Happy Birthday to myself! Another year gone and another one waiting for me to make sense and meaning out of it! For the first half of last year, I didn't accomplish much but for the second half, I did pretty well. Up to today I am fitter than my early 30s with almost 20lbs lighter than beginning of 2010 and planning to go down another 10lbs by the end of this year.
What does birthday mean to me these days? It is definitely not a private and personal moment now as my kids are more excited to blow my candles and wake me up early in the morning to see them tearing up my present paper! But this year's birthday definitely meant something to me as I gave myself the best present ever by shedding my large size to almost small now! Metaphorically speaking, it is reversing my once tired and overweight body to a young and rejuvenated self! So, to celebrate, I opted for cupcakes instead of a large cake this year to spread my love around and hopefully keep me at bay with my calories and new mind and fitter body! But since it is my day, I will have more than 1 cupcake, a good filling dinner and a Boston Cream Donut that I have been yearning since I started my weight lost and which had been banned from me by my little cheeky son who said "Mom, you are running on treadmill and you cannot have Donut or share with me!" Oh ya, I am getting One all to myself today!
