Turning 40

Monday, April 2, 2007 by Michelle

I turned 40 on Saturday, March 31st. It’s hard to believe that two years ago I was more than 55 lbs heavier and wondering what had happened to my 30s. I sure made up for that with a vengeance these past two years! Turns out, the later part of my 30s was the time where I became more fit than I’ve ever been. I look forward to an even fitter 4th decade.

During the weekend I was loved, loved, loved by my family, friends, co-workers and neighbours; it’s wonderful to have the people in life intersect like that. I’m very thankful to have a husband who spent the time to organize such a memorable day. And it’s pretty heady stuff finding out that the hard work I’ve done in these past two years has inspired family and friends to make healthy changes in their own lives.

So here I am, 40 years old and more fit than I ever thought possible, and getting moreso every day (especially the days I decide the weather or the stuff going on in life don’t dictate whether or not I make healthy choices – I just do because it needs to be done). So thank you, my friends, family and everyone who has encouraged me along. It has made a big difference having a group of people cheering me on.
