2011 was a BIG year for me. It’s crazy to look back and see how many great things happened for me this year, and that all my hard work actually started paying off! It’s also hard to believe that this will be the last post of 2011… the new year is so close!
Some highlights from 2011 include…
I hit my goal weight.
Two years, two months, and nine days after joining Weight Watchers on March 3, 2009.
I made Lifetime at Weight Watchers.
I started working as a receptionist for Weight Watchers and also trained to be a Leader.
I’ve led two meetings so far and should be up and running with my own meeting early next year!
I had my first speaking engagement at the Healthy Living Summit.
I got a promotion at my day job in August after two and a half years at my company. Woohoo!
I ran my second half marathon and shaved 5 minutes 32 seconds off my time from my first half.
I appeared in two magazines, one big local magazine and a national one!

I feel so lucky to have had so many great things happen this year, and I want to say a HUGE thank you to each and every one of YOU for reading, commenting, emailing, and tweeting me while I change and evolve and go through this journey called life. I am so excited to have a platform to share my successes and struggles, and the fact that people actually come here to read about it still blows my mind! I am so grateful!
