Today is the day! I’ve been in denial that I’m turning 26 for a while now. 25 was such a good number, and 26 meant that I was officially closer to THIRTY than 20. I may or may not have even typed “25” into the machine at the gym today when it asked me how old I was… don’t judge, even if I can’t lie to the rest of the world, I can still fool the elliptical at the gym!
okay… maybe you can judge a little.
However 26 is shaping up to be a pretty good year already! This morning I woke up to so many wonderful birthday messages from family and friends, I got to have lunch with my mom, and tonight I’m excited to celebrate with some of my favorite friends :) Even though we’re technically celebrating turning 26, today I’m also celebrating the number 30 as well.
The best birthday gift came this morning when I stepped onto the scale, and saw that I had finally had kicked those last few pounds to get down to THIRTY POUNDS LOST! I had hit a plateau with the weight loss or so it seemed these past few weeks; one of the most frustrating things ever? absolutely. so I pushed myself a little harder than usual, and thank goodness this morning it paid off! I’m not sure why “30” was such a big number, there was no celebrating for hitting 10 or 20 pounds down, but 30 just seems like a much bigger number. some days I don’t notice much of a difference when I look in the mirror, until I see old pictures or remember that I’m in clothes two or three full sizes smaller than I was in 6 months ago! I’m now buying clothes in sizes that I don’t EVER remember buying before, and lord knows THAT is something to celebrate! :)
