I’ve been enjoying my week. I felt good about the weight loss last week and since that time I decided this week (for only this week) I’m not eating bread, potatoes or rice. For me that’s extremely tough! We’ll see if it gives me a jump start. And I’m hitting the gym too. We all know it’s easier to stay motivated when you’re losing – a little tougher when you plateau.
Even more fun this week, Nick and I are talking, emailing, communicating. It’s been nice. It’s relaxing – I know that may sound strange but the relaxed feeling means not worrying about whether this happened or that happened. We are just happy with where we are and we both feel like we are moving forward along our path.
We are also trying to plan a couple of trips. It’s time we head to New York City to see LJ and Colin. Hopefully we can to that sometime before school is out and then maybe, maybe we can take a big family vacation this summer. Mollie is graduating, LJ will be finishing up his first year in NY – seems like a good time to celebrate to me. Our last big family vacation was 7 years ago. It will be great to get us all together somewhere both interesting enough for the ‘kids’ and at the same time a bit relaxing for us all. Now I’m going to work to lose enough to enjoy both of these vacations without worrying about a pound or two.
