Last night, Lucky and I returned from Jamaica. Old man winter had a gift of over 5cm of snow on our return. Quite the difference from what we woke up to yesterday morning. *sigh*
We had a wonderful vacation. We spent time visiting friends and of course relaxing at the beach and eating mounds of food (and a few drinks). Who do you think got the best tan? ;)
It was so nice to finally meet Lucky's friends and spend some quality time with them. One of my reasons for wanting to lose weight was to feel more comfortable when I met them. Guess what? I did!! Sure I still had moments of feeling gigantic compared to the other girls, but I tried my best to push those feelings aside and mute the evil voice inside my head. For the most part that worked.
I worked this bathing suit for most of the trip. Sure it's not a bikini, but that's ok. I felt comfortable in it, and that's what matters most. That picture was taken at Dunns River Falls. It was wonderful there. I didn't want to leave!
Now that I am home though, I knew I needed to update you all and step back on the scale. I needed to know how much I gained, cause lets face it, I knew I wasn't going to lose!
I did have intentions of working out when away. I brought my running shoes and everything. I never used them though. Lol.... I did not workout. Not in the "running on a treadmill" kinda way anyway. As I say this though, I must have done something right still cause checkout my scale results!!!!
Start weight: 246.5lbs
Weight prior to vacation: 223.5lbs
Weight after vacation: 226.0lbs
For a 10 day "all inclusive vacation" where I could have (okay... I did sometimes) eat my face off, I think gaining only 2.5lbs is AWESOME! I'm very pleased. I didn't even lose my 20lb milestone!!!! Lucky gained 12lbs...lol...TWELVE!!! Thank god I'm not a huge fan of rum! ;)
I'm definitely motivated to keep losing and the fact I don't have to re-lose too much weight again has helped. I think if I gained 5lbs or more I would have found it hard to start over (so thank goodness that didn't happen).
So stay tuned to more weekly weigh-ins and the start of "fight the lazy" fridays along with #100daysofsoup! I have way more weight to lose so I'm not going anywhere.
