My sixth fativersary


I just wanted to pop in and let you know it’s my sixth fativersary. Six years ago I started my weight loss journey. You can also read about what I was doing on my second fativersary, my fourth fativersary, and my fifth fativersary. I evidently didn’t notice or care about my first and third fativersary.

I probably shouldn’t celebrate this event with cake, right?

Wow! Congratulations! Your post just made me realize that my two year Fativersary is tomorrow! I always think its funny that I didn’t start January 1. I needed 15 days to get motivated to actually do something. :) In fact, on January 1 I had no plan of starting this…and now here I am! Awesome, and congrats PQ!

Hi! Today is my “fativersary” too, only 1 year for me though. Isn’t it great hitting these anniversaries :) I look forward to following you in the future. Hope to hear from you soon!

Congratulations! I know you’re not happy about the weight you regained because of the neverending headache, but you’re still looking good! Thanks for years of great reading!

I want to thank you, too, for all these years of keepin’ it real. Your honesty and humor are refreshing.

It’s not as fun celebrating with broccoli though. You could add sprinkles to the broccoli? That might make it more festive.

Congrats and thanks for the inspiration and humor that you have provided to those of us working towards a Fativersary of our own!

This is probably a sign that I've got problems, but the idea of sleeping for 30 hours sounds really appealing.
