My Birthday

Monday, May 19, 2014

Yep, It is my Birthday....not quite sure how I feel about this one. I am 50......gosh that seems old.

my user name----lillyby50 was set up over 2 years ago as I wanted to hit my goal and be the new me by the time I turned 50. Didn't make it.

But what I have done is pretty darn good....

I am off of all 3 blood pressure medications.

I am off of the cholesterol medication. I still take the thyroid supplements, but I don't believe those are weight related.

I have lost 8.25 inches off my waist, 12.5 inches off my hips and 3.25 inches off my arms.

I went from not being able to walk down the block to going to five 60 minute fitness classes each week.

I can fit in the seats at my daughter's choir concerts and don't have to stand in the back.

I can fit in a booth and don't have to ask for a table.

I can get down on the floor and get back up.

I don't worry about falling down in public and how I will get back up.

I have lost 130 lbs.

It may not be where I wanted to be, but it is sure a WHOLE LOT better than where I WAS.

I am proud of me.

I may not hit goal by the time I turn 51, but I will be closer than I am now. I will be even healthier than I am now.

Here is to 50!!!....scratch that as I still don't like the sound of it.....but here is to a new year!!!
