4 years – geez, time flies

Today is exactly 4 years since I started my weight loss journey and I’ve got mixed feelings about the time that has passed.

Looking back is full of emotions – sadness and disappointment that I was that way previously, but then I’m overwhelmed with happiness with how far I’ve come and what massive changes I’ve made to my life.

So many people have supported me along my journey, from my new fitness buddies, through to my trainer, my flatmates past and present plus the newest addition to my life, you are all very special to me and I’ll never take your support for granted. I know I’ve been the one doing the exercise and eating clean (mainly…) but without you, I wouldn’t have got this far. For those that have commented on my blog, cheered me on from the sideline or just listened to me prattle on about food and my latest adventure, I thank you for being part of my life.

Highlights include, and in no particular order…

  • Taking part in mud runs and other events with my equally idiotic mates
  • Being told I’m “looking awesome”
  • Supporting others on their journey
  • Dead-lifting my own body weight (recent achievement)
  • Realisation that that being a bit crazy is a good thing

I won’t stop talking or doing what I do, as I love it and I am fascinated by what happens when I make my body do things that my mind questions as achievable – I’m excited for my future and what awaits me around the corner.
