For those of you who follow my blog, I have finally made it back from my vacation and I’m trying desperately to get back into the swing of things! The cruise was incredible, and yes I indulged a little and as a result I gained 6.2 pounds over the last two weeks, but am I upset? Absolutely not.
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.
Sadly, no yummy recipes again this week, and I’m super late posting my progress this week. My weigh in day was Monday, and it went well. I lost another 1.1 pounds, bringing me to a total of 96.1 pounds lost. My goal now is to try to keep making healthy choices for myself for the next two weeks while I’m on vacation and not in control of making all of my meals. This will be the true test to see if my resolve to make this a lifestyle change sticks.
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.
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.
