Getting Older……I had a Birthday last Week.

Getting Older

I know y’all didn’t know, my birthday was last Wednesday (3/8).  I went out with my family for lunch on my birthday, went shopping on Thursday and on Friday evening we went out for dinner and came back home for dessert which was birthday cake. YUM! I gained 7 lbs between those 3 days! YIKES! LOL  I didn’t realize getting older would mean I would gain weight so quickly!

See, I’ve always been skinny.  The past 6 years I gained weight, I managed to drop 30 lbs in 2012 and I didn’t keep it off 🙁  Yep I just didn’t think I would gain it all back, so I ate whatever I wanted! LOL  Now I am trying my best to drop that 30 lbs plus the 7 I recently gained.  I’m happy to say I have lost 2 lbs since Monday so that’s a plus 🙂 I am drinking 1 TBLSPN of Apple Cider Vinegar in tea about 30 minutes before eating, just started that Tuesday.

Anyway, here are some pictures of my cake and my granddaughter.  She cracks me up! LOL She loves to eat cake like she’s a dog? cat? I mean face plant into the cake and eats it! LOL  I love my little ladybug though, she’s the joy in my life, makes me want to do things even when I feel exhausted.

This is the cake my daughter and son in law bought for me and my blowing out candles (TRICK CANDLES!). My husband tried to be cute, little did he know I knew they were trick candles! LOL  (that is my son in law behind me)

My granddaughter decided she wanted to help grama cut the cake with her toy spatula, I talked her out of it, so she used it to eat the icing! LOL Smart to know which toy utensil was correct and a very creative mind.

  1. 7 pounds in 3 days?! Are you sure it’s not just water retention? Seems like an awful lot for enjoying a few cakes and yummies. Anyway, happy birthday! 🙂

    1. Thank You. Yes I’m sure it’s not water retention. What I ate wasn’t exactly low fat or low carb! LOL However, I have lost 5 lbs this past week, so YAY! 🙂

  2. Happy birthday to you! I’m sure you had an amazing time with your family, especially your grand daughter. It’s so hard to put off weight when you start aging. I make sure that I exercise regularly!

    1. Thank you Elizabeth. Yes I did. She makes everyday worth it. Yea I lost over 30 lbs in 2012 and I wish I had kept it off LOL However I have lost 5 pounds including the 2 I found off this morning, so YAY 🙂

    1. Thank you Carol. I’m surprised at how much attention I got this year! LOL It’s usually not like that, however my daughter got her license so things got better with that 🙂 Yep I need to remember to start eating smarter. I did loose 5 lbs though, so happy about that 🙂
