Happy to be here!

Hi my name is Rebecca A.  I'm so excited about being apart of the Christmas Crunch 2010.  It's just what I need to help me start loosing weight and being a healthier person.  My starting weight as of this morning is 221.5 pounds. This is my first time on Dani Joy website.

A little about myself:  I am 34 years old.  Married to the best husband in the world Marc.  We will celebrate our 11th Wedding Anniversary in November.  We have one child Josiah who is nine and in the 4th grade. I have been homeschooling Josiah from the beginning of his school education.  This year I came up with the idea to make a photo journal of our 4th grade homeschool year.  You can check it out on my blog http://rebecca-meaningfulliving.blogspot.com/.

A little about my struggle with my weight:  As a young child I was sexually abused.  At the age of 12 I was raped. Because of what happened I really hated my body.  I had a hard time looking at myself in the mirror.  I would never take care of my body.  I tried to ignore my body.  I even had some issues with self mutilation.  This continued into my marriage. Then I started going to counseling and started the healing process of my mind. Now I feel it is time for me to start the healing process of my physical body as well. I realized in counseling that it's not wrong to have a physically fit and attractive body.

My goals:
Exercise each day.  Eat healthier foods.  I don't have a goal weight. I had a physical last week and the paper the doctor gave me said I was obese.  I want to be able to see the doctor next year and not have the word obese written on the paper.

I'm really going to step out of my comfort zone and show you a picture of myself and my son Josiah that was taken last Monday October 11th.

Off to exercise!
