Losing It! 11 26 10

The day after Thanksgiving… the best time to talk about weight loss – right? But, we need to talk about it. If not losing, then maintaining. So, how did everybody do this week? I’ve been at Disney World and then the beach with the extended family. MANY opportunities for really good food.

And, I didn’t deny myself. Not really. The thing is….I don’t WANT to eat like I used to. It makes me sick to my stomach to eat the way I did a year ago. It truly does. I didn’t get popcorn once while at the parks. I didn’t get one Mickey ice cream bar. Both of those were a daily purchase at last year’s trip to the parks. I only had one caramel apple, and only because it’s my favorite thing from Main Street. I ate one big meal each day and then kinda snacked around it. That worked for me. As far as exercise went – well, um, I was at Disney World. There is A LOT of walking involved with just being there. A LOT of walking.

Then, at the beach with the family, I ate a decent dinner every night. I didn’t deny myself. Again though, I didn’t want to eat as much as I did last year. My breakfast and lunch were pretty small – this is mostly due to the fact that it is HOT in Florida. And, heat makes me not hungry. I seriously don’t want to eat much at all during the day. As for exercise, my sister-in-law, G, kept me exercising. We walked for an hour on the beach EVERY morning. I’m not talking a leisurely stroll. G is a spin instructor – as in those crazy bike riding classes. So, to say she is fit is an understatement. She went a little easy on me, but we walked at a good clip. It was great to have her keeping me exercising even while on vacation. Thanks G!

My Walking Partner and I

Since I’m at the beach, I can’t weigh myself. However, I don’t feel like I’ve gained anything. We shall see when I get home this weekend. I’ll let you know where I stand next week.

How is everyone else doing on the CONTEST? We had several ladies with loses last week! Way to go gals! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to be able to give the grand prize to someone who LOST weight. And, I’d LOVE LOVE LOVE for EVERYONE to be eligible for the second prize. Wouldn’t that be amazing!

So, link up ladies and let’s support one another.

  1. Oh Kathy! A sister-in-law who’s a spin instructor! Wow!

    I linked up above although I really was having second thoughts since I gained a pound. But I thought that’s one of the reasons I like our Losing It! group….keeping me accountable.

    It sounds like you’ve had a wonderful Disney World/beach Thanksgiving and have kept active and eating responsibly throughout. You rock!

    See you next week!

  2. So happy for you Kathy! I know what you mean, I have been eating smaller portions for a while now and while I did not restrict myself on Thanksgiving I def. did not want the copious amounts I might have been tempted to have in the past. You look amazing btw – but you are always amazing 🙂 Glad you had a great week with family in the warm Florida sun!

  3. Glad you had a great time! So jealous of your beach time when I spent my last week shoveling snow!
