"Have To Stay Focused"

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

I just got back from South Carolina. My daughter's wedding was being held there. Wedding preparations, good ole fashioned southern cooking, and stress are not a good combination for someone on a weight loss journey. It's would have been easy to loose all of my sensibilities, but I did not. I kept it to a minimum. Lol

The hotel had an exercise room, I used it daily for at least 30 minutes. I didn't skip meals, boy did I not skip. I ate my fruit and veggies. Had dessert twice in 5 days. All in all I think I did pretty well, considering. I gained 2 and a half pounds and honestly, until I weighed myself today, I thought I had gained a whole lot more. I'm still learning what works and what doesn't. emoticon So for the next couple of days I will be drinking lots of water, and getting some much needed rest.

On the 5th of July, I will be celebrating my second anniversary with Spark People, and I am happy to say... I am on track, still focused on my healthy new life style!!! emoticon emoticon

    Good Morning Lighthouse:

Living in South Carolina with all this southern cooking is a daily task just having to say "no". I salute your will power and continue doing what you need to do to get the results you desire. We, your spark friends, will all celebrate and rejoice with you.

Congratulations on your daughter's wedding.

    Congratulations on your daughters marriage. Sounds like you had a good time and those 2 and a half pounds will be gone in no time. Hope I can do that well this month when my family and I go on vacay.

Welcome Back!

    Sounds like you did well and I agree with KAUAI-CAROLANN...flying and sodium probably account for that tiny gain. You'll flush it with water and getting back to a normal routine. emoticon

    You are awesome! emoticon

All you had going on, stress, wedding kept the end in sight.

I'm going to guess that sodium is a big factor and if you flew on a plane, that will add to the gain as well.

Rock on!!

    Exercising 30 minutes a day on vacation - um, can I say rock star!!

That is impressive!

Resisting Southern cooking, even keeping it at a minimum is stellar!
