Today marks the 2 year anniversary of me joining Weight Watchers. It has been an amazing 2 years!! I wasn’t going to blog at all while in Colorado, but I couldn’t help but recap the last two years.
Two years ago I was a 23 year old living alone in an apartment barely making ends meet. A girl who was sad and miserable due to a crappy relationship she had just gotten out of. One who was an emotional eater and ate 2 dozen cookies when that relationship fell apart. And a girl who had gained 40 pounds in that relationship.
I needed something to get my out of my funk…..anything. Little did I know that my mom would have the answer. She called me after her first Weight Watchers meeting and excitedly told me about it. She suggested that I join her at her next meeting, because she thought I would enjoy it too.
I went thinking that I had nothing to lose (except a lot of weight) and that maybe it would be the answer I was looking for. Thankfully it was.
I happily hopped onto the Weight Watchers wagon and fell in love with the program. You mean that I could eat whatever I wanted? No dietary restrictions? Sounded like major win for me and my lifestyle.
A lot changed that first year. I shed a lot of weight, started running, and gained a ton of confidence. Along with that confidence came a dating life, something I had never had before. I met a lot of
odd interesting guys, but none that totally sparked my interest. I decided to leave the dating scene for a while and just focus on me and losing weight. This was the first time in really long time that I felt like I didn’t need to be in a relationship to be happy. I loved myself and that was all that mattered.
After a few months of the single life, I decided that I would enjoy a guy by my side to experience all the amazing things in my life with. So, I put my profile up on a dating site and just left it at that. I didn’t do much searching, but one of the times I did I came across B-Fry’s profile. How could I not message a cute red-bearded guy with an adorable smirk? Well, I did just that. I wasn’t sure he would message me back because quite frankly I wasn’t quite sure I was good enough for him. But, he did.
We chatted for a bit until I worked up the courage to actually meet him. And believe it or not, I really wanted to back out of that first date. I was utterly nervous. But, I didn’t. I am so happy that I didn’t because it was the best first date I had ever been on. The conversation flowed nicely and he didn’t ditch me when I dropped a drink on myself. Oh and he totally won me over when we sat in his Jeep by the river, listening to music and chatting. The first date was quickly followed by a second the next night and a week later he was my B-Fry.
I couldn’t be more happy with him. He loves me for me, makes me feel incredibly beautiful, and is my perfect match. Things are exciting between us, we recently moved in together and this week we are on our first real vacation together in Colorado. He’s going to be the man I spend forever with and I couldn’t have picked a better guy.
So the first year was all about me and losing weight. This last year has been about falling in love with an amazing guy and not so much about the weight. The two years have been amazing and I can’t see what more life has to offer! It will be an amazing ride I’m sure.
