My birthday and being motivator of the day. (pics too)

Saturday, January 22, 2011

Wow...I'm 40. I'm 40....I'm 40 years old....ME? REALLY?

It's not as bad as I thought it would be. Many moons ago I set a small goal to be healthy weight by the time I was 40. I surpassed my wildest dreams. Not only am I a pretty healthy weight, but I got healthy in the process. Doing it the right way, eating right and exercising and just basically changing my life for the better.

It was TRULY an honor being motivator of the day on my 40th birthday of all days. I've met so many people on this site that have inspired me SO MUCH. To give back, just a little bit of what this site and its members have given me, is truly an honor and I thank yall for the privilege.

Thanks SPARKPEOPLE and all the people that truly sparkle on this site...my spark friends!

    Happy Belated Birthday! And how wonderful that you are entering your 40s with great health and a terrific attitude! I've been needing inspiration, and so I went back and reread ALL your blog posts...and rediscovered all the steps your followed to get to where you are now. It was just what I needed to re-find my Spark!

    Thank you for sharing your story with us, every step of the way. It means so much to me, since I, too, started at 190 pounds, but I still have a long way to go. You've reminded me that I CAN get there, but I need to put in the effort and the miles. What a great payoff, though!

    Take care.

    Happy Birthday and congratulations! Turning 40 was great and 50 isn't so bad either. Especially when we're healthy!
