Birthday Goals . . . And a New Outlook

I am 35 today.
I blogged about it on my other blog, if you would like to read it here.
Something about 35, is that I never imagined I'd be where I am today.
I never imagined I would have the man of my dreams.
I never imagined I would have these amazing children.
I never thought I would be close to 300 lbs . . .

With my decision to re-join Weight Watchers came a decision to change myself in so many ways.
I have five years until I hit 40.
And as we all know, 40 is the new 30.
So, my goal at 40 is to be a smokin' hot mama.
And I know I can do it.
I have my husband's support.
I have my family's support.
And I have my God.

My first Weigh In is this Saturday, when I will go to my very first face to face meeting. I am so excited because of everyone that I have learned I will be in there with.
My mother in law.
My sister in law.
One of my sweetest friends and her daughter . . .
Not to mention the countless friends of mine that are doing this in other areas not close to me.
I will have one of the largest support systems ever.

If I can't do this NOW . . .
Then I never will.
God is pointing me to this new place in my life.
He is guiding me to be the person He desires me to be.
I will do this.
I CAN do this.
I HAVE TO DO THIS.
I won't be doing this alone.
Here's to being Losers in 2011!!
