Unfortunately I don't have a weekly weight update since I'm currently on a ship bound for our first stop, Grand Cayman, but I'm trying to make healthy choices while on this trip with a few small splurges here and there. So far I think I'm doing well. I'm trying to keep my protein and fresh fruit and vegetable intake up, and resist all the delicious looking pastries and sweets.
It's creeping closer and closer to one year since I started this journey, and I keep creeping closer and closer to my next big milestone of losing 100 pounds. I'm not far from my short term goal of hitting 95 pounds down. I've found that small goals are important to keep me motivated so I set a lot of small goals in 5 pound increments. This week I made it another half pound closer. For those keeping track, I'm now down 91.3 pounds from my starting weight of 286, and I have 44.7 pounds to go to my goal weight.
Work has been keeping me super busy, so I'm behind on reading blog posts (I have about 200 blog emails sitting in my inbox at the moment), and I seem to have misplaced my crafting mojo, and haven't located it yet. I'm hoping it comes back before my cruise in three weeks otherwise I'm in big trouble. My friends and I are headed for the Caribbean with some fellow crocheters, along with The Crochet Crowd! It's going to be a fun time!
I know I keep saying this, but I can hardly believe it's coming up on a year since I started back to Weight Watchers, and soon after, it will be a whole year since I started this blog! I'm so happy about the progress I've made on my weight loss journey, and the friends I've made through my blog.
Once again I have joined Tracy at It's a T-Sweets Day! for her Fantastic Bake Along (although I'm a bit late getting my baking done and posted). This month, Rebecca at Twinklehook chose the recipe and she chose one of my favourites. Great job Rebecca!
