Yes it's official as I type these words I am now 40 years of age and having a fabulous birthday.
Thank you to everyone who has wished me a Happy Birthday via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter etc it has been lovely to receive so many messages and I apologise for not being able to reply to everyone individually.
When people think of the age 40 you always seem to hear I don't want to be fat and forty, and 10 years ago when I was 30 neither did I or so I thought. After spending the last 20 years yo-yo dieting and being thoroughly miserable for most of it I stopped and learnt to love myself. So I sit here now aged 40 at the biggest I have ever been but also the most comfortable in my skin I have ever been.
I am more than happy to say I am fat, forty and fabulous and long may it continue!!
In case you were wondering here is what 40 looks like!! (with an instagram filter of course!!!)
PS 40 really doesn't feel much different to 39!!!
