On the (very small) good news front, my weight loss effort is still chugging along. I was worried that the consequences of our vacation would be disastrous (brats, brownies, pie, ham, potato salad, etc were in abundance - Mom and Dad fed us well), but I actually didn't gain any weight, thank goodness. As of today I'm at 188.8, which is an 18lb total weight loss since January. I had to reset my goal, since I reached my first goal, so my new goal is my wedding weight (13 years ago next month!) - 173lbs. At that weight I'm a solid size 14, which is a short step away from the size 12 and below at which I feel more accepting of my body. I'm putting all of my too-small clothes into my eBay store, so I hope that serves as further motivation to slim down, so that I can reclaim it before it sells. And finally, here is another vacay pictures - this of Elle in her swimsuit before we hit the indoor waterpark at the hotel where Troy got married. I had such a good time there, watching the kids and playing water volleyball - it reminds me of how much I miss by living so far away. I have to say, now that they aren't kids anymore, my brothers aren't so bad LOL.
