A Wonderful Day

On January 6 I started my own weight-loss challenge. I challenged myself to lose a pound a week, which would total 13 pounds by my birthday. Well...today is my birthday! I stepped on the scale this morning and am happy to say I have lost a total of 12.4 pounds!!!!! This is so close to my goal and I am just thrilled!!!

I went shopping this morning with some birthday money and was so happy to be buying a size smaller than before I lost the weight. It was so much fun! I will post some pics of what the kids got me as soon as I get myself organized.

The running forum that I am a member of started a biggest loser challenge 2 weeks after I started my own challenge. I joined the team challenge, which continues until May. The bad news is that tomorrow is my weigh-in day for that and I had a lovely birthday dinner and dessert tonight. :( I will have to get started working that all off....tomorrow

Yay!! What a nice birthday present... one you worked hard for! Congratulations & happy birthday! I hope you enjoyed the day and didn't worry too much about what you ate. :)

Good luck on your weigh-in. I'd be willing to bet you'll be pleasantly surprised!

Hey, Sarah!! I hope you have a great birthday. I wish someone would buy me Godiva chocolates!! Think you could have a talk with MJ about that? I know what you mean about the age thing. This is my last year in my 30's and I am so unhappy about the idea of being 40. Ugh!! I told the kids that I was running away from birthdays from now on! They looked at me like I was nuts.

Congrats on the weight loss! Losing one pound a week is the perfect way to lose weight as that weight will tend to stay off! Those who lose too much weight too soon tend to gain it back quickly and then some) due to the body thinking it's in famine and then stores fats for survival. I believe you tricked your body that you're not starving and should be able to lose even more weight. What a great birthday present for yourself!!
