So today is my birthday. As I look back on this last year today becomes a little bit more meaningful to me. A year ago today I was tired, extremely overweight, and I didn’t have a great outlook on life.
I celebrated my birthday with my husband and friends at one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago. But even a gathering of people that cared about me didn’t make me feel like celebrating. I didn’t want to take any pictures and was feeling so low I called it a night after dinner.
I wish I could put more time and distance between the person I was a year ago and the person I am today. Because today I feel happy. Today I feel like celebrating. I started my day with a great workout with friends. I got a facial and a massage and first the first time in a long time I didn’t feel self-conscious about what the technician thought of my body.
I picked up a small birthday cake from Sweet Mandy B’s for my husband and I to enjoy after dinner tonight. In the meantime he is indulging me in a couple’s pedicure so yes all in all today has been a good day.
I want to spend my next year of life continuing to enjoy this life. I still have a ways to go on hitting my goal of losing 100 pounds but it’s going to happen. Thank you for all of your support getting me here. I can’t wait to continue on this journey with you all cheering for me along the way.
