Back from VayCay and Making Plans

I finally have a few months with limited travel – time to focus!

I survived 3 weeks at World Cup without gaining any weight – all that walking and heat actually shaved off another couple of pounds despite all the food and alcohol!

Given my good fortune – I’m taking it as a sign to keep the train going and jumpstart my plans to reach my initial goal weight by October 1st.  Roughly 2lbs a week for the next 14 weeks – that’s actually pretty reasonable.

Now it’s a matter of strength, focus and willpower.

I think I can do it – therefore I will.  That’s actually going to be close to two months away from the 1 year mark of when I started this journey, so I really want to meet my goals by week 52.

My travel schedule picks up pretty significantly again this Fall and I want to be ready for the fun to come without worrying about how I look.  I’ve lost over 30 lbs already, but there is still much work to do!

I’m back!!! Two weeks in Europe and today was my first day back at the gym.

Spin class was great and the saying is true – you never regret a workout!

Working on setting new goals for the rest of the year and maybe even the rest of my life.

One thing I am happy about – one of many- having lost the 30 lbs and being more physically fit made me so much more confident on my trip that I could walk anyway and do anything and even take pictures unfettered by insecurity. I’m not where I want to be ultimately, but where I am right now is just fine too!

I’m on my journey with so much more to come!!!

On November 24, 2013, this number was 229.1.

5 months later and this was the number on my scale this morning. I’ve now lost 33.5 pounds. It’s taken a lot of work and discipline, but in some ways, it has been a very natural change. I still have more weight to lose, but I’m so much closer than I was!

Stay focused, even if you get off track. The results will come.
