Picture of Ben and I at the shower his church gave us....we are showing off the cake.
Yes, you do detect MAKEUP on my face. This is the second day in a row I've worn it. Could we be on to a new trend folks? Time will tell.
Ben got to my condo, and we talked for a few minutes. He had me look into the mirror and said, "Think back to when you were at your heaviest. Did you ever think you would look this great?" He went on to gush about how I looked for a few more minutes. He insists that my body keeps getting more shapely even though he knows that I have stopped losing weight. I'll take the compliments. :) In addition to my cookie cake (which has always been an essential for my birthday since as long as I can remember), Ben bought me flowers. He is also getting me a black leather jacket. Since my weight loss has stabilized, this is something that I have wanted, and I want one that is somewhat form fitting.
Turning 30 doesn't feel bad at all. I am more healthy today than I have ever been my entire life. Life is beautiful. I am looking forward to the future with great anticipation.
