I have finally learned how to eat when I travel!

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Well today was weigh in day and I was dreading it. I cam back from the cruise 4 lbs. heavier, up to 215! Yikes!!!! Today the scale liked me.... I lost almost 5 lbs., so it was water weight. I am so happy that I have finally done it, learned how to eat when I travel, that was a biggie for me, as we travel as much as we can. My Post-Polio syndrome will make traveling harder as I get older, so we go as much as we can now while I only need the walker to take tours.

I was worried about the scale and now I know I MUST have more faith in myself. Yes I might stray for a day or maybe 2, but in the end I am doing the right thing.

Now for the next 9 lbs to make it below 200!

    I always find it hard to eat away from home - sometimes at home isn't easy either! I'm glad you were able to enjoy your traveling inspite of your challenges and find a balance in enjoying travel food and eating for your health.

I know you're going to make your onederland goal and all of us sparklers will be right there to support and cheer you on!

Have a great week!
