Tomorrow is my birthday, but I’ve already given myself a gift.
  I’ve lost about 25lbs since March. I weigh less than I did on my last three birthdays,  but that’s not what I’m most excited about. I’m excited that this year I lit a fire under my own ass and got motivated,  learned how to really power through roadblocks, and kept every promise that I made to myself in terms of self improvement. 
Best of all, now I can run. REALLY run. When my husband gets home from deployment, we can run together. We’re doing a 10k(me)/half marathon (him) together on thanksgiving. He’s proud of me and that means a lot, but nothing can compare with the genuine pride I feel in myself. 
Happy birthday to me.
