: Yeah, I was a little nervous.
We spent last week on the beach for our family's summer vacation. It's crazy hard to stick to any routine when I'm out of my routine, but I'd worked too hard to blow it over a bag of chips or snowballs at the beach. We also had a 12 hour drive going and 14 hours coming back. How'd we pick up the extra 2 hours? Don't ask!!!!!!!!!
Leah had packed all of the essentials. We also love BBQ'ing instead of eating out, so I had hopes of staying below the 250lb mark that I'm determined to leave in the past.
We both did mostly great sticking to the plan, although there was the incident we shamefully call, the frosted cinnamon rolls morning of doom.
So when I hopped on the scale this morning, I was slightly optimistic, but prepared to kick it back into recovery mode to drop anything I picked up during the week.
The very cool plan of tactical eating shared by my cousins, @theseansilverii
& Ashley Silverii has kept me feeling full of the right stuff, and no longer gnawing for the junk.
BAM!!! I can't tell you how hard it's been to get rid of the weight I've put on after retirement. Fit after 50 isn't the same game as crash dieting or extra intensity workouts as a younger person. It takes planning, patience and persistence.
From 265 to today, it's such a blessing. My goal is to see the 230's (even 239.9) before August, and with the record 100 PLUS heat in Dallas this summer, I'm sure it'll just melt away - HA!!
I'm happy to be able to share my journey of reclaiming health after 50. Of course, I trust you know this isn't an advertisement, or boasting. It's just a great way of sharing and saying, you can do this too, but no one can want it for you more than you want it for yourself!!!
