sept 5th is the start of the real diet. ( my whole office is doing it). I am gonna try to pig out a little this weekend..LOL

I am trying to loose 20-25 pounds. I am 155 now. I can't believe I am letting the whole world know that. I carry my weight in the tummy. I wish it were in my butt. I know this is important because, women & men who carry there weight in the belly area are more likely to suffer from a heart attack. Dr oz. talks about it online and he did a thing on O. Healthy eating is hard, we have fast food quick meal,, and carb city. I am NOT a fast food eater. I do love carbs and eat them often. My mom is a cook and is a country cook so we eat a lot of yummy stuff. She does most of the cooking for us.

My diet will be.. eggs for breakfast, cheese for snack salad with tuna for lunch and a normal dinner. I hope I can do this. I have tried and failed many many times. after my third son was born I really stopped eating the correct way and gaining weight. This is my before pic. I hope it helps you get on the healthy track..I will be posting my challenges, and turning points here.

This pic is from Oct. I can't find one with me now. I will take one on the 5th. This is me in Disney eating those famous mickey ears. I have waited my whole life to get this pic.. This picture is really bad. I am much cutter in real life...LOL I just want to prove to you that being healthy is possible.

I love the fact that you will be posting tips, and facts and things on your blog... what an awesome idea to help others...
I would like to eliminate a few food groups until Thanksgiving (kindof a long fast)...potatoes, cheese, desserts... There... I said it! And, would love to lose 15-20 lbs...but also know it took 9 years to add the pounds...

You can do it! Go Dawn! Go Dawn! Gooooooo Dawn!!!

I would love to get down to your weight, and have been doing lots better starting with my vacation and continuing since---I had a salad a day at least while in Israel and have been keeping that up since. And drinking lots of water. But its soooooo far to go for me. I am excited you're going to be posting tips and being encouraging, I need that!
