Busy, busy and my birthday!

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

April, May and June are big birthday months in my very-close family! We get together for any excuse, and birthdays are no exception. I made it through three birthdays in April without going over my daily calorie limit! Last weekend was my babygirl niece's 1st birthday and we threw a huge party - and I managed to love every minute of the party, and skip on cake for the fourth birthday in a row! The very next day - this past Monday, was MY birthday. What a fantastic birthday - and what a fantastically supportive family I have! They made me a "cake" out of a fruit and veggie tray, with candles and all. They got me the Fitbit Zip that I have been wishing for since I started this journey, and an adorable little lunchbag for carrying my lunches to work (no more plastic shopping bags - yay!)

For anyone who is just starting out, look for people who love you enough be your cheerleaders along the way. It makes all the difference in the world.

I am one year older, and I feel 10 years younger. Loving life!
