Back from Vacation -Many changes happening

Sunday, April 21, 2013

I had a amazing time in London, Paris and Scotland. I lost a pound while away I ate well had some desserts but walked everywhere. I lost another 1.25 pounds this week. I am just 1.5 pounds from my goal weight. emoticon Upon return back to the realities of life, work, dead car batteries, $2000 in dental work. Thursday was my birthday emoticon to me. My sister took me to see Barry Manilow. I can't believe I am 47 years old I feel so more confident. I feel so much younger. I feel good in my clothes and I can now fit in all of my clothes in my closet, While in Europe I realized how many more things in my life I have yet to see and that my life is a unwritten book, I also realized I am ready to move forward from divorce and start to seek someone for my life. I now feel like I know who I am and what I have to offer someone else in a relationship. I am having difficulty getting over all the lack of sleep and jet lag. I am giving myself a week break from any serious working out. Back to Turbofire tomorrow. It was fabulous seeing London, Stonehenge, Paris, Edinburgh castle, Oxford, Stratford on the Avon. It was great spending time with my cousin and my niece. I am thankful to God for blessing me with this opportunity, I am forever changed.

    Welcome home and I hope you had a very happy and awesome birthday! I love being 47, I feel like I am old enough to know more than when I was younger, but still young enough to recreate myself and do whatever I want to do!
    I am so glad you enjoyed traveling in Europe and congrats on losing weight while doing it! We were in Paris last year so I know how much walking you do while there.
    Have a wonderful year and I hope you get over the jetlag soon. That was always the toughest when returning from Europe! emoticon emoticon

    Great vacation. Glad your back. Hope you have a good dental program. I have had some work on my teeth and they don't do it for free.

    Congratulations on your wonderful trip and even losing weight from all your walking!
    What a grand adventure and good reflections on this transition in your life. Life IS what we make it. I feel like you do, I am rediscovering who I am and what I want to do.

    Just think all the lovely memories you will have as you walk, exercise and go about your days in the months ahead!

    So now you can start planning your next trip! emoticon

    Oh, I am so jealous. I haven't been in Europe in 8 years, and still have my entire German family there. Also, haven't been in France in many years, and had spent time and went to school in Lyon and Paris, during my youth. Lived and went to school in London and Cambridge for a while. Would love to return and see how things have changed. This has all happen before I ever decided to move to the U.S.
    Happy to hear that you had a fabulous time, and are now looking into the future, with new-found confidence. Wishing you luck in reaching your goal.
