I am going to try to make this short and sweet (which never happens LOL)! I had a blast in Minnesota. My two Spark BFF's are the best! The thing that I hate is because my schedule at home is working 5pm to 5am with sleeping from 6am to like 2-3 in the afternoon I am kind of a walking zombie. They were so sweet and understanding when I needed to sleep and didn't give me grief about it. But I tried to get up so that I could actually visit with them.... which was the whole point of the visit! They taught me a new card game, and of course we lost because I suck but it was fun to learn a new game! We also played a game they taught me in Florida and that was super fun as well! We went to the Mall of America and of course the Luke Bryan concert! He is so dreamy!
I posted the pics of the concert and stuff in my friend feed... question... if you click on my Spark page and click on feed, does it say it's private? I never understand that because it's not, but not sure if people can see the things I've posted before. Oh well. I'll leave a couple pics down below for good measure (cuz he's THAT cute).
My long term goal I have decided is 160-170 and I still want my tummy tuck. With all of this regain I kind of put my tummy tuck out of my mind like it would never happen, but it still can happen. So I decided a tentative goal is to finish losing the weight in 2016 and 2017. Work on maintaining in 2018 and working on getting that tummy tuck, then 2019 is Disney World! This is just a goal with a very lax timeline, if it doesn't work out that way that is okay. If I never get a tummy tuck that is okay, I will go to Disney World someday and if it's not in 2019 that is also okay. But it is fun to think about! :)
I am back home, I only gained .4 after 5 days in Minnesota and 1 day at Disneyland so I'm ready to get back to business for sure!
I think it defaults to private. It's just the Feed, not the whole page, and I think to change it, you click on "Edit My SparkPage" and then check the box that says "Show My Activity Feed on my page." 1763 days ago
Awesome job on not gaining a ton of weight on your vacation! So glad you had a good time! I too have loosened my goals up a bit. I was trying for too much too fast and I think that was making me feel like eating!! So now I'm going to get it done - just without the pressure. So of course I think your idea is brilliant! LOL! 1764 days ago
Great job in not adding the pounds while on vacay...difficult for sure & your vacay sounds like a blast...Can just see Lukey singing...Kick the Dust Up!!!..I'd love to see that...you are so lucky! 1765 days ago
I was last in DisneyWorld in the 70s, and I loved it then! With all of the additions and changes it is still a magical place and a worthy goal! Your weight loss goals are admirable and achievable. Never give up!
The .4 gain is remarkable with all the traveling, and various venues!!! Proud of you and for you! And seeing your friends and having fun... the best of all!!!
Glad you had a fun time and isn't it great that it was only .4 gain. I think it was a great achievement if I am thinking of myself that is! I could be looking at a major gain. :( So Good job Stephanie!!! Woo Hoo you! Yes he is that good!
The page starchy stephy shows up when I click it but the posts don't always show up if you like the page for some reason. Not sure, might be the users feed setting. Glad you had a great trip! Looks like it was a blast! I have a disneyworld dream too! My husband thinks I'm obsessed. (I am lol) Will get there eventually! 1765 days ago
What a BLAST you had! I can see it in the pictures and I'm delighted that you decided to share them in your blog. I will go to your feed and see if it is marked private, or for friends only. There should me, at least there was back in the day, but with all the revisions, I have no idea where the area is that you click to take you off of private.
Okay, there's one question, that I have, as you left me hanging. What are the card games that you were taught?

Your feed is open to me, and I forgot to tell you, on not gaining but .4 pounds. I forgot, until I saw your previous feet and the scale! 1765 days ago
You'll need to be at your goal weight before you have a tummy tuck, then you can't allow yourself to gain or lose weight after. Weight never comes or goes where you expect after cosmetic surgery. It's a tough surgery, but you'll love the result! 1765 days ago
Only recipricol friends can see your feed - that means if they have added you as a friend but you haven't added them, then they cannot see your feed. This is a basic Spark setting which I don't think you can change, as the idea is to give you some privacy. Your plan sounds great - wonderful that you did so well with your weight while you were away! Hugs! 1765 days ago
