Weight: 166.8

I'm back! With about 2 1/2 pounds more of me. So tired this morning, long day yesterday. Now for the fun part---unpacking and doing laundry. I hate that part. Also back on the diet wagon. I'm almost looking forward to it. I'm tired of the room service brekky we had almost every morning---muffins, danish and tea. Oh, and fruit. I tried to get in as much fruit as possible. The veggies not so much. They were not as plentiful as the fruits. But I'm glad to be home anyway. Sorry no pics to show yet. I didn't really take much and none of me. And I swear, this will be the last cruise for me. I think they are more for the younger people, the staying up late and the sightseeing. I pretty much stuck with Mom and she hardly ever wanted to do anything. And I could have been $2600 richer now if I'd played my cards right but I'll tell you that sad story later. Gotta go now, time for brekky and Regis and Kelly. You all have a great day!

Progress as of today: -3 lbs lost so far, only 26.8 lbs to go!

Moody on 11/07/2006:
Glad that you are back!! 2.5lbs isn't bad at all for being on a cruise for a week!! All those foods at your beck and call; you did great!

Show us pics when you can!

WorkingIt on 11/07/2006:
Welcome back! And you didn't blow up like a balloon like you were worried about! I've read stories of people who have gained 10lbs on a week long cruise! Good job!

mattscat3295 on 11/07/2006:
Glad you are back. Cannot wait to see your pics. For being gone for a week I think you did great. I don't know if I could have just got by on 2 and 1/2 pounds. Hope you have a great evening.

Maria7 on 11/07/2006:
Welcome back, Soonie! We missed you! Don't worry about the pics...we really enjoyed hearing about your vacation as you sailed along in your cruise ship! Bet you did have a good time! BIG SMILE!!!!!

You guys are great, so many comments. Sorry, though, I haven't taken many pics. Really it has been kind of boring. I stick with Mom and she doesn't want to do much. I've done too much gambling and shopping though. We will all be soooo glad to get back home. tomorrow will be a full day. Long wait at the airport. We will be getting off the ship about 9:30am and our plane doesn't leave until about 3:30pm. that's the worst part of the trip. I miss you guys. I'll get back on here sometime after I get home, probably Tuesday. Hope you guys are doing well.

Dernit, I feel like i'm gaining weight already. I know Im not eating right. But I am trying to eat some good things. I'm not worried though. Today we dock at Acapulco. Can we say "shopping"? The weather is hot, hot and so humid here. Of course, the ocean WOULD make it that way, right, lol. Mom and I didn't make the Halloween party last night. It wasn't until 11pm so too late for us although we did dress up in our Hawaiian outfits (muumuus) Looked pretty good. Well, gotta go now and e-mail my other half. It's his 61st birthday today. Have a good one, everyone!

maria777 on 11/01/2006:
Wow! And you are still thinking of us!!! Have fun! (Don't worry about cals on vacation!)

WorkingIt on 11/01/2006:
Happy birthday to your husband! Don't worry about weight gain when you are trying to relax! Just do the best you can and enjoy yourself!

Okay, I just had to check in this morning. It's only just after 5am here and I'm ready to go. Our plane leaves at 8. Weight went down some, took a water pill to get rid of the bloat. I usually don't take them often. Feels good. Now for 8 days of no cooking, endless food, no cleaning, no making of the bed, lol. I'm pumped!! Have a great week, everyone! I'll try to check in while on the cruise. Aloha!!

P.S. BTC, we've heard about the vaccine and my DH is checking with his doctor about it. I guess I will too. I'm feeling sort of better this morning, thank goodness, but now the pain has gone to the skin on my inner right thigh, ouch. Not a comfortable place. Take care and I'll "see" you when I get back.

