42 and proud!!!

So its my birthday today...I am 42..Yikes..can't believe I am 42..I still feel like my 20's at times.
I remember last year at this time.  I was recouping from my second surgery to fix my port. I remember thinking yay me....sitting there, was this going to work, at this point I was doubting it because I hadn't really lost much weight and I was a couple months out from my original surgery with no fills and eating pretty much anything.  I was pretty down.  I wish I could have told myself to relax and realize that I would be 170 at my next birthday..down almost a 100lbs, I would be living in size 10's flirting with 8's  I never thought I would get here...I had hoped to be under 200 but I always had doubts.
Well I don't have doubts anymore.  I did not give up...and there were many times I wanted to.  I kept doing what I saw so many other successful banders do.  So for my next birthday..I plan on being at goal at 150.  I plan to be at maintenance and I am looking forward to this new year and new me.  I think this is going to be a challenging year for me, but I am ready!

Happy birthday! I remember 42 very well. It was a good year! I didn't have any trouble with turning 40, but then when I hit 41, I thought, "Oh no! It keeps on going!" But by the time I got to 42, I was fine with it again.

Your goal of being in maintenance by the next birthday sound so achievable! Congratulations!

Stop being such a rockstar, you're going to be thinner than me before the month is up!

Sorry I missed your birthday, boo! Love you!

Awww, have a fantastic birthday!
I'll be 42 this year too and like you, don't feel it at all! I think I'll always be 30 in my mind.
Have a great day!
