My 31st Birthday

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

So, today I turn 31. I am not really sure when this know growing up and being in my 30s and all! Last year when I turned 30 I vowed that I would make all the changes to be healthier and lose the weight I needed to. Here I sit turning 31 still struggling with the same 10 pounds I was dealing with last year. I could sit here and be upset and mad at myself for not following through. Which I a point. I think I have a right to be a little upset with myself for not getting my crap together. However, this birthday is different. Why? Because instead of eating a calorie filled dinner with cake I will be at the gym taking my Get Fit class and going to Zumba. Since October I have worked to make the changes I vowed to make back in March of 2012. I have been a member of Sparkpeople since April of 2012 but only recently have I been using the site like I should to get the most out of it. A switch has flipped and the lightbulb is on and I have momentum I haven't had in a long time. I may not be getting the results on the scale I want but I know I am making the changes I need to make and the scale will catch up.

Here is a silly picture of my hubby and I...and his duck face!

    Happy, happy birthday!!!! I am so proud of you! I remember thinking when I was 29 that I would lose all my weight before I turned 30! Well, here I was in my 40's still trying to lose! I think if I had found Spark People when I was your age, I could have done it! You are in a great place in your life and you have all the tools in place to accomplish your goals!!! Enjoy your 30's!!! It is a great place to be!

    Good for you! I know I am struggling but have stayed here which I have not done on WW or TOPS. This is the place to be! We can do this. I like the comment of the lightbulb is on!
