A New Year, a New Me


January 2012




December 2009

As you can see, quite a change! I've lost almost 60 lbs in the last year, 18 in the last two months working the personal trainer. Life is so much easier and better with out that extra weight! Still have some work to do but well on my way. Keeping everyone happy and healthy. Hope your year is off to a great start too!
Hugs,
Dawn

Hi Dawn,
Wow, you look great!Good for you! I know how hard it is. I have lost 25 this past year, but keep playing with 3 of them up and down. I still have 35 more to go, I hope this year it all comes off. I sure the kids keep you really active too.
I love your new blog look..I'm working on mine too.
Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

Dawn,

You look marvelous but I am happier knowing you feel better! Taking care of oneself is so important -- not just for us, but for those we love. It has a trickle effect and the positive influences every part of our lives. What an achievement! You go girl!

Love,
Deborah

Wow! What a way to start a new year! You look AMAZING! And like Deborah said, the best part is that you feel it!

You know, you've always looked younger than your age to me, but this "new you" looks YEARS younger.

You know Mama Cow's always had a little pooch around his middle, but as we've aged I've actually started to worry about that pooch and its health implications. So back in September he started his first "diet" ever. (Really not a diet, just a change in eating habits.) And he bought himself a eliptical (sp?). He's lost thirty pounds!

He says he feels sooo much better now. He went to fight a fire recently and came home (at three in the morning) talking about how good he felt. lol!

Anyway, I am so happy for you. May this year continue to bless your health! Anna

WOW Dawn, congrats! You look fantastic, but the best part is that you feel great. I want and need to lost weight, because I know that's where my foot pain is coming from. I just need to get myself in the right frame of mind I guess. You're a real inspiration for me, and I wish you continued success!

You should be so proud that you had the strength and courage to accomplish your goal. You look and sound wonderful. I haven't been by to visit for a long time but I thought of you this week. I had a Valentine dinner and brought out the placemats you sent me a long time in a give-a-way. Just wanted to say how much I still like them and glad they brought thoughts of you. Stella

Dawn..you look absolutely beautiful. I saw a photo of you on face book and just thought it might be an older photo..but I did notice you looked different. YOU DID IT! I am so happy for you. I know how hard it is. My granddaughter is going through it. I need to make some life changes too because it is going to cost me my life if I don't. I am soooo happy for you!! :)
Love and a huge hug!
