Default Hello, I'm back!

Well, hello people!

I'm back from a totally totally wonderful vacation in Uganda (small country in East Africa...next-door to Kenya). Highlights included deserted beaches and beautiful lakes, hanging out with the monkeys in the forest, a boat safari (hippos, crocs and elephants), spectacular mountain scenery and many days and nights laughing and hanging out with my friends/family.

I also enjoyed a lot of very good food, and am proud that I had the courage to jump on that scale this morning, to find I only gained a couple of pounds. I'm right back on my eating plan, and will start exercising again this week, so I'm hoping to see that small gain off pretty quickly!

I start a new job tomorrow......and I am totally determined not to let a major lifestyle change undo all the good work I've done over the past months......so my fridge is full of healthy food, and I'm figuring out how to fit my gym/swim sessions into my new schedule.....

Congrats to all of you doing so well on the weightloss journey, and a big welcome to the many new faces!

Hi guys

Thanks so much for your welcomes!

Gretchen - hmm....what food did I eat??? Well some of my favourites were: African tea (tea, water, ginger, milk all boiled together in the kettle....); roast pork (spiced and grilled); fresh, just out of the lake, fish....roasted, fried, in soup etc; goat (spiced and grilled); pineapple, jackfruit, pawpaw, sweet bananas; groundnuts, and groundnut sauce......all of it tastes wonderful because its basically fresh out of the ground, and fresh from the lake/farm whatever.....

Sarah - yup, I did some serious, serious dancing.......to lots of local music....and I learned a few new moves, too!

I am missing my family/friends over there SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much; its always difficult the first few days back here......but I've decided to aim to lose another 30 pounds, by the time I go back at Christmas.......
