2010 In ReviewDecember 30, 2010
So it comes the time of year that I need to sit back and reflect on this past year - 2010. In so many ways, this year was amazing... I lost almost 38 pounds this year, I hit my Weight Watchers goal weight, and I made Lifetime! All amazing... but yet in a way unrelated to my weight, this year has been hard. We've had some unexpected things happen, and some personal things haven't gone the way I'd hoped. And especially in late November and December I have been feeling a little depressed as the days got shorter and shorter. All in all though, 2010 gets a grade of a B. While looking back, I too, look forward to have 2011 be an A+ year
The first 3 months of the year flew by... I was on a Weight Watcher's plateau during a lot of this time, so losing weight was HARD! In March I turned 33 years old, and I finally started losing weight again.
In April I started this blog as I - not only a non-runner, but a running hater - had just committed to running a 5k. Some wondered if I was crazy, some if I would make it. I'm almost ashamed to admit that I was among those some.
In May, I threw a pity party for myself after being rejected by Weight Watchers for their "Role Model of the Year Contest." I continued to train for my race, and I fit into a size 10 and a medium.
|108 lbs of food! And me 108 lbs lighter!|
As we leave 2010 behind, I am leaving behind nearly 40 pounds, but also as much negativity about myself and my life as I can. I am also leaving behind some anger. And I'm looking to really focusing on both my physical, but also my emotional health in 2011. I look forward to the new adventure that God has already planned out for me in the year ahead.
What are you leaving behind in 2010?
