We have been on vacation visiting our middle son, his wife and our new granddaughter, Lily (a living doll!) in Seattle. I've was surprised to see that I've actually lost weight while here. I know scales vary and all of that, but I'm hoping that the change of food, schedule and fitness have encouraged the weight loss.
Tomorrow we head home. I will be anxious to see if the weight loss holds. If it does I am considered, "overweight." Even though that doesn't sound great, it's an upgrade from obese. I'm very hopeful that I'm in that category. I may be doing the happy dance after weighing myself, or I may be in for a wake up call. Whatever the outcome, I know that I am motivated and committed to the program for a lifetime.
Our vacation has been a testing ground. I don't have much control over what I eat. I've had to make a few choices between "bad" and "terrible." I was happy that I tried to get the healthiest option in each case. We have been active, but not in the way I normally work out. Lifestyle change takes awhile to really take root, but it's so great when you see the fruit from it! I'm so excited to be on this journey with all of my spark friends who encourage me daily!
Let's make it a great summer!
