Yesterday was my B-Day

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Well-yesterday 6/29th was my 47th Birthday and thank you to all of you who sent their wishes to me--I appreciate it..
I did not go anywhere --I just wanted to order out Italian and we rented the Pink Panther 2 and watched it and it was a great movie..So like most other times my birthday was quiet .. Thats ok with me--Sometimes i enjoy going out to eat--but not always.. My hubby bought me a hanging basket with pretty flowers in them--as that is what i wanted--other than cut roses which die in a few days..
As I reflect on my life as we usually do on out Birthdays-right LOL.. I am so glad how far i have come--with my Weight loss surgery and losing over 200 lbs and fitting into smaller clothes--There are some days when we all think to ourselves Boy if i could go back to yesterday and know what i know now--it would be great!
Unfortunately things happen accoding to Gods Will I beliee and there are reasons why things happen--I certainly do not want to go back in time to go thru all the major helath probs i suffered thru in and out of the hospital--I just wish the first time i lost weight and went to Weight Watchers when i was only 12 and lost 30 lbs--i wish that i did everything i could to be more active and to keep slim..But it did not happen that way.
So here like everyone else I take one day at a time.
I thank God for the Love and support of all of my SP friends --Especially you DONE GIRLS --you ROCK.. We all need each other for support and motivation and to do the same for others--so DO NOT Give up--Keep the Faith !

Big Hugs to you all
Susie SMith from PA

    Happy Birthday. :) 200 pounds gone, awesome. My sister had bariatric surgery and it has made such a difference in her life too. Almost no meds now, energy level off the charts, self-esteem rocketing. God is good.

    I agree with wishing you could go back... I can think of so many things I'd like to do- encourage my mom to send me to counseling when my parents got divorced (I went from 70 pounds at age 10 to 180 a little over a year later), tell my high school self to stop using food as an entertainment, keep myself from making any number of stupid mistakes! But you're right, we can't... so the best thing to do is look forward and try to do better by ourselves.

    Happy Belated Birthday emoticon Yes we all reflect and see the good and the not so good choices that we have made, but when we get back to reality we can know we're blessed today.

    I hope you have many more happy birthdays. God bless, ginny

    Happy belated birthday. Glad you had a nice day. I agree, living flowers and plants make such nice gifts.
    You are doing so well on this journey, and sometimes it takes awhile for us to really get it done, but just know that maybe before the 'time' wasn't right.
    Keep up the good work.

    Happy belated birthday!

    And while we go through "stuff" in life, hopefully we learn something from it. And it certainly seems that you have been learning, so that is good!
