Thin Girl Thursday: Birthday Edition {3}

I haven't had a lot of extra time for blogging or the internet lately, which makes me very sad.  I am glad that I started Thin Girl Thursday, even though it's been my only posts for the past three weeks it is at least encouraging me to post something!  So here it is...

This is the birthday edition because I just had a birthday, duh.  Sunday I turned 25.  What a scary number that is.  I don't know why, it just is.  The only other time I felt like I was getting old was when I turned 22, because the next big birthday is 30.  I know I'm not old, it's just unbelievable that I'm already 25, where the time go?

I think about all of the things I envisioned myself being at the ripe old age of 25 when I was younger.  The younger Lauren thought I'd have some children by now and a husband which I'm working on :), running the show at wherever I worked and basically just being fabulous and living an awesomely adult life. Ha!  How glamorous we think being an adult is when we are still living under the shelter of our parents.  For the most part, I love my life.  I'm marrying my soul mate in December, I'm taking my first trip to Europe this year, I have an awesome job, I'll be done with my masters in October, I have an awesome nephew and soon a niece, my family is healthy, I have AMAZING friends and I have the coolest Boston Terrier anyone could ask for.   My life is pretty awesome.  I can honestly say I never envisioned being unhappy with myself at 25 and for the most part, I'm not.  I can also say that never once did I think I would be 25 and overweight.  So as a birthday gift to me, I'm giving me my health back.  I'm giving myself the chance to do all of the things I thought I would be doing and to be healthy while I do them.  I don't want to be unhealthy and down on myself for John or for my future children.  So, in this 25th year of living, I want to be the best and healthiest me I can be.
