    I awoke to freshly picked flowers from our garden from my hubby...

    Loads of kisses from my labbies...

    Hubby made me breakfast AND cleaned up AND took care of the boys for me AND let me read the paper without interruption.

    That was enough for me...It's amazing what little things mean to me...

    Hubby also has this idea that he is taken me to the casino to gamble today...WooHoo!
    Then on the way home I get to pick what I want for dinner and then home we come for the birthday cake...(I may pass on the ice cream cake as I am starting a new regimen tomorrow)

    Oh yeah, I am 39 today...My Dad's favorite age...He was the perpetual age of 39, like Jack Benny (for those that remember who Jack Benny was,tehe)

    I am giving myself a gift too...Starting tomorrow I will be attempting to adhere to a better health program including diet and some form of exercise to get back to how I looked on my wedding day...

    I can't believe how I've changed and I REFUSE to look this way on my 40th birthday...I may feel like crap but I wanna look good again so that's my plan...

    It's been another rough year, but could have been worse, so I am thankful for the 39 I've allready had and looking forward to the years to come...

    Guess I am just trying a positive approach in my way of thinking, moreso than in the past...I am hoping for a better year health-wise, something I wish for all of you too...

    Have a wonderful day everyone...

    Love to ALL~Alicia

    Used to listen to Jack Benny on the radio when I was a kid. The best radio show. Folks can still listen today thanks to CDs, cassette tapes, etc.

    I am having a GREAT DAY and everytime I get on this board I see more Bday Wishes...

    Thank you all so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am off to the casino now...The boys are fed and the neighbors alerted...Imagine this, we can't leave for a few hours without having notified the neighbors to watch the house and listen for the boys...We are too much here...

    I am sure to get heart palpitations watching the gas guage go down while driving there, hoping I win at least enough to pay for the gas...tehe

    Thank you everyone...Cross your fingers I win some $$$$$

    Love to ALL!

    I am proud of your outlook on life and what you are going to do. I need to get that positive attitude back again also.

    Your body knows what your thinking, so thinking positively helps. They say if you want to be thin, to say "I am getting thinner everyday" to yourself and it will happen.

    Glad your keeping your chin up.

    Halo

    I lost my shirt!!!!!

    I had more fun on the 2cent slots than I did on the $1.00 ones...My husband was laughing at me how excited I got winning 40cents at a time...tehe

    We left at noon and got there at 1:00...I tried to keep in my mind that I was going to have a good time, no matter what...

    I sat at a machine for 10 minutes and had to squirm to keep from having to get up...People must have been thinking that I had bugs in my panties...tehe

    Well after 3:00, that was it for me but I kept trying to smile and stay cheery for hubby's sake...I made him take me when he kept telling me it will be too much on you...For 39 years old, I am like an old fart (can we say fart on here?)

    I was glad to be back home at 4:30...I am now going to attempt to pass out, at least for 5 minutes...I don't sleep even if I think I do...

    So tomorrow begins the first day of the rest of my life...

    I will be changing my eating habits and trying to at least stretch everyday...Most days that's too much, I get exhausted and it ruins the whole darn day from 6:00 in the morning...I told hubby strict orders, no ice cream, no friggin bread and absolutely no chips or JUNK around here anymore...We are very good eaters and only eat junk now and then but that's even too much...I am trying to do organic, small meals and ONLY eat when hungry, not these timed out meals...

    I hope to keep the willpower up for the eating part anyway...The exercise part will come as it comes...I have always been the strong type and I believe mind over matter always prevails BUT with FMS/CF among other things, I take a beaten just getting to the coffee maker in the morning...

    Well, you all know how hard it is...I am looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow...60 pounds off my bod and the loss of my pot of belly!!! I want to lose it all by my 40th bday...That's 5 lbs. a month...hahahahahaha...I could do that still eating a pint of haagendazs a week...But I am not going to...See mind over matter is talking me down allready...Just have to remember how much icky stuff is in there and if I wouldn't feed it to my dogs, I shouldn't eat it either, right? RIGHT!

    Thank you all for the wishes...I hope to post new skinnier pics as I get down to my wedding day weight...Can't wait to see the look on my hubby's face when he gets to see the OLD (new) me...He adores me anyway but I would rather he have something better to look at...

    Love to ALL, Alicia
