Today we begin our summer escape from the heat of Lake Havasu in the desert and will spend the next 4 months in our RV. Right now we are in Mesa and I will have my very baggy eyelids operated on this Friday. I had Graves disease a couple of years ago and my eyes swelled up something awful. My thyroid levels are now normal but my eyelids are very baggy so I'm getting then fixed. It's a little, or maybe a lot scary because the list of possible side effects is long but I have a great plastic surgeon so I have to just trust him. Then we will ultimately end up in Washington on the western edge of the Northern Cascade mountain range and we will be camphosts at an RV park for about 6 weeks. We did it 2 years ago and we loved it there. Great scenery, great organic produce available as well as fresh eggs. This trip requires a HUGE shift in my cooking. It's all too easy to eat things
that are just easy to throw together but those things aren't usually healthy so I need to plan and not be lazy. The pool is right across the from our RV so I want to get over there today. There is also a fitness center I need to find. We have our bikes
with us but it's too hot to ride now, at least for me. Maybe in the evening. In order for eating right to work for me I need to plan ahead, really the sane as at home only my kitchen is smaller and so is my refrigerator and freezer. I am so thankful for SP because I can log in everyday (even from my cell phone if I need to) and stay plugged into my support system. It's a little scary because I don't want to gain any weight back that I've lost but I trust that the Lord will guide me and lead me and I WILL BE SUCCESSFUL.
I don't think I've ever started a weight loss program with such determination to succeed. I intend to be a winner, a slim and trim one.
