Challenge Update

Well I am smack dab right in the middle of my comfort zone again. Right where I want to be. I have also quit taking the prescription that I think was the culprit of the sudden gain. In fact as soon as I stopped taking it, the pounds started coming off immediately. Now I just hope being on vacation this week doesn't pack on too many pounds. I plan to make good choices, but will not deny myself a few vacation treats. I will let you know the damage next challenge update.

I am enjoying my time off so far. Of course over the weekend we had all of the usual stuff going on, so yesterday was the first day I really got to enjoy my time off. I slept in until 6:15 - go ahead and tell me how lazy I was. I spent most of the morning cleaning house. I really have a hard time enjoying doing nothing when I know there is something I really should get done, so I decided to get that out of the way first. After lunch, the kids and I went to the library - I know I am a nerd. They got some books on CD to listen to in the van, and I got a book to read by the pool. Problem is I started reading it last night, and if I am not careful I will finish it before we ever get near the pool. Today we will be packing and running last minute errands, so maybe I won't get too much reading done.

I am glad that the gain is reversing. Medications can really pack on the weight. I have found that since I have lost weight I have been able to get off of a bunch of medicines that I thought I would have to take my whole life long. I am sure that I am healthier because I am able to get through life without them. Well, take care, have a wonderful week and see you next Tuesday!

Yep, vacation can be a saboteur. :-) Enjoy yourself! Make good choices when you can. Path to Health

Some medications can be so nasty! I was on one once that made me shoot up 50 pounds in under six months.

Have a wonderful vacation. :)

Have fun on vacation, and don't be too hard on yourself. You'll get there, just keep your eye on the prize! Praying for you...

Vacation was hard for me. It is hard to watch the family eat while you ick away at a salad. Good luck and have a nice vacation!
