Back from Paradise!

Ahhhh....Mexico...sweet Mexico...I miss you, your sunny beaches and warm sand already!

I returned yesterday from a 19 day trip to Arizona and Mexico.  The impetus (if you aren't familiar with my Army Wife ramblings) was a 14 day visit with my soldier home from Afghanistan for RnR after being deployed for 9 months.  We also had a large family reunion over Turkey day.  

Short and simple....I had TOO MUCH FUN.

And I exercised exactly twice during those 19 days.  And I ate Frog eyed salad and 5 different types of pie and ice cream with caramel sauce.  I lazed around and pushed away the nagging "how much will I gain" question looming in my head.

The answer....ZERO!

*pause for the happy dance!*

April 24, 2013 - Start 264.4
Last weigh-in: 211.8
This week 208.2

Granted I didn't break any weight loss records over the past 2.5 weeks, but I didn't GAIN!

And so I set a new goal this morning after seeing that scale....
