Yep, today's my birthday. I'm 44 today. Still way away from goal weight, farther than when I turned 43 unfortunately, but still trying, never giving up!
Sunday afternoon I had a birthday dinner at my in-law's : baked bbq chicken, fresh corn, greens, green beans, broccoli/cauliflower salad, green salad, rolls, and even had a slice of German Chocolate Cake, everything was really good.
Today I have already averted a near UNdiet day. My grandmother called wanting to bring me food. She's so wonderful, wanted to know what I wanted, but I told her I didn't want anything and to not go to the trouble ... I was back on my diet again. She understands that. :) She has brought me birthday cake, pizza or pot roast or whatever I wanted in the past, so it was tempting :) but... it's grilled chicken and salad today and no candy or cake but just my regular dark chocolate.
So, today is the first day of another year of potential to make it to my goal by the time I'm 45. That is my official long term goal... to be 145 by my 45th birthday, on that day I plan to be blogging the good news that I made it! :)
