Vacation is over :((

Well, it's back to reality tomorrow.  My vacation is over.  WAHHHHH!  I really could get into this not working thing.  I'm sure I'd be bored in the winter, but in the summer it's great.

This also marks the last day of what I labeled the "experiment" of not logging calories and exercise.  The result?  Broke the nasty plateau and I'm down 2 pounds.  So, I guess it was a success.  Therefore I'm extending it.  I really am at goal right now weighing 121 - I'd like to see 119, and I think I will, but after that, it's normal for the body to bounce around within a few pounds.  

I had gotten really obsessed with calorie counting, and I don't want to be one of THOSE people.  So I'm going to see how my week goes of being back to work and not logging.  Then I'll make a decision again in one week.

Oh, and guess what?  I run my first 10K race next Sunday!!!  Wish me luck!


  1. Hi Jennifer! I have just read through your whole blog! What an inspiration you are. I have lost 97 lbs and have maintained this loss for 11 months now. Let me tell you, in a lot of ways, I think maintenance is harder! I am a scale whore and I weigh every day. It works for me but now it's like, 139, again? Still? Not the same as getting on and waiting for those loses to register.

    Anyway, I found you over at mmh as I am getting a FTT on 7/31. I'd had a thigh lift and BL back in January and this is the last surgery! I would like to "follow" your blog but I don't see a join button. For now I've bookmarked it and will check on occasion.

    I pray that I am able to get back to exercising as fast as you but I know we all heal differently so will listen to my own body.

    I wish you continued success on your journey!

  2. Hi Jacquie! I added a thing on the right to make it easier to subscribe if you are interested!

    I wish you the best of luck on your TT. I didn't think at the time that I was healing extra fast, but looking at other posts and talking to my PS, I guess I was! I hope you do to!

    I am very nervous about maintenance! Hopefully I have the tools I need!
