It’s my birthday….. I am 40 today! Eeeeeek!
4 years ago, I was 250 pounds and size 22/24. Heck, one year ago I was 200 pounds! Now, on my 40th birthday, I weigh 154, can jog a 5K, lift weights, fit into size 12 pants and medium shirts. I am more fit now than in high school, or any other time of my life! The best gift I could have given myself for today.
Had a wonderful dinner. We went to a New Orleans style bistro, which serves half portions of food (thank goodness). DH and I split a bowl of gumbo, which was delicious. Then I had a half portion of cochon au lait. You know that saying “Nothing tastes as good as thin feels”? I disagree LOL! This dinner was absolutely divine!
Then we got a small tiramisu cake to bring home. I did not want a large cake hanging around the house, so we got a small one. Again, very good. I have learned that you don’t have to go whole hog when celebrating. I had small portions of excellent food – and no guilt!
Still did my bowflex workout today, and took a 30 minute walk. No rest on the birthday!
