So here we are at the end of the 10 week challenge. I had a goal of loosing 10 pounds and I did not meet that. But I have really come to the realization that loosing 10 pounds in 10 weeks is a really hard thing for me and for my body. So perhaps that goal was a bit too lofty. I have lost weight. And for that I am proud and happy. But not lucky. I have worked at it. I have done some things right in order to loose the weight. I am happy if I can loose .2 pounds every week. It is not a lot but it works for me and by the end of the year I'm down what? 10 pounds, a bit more? I'll take it!!
I learned a great deal from my team co-leader. What a wonderful teacher and inspiration she was to me. I'm so glad that our paths have crossed. I really love being a team leader but felt that in the past my leadership was lacking and in turn our teams were not as cohesive a unit as they could be. I have learned so much about the logistics of managing the team, setting up the team page and just being a good supportive leader. I feel like I can take so much of what I have learned forward with me to future teams but also into my "real" world life where I am also working on leadership. Thanks Suzie!!!
I feel like in the last 10 weeks I have come to terms with some of my food issues. I had a goal of tracking my food more consistently and I have not done that. I am still working on it. But, I also have faced some issues that I was in denial about or refusing to really look it. So I feel like it has helped.
I have taken charge of some personal goals. I got the information I need to put in my application to go back to school for my administrative credential. I have worked on my leadership skills. I started doing some interval runs.
I feel really good about the last 10 weeks. Do I wish I were 10 pounds lighter. Yes, I do but I'm happy where I am and ready to take on the next chapter!
