40 vs 48

On the left is me at 40, on the right is me last month.
In 2 days, I turn 48....I'll take 48 over 40 any day!
I told you a few days ago about the funk I was in from looking at old pictures of myself, how sad it was to see how I'd let myself go. Friday I'll be 48 and you know what? It doesn't hurt, at all. I wouldn't go back. I'm so much healthier now, I'm so much happier now. Most of the people in my life are happier too. I say, bring it on 48, I can take it! I feel certain that when I'm 49, I'll be able to show you all a picture of myself at my goal weight, feeling even better about myself than I do today. Many great things come with getting older, one of them is knowing the significance of the layout of a car...the reason the rear view mirror is so much smaller than the windshield is because what's ahead of you is so much more important than what's behind you.
Today, I'm grateful for the place I'm in right now, and I'm looking forward to what's ahead. Happy Wednesday!
Big Hugs!

I say you could have switched the numbers on the pics. 48 vs 40. You look fantastic and really don't look a day over 39.

Holy fuck.

P.S. I never would have guessed you are 48. I'm not sure I believe you. I tell people I'm 42 so they'll say "Wow, you look so good!" I'm on to you.
