Last week was my birthday, and as always, it was a time to reflect and ponder.
Am I where I want to be? Not at all. I had hoped to reach my weight goal by my birthday, but I am not there yet. I have maintained my weight for the last year. I still would like to lose 50 pounds. I have a plan, and it is working, so I’m going to stick with it.
To look on the bright side of things, I have never felt better or been in better shape. I’m exercising five days a week or so. There’s always room for improvement, and my biggest competitor is myself. I’m running with my running group three days a week. That will come to an end in about a month, so I am trying to plan now how I will proceed after that.
Getting older doesn’t have to mean getting old!
Even to your old age I will be the same, And even to your graying years I will bear you! I have done it, and I will carry you; And I will bear you and I will deliver you. Isaiah 46:4
