I have done lots of things I have been proud of over the years. I find it very difficult to toot my own horn normally. I usually like to sit in the background and help others meet their goals. I’m just that kind of person. I don’t need the spotlight shining brightly upon me to be happy.
That being said, I am pretty darn happy with the life choice I made that took me to the biggest personal achievement of 2010. In fact that personal achievement meant losing a lot of myself. Well in a physical sense anyway. You see over the course of nine months I lost about 45 pounds. Never before in my life had I been able to take off so much weight. The best part of it was that I didn’t do it through some special program. I didn’t buy any pills or powders. I didn’t starve myself. All I did was watch the calories I took in. I go into much more detail on the journey to get there in an earlier blog post.
I was sifting through the pictures of the holiday season we just experienced and was quite shocked at what I saw. I never realized how FAT I was until I lost the weight I had carried around for years. Not a day goes by now where someone sees me and comments about how good I look. Talk about a motivator. I actually had difficulties finding nice things to wear over the holiday because I have lost so much weight that nothing really fits me well in anymore. It was frustrating, but in a good way.
