LilySlim - Weight loss

I'm 50!

I can kick and stretch and kick...I'm 50! Ha ha! Today I turned 50, and it's not such a bad place to be.  As I look back over my life, and the missteps along the way, I suppose that there has been more good than bad.  I'm so thankful that I have my band, that, although I still want to lose more weight, I have maintained a 60 pound loss for 2 years.  I'm healthier, happier and I think I look better.   The picture below is me, on the left at 40 on the right at 50 (10 years and 80 pounds!).  I wouldn't want to go back, that's for sure. 
 
I had a great weekend, filled with celebrating and good friends. It was really great.  I hope you all have a great week!
Big Hugs,
T

Happy Birthday to you! You look fabulous and have every right to be proud of where you are today compared to 10 years ago (or even 3 years ago!).
Congrats.
