Reflecting on 50 and my progress!!!

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Today is the day I celebrate the 50th anniversary of my birth! It has been an absolutely awesome day, filled with lots of phone calls, messages, cards, and hugs! I am so blessed with my life and all the wonderful people who God has placed in my world!!!

When I joined sparkpeople a little over a year ago, my goal was to be at my desired weight prior to my 50th birthday... which I didn't achieve... however I am not disappointed in myself or my progress as I have done amazing and know that I will get there... in due time!
When I first started my journey to become a better/healthier me, I weighed in at 281.7 pounds, when I joined sparkpeople I was down to 260 pounds and am currently weighing in at 185.6 pounds... :)

    Hi there! I turned the 5-0 number in November, and I did NOT make my goal either.
However, to encourage you...
FIRST: you've come a LONG way in the journey of health! (That's almost 100 pounds and that is super awesome that you've sent that much packing!)

Secondly, you have a whole year of "50" to still meet your fit by fifty goals! (At least that is helping me with perspective.) So keep on keeping on!!

Think of all the good things you've been learning and doing for your body! You are definitely working on making this a healthy journey as we go from day to day, and week to week--keeping our eyes on the goal(s) and pressing forward!

Happy Birthday! and Congratulations! on your significant accomplishments!

Back to Work...

Monday, March 12, 2012

Well, after relaxing my diet for the BIG events this week-end, it's right back on track today! No, I didn't completely throw my plan out the window just pushed the enveloped of what I allowed myself to eat... I actually ate some of my birthday cake Saturday night, but... this is life and meant to be enjoyed...
This is the last day of our spring break and I'm going to start it off right by heading to the gym...

Suprise 50th Party

Sunday, March 11, 2012

Last night I thought I was going out with some of my gal pals to celebrate my 50th birthday, which did happen, but the evening ended back in Dexter where my family and friends were waiting to surprise me with an awesome early 50th birthday party! I was totally surprised and had a wonderful evening! Thanks to my husband, children and friends for such an awesome surprise!!!!

Just wanted to share two new pictures of me... the last ones I posted were taken in Oct. and I've lost 21 additional pounds since then.

Also a photo of my newest grandson and his big brother!
