We are on our summer "escape from the heat' trip, currently in Utah heading to Washington. Yesterday was such a sad day for me. My dearly beloved cat that I have had for 18 years since she was 6 wks old got out of our truck and we didn't realize she wasn't sleeping in her bed when we took off (our stupid fault for not checking twice) By the time we noticed she wasn't with us and we returned to where we had camped for the night she was nowhere to be found. I just pray that someone took her in and will love her like I did. I really need to get back to the discipline I had before we left. It's very different planning meals and eating when you are traveling and takes much more planning and preparation. I have gained 1 1/2 lbs which isn't too bad but I haven't lost anything in a couple of weeks. I'm thankful I didn't go on a binge of eating a lot of comfort food yesterday. I'm writing this to say to the Spark People world that I am going to do better and start measuring and logging in all my food again. I have never missed a day of signing in and spinning the wheel and I feel like this has been a big security line for me that has kept me connected even when I wasn't eating my best. So to me and anyone else who is not doing their best....we will persevere and overcome. I know there are many caring folks out there who care and even if I don't know you personally it encourages me to know we are all a huge body of folks with the same goals helping each other be successful,. Blessings to all who read this today.
