Wow Blog! Where have you been? More like where have I been? There's a lot to talk about so let me recap the past few months and we'll go from there. I've battled multiple injuries and illnesses which has been killer on the weight loss, in fact it's really made me quite lazy about it all and it's show on the scale. Good news is that I'm finally getting healthy again and back on the path I've created for myself.
Next is I have a new job working for the American Sociological Association which I love! I was in a really unhealthy work environment and it took a lot for me to realize I needed to get out. I quit my job without another prospect and was hired at ASA within 48 hours... talk about the universe coming through! Now one of the biggest changes has been that not only have I finally come out as a lesbian to everyone in my life, but I also found someone.. and we're ENGAGED!!!
Now I'm going to obviously post more on this but if you've read my "looking for love after weight loss" article on Patch, you'd know that I had very specific things I was looking for in a partner and I found them! She's lost 80 lbs in the past year, is passionate and supporting and inspiring. Our engagement also means that in the past few months I've moved and wedding planing is in full swing. As a couple, we are training for the Disney Marathon together with Team in Training and the words GO TEAM have become a part of our every day vocabulary.
In other news, I am also now a performance artist as a Drag King with the DC Kings! My stage name... Brock Lee! No, seriously! I love it. It's a blast and I look forward to every performance each month. My fiance just started Kinging with the DC Kings too so I guess you could said we're keeping it in the family! And most recently, I just found out that I've been selected for the 30 under 30 LGBTQ edition of Professionals Magazine! Ok I know that was a lot but life is moving fast these days so don't blink if you wanna keep up!
