Loss 0.9kg - what a way to start the 40's !!!!

SW : 86.1kg
CW : 71.2kg
Loss for the week : 0.9kg
Loss to date : 14.9kg

As you can see I went to weigh last night – what a wonderful surprise and such a lovely way to end my 39th year and of course, start my 40th !!! I dare say next week won’t be that good but, I have decided that I only turn 40 once and I am going to have a ball !
I had lunch yesterday with a friend and am going to lunch today and tomorrow with friends. Kaitlin and I are meeting my Mom and Dad at Runaway Bay tonight (I promised Kaitlin sushi for dinner after donating blood) and then tomorrow night we are going to my folks for dinner. Sunday night we (Kaitlin and I) will be going out for dinner to celebrate as I mentioned yesterday ! All in all a lot of celebrations (not what I wanted) but have decided that if people want to celebrate with me I shouldn’t be a party pooper and say no !!!!!! Just wish Al was here to share it all – none the less, I will have a blast and just make the best choices that I can along the way.
I have been very spoilt – will take some photos and post them when I get a chance ! I woke up this morning to Kaitlin singing Happy Birthday to me (more asleep than awake but better than waking up and being alone !) – then I had to sit up and close my eyes. First the cards came out – lovely cards from her and Alan and my Canadian friend who had posted me a card which Kaitlin had intercepted in the mail. After I opened my presents, we got up and I had my yoghurt and dried fruit for breakfast and my Mom and Dad arrived with the biggest basket of lovely smellies for me – all in a lavender colour – told them I am going to have the longest bath on Sunday !!!!! There are lotions and creams and bubble bath and bath oil and a neck cushion with little suckers on to stick to the bath, a back cleaner, slippers, pampering gloves, bath salts – all sorts of lovely things. I took a photo of it so will post that at some stage and will also take some photos of my jewellery so you can all see how spoilt I have been.
For those who haven’t turned 40 – don’t be scared, it’s really fun !!!!!! As my sister-in-law keeps telling me, 40 is the new 30, but maybe that has more to do with the fact that she is over 40 !!Take care everyone, have a great day and remember to be good to yourselves !
For the birthday wishes that some of you have left me - THANK YOU so much - it is so lovely to get all these good wishes from all my on-line friends - you are such special people !

TFTD : All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them.

Unreal and you better have a ball or else ;-) Sounds like you've got a lot of really great people around you too. Great presents and very thoughtful. I also love the fact that A + K went back to buy something secretly for you that you've said that you like. What a great surprise! I hope you have a brilliant day gorgeous, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! xx
