Cruise Ship Bound

Hi! I'm Vicky - A 50 year old first grade teacher. I want to get healty enough to really be able to enjoy a cruise with my husband, sister, and brother-in-law in April 09. Hope to lose 100 pounds in a year!

UPDATE 4/19/09: I enjoyed my cruise at 90 pounds of that 100 pound goal. It is amazing how the closer I got to reaching my goal, the more ways I found to sabotage myself. Still, I found that I was able to keep up with everyone and do everything the rest of my family did ...

UPDATE 4/19/09: I enjoyed my cruise at 90 pounds of that 100 pound goal. It is amazing how the closer I got to reaching my goal, the more ways I found to sabotage myself. Still, I found that I was able to keep up with everyone and do everything the rest of my family did plus a little more! Not only did I walk from one end to the other of the ship countless times, I snorkeled, climbed a lighthouse and climbed to the top of some Mayan ruins. Unfortunately, I ate a lot too. Now I'm one week post cruise and am trying to get refocused to take off my cruise pounds and keep going from here. All in all, it has been a fantastic journey so far.

Update 1/20/11 I'm not QUITE starting over, as I am still 25 pounds lighter than when I first started on Spark, but over a year and a half off Spark, not eating right, not exercising, I'm unfortunately not looking a bit like my beautiful cruise photos. I'm on day 3 of trying to get back on track. I know Spark People works, it is only when I think I don't need the support that I fail. Check back for more updates. I want to wear my purple gown again!

Hi Vickie,

It was good to see your name come up on my friends feed. It has been awhile since I have seen you posting and wondered how you have been doing. Glad to see you are making progress towards your goals.

Hope you have a great day.
