Week One of Vacation

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

I made it through the first week of vacation by sticking to my plan. I did make some questionable decisions on gas station snacks (Slim Jims in particular), but I did not eat sugar or refined carbs.

I only lost about a pound so far. I am almost as a grand total of 20 pounds lost since the beginning. I am still hoping to get to 210 by the end of vacation on July 23. This might be a far-fetched goal, but I am going to do all I can to achieve it! I will stick to my diet plan, reduce the amount of cheese I eat, stay off the Slim Jims, boogie to the Phish shows (as I have been), be less lazy by setting up our campsite and loading the car between travel locations, and walking extra when possible.

I will not overindulge. I only did this twice in the last week, which is an accomplishment for me. I am really hoping to begin the school year less than 200. It has been two years since I was under 200. It only lasted a day or two though. Before that, I haven't been at a healthy weight since 2007. I am really looking forward to meeting my goals this time by doing things differently and utilizing this site for accountability.

    Congrats on the one pound. Any weight loss during vacation is a bonus. Loosing weight on vacation is a hard thing to do due to your body being off schedule, food issues, time crunches etc. So control what you can control and be happy with what you lose even if you don't meet your goal.
