Just came back from a vacation to San Diego where I lived for about 20 years. I left there about 3 years ago and have only seen my best girlfriend once during that time. We were originally going to attend a steampunk convention but those plans fell through. My husband and I already had a hotel room booked and paid for so we decided to go down anyway.
It was fantastic!!!!
I spent 2 days with my best friend just hanging out and blowing bubbles. She kept commenting that I dont look my weight which I received with mixed emotions. I was glad because I DO carry the weight proportionately BUT...I dont want to become complacent in this journey. To be TOTALLY honest a big part of this undertaking is for vanity. I dont like the way I look when Im overweight. I dont like not being able to shop anywhere I want or to fit into cute clothes.
I was able to stick to my ten minutes a day of exercise. We went for a brisk walk on the beach and I swam some laps in the hotel pool.So that was an accomplishment. The eating part went totally out the window, but at this stage in my journey my movement is more important than my eating habits. I want to be so used to moving that it feels weird when I DONT exercise. In three days away I ate two very bad, very large meals. I wish I felt more disappointing in myself about that.
