Goodbye to 2010

It’s harder to wish in the new year tonight than it was last year. Last year was all about the progress that I was going to make and looking ahead. This year is more introspective. Looking at the progress and success from 2010. I can’t help wondering what 2011 will bring that can possibly top reaching a healthy weight for the first time in my life? Completing a triathlon? Running a 5k?

Here are some things from 2010 that I say goodbye to tonight, with the pledge that I will never experience them again:

– Weighing over 200 pounds

– Wearing a size that starts with X

– Dumping because I don’t know what my limits are after WLS surgery

And that’s it. I can’t think of another thing about 2010 that I’d change.  It was a pretty amazing year. So goodbye to one of the best years of my life. It gets to live there with these big years:

– 1981 – Graduated from High School – went off to Yale

– 1984 – Study Abroad in London

– 1986 – Graduation from Yale (really Dec 1985, but ceremony in 1986)

– 1995 – Met Fred

– 1998 – Married the love of my life

– 2002 – Our Son Jacob was born

– 2006 – Goodbye to PCOS forever

– 2009 – WLS Surgery

– 2010 – Healthy weight reached (and long list of athletic accomplishments)

So whatever 2011 has to offer, I’m ready for it. Bring it on!
