The next level
Friday, March 25, 2016
I spent two and a half weeks in Hawaii in January and gained at least 10 pounds. After I got back, it took me another two weeks to get back on track with my eating. So in all, I probably gained 15 pounds. Eventually, I got back on track with my eating and dancing and working out. Now, I'm only about 3 pounds heavier than I was when I got on the plane on January 7.
It's a relief for me to know that I have the skills to get back on track after a prolonged slip. I never had that before, but I need to gain the skill to keep from slipping in the first place. I was very proud of the fact that I was able to lose my vacation weight fairly quickly, but it's sobering to think of where I might be if I had stayed the course in the first place.
I have about 30 more pounds to lose to reach my goal. I need to make some changes to get there.
I plan to blog more often about my progress. Maybe that will help. I hope to start a video diary to track my dance progress. I also need to cut out or cut back on my weekend snacking. This weekend will be my first test. We'll see.
