A day of Never woulda thunk its lol....

Today has been a rather awesome day! I woke up half awake and jumped on the scale as is customary... Yes I am one of those people that weigh daily... It just keeps calling me.. anyway lol It said 262 today. That is a significant number for me because I haven't been that weight in oh 17 years and it marks 80 pounds lost while being a member of spark!!! I was super excited to hit that mile stone. It also means I am only 3-4 pounds from breaking into the 250's (less than 10 pounds to my first goal weight at that point) and losing 120 pounds total!! It feels so good to see the scale moving again after months of it staying the same!!!
The second huge accomplishment was my personal trainer asked me to accompany her to an event she was asked to speak at. At first I was shocked she had even asked me. I mean I don't see myself as a success story. Honestly the last few months I have felt like anything but one. She asked me to simply share my story and she has done so much for me over the past year there is no way I could turn her down.
So today was the day I was nervous. We were first to speak at the Luncheon. It was a luncheon of patient advocates at local hospitals and they wanted my trainer to speak on how being healthy could better serve them in their jobs. It was a little difficult to get up in a room full of strangers and tell them how bad you let your health get. How you dug your self in a 130+ # hole and at the time didn't see your self getting out of it. I just let them know that you can do it. and sometimes the greatest way to help others is to invest in yourself. I hope I did a good enough job. My trainer did excellent at following up that message on how health really can effect everything in our life and how being healthy enables us to do things we otherwise wouldn't be able to do.
Never would I have thunk it 14 months ago I would have assisted in giving a presentation on health and fitness. I didn't think I would be one of those people who could lose over 10o pounds..
Also on a lighter note I never thought I would wear a pink shirt. So in honor of doing other things I have never done I decided to wear one lol. Korina picked it out for me and I think I even like it lol.
This was just last feb.
