One Week Till Awesome!!

Happy Wednesday Everyone! I am down 5 pounds this week. Undoing some of the damage of last weeks killer number. I haven't been perfect but I have been exercising every day and taking in more water. I am hoping that before I leave for DISNEY next week I can lose the last 2 pounds bringing me back to where I was before the disaster of last week. Can you tell I am a little excited about DISNEY????. It has offically hit me that I am going to accomplish some major goals next week.

1. Fly on a plane comfortably (relatively comfortably since no one is ever super comfy on those things) without a seat belt extender!

2. Ride on a roller coaster

3. Get back to Disney after a decade

4. GO TO HARRY POTTER WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! I am dying with excitement!!! I am pretty sure I am going to cry when I get there...copious tears of joy.

This is what this journey is really all about. It's not about looking better or buying smaller size jeans. It's about getting to participate in these things again. While it has been difficult, knowing that I get to do those things is worth all the frustration!! I am going to bring my Medifood with me but I am also not going to deny myself the joys of Butterbeer (non alcoholic wonderment from the Harry Potter books that they sell at the parks) or a wonderful meal out with my amazing boyfriend and his friends. I want to enjoy every single second of this vacation. For me that means not stressing about what I can and can't eat. I will make smart choices. Interesting observation about that. When I do go off plan I have found that I can't buy the foods I once did. I might want a donut or ice cream but when I look at the calories and fat it stops me dead in my tracks. I can't do it. Small victories people...small victories!


  1. Ah my Lynne - I knew without question you'd find your way back. I'm so happy for you that you are truly living now. I know that this trip is going to be an amazing experience for you. You are a wonderful friend and deserve all the happiness in your life. Love you!

  2. I am so jealous of you and your trip! I hope you have a MOST FABULOUS time. I am dying to visit the Harry Potter world as well. I even have his wand replica and the marauders map! (doesn't work for me, tho!).

    It is SO exciting and you will enjoy it so much since you worked so hard to enjoy it. Yes, small victories. Lots of small victories really add up!!

    Take care,

  3. WHEW! That is a fantastic loss. WOW! I want to have one of those kinds of losses: big and happy! Haha!

    I'm excited for you to go to Disney! Please take lots of pics (especially at Harry Potter's new place). PLEASE!!! And post those pics! I also can't wait to hear about you participating in things again. That IS such a motivator!!!!

  4. amazing! have the bestest time!!!

  5. you rock.
    keep writing!
    have a tremendous time at DISNEY!
