Well today was one of the best days yet in this journey. Today I achieved my lifetime member status with Weight Watchers exactly 2 years to the Sunday that I started my journey with Weight Watchers online.
205lbs later and lighter, it feels fucking amazing! Sorry, but that is about the only way I can describe it. It’s funny, I was so nervous today. I knew I maintained the weight I needed to to get my lifetime but I was still so nervous to go to the meeting. I went to my meeting at Royal Roads and they were awesome to me. Coral, the leader, knew I was coming in today to get it recorded, so they made me feel awesome when I was weighing in and then again when the meeting started. Such an awesome feeling.
I had to leave my meeting early today because I had my first race for 2016. It was the Harrier 8km in Saanichton which is part of the VIRA series. I had a goal of sub 50 minutes, aiming for 48-49 minutes but I ended up smashing that and coming in just before the 45 min mark. I actually did a WAHOO as I crossed the finish line, I was so pumped that I was able to sustain a pace of 5:35 for 8 km. Such an awesome day!
After the race and post race awards my friend Katie took me for a late birthday lunch. No better way to celebrate a day like that but with someone who is also a Weight Watchers lifetimer and an avid runner. She totally gets me so it was great to sit down and really absorb my day. We had a great lunch at the Brentwood pub, I had never been there before, it was great food and an awesome view. Thank you Katie ❤
Once we said goodbye I got in my car to head home to celebrate my day with my family. As soon as I got in the car I started to cry, I cried most of the 40min drive home. I just can’t believe how far I have come in 2 years, blows my mind!
Looking forward to what 2016 has in store for me!
