So much has happened over the past two weeks. Of course with a wedding comes a honeymoon. Derrell and I went on a cruise
. The cruise was okay. I think the best thing was just being alone together. One of my Spark Friends, CARAFAE37, actually got married the day before us and was going to be on the same cruise ship. She and I made plans to meet. It was great meeting her and her husband, Ethan. We actually had to pull our husband away from each other; they wouldn't stop talking! Here is a pic we snapped the last evening on the ship:
After the honeymoon it was back to reality. Part of that reality was changing my Ticker. Over the past couple of months, in addition of the honeymoon, I managed to gain 7 pounds. While I am not proud of that, I am not distraught over it either especially since I thought I was back in the 230's. To ensure I get back in the game, I joined Weight Watchers (the meetings). I love the support I get from Spark but I also need physical, face-to-face support. I used to get that from my sister in the past but she slowly dropped out of the picture. Plus, I think weighing in regularly will help; I have scale fear and that is how the weight creeps up. Thus far I have stayed on the plan. I did have a Jones Bro. cupcake but I also had a huge NSV. Like clockwork, I bought Derrell two cupcakes and myself two cupcakes. Each cupcake is 11 points. I ate one cupcake (I took off about half of the icing) and saved the other. The next day I thought about the Point Value of those cupcakes and whether it was worth it. I decided it wasn't so I gave it to my husband. I have also managed to eat five servings of freggies everyday and that is HUGE for me. Zucchini and yellow squash are my new favorites. I am tempted to try eggplant.
My physical activity has not been the best. In a few minutes I am leaving for my first Zumba class in about a month. I hope I survive! My goal next week is to weigh-in at 219. That is just under 3 lbs. I don't expect to maintain those types of losses, I am just eager to get back in the teens and out of the 220's.
Another NSV I have had recently: I bought my first clothing item out of the Juniors section since I was TEN YEARS OLD!!!
Well I have to get going to Zumba. Love you guys!!
