A man asked his wife what she'd like for her birthday.

"I'd love to be six again," she replied.

On the morning of her birthday, he got her up bright and early and off they went to a local theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park: the Death Slide, the Screaming Loop, the Wall of Fear-everything there was! Wow!

Five hours later she staggered out of the theme park, her head reeling and her stomach upside down. Right to a McDonald's they went, where her husband ordered a Big Mac for her along with extra fries and refreshing chocolate shake.

Then it was off to a movie-the latest Star Wars epic, and hot dogs, popcorn, Pepsi Cola and M&M's. What a fabulous adventure!

Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed. He leaned over and lovingly asked, "Well, dear, what was it like being six again?"

One eye opened.

"You idiot, I meant my dress size."

Sheesh - I'm the last one to arrive. I just now noticed this thread - OOPS!

My birthday was truly great - from start to finish.

Last year, I had a very quiet birthday, actually I remember being alone that evening. I weighed somewhere around 265 pounds.

This year I started out feeling kinda iffy about the birthday - my 35th. That's because I was thinking of the things I DON'T have. I decided that was a poor attitude, and focused myself on the countless blessings in my life. Once I did that, I decided nothing short of a party would do.

This year I had lunch with my Mom and Dad (chicken salad), and then a mobile sort of party that migrated from place to place. When it was birthday cake time, there were probably 150 people at the bar we were in and they ALL sang Happy Birthday to me. I'm told my cake was FABULOUS. I was wearing my size 16 jeans, and I danced the night away. I got home around 2am - tired, but extremely happy. The afterglow lasted for several days. My weight that day was hovering just at the 200 mark. Yes, I still have a chunk of weight to lose, but the 'gifts' I have experienced just from how far I have gotten are priceless.

I had FUN getting dressed for my party. I even modeled my top 2 outfits and let my date pick his favorite. I received numerous compliments about how 'great' I looked. And my mentioning the dancing is no small thing. I wouldn't have been caught dead on a dance floor for the last oh, 10 years or so. When I say I was boogying my butt off, I mean it! Dancing with reckless abandon.

What a difference a year makes. There is NO COMPARISON to how I felt about myself last year, and how I feel this year. I am looking forward to completing my weight loss, and making the next birthday celebration even better than this years. Because I can.

I feel very blessed. Thank you, my forum friends, for thinking of me. It's such a comfort to share our journeys together. I hope someday we do pull off a MF party, it would be a total hoot to meet you all.


P.S. I've thought of posting a pic from the big day, but I'm not sure what the etiquette rules are for doing that if there are other people in the picture. They may not wish to be 'published'.
