Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

Recommended Posts

Traveling has always been my passion. But the last five years, because of my weight, I've picked less strenuous more leisurely places to go to. I can't wait to eventually get out and do some type of physically active traveling like hiking Machu Picchu. So my question is to all my fellow travel lovers, what are your future travel bucket lists once you get to your healthy weight?

Oh I looked it up. Its not that its a rule not to put your face in the Water, you just really really don't want to get that water in your eyes!

And recently there have been directives not to put your face into the waters at Buckeye Lake and Grand Lake St Mary's , the Algae Bloom is terrible this Summer!

I actually managed to do all the things I wanted while still obese because i truly believe life is far too short and tomorrow is not guaranteed. I plan reruns of my favorites and a few more but as I suspect I will be cold half the time so I'm skipping all cold weather climates.

💜 Have fun everyone 💜

Pompeii is incredible. I've done Dunns River Falls in Jamaica but I had to look up Dinoflagelletes. That sounds fun.

My family and I travel a lot!! It's probably the most expensive item in our budget but cutting it out is not an option. That said, it sucks coming home and looking through the pictures and realizing I purposefully avoided having my pictures by being the photographer or taking the least amount of pictures. Or, taking mostly selfies (because as the annoying phrase goes, she's got a cute face[emoji57]) and no body snaps.

Anyway, just an absolute vain desire to have a scrapbook of a wonderful locale with my face and body ALL over it[emoji12][emoji12][emoji12]

I do the same thing. It's sad but I'm just too self conscious. I can't wait to be comfortable in my own skin again and enjoy life to the fullest.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
