Tonight we went to a very fancy restaurant with some co-workers/family/friends. My close friend/co-worker made the arrangements for my birthday. It was a great time. I was surprised at how many people showed up. The food was wonderful - I had a array of seafood. Even with cake at the end I wasn't up too many calories because seafood has such a low calorie count. Yes, I am still worrying about calories. I am trying to start thinking in maintenance mode, but I'm not quite there yet (neither mentally nor in actual weight!). Anyway, I'm glad I am mostly out of my funk, because most of the cards were making fun of me turning 40!!
I'll show you guys the dress I wore - I was pretty happy with how I looked. Plus, for those of you who know me, and know what a cheap-skate I am, I got this dress for $6. Woo hoo!
Here's one of Marc and I right before we left.
People at the party were so complimentary - if you were one of the people there, thanks again so much. I still have a very hard time taking compliments, but there's a part of me that now thinks people are saying that I look good because there is some truth to it, not just because they feel obligated to make a positive comment.
All I have to say is that I am a very lucky person and I need to remember this when I get in one of my moods - easier said then done, though!
Well, my birthDAY stretched into a birthWEEK celebration. Back to reality tomorrow - have to get at least 5 more pounds off. May try a run longer then 6 miles for the first time since surgery!
