Blog to Lose

No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!

Today is my birthday--I turned the big 3-5. Honestly, I never really understood the big freak out about getting older, but maybe that's because I feel like I am getting better with age. Haha. At 35 I am more confident in my own skin, feel strong and capable, and like where I am in life. I have an amazingly supportive husband and 2 great kids (that only drive me crazy some of the time. lol). Sure, there are always things that could be better, but I am living a pretty blessed life.

In the the picture on the left I was 30 years old and had just had my first kid a few weeks earlier. I had no idea how to be a mom (and still feel like that some days) and I was totally uncomfortable in my skin. Although I was active in sports growing up, it had been a LONG time since I had exercised and I knew I wouldn't be able to keep up. The picture on the right was recently--65-70 pounds down depending on the day and today I sprinted around the park playing tag with my 4 year old son and (almost) 2 year old daughter. Life isn't always perfect, but it is pretty sweet.

Happy Birthday to you. 35 is young. You really have gone through some serious changes huh? But you are blessed. A great family & hitting your healthy goal. I am glad you're still around here telling us all about maintenance.

@Erica--my husband's is on Monday (he will be 36)! We have SO many February birthdays in my family. Just trying to hang on tight with all the celebrations. Then in March--Disney! My head is spinning just thinking about the food there. Thank you for the birthday wishes--I hope your day is great as well!

Are you doing a Disney run? I know they have races there often. If your kids like fish, take them to Discovery Cove. My friends with kids tell me they absolutely love that place. I was fond of Sea World.
