My goal was to maintain what I've already lost. I was able to maintain my weight loss and even lost another pound, bringing my grand total weight loss to...
Shane and I are puzzled that we did not gain weight on vacation. I've tried to think of how on earth I ate like I did but managed to not gain. The biggest thing I can attribute it to is that we shared our meals (except for that last day at Disney when I was hot, tired and grumpy and looked at Shane while we were in line ordering lunch and said today I'm getting my own combo! big butt or not i gotta do what i gotta do!)
So, our portion sizes were smaller and it was a very active trip-we walked all day every day.
When we got to Orlando we went to the grocery store. I picked up a carton of grape tomatoes. I never once even cracked into them. They traveled across 5 states with me and finally last night they got eaten.
When I look at the list of food we ate on vacation, it is a huge contrast to the new normal at our house. Last night I cooked Potato Corn Chowder and we ate Salads with it. It was the first meal I've cooked in awhile.
Tonight-My sister's famous Chili recipe. It is the best! I'm going to share the recipe with you later this week!
