Default I'm having a moment....rambling...

OK, so I just got off the phone with one of my good friends. She called to wish me a happy 40th and as I'm the youngest of all of us I got the whole "you're 40 now, over the hill, yadda, yadda, yadda" stuff. Cool, no problem, we were laughing together. But then I started thinking. Wow. I'm 40. When I was 38 and 8 months old I sat at this same computer crying thinking my God, I've got to do something. Anything. What I wouldn't give to be healthy by the time I turn 40. Look at me now! I actually achieved that tremendous dream I dared to dream less than a year and a half ago. Here I am, on my 40th birthday, sitting at the same computer and crying again. Happy tears this time, because I did it. I reached my goal. I exercise almost every day. I have the energy of a 20 year old again, and I feel good....better in fact than I've felt on the last 10 birthdays. What a difference 16 months can make in your life. Oh, dear, better go fix the makeup before somebody sees me!

Wow! Boaterswife! I know exactly how you feel. I am 38 and the
same thing happened to me. I (like you) feel better now at almost 40
than I did 10 years ago. Go out and have a great Birthday and celebrate
your accomplishment!!!!!

This is what's so great about this forum. Somebody right now is where you were more than a year ago and feeling the way you did. They get to read posts like this one that give people a lot of hope. Needing to lose so much is so overwhelming that hearing the success stories can make all the difference in getting started.

Hope it was a fantastic birthday.

Simply Amazing. Yes!!! You did it! You DID it. You really, really did it. Anything is possible when we set our minds to it. Congratulations and thank you for sharing your thoughts. Not only did you "do it", imagine how many people you just may have inspired to "do it as well"?
