Feeling good!

It is crazy what losing weight and getting control over your life can do for someone’s self-esteem and confidence. I know I am not done or close to being at my ideal weight yet but man I feel good. This journey has been amazing so far.  I am down 108lbs and well on my way to making my next goal of 128lbs by Christmas.

This weekend I finally bought myself clothes, keeping in mind I am not done losing weight but I was so excited to some of the sizes I went down. I even had a size 18 pair of jeans on this weekend. I didn’t end up buying them because I liked a different style better which fit me better as a size 20 but I was pretty impressed with myself. The last time I bought clothes for myself I was a 4x or size 26. I am sporting a 1x and size 20/18! Maybe this was my last big shop at a plus size store? 🙂 Crazy!

We also went out and did a practice run for our Goodlife 8K Road Race this weekend. I did walk some of it and will probably have to walk some of it on Oct 12 but I managed to do a practice run in 1:08 hrs which makes my goal of doing it in an hour seeming very obtainable. I am really happy I ran the course, it settled my nerves a bit as I know that weekend will be fun but emotional. So many special people in my life are making sharing that moment with me a priority, I am just so touched!

It feels so good to walk into a room and not feel like I am invisible. People make eye contact and small talk. It is wrong that that didn’t happen when I was at my biggest but unfortunately that is society today. I am so excited for the future and can’t wait to get the rest of this weight off! Yah!

Anyway, I don’t have much to blog about right now but I wanted to share my weekend with you guys. ❤

I am a strong confident woman. I am a mom of 3 three amazing children, married to my BFF of 25 years, who loves weight training, yoga, hiking, cycling, and sometimes still the odd run. I am currently completing a MA in Interdisciplinary Studies with a specialization in Leadership in Organizational Culture at Royal Roads University, which will be completed in January 2020. I am currently working in higher education for BCcampus as a Project Manager for Collaborative Projects. I lead a coaching community of practice at my workplace which I developed as part of my Masters. I dabble a bit in coaching outside of work but will likely do more as I complete my Masters. I have big goals for myself, there are no limits to what is possible.
