In 20 months, I turn 50. REALLY??? HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?
I so clearly remember being in 5th grade, I can 'feel' being 16, it's just yesterday I was 21, and then 27 - and then 30 (bad year)...a few blinks and here I am. OK, I have to explain the 30 being bad - It's NOT being 30 that was bad. Our college dog died that year, my grandmother passed away 2 days after I turned 30, and my best friend was diagnosed with esophageal and stomach cancer 4 days after she turned 30. So, 30 was the year I 'grew up'. Since then, I feel like life has just flown by...and I've become someone I don't recognize (or much like) anymore. I want to be ME again. I want to have drive, determination - I want to WANT to exercise and sweat and get breathless as I work out.
SO - I don't want to turn my 1st blog into a novel. As I said, 20 months. SO - SURELY I can lose 20 pounds by the time I turn 50...Can't I???? 1 lousy pound a month. I CAN DO IT.
