Operation Skinny Jeans: Another year goes by

Another year goes by

I seem to have this tradition. Every year on my birthday, I promise myself that I am going to make a change. To be a better me. To stop slacking off and FINALLY lose the weight. I made that promise last year, like always, and for some reason, it stuck. 25 was the only year I actually took that promise to heart and made the change.

 
I will be honest, because that is what I aim to be on here. The last few months have been rough. I have had so many things going on in my life that I have had a hard time managing both my life and my weight loss. I have maintained, if not lost a little, but the last 4 months have been a roller coaster.
 
But today, on the 26th anniversary of my birth, I am making that promise again. It's go time. I am re-committing to this process and I am ready to give it 110%. But in order to do that, I have to focus on me. I have realized that in the last 4 months, I have stopped putting myself anywhere close to first. At least not my health. And I fully believe that is the first step to success.
 
So here's to 26. The year I finally change my life.
 
Are you reflective on birthdays or is it just me?

  4. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I do this every year. This past year was the first year that it ever really stuck! I have had my hard times for sure this past year but hitting 100 pounds lost now for the second time has been extremely humbling! Here is to another healthy year for us! CHEERS MY FRIEND! xoxo

  5. First off, Happy Birthday. and secondly, congrats on your amazing progress! I completely get where you're coming from, I was overweight for so long and attempted to many times before I finally knuckled down and gave it my all. Having the motivation to do it is so hard to find, but once you find it, it's great!! I'm not sure if you follow my blog or not, but I post a lot of motivational type posts and blog a lot about my weight loss journey if you want to check it out! Congrats, you look fantastic!

  18. Happy (late) Birthday! You look great, congratulations. I wish I had been smart enough to start getting in shape when I was 25. I feel like I lost a lot of time with my little children because I couldn't keep up with them or read them a book without getting out of breath. Keep up the good work, you are worth it :D
