Week 12...after a week of vacation...

I'm back again. I didn't write last week because we were in Florida, and I didn't have an official Friday weigh in (I also didn't get on a real computer all week).

Well, part of the reason I wasn't on a computer was because I was busy with more important things--namely, family time! I was able to walk and swim a lot with family, and it felt so good to be active like that! I don't miss a lot about Florida, but I sure to miss the flat places (and sidewalks) to walk on! I could walk half a mile with no problem there. But here, half a mile about kills me with the big hills.

I was more active while we were gone, but I did not journal or count my calories, and I did eat a lot. I expected to gain several pounds. However, I was pleasantly surprised that I weighed the same this morning as I did 2 weeks ago. Yay!!!

So, I am down 9.2 lbs. from the start of my blog.
28.6 lbs. to go...

My goal this week is to journal my calories every day and to strive for more intentional activity/exercise. I am hoping next week to hit the 10-lbs. lost mark. If I do, I want to put up some updated pictures. Maybe I'll put up pics for every 10 lbs. I lose. We'll see, Lord willing!


  1. Congratulations!!! 9.2 lbs down is awesome!!!! I'm jealous!

  2. Yeah! Glad to hear that you maintained your weight over a long vacation. I know you thought you were going to be up so I am glad you are the same. That is very hard to do, especially when vacationing. So, good job!!! Love you!
