Happy Birthday to Me!

Thirty Seven. Today, I am 37 years old. Strange to be this close to 40. I don't feel 37. I still feel like I should be 25. Just in my head, though. My body feels 50 years old. I've carried too much weight for far too long. I have neglected my body and haven't taken care of it like I should have.

I'm not too sure what to say on my blog right now. I've looked back at old posts and realized how depressed and negative I became. I also noticed a trend. I would write for a bit and then I would fall of the face of the earth. If you pay close enough attention to the hiatuses compared to the "losing it" section (which turned into a "gaining it" section) you'll notice that as the weight went up, the hiatus would begin. I just felt like people who were searching for weight loss blogs to inspire them didn't want to read about someone gaining weight and where each entry was like a black cloud lurking in the near distance. I felt like I was writing the same song different verse over and over. But the other day my daughter sent me a picture (see below). And it made me realize that every time things don't go the way I want them to with my weight loss journey, I quit. So I decided, I can't do that anymore. Where do I want to be on my 38th birthday? 20 pounds heavier than I am on my 37th birthday? Hell no! So, hopefully, next year on my 38th birthday, I'll have a full year of blogs under my belt and hopefully I'll be small enough to be wearing a belt.
