Day after birthday

Saturday, June 27, 2009

Well
I celebrated my birthday by birthday by going to the theatre followed by dinner.
The play was funny, the food was fine and I felt pretty good. Family and friends came too. Really good part was buying some clothes 6 sizes smaller than I would have bought this time last year. Had clothes buying down as one of my rewards for maintaining the healthy lifestyle but I kept deferring it because of a very tight budget. This is better than impulse buying for every 10 pound loss. It meant I keep going - keeping my eye firmly on the more important goals - staying on track. emoticon emoticon emoticon

It was lovely getting all the goodies and birthday wishes from people in my teams. Thank you everyone

    Happy Birthday for the other day

    Happy Birthday to the new you.....6 sizes down, emoticon

    I can remember back when I finally gave in and went to buy a decent bra.....recommended then by 'then gym trainer' and was gobsmacked when she suggested an 18......tried it on and she "nope, that's tooooo big.......I just go a 16"............

    i must have had my jaw in dropped down mode.....she came back we duly fitted into the 16!

    at which point she said "oh what size was that other one.....you look shocked?"

    me: 22.

    now after still a few years I'm still proudly in a 16! emoticon

    Hi! Happy Belated Birthday!!! You share the day w/my now 23yr. old DD. Sounds like you had a great day. Pretty impressive going emoticon six sizes. What play did you go see? The place that I work-host a Dinner Theater for a couple weeks over the summer--I love to watch them. This year it is "Nunsense"--sounds like it will be funny. Keep up the good work!!
