Ok...so while I was out there I was thinking about how great I feel and how I should focus on this instead of the scale. Negativity just breeds more negativity and I want more positivity in my life....and then it HIT ME!
I will dedicate my weight loss journey to Isabella Dean (a.k.a Izzy). Izzy is a beautiful (almost 2) year old little baby girl (my friend's daughter) who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia about 20 days ago. She has been fighting this like a champ and is truly inspirational to all that are blessed with knowing her. I am part of the TEAM IZZY Fundraising team but I want to do more. I am a single mother and do not have a lot of money so it is hard to donate money when I have little of it but I came up with something that I think will be easy to do AND will hopefully inspire others to follow along and raise money for Izzy.
What is this epiphany you ask?
I am going to track my weight loss on facebook and on this blog. For every pound I lose, I will donate $1 to Izzy to help her fight Leukemia. I want to lose weight and I want to gain better health and what better way to be inspired and motivated than to think of that beautiful little girl while I do it.
