Happy 40th

Happy 40th birthday to ME!

Me in 2012

I clearly remember being 33 and wanting to lose weight but not wanting to put in the work that I knew weight loss would take. I remember thinking “Do I still want to look and feel like this when I’m 40?” That was one of the deciding factors for me that motivated me to lose weight NOW. What do I want to be like when I’m 40? If I keep doing what I’m doing today, where will I be in ten years? Am I okay with that?

Me in 2018

I am so incredibly glad I took the time and made the effort to struggle, to fail, to try again, and to succeed in getting healthier and thinner. I remember what it felt like to be very overweight and I prefer how I feel now. It was worth it. Now I’m 40 and I’m reaping the benefits of 33 year old me’s determination.

Way to go younger me! Happy birthday!

Do you have any milestones approaching? What are your dreams for that milestone?
