I'm definitely making progress

Friday, February 15, 2013

My son, daughter-in-law, her sister and our grandpuppy arrived last night for a visit. They brought oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies. The sister did some baking this morning - all kinds of chocolate sweets. They are for a party they are going to tomorrow but she kept offering different goodies. Not only did I not have any, I wasn't even tempted. For someone who used to have a terrible sweet tooth, I think that's a great sign that I have changed my lifestyle. My husband noticed and gave me lots of kudos. emoticon

We leave in just a few days for a vacation. My first 2013 goal was to be a certain weight by that time. I hit it this morning! I'm feeling so good about that. I'm excited to try on the clothes in my closet and figure out what to pack. I did this a few weeks ago with some happy results, so this should be fun since I've lost 4 pounds since then.

My goal for vacation is to do lots (daily) of walking, hiking, and swimming. I also plan to eat in a healthy way. I will be thrilled if I come back at the same weight, but I'll be gentle on myself if I have a little weight gain. I know it will be more difficult since I'm not in as much control of the cooking, but I also know how to deal with both the vacation and my return.

Be back in 3 weeks.

PS - That makes 20 pounds lost on SP. emoticon

    That is awesome! My biggest weakness if home-baked goodies. That's why I never make any, and if I do, they're for someone else and out of the house in 24 hours!

    First of all. I love that you call your son's dog "the grandpuppy". I call my dog that to my mom all the time. They are just like family right? What kind of dog is it!

    Great GREAT job on not noshing on the cookies. That does take a lot of will power.

    Going through the closet is so much fun!

    Have a great time on your vacation.
