Good afternoon,

I had to take a friend to her drs appt this morning, didn't think I was going to get her there on time. The highway was backed up when I got on the ramp so I got off at the next exit and kept hitting every red light but I made it. Then she wanted something to eat so I had an early lunch. Thought I won a 1,000 dollars from this flyer I got in the mail but it was a scheme to get you to buy a car. I walked away with 2 dollars and a scratch off. Lol

B ham and cheese omelette and string cheese

L meat lovers omelette and raisin toast

D keto lasagna and broccoli

Qotd Easy one to get but becoming stronger.

Have a good day

That's it.

My body is stronger and leaner than it has ever been.

The biggest things is to make the commitment and stick with it.

I walked a lot but I also ate a lot more than usual which is why I'm not weighing myself until I've been back for a week (and staying protein forward and lower calorie all week).

Thanks for the pics! Looks like you saw some amazing things. Good job staying on goal. I remember actually losing weight during a trip to England -- lots of walking coupled with not so great food most of the places that we went. If we had stayed more days in London, it may have been a different story. The food in Spain was great, but the small portions and the walking worked against gain as well.

Oh man..so accountability: I forgot my chicken yesterday. I ended up eating skyr for lunch but was hungry soon after. Ended up eating the most proteiny, savory thing I could scare up that wasn't a protein shake: almonds. A whole bag. And when I got home, I was hungry and wolfed down the chicken I'd forgotten. I went over calories and carbs, and felt ick to boot. It was a failure in planning and in mindfulness. Today I need to keep it really focused.

B - Chike, cinnamon, fairlife, water

S - Breakfast sausage

L - Chicken and cheese

How are you all today? We are supposed to get the remnant rain from Hurricane Florence today, but right now it is sunny, warm and humid.

I am almost back to this time zone already and only have clean clothes to put away which makes me feel quite organized after 2 weeks of moving about constantly. My eating and drinking were on target yesterday, so I hope to be able to continue that through the week. My plan is to hold off weighing until Monday. I've found that after trips if I am really disciplined about my eating for a time period about 50% long as my trip before weighing myself that I am generally back to pre-trip weight at that point.

A collage of pictures is below (top 2 from Scotland, middle 2 from Ireland and bottom 2 from Paris).

QOTD: What would the title of your autobiography be and why? I think mine would be: No Straight Lines because though I am a goal setter by nature, I could never set them too far off and constantly have had to readjust over my lifetime. I planned to go to college directly from high school, but I got pregnant, married (divorced that one a few years later), and didn't finish college/grad school until I was about 30. At one point I thought I wanted to be in the medical field, but ended up in Insurance. I wanted to give birth to more children and we adopted our two youngest instead. I thought DH and I would work longer, then travel constantly when we retired, but now he has Alzheimer's and all our plans are made based on that.

2 Years, 5.5 months post-op (maintaining below goal for 21.5 months)

Always lots of coffee...

B: eggs, cottage cheese and Canadian bacon

L: Chicken

D: Shrimp

S: meat stick
