Since yesterday was my birthday…and since I did indeed lose 50 pounds by my 60th birthday (hence the name of this blog)…
I’ve decided the best present I could possibly give myself is…
NO WEIGH-IN TODAY YAYYYY!!!
So, pass me another cuppa cofveve,
and hand me a slice of birthday cake,
’cause this is it — my special birthday!
It’s time for another diet break!**
Plenty of time in the next week to go back to the calorie counting and the exercise, right? At least, that’s the theory! We’ll see how that plays out next week, as I begin the next phase of my diet journey*: 30 More Pounds By (Orthodox) Christmas!
Who’s with me?
OK, that’s it! Enjoy your Labor Day weekend! (Oh, and by the way, when I was a kid, my mom told me it was called “Labor Day” because it’s when I was born, and I believed her, so be sure & thank her for your nice long weekend!!)
(*I know, I hate that word too, but what are you gonna do, eh?)
