I had set a goal for myself of getting back down to 157 by today. With vacation, traveling to visit relatives and for work my weight had crept back up a little bit. I'm fairly happy to report that this morning I weighed 157.5. Not exactly my goal but pretty darn close! I've set a new goal of 154 by July 4. That's about a pound every other week, and should not be too much of a stretch. The only challenge I foresee at this point is a big family weekend with my boyfriend's family for his father's memorial coming up.
Switching gears, just want to let you all know how happy I am that I bought travel insurance for our cruise last month. As you know we had to leave early - my boyfriend had to get off the ship in Mexico and fly home from there and I changed my plane ticket to fly home one day earlier than scheduled. We also had a non-refundable hotel reservation. I usually get travel insurance when we plan trips like this in case we have to flat out cancel. It usually costs about $100 or a bit more depending on the trip, I've bought it a couple of times before and never needed to use it. Well, I am SO glad that I got it this time - the plane change for my boyfriend was almost $800, mine was almost $300, and the hotel room was over $200, and we got a nice check back that covered all these charges, plus the three days of the cruise that my boyfriend missed. We're not exactly rolling in dough (the hotel room was a wild splurge for one night) so it was nice to get the money back for these unforeseen expenses.
