Whirlwind of bad news

It's been a few crazy weeks for me! But I'm back!
Everything started when work decided to let go my relief person and change things around on me when we lost an account. Then I managed to get tonsillitis which kept me down and out just with no energy to do anything, specially after working for 8 hours. Just when I started getting better my world came crashing down with news that my grandfather was in the hospital, which his wife let the family know by e-mailing my aunt who rarely checks her e-mail! They put a pacemaker in which helped him and they released him the next night. So he's doing better which was a huge relief!
So now I'm working on keeping myself motivated because my goal is to loose 25 pounds by the time I go on vacation for Thanksgiving and be in a size 20 pants. I started my weight loss journey in a size 26, I fit into a size 22 this week and couldn't be happier. I signed up for two different BLC's for the fall which should hopefully keep me motivated and moving forward. If I slack someone yell at me and turn me back in the right direction please, feel free to mail me or message me if I fall off the wagon again.
Today I got the chance to watch my mom work, and it's awesome to see her working hard and being so proud of her job! She works for a pacemaker company and helps the cardiologist put the devices in. As I was sitting in the room waiting I was listening to her talk to a colleague about my weight loss journey. I never realized how excited my mom was for me on my success thus far until today. When we were leaving we ran into the lady she was talking to in the case, and she looked at me and told me that she could really notice that I've lost weight and I've done a good job and congratulated me on my journey thus far. It was a high moment when someone who doesn't see me often actually notices and tell me I look good. I have a lady who asks me every week how my diet is going, and I just keep thinking to myself, "it's not a diet it's a life style change!" But I stop and talk to her and tell her how it's going. But she tells me every time we talk that she's proud of me and congratulates me. I never knew how much pride I feel for myself when someone else notices my accomplishments, be it someone who doesn't see me every day to someone who sees me nearly 5 days a week at work. It still rocks!
I'm working for a better stronger me! And with all of you and everyone who tells me I'm doing great, even my personal trainer when he's making me work my ass off, I have the confidence to move forward and make this work. So thank you all for being there for me!
