Day 72 in my return to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom and my dear friend, Mickey
As I continue to fight this bug, it’s time to revisit why I started this blog…
I’m Donna and I have a delicious goal. I want to work to be healthier and in better shape for my trip to Disney World in October 2015. There. I’ve said it. It’s down in black and white.
I LOVE Disney World. I become a little girl again, and it is such a blessing to share this experience with my family. There are 6 of us…until the grand-babies start to come along. 🙂 My husband Mike, my son Jake and his wife Eliza, my daughter Emi and her husband James and me.
“You’ve got tons of time,” you think. But here’s is my dilemma. I am 58 years old and morbidly obese. If, I can’t turn myself around, then I will not be able to walk enough to truly enjoy the parks. I do not currently have the mobility, nor the flexibility, to become that Disney child again.
So here is my plan. I want to do one thing every day for the next 14 months to get ready for Disney World in October 2015. Today is Day 1, and I am starting this blog.
Can I do it? We’ll see. Maybe, by the grace of God and with some hard work every day, I can revel in each minute of our Disney vacation…
And so now, I am on my way. I’ve come so far in 71 days, and I have so-o-o far to go. My body is adjusting to the changes in diet and movement. It’s tired and sore and upset, but I will carry on.
Meet you at the Kingdom!
