  1. We were on Liberty at the beginning of September. I loved the lamb shank, rack of lamb, and duck in the MDR. So good!
  2. Hi all. I was down .9# on Thursday, and I was able to squeeeeeze into a pair of jeans I haven't worn in a while. They're a bit snug, but I can sit in them - so it counts, right!?!
  3. I was down .6# when I weighed on Thursday. Then we had junk all weekend and I was up just over 2 pounds this morning. DH and I have recommitted ourselves to our goals though - we have made final payment on our next cruise, so the pressure is on now! 😉 Congrats to all the losers and maintainers. Belle, I hope you have a great trip!
  4. I haven't heard of this before, so I asked my BFF Google to explain it to me. It sounds like a hard core keto for a few days which I could maybe do every once in a while, but I'm not sure I could eat mostly eggs for a few days. 🍳
  5. I'm going in the right direction this week, but if I'm going to blow it, it will happen tonight...the night before weigh in. 🙄 I have a hard time when DH has a hard time at the office and calls on his way home asking if he should pick up junk food for dinner. This week hasn't been easy for him, so I can feel it coming.
  6. We've looked for dolphins, but haven't seen any. When we left Galveston last month there were a ton of jellyfish around the ship during sail away, but the pictures didn't really turn out from the top deck.
  7. This week I was up 2.4#, but we have been eating out more this week - brunch, Mexican, pizza, and I stress ate a few carbs too. I had a huge Thursday wedding this week, so it threw off our schedule and the kitchen was torn up on weird days compared to a typical Saturday wedding delivery. I'm not upset by the gain; it will all go away next week when our schedule is back to normal I'm sure. We dump the kids' Halloween candy into a container in the pantry, and they can get a piece or two a day for dessert. We're almost down to the bottom of the container from last year's haul! Since I've gone mostly low carb, it doesn't call to me like it used to. If I'm going to have a piece of chocolate, I want it to be really GOOD chocolate, and M&Ms just don't cut it! 😉
  8. I bought new clothes for our cruise last month, mostly shorts and a couple tops. I could replace my jeans and get a cute pair of boots now that it's starting to get cooler. 🍂
  9. I finally jumped off that plateau! I'm down 2.4 pounds this week - hopefully next week I can lose 1.5 and be able to say that I'm officially down 30 pounds. 🤞 When I hit 30 pounds, I'm going to get a massage. Do you give yourself rewards for hitting your goals, and if so, what are they?
  10. I would blame all the gain on home. That way I would have another excuse to book another cruise... you know, it's good for my waist line! 😉
  11. Hormones can be so tricky. Stick to your plan and you'll get there!
  12. Hi heathersmoo! Welcome! I'm not sure that there are any strict rules here. I find when I post my losses here I feel more motivated, and when I post my gains along with what may have caused them I find patterns that trigger those gains. Either way I feel a little more accountable posting every week. You could always start by telling us your goals (is there a certain amount you want to lose or a dress you want to fit into by your next cruise?), and you'll get lots of support in return! Good luck towards your goals!
  13. Hi All, Sorry I've been MIA the last few weeks - life kind of took over! I have been the same - up and back down a couple times over the gap. I'm at my pre-cruise weight as of this morning, but I haven't been really motivated since we got back. We head to Vegas in a few weeks so maybe that will get me back on track. It's just under 4 months until our next cruise, so hopefully I'll be 50 pounds down from my heaviest by then! Only 24 pounds to that goal! This weekend will be so hard! I have an order in the oven so we're eating out tonight. 👰 Tomorrow DH and I are going out for our anniversary. ❤️ Sunday night my daughter is having a late birthday sleepover so... pizza, cupcakes, and donuts Monday morning. 🍕🧁🍩 Then I'm taking the girls out for bowling and laser tag. 🎳 Hopefully I can get a salad there, or the kids will be able to roll me down the lane! 🤣
  14. Sounds like a charter cruise with special concerts? I would ask the cruise promoter or travel agent for more info. There are no seat numbers or sections like a land based venue and the shows are first come first seated on a regular cruise.
  15. About day 3 of the cruise (day 6 of the total vacation) I had a slightly "upset tummy". Could it have been from the carbs? Maybe. However, we have 1 or 2 cheat meals a week with no adverse reactions, and by that point I had been off the diet for almost a week. It was more likely the multitude of grease the day before - pretty sure I ate my weight in bacon. #vacationbreakfasts
