trumpeter26's Journal, 31 December 2012

So the first half of 2012 started off just like any other year, overweight, gaining, depression, OCD, but April changed my life.

- 150lb weight loss
- Size 28+/3XL to 12-14/L
- Learned a lot more about myself than ever before and starting to feel more comfortable being me.
- Can go out in public without being embarrassed of my size
- Can go out to movies etc and fit in the seats
- Found positive, healthy communities of people
- Lifted some heavy heavy weights (265 deadlift as my max but gone down since losing so much more weight, 120lb clean and jerk, 90lb snatch), deadlifted some friends at parties
- 5 mud runs
- 2 5ks
- 10:21 mile
- Closer to a pull up
- RX 20" box jumps
- Double unders

Before my weightloss, I played an Easter service with all professional musicians where the year before, the trumpet player was Frank Kaderabek who was former principal trumpet of the Philly Orchestra, and one of the violinists plays with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra (which if you know me, I was obsessed for years).

So have a lot to live up to.

But I want
- Unassisted pull ups
- 8:00 miles
- 120lb snatch
- 145lb clean and jerk
- 10 mile run/half marathon
- Super Spartan
- Another 40-50lb weight loss
- A significant other who appreciates me and the journey I've been on


Liz - you totally rock it! I KNOW you will achieve the goals you desire. I just heard/saw TSO in St. Paul two nights ago! Crazy show! We were in row 30 and it was L_O_U_D !!!! and beautiful light work!
