Who Am I - Post eighteen

This is 1999, of course I am bigger!
I have now been married 1.5 years, have been in my position job 3 years!
We have purchased our first home.
Been pregnant once and lost that baby at 12 weeks.
The night before I left for this managers conference in Banff, I found out I was pregnant for the second time.

I had a great time in Banff, I was the only female manager in my zone, and I was great friends with the 11 male managers, they all took great care of me, and we had a blast.  We stayed at the Banff Springs Hotel for 3 or 4 day, and had lots of free time.  Unfortunatly because I was pregnant, there was not drinking, no hot springs, and no skiing.

Who Am I - Post seventeen

This was a very busy time in my life!
Therefore an easy time to let more weight pack on!
I was helping my sister-in-law to be plan their wedding, changing positions within Rogers which included a promotion and a lot more responsibility and planning my wedding.
When you are planning your wedding most people loose weight, I gained! In these pictures the difference in me is clear and I am starting to really notice and acknowledge it, but I still did not do anything to stop it.

Who Am I - Post sixteen

These are pictures taken at our friends cottage on Crystal Lake.
This is when I first realized that the weight was starting to pack on!
Did I do anything about it, NO, I had another drink and found ways to be hidden in pictures, so I would not have to face the reality of my weight gain!
Mistake #1!!!

My frind Donna who also made my wedding dress, made this beautiful short velvet dress for me. I have it hanging in my closet and will never part with it, even though right now I probably couldn't do it up around one of my legs.

Who Am I - Post fourteen

These are two of my very favorite pictures!

I was happy, healthy, worked out 6 days a week and actually felt beautiful during this time in my life.

The first one is of the day I reached my goal weight with Weight Watchers. I had spent the better part of a year taking off about 60-80 lb, I don't really remember now, and I was in the best shape of my life, and all of my eating disorder demon’s had been chased away.

The Second picture is of my husband of me at one of his dad promotion ceremonies for the Canadian Armed Forces, this is the only picture of us with my husband in his dress uniform.
