My Weightloss Ticker

Thursday, August 6, 2009

Has it really been this long since I blogged?

I'm so sorry! And sad!

I bet you all thing that I fell off the wagon... or that I've gained all my weight back... or that I gave up in general.

It's not true!!!!

I am still here! I'm still trying! EEEEE!


Are you all gone? Did you all leave my blog forever?!

The funny thing is that I'm basically the EXACT weight as my last blog! Wow.

Sadly, since May, I have had some major fluctuations. I decided shortly after that post (did I already mention this?) that I would do Phase I of South Beach with a couple of other friends to see if that would give my metabolism a kick start. Boy, did it ever!

I lost 11.2 pounds in two weeks! After that was over, I tried to ease into Phase II... that was bad news. I fell really quickly. Not majorly... but I did gain part of the weight back. Then, right after that... I went on my Thirty, Flirty and Thriving Thirtieth Birthday Cruise. :)

That was THE MOST AMAZING vacation that there ever has been! If you haven't been on a cruise, please treat yourself. It's really not that expensive, especially since every thing is included... it was a real treat, and I don't think I've been that relaxed in a really long time.

Of course... I ate. A lot. And rum isn't calorie free! WHO KNEW?!

So, with all of that, a change in gyms (that's another story!), a change in trainers, and taking about 6 weeks to get over the fact that I wasn't on the cruise anymore... here I am... back to about the same weight that I left you at.

I will update my ticker right now.

I'm going to the beach with my family for a few days starting on Saturday. That will be a lot of great exercise and rest... and I plan to spend some serious time with God planning the next steps of my journey... So, come along... stay with me. I need your help!

Here are a few pictures from the cruise... enjoy.

the food was SO GOOD! this was the lobster bisque.

The day of my 30th birthday, we were on the private island all day. SO RELAXING!!

The second day of the trip, we spent some time at Atlantis in Nassau... it was very beautiful. This is a portion of the aquarium.

My sweet Edward... saying goodbye to Miami with me.
