I got up this morning and decided it was time to face my fears. I've been on a diet for a while now, it's been pretty slow going. I started out at a size 22 and went down to a size 16 pretty fast. I've been stuck on the sz 16 plateau for a while weighing in at the same point every time. We went on vacation over a week ago and I didn't stay on my diet and was dreading stepping back on the scale and was sure it was going to confirm my worst fear, that I had gained weight.
Today I am happy because I not only lost 6 pounds since my last weigh in, but I also broke my plateau weight! WOO-HOO! Haven't gone down another pant size yet but it will come. This has given me renewed strength to keep fighting. Yeah!
Well, we made it back from Biloxi. Had a great time, even though it was a twelve hour trip down there and back. We stopped at a lot of museums and aquariums, saw the ocean, went to the New Orleans Audubon Zoo, visited mom and John. On the way back home we stopped in Mt Ida and dug crystals at Gee & Dee Crystal mine. Found some nice big pieces an the kids came home with their own treasure (even a bunch of Mardi Gras beads as John walks in the parade with a walking club). Can't wait till next year. Now back to reality, school, work, school and more work.
