I’ve been beating myself up the past little bit and feeling like I’ve let myself and those who care about me down. I had goals set and fully expected to have reached my 100lb weight loss by now but this past year has been a rough one for me with a lot of life changes; the biggest was losing my dad unexpectedly which led to me spiralling back into unhealthy food choices, sitting on the couch and a 20lb weight gain.
This past January I decided I wasn’t going back to my previous weight and lifestyle. Dad was so proud of my progress I wasn’t going to disappoint him and slowly I got back on track. Some days are harder than others but I’m learning again to go for a run or call a friend instead of heading for a drive thu and I’m happy to say I’m just below my weight from this time last year.
Being a part of Team Myles has been a great experience for me. The love and support from my team mates (friends for life) has helped me realize how far I’ve come, how strong I am and that its ok to cry. I know i’ll reach my goal. How long it takes doesn’t matter, it’s the lessons I learn on the journey that do.
