So as you may know, I've really been struggling with this cycle of losing a few pounds and immediately gaining them back. On May 1st I, once again, made a recommitment to diet and exercise. I lost 2.6 pounds by the 10th, then we left for Hawaii the next day. My goal was to just not gain any while on vacation, as I knew to try to lose would be absolutely pointless. For the most part I did really good, avoiding most of the junk that the in-laws brought into the condo, but I did have a burger on our snorkel trip and some ice cream on the way back from Hana. Anyway, I reluctantly weighed myself the day after we got home and was shocked to discover that I had lost 2 pounds! What?!?? That NEVER happens! I usually can't even maintain my weight on vacation, let alone lose! Then again, I did start out the trip kind of sick and didn't eat much the first few days (more on that here).
Then yesterday I weighed again and was down another 2.6 pounds! In 6 days. And I wasn't even all that good the first few of those days (I had baked a cake with some eggs I needed to use up and had french toast and bacon one morning, albeit only 1 piece of each).
So anyway, I'm down a total of 7.2 pounds since May 1st. Whoo-hoo! My current short-term goal is to lose 5.4 by June 30th.
