Revisiting the Start

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!
