I celebrated my 38th birthday on 2/22/2013 and had the absolute best birthday weekend ever. I don't usually do much of anything for birthdays, but this one felt special because I'm truly embracing life. So I literally celebrated Friday through Sunday. I ate what I wanted (but watched how much I consumed), went out to eat a few times and even had birthday cake. However, the best birthday present was when I got on the scale this morning, and it showed that I still had a 1.8 lb loss for the week. God is good, and I thank Him for giving me wisdom. I am truly in the lifestyle phase where I try to have balanced eating and consistent exercise. It's WORKING!!!!

This weekend also featured a non-scale victory. This picture is taken from the first open mic that I've ever participated in (2/24/24 at Gallery Bohemia). I did two of my poems. The awesome thing is that this shirt is a 14/16W from Ashley Stewart and the pants are an 18W. woohoo!!!!!
