Just after we rang in 2011, I joined Weight Watchers online. My last weigh in was Sunday and I have lost a total of 17 pounds. Not too shabby given the lack of major exercise other than shoveling snow. If you follow my Tweets, I have hinted about weight loss and counting points. Up until now, I have not felt the need to post about it since I am not dieting as much as getting back into a healthy lifestyle mode. Several blogging friends are also on this journey with me and I love that we have each other to talk to.
I have had success using Weight Watchers in the past. Before we went to Disney World in May 2009, I lost 30 pounds. The summer came and I stopped counting points, kept the weight off and then got VERY sick with H1N1. Even before this, I unofficially did Weight Watchers. When NHL was almost almost one, I lost almost 70 pounds and was pretty much at my goal. Going back to work, life stresses, a second pregnancy, and nursing slowly pushed my weight back to where it was after NHL was born.
Now I am back on track and hoping to increase my exercise level as the weather get nicer. Of course, we are going to the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration soon. I do not have to tell you that the food there last year was amazing. Let’s be honest, the food at Walt Disney World is some of the best food I have ever had. Here I am in 1983 eating with some characters you may recognize.
On our trip in May 2009, I stopped Weight Watchers while at Disney. Thanks to walking over 20,000 steps a day – I ended up losing weight eating what I wanted. My plan for this trip is to do the same. This is my vacation and I am going to enjoy dinner at Boma, breakfast at The Crystal Palace, a slice of Pop Century’s Tie Dye cheesecake, and other items if I want it.
So my question for you this week:
What is your favorite vacation dining experience and why?
