Default It is my 40th birthday

and of all the goals I ever set, I thought (when I set it in January) that I cold do 40# by 40. Nope, barely 5. I looked back at a bunch of old logs and calendars and I have been within 5 pounds of my current weight for more than 4 years...since just after my last "baby". So this morning, as I really begin to think more about my health than appearance, I find that I have been taling NSAIDs for a few weeks because of some left hip pain. Hoe ridiculous is that? I need to get it together for real, and will make an honest attempt starting tomorrow morning ( does that sound lame? That I want to have dinner at my mom's first???)

Ok, more of an intro tomorrow, today, just a touch of whine.

Why don't you bring a huge, healthy, delicious salad to your mom's and make sure half of your plate is salad.

Start TODAY.

I see some very positive things in this post. First, you have lost 5 pounds since January. Losing 5 pounds is better than gaining 5 pounds, no matter how long it took! Your weight is going in the right direction.

"within 5 pounds of my current weight for more than 4 years" - You have been maintaining instead of gaining, which is something to be pleased with.

I know that you are not happy because you have not lost your 40 pound goal but you can't change the past, just the future. You have shown that you do have some discipline or you would have gained weight. Now, don't beat yourself up, just get going again. Lose that next 5 pounds! I look forward to a post telling us that you have done just that.

Happy Birthday! I turn the big 4-0 later this year. Not sure how I will handle it.

You can do it! Keep your chin up!

This is going to be YOUR year! Make CERTAIN of it. Make this the year that you grab control of your health. Make this the year that you accomplish something astounding. Make this the year to become the best you possible.

Being in the 40's and being fit is absolutely FABULOUS.

Be excited about the changes you are about to make. They're nothing to dread. The dread would be to stay overweight and not live up to your full potential. Discover who you were meant to be.

I look forward to hearing of your progress.
