Hello Everyone :-) This a very special week for me!
I am holidays for my birthday week...yes I put aside a week not just a day...LOL :-)
I spent my birthday up one of our local mountains...what a beautiful view. I love it hear in BC you can be up in the mountains then down enjoying the sea all in the same day...going from cold to hot :-) Gorgeous out fantastic weather to see all the sights and views. ( I was going to post pictures but my daughter didn't send them to me yet...so they will follow)
This was the first birthday in over a decade that I wasn't bigger than the year before! I am so happy it's a big change for me...and I have to thank my blogging community, the support, information and how everyone shares their experience and knowledge has really help make the change for me. It has made a HUGE difference for me.
Thank You All!!
For the first time in years I have made changes in my mindset; I see it all so differently. I see and accept that it is a lifestyle. I am also accepting that for me; this is necessary for my health. I get it now, and the big change is that 'I am happy with it'. I no longer feel like it just me being singled out and restricted. Before it was always in the back of my thoughts that it was a punishment that I wasn't allowed the food I thought I loved...so I want them more :-) and I felt I deserved to eat whatever I wanted and got very angry at anyone who said differently. I guess I made the 'mental switch' Finally :-)... and I am going forward fine tuning along the way to what my body needs to be healthy, strong and energized.
It's been a good year! I survived the ups and downs and made a big change in my life...kicking and screaming but change just the same :-)
Cheers! and Hugs! to All :-)
