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.

    It's great that you had a good vacation and let yourself go a little, since you jumped right back into your healthy routine and lost almost all of your vacation weight. I am planning a month-long trip in September to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks followed by a 2 week trip in November to Africa. My weight loss journey is really aimed at my November trip since that trip will be the one that takes the most energy. So I am hoping not to ruin it too bad during gaining weight during the September trip. I imagine I will gain some. If I could keep it below 5 pounds, that would be great!