Thank you all for the nice comments! I was just in a real down mood yesterday morning but it has passed. But my weight did go up again, yuck! I sure can gain it fast! I don't think I'm eating that much. I'm going to try to keep it down today and drink lots of water so I don't have that bloat tomorrow for the trip. I hope it works. I will be getting up at 4:45am since we have to be at the airport at about 7. Have to pick up Sis and BIL and then Mom on the way. We will be traveling in a group with about 75 people. I hope everything goes okay as I woke up yesterday with a lot of pain in my left hip. It's really bad and right away I thought about DH's shingles. I hope I haven't contracted that but there's no rash yet anyway so maybe it's just a muscle pull although my skin there is very sensitive and sore, hmmmm. Otherwise I feel okay. Well, this will be my last entry for awhile or maybe I can make one on the cruise. They have an internet cafe right down the hall from our cabin and if it's not too expensive, I will take advantage of that. So today I will be packing. That's about it. Bon voyage and all that, lol. Take care, my friends, and keep up the good work. I'll be back!

Progress as of today: -3.4 lbs lost so far, only 27.2 lbs to go!

borntocry on 10/28/2006:
I just saw on the news that there is now a vaccine for the shingles. You might want to look into that.

Have fun on the cruise!

Gosh no - don't worry now. I have a friend that always says "Hey - it is what it is". That goes for anything. So - Hey "it is what it is" for now. There will be lots of days AFTER your vacation that you can concentrate on those things that you need to - but there will be only "X" number of days of vacation - HAVE FUN!!!

2 more days! I'm doomed! I'm panicking! I'm sitting here, my jeans way too tight, and I feel like crying. Why did I do this to myself?? I think I've always felt that I don't deserve to have this vacation or be thin or have fun. So I've sabotaged myself and now everything is ruined. It's way too late to lose any weight but if I keep on like this, in the next couple of days, I'll just be even fatter! And yet I just don't have the strength to do anything about it. Does anyone out there understand? I just need someone to understand. Sorry to be so down today. Isn't it ironic that someone who has such a great trip to look forward to can be so down? And yet I just wish it were over or that I didn't even have to go. What a waste! I did try some clothes on the other day and they do still do fit but not comfortably. At least I won't have to stay in the cabin the whole time, lol. I hate myself for letting this happen! I'll just be glad when it's over. Okay, you all have a great day!

Progress as of today: -2.2 lbs lost so far, only 26 lbs to go!

borntocry on 10/27/2006:
I understand, I always have the same problem before I go on holiday. I plan to do extra well beforehand so that I can look great and really enjoy my holiday, but as the date approaches I do worse and worse. I think it's partly because I feel like there's no point as I'm only going to put it all back on anyway. Or maybe it's the panic - I always react to stress by overeating.

Please try to enjoy yourself anyway. I feel like I ruined my last holiday in America by constantly dwelling on how much weight I'd gained since the last time I was there, and how if I had only been more careful I could be enjoying myself, eating whatever I wanted. In the end I ate whatever I wanted anyway, so I might as well have allowed myself to be happy and have a good time!

Go lounge around on deck and get some sun... you will lose the weight when you get back, you always do!

tourguidebarbie on 10/27/2006:
I do the same thing. I PROMISE that next time i'll be super thin for the next holiday/vacation, and then a week before, when i'm not, I don't even want to go anymore! Just Try to have a good time anyways. I know it's hard, but once you just forget about it for awhile, you'll feel better.

mattscat3295 on 10/27/2006:
I do understand, I believe alot of peoples best plans don't always work but you will be fine. Go on your trip, enjoy it and have fun, and like borntocry said, you will lose it when you get back. Take care and remember to have some fun.

maria777 on 10/27/2006:
Our last vacation, I started eating a couple days ahead of time and gained weight and had to wear larger jeans during vacation...but I still had a wonderful time and didn't let myself worry about it during vacation! You just have a good time and you can get back on track when you get back!

Suggestion: You could do a low calories-low carbohydrates menu til vacation time and that would help with fitting into the jeans.

