Super Weekend

I'm going on vacation next week; actually leaving just after the SuperBowl. That in and of itself is going to be quite the challenge: having to ignore the chicken wings, chips, dips, cookies and other great snacks! Then, I'll be in Pigeon Forge, TN for a week with a group of friends. I'll be sure and post photos when I get back.
Thus far I've lost a total of 11.5 pounds in about 3 1/2 weeks, and I'm pretty pleased, especially since I hadn't really started any exercise program. The first week was pretty tough: NutriSystem portions are soooo SMALL!! Now, I realize that those are simply normal portions. Little did I know. I've started walking during my lunch break--just a 20-25 minute brisk walk around downtown. I come back to the office a little sweaty, but it seems to be working and so far it's the only time I can find to squeeze some exercise in to my hectic day. My next mini-goal is to lose 9 pounds during the month of February. Baby steps...

Congrats on your success with the weight loss. I wish I had half of the determination you've got (but someone's got to eat those chicken wings, so I'll take the hit). I'm sure you will have a great time in TN, so I won't wish you a good time. Enjoy it for all that it is. It's a beautiful place with nice people. What else could you ask for? Enjoy. Think of me, down here in FLA, working like a dog, spending my free time with 28 year old virgin/divorcees. No matter how bad things get, it's always better than that.
