Happy New Year my friends!
I'm coming to you live from sunny SW Florida! We arrived to N. Ft. Myers on Saturday with temps of 79 & plenty of sunshine! Travel was uneventful as we had excellent weather & road conditions! I found it difficult to eat right while traveling though. I was able to exercise before we hit the road each day ...& I even maintained my 10,000+ steps because I walked around every time we stopped!
Since I've lost almost 50 lbs since last summer, I've had to go shopping for summer clothes! Ya see, I was wearing a size 3X last summer, & now I wear a PXL! I had to buy new swimsuits too, as I was wearing a size W26 last year....& now I wear size 16!
I'm a happy woman!
I'm only down .2 this week, but considering I've been off my routine...it's not too bad! I'll take it!
I'm looking forward to walking outdoors for now on without wearing all the winter garb! We are currently staying in a quaint community with plenty of areas for walking. Hubby & I have been getting out & walking daily. It feels so good! Our condo is beautiful...& we have a lovely lake view w/plenty of palm trees! If I can figure out how to get pics on here w/my laptop, I'll post them!
My biggest challenge for now is getting accustomed to using my laptop & getting my mojo back! I'm a little discouraged that the network I'm on is so slow & it takes me twice as long to do things on Spark. I miss staying connected to all my friends! Please know that even though I'm not Sparkin as much....you're all still in my thoughts! We won't be able to get a cable hookup until April because that's when we will be in our annual place! Hubby & I are staying in Ft. Myers for January & February...& we'll be on Marco Island for the month of March. We're hoping to get an annual in Naples. I'll keep ya posted!
My hope for the new year is that I WILL reach my weight goal by June 1, 2011! This breaks down to around 5 lbs per month! Very, very doable! So, I'm putting the pedal to the metal...& gunning forward! I CAN do it!
Me by summer!
Now, let's get Sparkin' my friends! We can do this together!
