This morning I was looking back on my weight loss to see how I have been doing. I realized that I have lost a little over ten pounds since I have been in Lynchburg. That's not too bad. My weight loss has definitely slowed down at times, which I expected as I got further into the program. When I got on the scale this morning, I was excited to learn that I was down 2.2 pounds!! That was an awesome feeling, and exactly what I needed. So now I am down 47.8 pounds. Since I leave for Wisconsin on Saturday, I think this was a great motivator to keep me going while I am away.
I cannot wait to get back to Wisconsin and see my family and friends. I leave on Saturday and Chaz will get there on Thursday. We are staying at a cottage for a week with my parents, and we are looking forward to a nice relaxing vacation. This is a cottage we have stayed at before so I already know that there are great places to walk and swimming can also be a great exercise. Outside of exercise, I am really excited to get some sun, jump in the water whenever I want, hang out at the fun little bar and grill down the road, and fishing!! I love to go fishing with Chaz and my Dad, and try to catch bigger fish than they do! Sometimes that happens and sometimes it doesn't.
The week before we go to the cottage, before Chaz gets there, I will be staying at my parents house in Neenah. I am going to try to see if I can go to the YMCA there while I am visiting. I am loving going to the Y here and really enjoy my deep water fitness class every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Sometimes I go in between and just bike or walk on the treadmill. Tuesday, I went and rode the bike for 10 miles. That was a lot for me, I was pretty proud of myself. So I am hoping the facility in Neenah will honor my membership and let me come in and exercise a bit. I know I will need the exercise since I will be going out to eat and for drinks with my friends while I am there. Hopefully my motivation arrives with my bags in Wisconsin, and doesn't get lost during the flight.
I am so excited for vacation!! Hopefully I can report back some good progress when I am back! Unfortunately I won't have my own scale while I am there, so we will see if I am able to weigh-in, otherwise I might just have to wait until I get home. Wish me luck!! Have a great week!
Until next time...
