It's not just my 40th birthday, it's also the first anniversary of this blog. A year ago I started writing about my desire to lose weight, and 112 posts later, I'm still here.
This is both good news and bad news . . .
. . . good because I still have so much to write about it. Just over the past few days, I've come across the inspiration for three or four more posts. It seems that, unfortunately, there is never a lack of material for someone writing about body issues.
. . . but bad because I haven't lost as much weight as I would like in the past year. I had really hoped to be in the 180s by now, but I guess it's not entirely fair to say this is bad news. The bottom line is that I weigh eight pounds less today than I did at this time a year ago. So that's definitely something.
To celebrate, I'm going to buy the blog a fabulous gift . . . a new website and a new look. Because isn't that all any of us want? A shiny new dress to make us feel amazing?
The new look won't be available until summer, but if you have any suggestions before then, feel free to let me know.
Also, I want to thank everyone out there who reads this blog—your comments over the past twelve months have kept me going every time I've started to lose momentum, and I can't thank you enough for that.
Happy anniversary, friends!
