I'm back from our little getaway and boy did we have fun! It was so nice to just relax and enjoy my daughter's company and get out in the spring sunshine! We went to several parks, played fetch with our dog in the lake, and I did a lot of smiling while watching my daughter run and play with her furry best friend! We did some walking, went swimming in the hotel pool, and visited with friends. Fun was had by all! I feel so refreshed, glad to be home and ready to get back into the regular swing of things.
This week, as I posted about before I left, has not been my best eating week. It wasn't awful, but ham is salty and while I cut back on the dairy during the week, I did have quite a bit of it on the weekend. Too much sugar, too. This week will be much lower sugar, carbs, and dairy and it will all balance out okay.
Here's how my eating was on the trip. At the hotel breakfast buffet each morning, I had a hard boiled egg and half of a strawberry-banana yogurt. Once each day I had an iced green tea latte from Starbucks with no syrup added. I packed some apple chips, sweet potato chips, cheese, dark chocolate, fruit, microwave popcorn and bottles of water. I meant to bring baby carrots... oops! They're still in the fridge! We ate at restaurants a couple of times; once I had a bacon cheeseburger (no bun) with a side salad and Ranch dressing and another time I had some really amazing Prime rib with steamed veggies and half a baked potato. I wanted sweet potato (not a nightshade) but they didn't have them and after a lot of walking I was really craving the carbs! I added butter and sour cream and it was delicious. On the way home last night I actually had an order of fries and a cup of vanilla ice cream for dinner. Not on plan, fried potatoes again... but you know, I feel pretty good. I won't make that a regular indulgence!
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
