End of the "Ten Pound Challenge"

Can you guess I didn't reach my "Ten Pound Challenge"? If you follow Fork in Food you'll know that all I've been doing this month is eat and eat and eat!! Hey you only turn forty once, right? So I milked it for all I had...and more...

The "I'm turning forty" excuse was fabulous!! All I had to do was say that and I could do no wrong! I got to go away for two weekends alone without kids and hubby and that has never happened before. I also got to go out with my friends all month without any complaints. I even bought myself things that I would never have bought but all in the name of FORTY!!

Forty is FABULOUS so far!! Can't wait to see if the next eleven months is as much fun. I have to say that so far this has been the best birthday EVER!!

(By the way, I still managed to lose four pounds even with all that eating. )


  1. I'm so happy that your 40th birthday was the best one yet. I wish you many more best birthdays to come. You deserve it! And losing the 4 pounds is like the icing on top of the cake!

  2. If only I had known about this power 3 years ago... ;o)