Yooper on 10/27/2006:
OMG of course we understand, I know I've had many of those times. Just this past summer was my 30th high school reunion. I was the class athlete and am 80 pounds heavier than high school. I hated my self, but you know what, I had a ball and noone cared but me, and I even forgot about it. So don't worry. Have a ball on the cruise. No one even knows you there except you husband. Don't even worry too much about you diet. Have FUN!!!!!!! Can't wait to here about it. I am dreaming of the day I go on a cruise.

4 more days! I'm trying not to panic, eeeeek! Okay, today will be a very good day, I vow! I'm staying home for a change, getting some things ready for the trip and I WILL eat right! I want to keep it really low today, we'll see how that goes. Yesterday I took Mom to the doc, then Target, then we went to lunch at Macayo's!! It was yummy but look at the weight! It's supposed to go down, not up! I'm feeling really flabby too since I haven't been exercising. My worst part is the stomach, I look 6 months pregnant!! All my shorts are fitting tight around the waist but I will need to wear them on the trip. And you can't find shorts in the stores right now and I couldn't find any to fit better at the second hand stores either. I do have some muumuus though that I can wear on the ship when I want to feel comfortable. On shipboard, almost anything goes, even if you're fat and old, lol! I'm taking my bathing suit but probably won't wear it. But who knows, I've seen worse old ladies than I am wearing bathing suits on shipboard before. I may just want to get some sun or get in the jacuzzi(?) Anyways....

I forgot to mention, I went bowling by myself on Sunday morning, the DH has shingles and didn't feel like going. I bowled 6 games and did pretty well. 192, 175, 196, 215, 216, 203!! Not bad, huh? At least I'm good at something, lol! But I had fun. Then I went shopping and didn't get home until about 3pm. I had left for the bowling alley at 8:30am!! So lots of exercise that day. But the eating wasn't good, thus, I am still fat, lol!

Okay, time for brekky and I'm hungry! I didn't eat past 7 last night and I woke up at 3:15am feeling hungry so time to eat. It's almost 9am. Just a small bowl of the instant LS oatmeal and green tea. Then I'll just try to avoid the food until the next time I feel hungry. That's the plan anyway. I feel so gross! Well, hope you all have a great day. I'll try to get back here later and read. I miss you all!

TAKE YOUR SWIMSUIT! Have a great time and don't worry about what the other people on that ship think! I can guarantee that all the women are thinking they aren't slim enough! That's how we think lol. Wow great bowling scores! **HUGS**

borntocry on 10/25/2006:
I knew this would happen eventually. So much for that nonchalant attitude!

It's okay, after four days on the straight and narrow, you'll feel much better. You know how it is... it takes just one day for us to feel like we've been doing it forever!

mattscat3295 on 10/25/2006:
I agree with WorkingIt, definately take that swimsuit. What other people think doesn't matter. I hope that you have a great time. BTW, wonderful job on the bowling scores, WAY TO GO!!!! Take care.

smiley2 on 10/26/2006:
Oh im all excited for you! You must have a wonderful time on your cruise! Take lots of pictures and enjoy every minute! And forget about everyone else, this is you time to relax, so do everything full out! Eat, swim, tan, whatever you feel like doing! Remember to always be yourself, because the people that matter dont mind and those that mind dont matter!

Not much time today. Couldn't get here yesterday, puter problems, still not worked out completely. As you can see, not much progress with the weight. I'm going to just hate going on this cruise at this weight!! I had all that time to lose it and didn't. But I'm trying not to dwell on that and ruin everything. And when I think about it, it really makes me very mad at myself. 5 more days! Okay, brekky is ready and getting cold. Have a great day, my DD friends!

maria777 on 10/24/2006:
A suggestion...Limit calories to 1200 or 1300 a day and do a low carb for a few days...you will see a difference! Say no to breads, sweets, rice, and potatoes! Don't eat after 5pm! Bet you'd get down to 150's by cruise time!

WorkingIt on 10/24/2006:
Don't look at the negative, or what you think is the negative. Look at the positive, the fact that you are getting to go on a cruise! LOL I'll trade places with you, it is darned COLD here! **HUGS**
