    Default Another 'small' scale victory

    I've been doing a lot of traveling the past couple of weeks and I was worried about being able to maintain my eating schedule. I kept protein shakes with me for those times I couldn't easily eat reasonably. I didn't weigh myself for over a week and this morning I got on the scales and........
    I am under 180! I didn't think I'd EVER see myself getting back down the scale before my sleeve surgery. I feel so good on the inside that the compliments on my "outside" are just the cherry on top. This has been a life changing experience and I am grateful that I finally made the decision to get my life back. I'm happily making plans and traveling for the first time in years. It's a great feeling!

    Good for you! That's basically the only time I struggle, when traveling.

    Congrats on your scale victory!

    It’s a happy experience knowing I am able to get outside my comfort zone and still apply all that I’ve learned to stay healthy.

    “Mindfulness “ is my word of the day, especially when I’m traveling.

    You go girl!

    Yay for you! Savor your victory girl! I agree, eating healthy while traveling is a challenge. Sounds like you had a handle on it though. Keep up the good work.

    Yes, traveling is the toughest time for me, too. And I travel a lot.

    I like what WANAGL said: "Mindfulness" It's an excellent "word of the day." Over and over.

    Oh what a cool post to read! I find traveling isn't so hard, but then again my choices are limited as to where we go -- about all the travel is to Saratoga Springs, or North Myrtle Beach, or Raleigh. and they are familiar, so I rather know before we go, where we will eat.

    I find my challenge is not to indulge in "mindless" eating. So mindfulness may need to be posted on the kitchen & pantry door!

    Woohoo! Good for you. Anytime we step outside our normal routine can be a challenge. I love the "Mindfulness" thought idea. Perhaps I should get that tattooed on my hand so I see it every time I go to put something in my mouth ;-) I haven't had an issue yet but we have a big trip coming up so being mindful is going to be key.

    Congrats! I can't wait to see below 180. It's been at least 15 years if not more. Before the surgery, I really struggled to envision myself being successful at losing weight because it's been a battle for so long. What an amazing feeling to feel like you have your life back! That's an awesome NSV.
