A Quick Review Of My Past Decade - Goodbye 20's!

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

This blog really has little to do with weight loss. Just feeling nostalgic with it being my 30th birthday - the end of a decade, my 20's are over. So I'm going to do a quick review of my 20's!

2001 - Turned 20 - weighed about 150-160lbs, lost my Poppa to cancer, moved to Banff (AB) and Chilliwack (BC) before coming home again to Ontario (10lbs heavier), decided to go back to school - applied/accepted for Office Administration

2002 - Started college, reconnected with the love of my life - now hubby and spent EVERY possible moment with him

2003 - Graduated college with honours, had an ectopic pregnancy (gained 30lbs!), started living with my man, my stepson started visiting us at our home, became engaged, and pregnant, reconnected with my best friend after a few years apart

2004 - Got married, had my first son

2005 - Back to work for 6mths at a call center job I hated, got pregnant again, trip to BC

2006 - Bought new van, had my 2nd lil' boy, back to work early at a new job (current job), started court proceedings for custody of stepson, became an aunt, joined SparkPeople

2007 - Court done - joint custody agreed - stepson came to live with us full time, saw 1st Incubus concert

2008 - Family vacation to Manitoulin Island, my sister got married, my first pedicure

2009 - Saw Incubus in concert, became an aunt again, first MLB Jays game

2010 - Car accident, climbed the CN Tower stairs for the 1st time, became an aunt, winter Olympic fanatic

2011 - 2nd CN Tower climb, lost 47.4lbs! Ran first 5k, saw Incubus/Foo Fighters/Linkin Park in concert

And of course busy being a mom and wife doing all the crazy family stuff - holidays, birthdays, Christmases, sports, swimming, extra cirriculars... Life has been good to me.

I was going to post a 2001 picture of me and a 2011 picture - but I can't find one from 2001! I'll work on this.
