Lucky you, JACARMY! Both on the year off work and the trip. I'm sure it will be even better if you lose some weight and feel better physically before the trip. Plus you'll have stamina to do more things.
I dropped from fulltime work with long hours and lots of stress to part time about 6 months ago (not an easy thing to find in my line of work) but I love it. Hate that I didn't do it years ago. The reduced income is nothing compared to the reduced stress and having time and energy for a life!
I wish you much luck on your weight loss journey. I think you'll find Spark is a big help. It's helping me in my quest to lose weight and improve my health. You've already done the hardest thing, which is to get started.

Consistency over time, not perfection brings fitness success.
Hello there!!! Glad to have you as part of our team. I feel that being part of the right team and staying active on it can make all the difference in the world so feel free to "chat it up" :) Sounds like you're getting ready for a really fun trip. I'm jealous! I wanna go on a trip like that. My husband is Scottish (not full, only part) and we plan to make the trip someday but the cost is holding us back for now. P.S. Love your dog wearing sunglasses picture. CUTE!!!!!
