Quarter Century Celebration

I spent the last week feeling kind of down that I am not where I wanted to be in this weight loss journey.  When I started, I had this unrealistic idea that I would be at my goal weight by my birthday.  I now realize that would probably be unhealthy and I'm okay with where I am, but I was just feeling weird about getting older I guess.

Regardless of the fact that I have 65ish pounds left to go, I still think I looked fabulous!

Thank you all for helping me choose the gold dress!  My friends really wanted me to wear the white/black dress but I just felt so much more comfortable in this one.

Here I am standing in front of my decorated hotel door.  The staff at the Glenwood Raleigh Hampton Inn is awesome!
