happy birt....er. i mean new year!!
Monday, September 21, 2015
I always see Sept as a new year. For me, it is out with the old and in with the new, since it is my birth month. So many painful and bad memories associated with this month. But some good ones as well.
So, as this month comes closer to closing, I feel it hasnt been too bad overall.
I ate way too much last week and was feeling pretty down and discouraged. But I got on the scale, against my better judgment, yesterday and I havent gained.
So, all the fear and worry I had built up slowly seeped out of my pores and with a sigh of relief, I realized, I am even steven right now.
Still down 4 pounds from the first week of this month.
So, I let it all go and I start anew.
The month will wrap up with my visit to the doctor on the 29th, hopefully those 4 pounds will stay gone and I am hoping to send at least 2 more with them this week.
And the very last day of the month is my birthday.
No cake or big celebration planned. Just wish for good weather so I can walk that day.
And if I am asked what I wished for, I will say, many more, healthier birthdays to come.
I am really feeling good and optimistic today.
