Off we go!

Well, we are ready to pack the SUV and go come morning!
I don't think I'll be at a computer at all this coming week, so I'll have TONS of blogs to read when I get back. 

All those who comment on my posts, thank you for your encouraging words. Thanks for taking the time to comment. You have blessed me more than you know.

I have been so challenged by all the blogs I read. There are many (maybe too many), and I don't comment on all of them, but I have learnt so much through the struggles that all of you face, and I've been encouraged by many of you.  To know that there is hope and success and happiness during this journey has made it less of a burdensome, restricted diet, and more of a getting to know my body and what works for me in order to lose weight. Of course, I haven't got it all figured out yet. If I had, I wouldn't be blogging about weight loss.

NSV for today: I finally saw a friend I hadn't seen in months and we didn't have alot of time to talk, but this is what I found in my inbox a few minutes ago:

hey, wanted to let you know that i loved seeing you today. I have missed you! I also wanted to let you know that I can not BELIEVE how much weight you have lost! I am really proud of you! I know how much work it is and I am proud of you! I love you! Have a great vacation

She knows how unhappy I have been with my weight, and she has been a person I've asked to hold me accountable in the past, but since they have moved we really don't have alot of opportunities to talk. And I never did tell her what I was doing as of the 25th of October!So it was wonderful that she noticed and took the time to encourage me in this way!

So we're off in the morning. I weighed in this morning at 254.6 lbs and will weigh in again ater we're back. Kinda think there will be a gain, but I'm ok with it, if it's only a small one. I'll be careful and think before I eat! And LOTS of water! And I'll try to get in a few long walks.

We are going to a place called Salto Cristal - We've never been so here's a picture off the internet. Isn't it beautiful!?!?!

And I will post pictures when we get back!
