Last Weigh In Before My Birthday....(Happy St Patricks Day)

I didn't do it, 60 x 60 did not happen.
I knew several weeks ago it wouldn't be done.
I have lost 37.5 pounds and 34.5 inches.
I have dropped four dress sizes and one shoe size.
I am fitter than I have ever been, which is amazing!!

So am I happy?
Yes!! I am Very Happy;o)

There is a slight disappointment that I didn't get to goal,
but one of the most imprtant things I have learnt here in 
weird and wonderful Blogland is Life is Wonderful
and although losing weightto get healthy is important. 
~It is not the be all and end all~

I have gain much on this blogging journey,
my life has been enriched by strangers who offer:
friendship, advice, laughter, support and prayers and healing thoughts.
This journey is one I am so happy to have taken, with it's detour's,
hold up's and breakdown's. The view's and vista's have ranged from
the delightful to the magnificent, the weird, the wonderful, the quirky,
all making the ride an utter joy.
I love the honesty in Blogland,
some use it like the confessional box in the Catholic Church,
some use it as therapy/counselling. 
But all inspire and encourage with words and pictures
that touch the heart and mind.

Usually at the end of a long journey, I like to enjoy a shower,
change into something comfortable, have a cup of tea and relax.
This journey is almost over, what do I do now? 
Carry on with 60 x 60? Or head off somwhere new?
I have thought of starting a new blog, not centred on weigh loss,
but would I lose to many friends?
Decisions Decisions Decisions.....

Happy St Patricks Day.
Hail Glorious St Patrick Dear St of Our Isle.
My Irish heritage comes to the fore on March 17th.
My dad passed away on this day twenty five years ago.
He made sure we never forgot the date of his passing.


An Irish Blessing

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

The rains fall soft upon your fields and,

Until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand

Happy St. Patrick's Day, darling Sheilagh! I can't wait to see what the future brings for you!

And don't forget you have a whole year of being 60... you can still meet that goal depending on your outlook! I hope your birthday celebrations are all you could ever hope for! Hugs!!!

Morning Sheilagh

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you too !
I must admit, I do agree with the above comment. You are 60 for a whole year, not just a day. Perhaps you could still reach that 60 lbs when your 60 ?!!x x

60 at 60 is great! Didn't have to be BY 60. You've done incredible things. You've learned along the way, you've grown...YOU ARE A SUCCESS!
If getting to 60 pounds lost is important to you, then I say nothings changed! 60 at 60 sounds good!
You're a wonderful inspiration my friend!

My best always

And Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Oh yeah go you! Sixty AT sixty works well! Overall though Sheilagh, the success is HAPPIER at 60 and that, you have.
