Dawn Gillman:Oolapalooza 2014 set a huge ball in motion for me in so many ways.  I wrote down a massive goal of a 40lbs weight loss this year and since that date I am already down 37lbs.  I was inspired by the Oolaseeker and another gentleman in the crowd that lost weight to write down a BIG number on my board and to Dream Big.  I let chronic Lyme disease and the loss of many babies from miscarriage hold me back and block success.  It takes loving yourself and keeping on and keeping on. Love takes discipline and patience and self control and I'm so grateful that I put myself on the docket to do it! I eat Paleo and I've been blown away by how great I feel, using young living oils and exercise. Another bonus in this is my hubby of 21 years was so attracted to my success that he said, girl tell me what I need to do.... He has lost 60lbs from his high weigh,t is sober and loving himself.  The joy that comes out of this man is a gift from God.  I'm down 50lbs from my top weight and so thankful for the life I've been given.  We own the Well in Dassel Mn and folks are coming to truth through our little town.  So happy and full of hope.  Thanks Oola dudes!”
