Default Two Mini-Goals in One

I had a pleasant surprise yesterday! I was trying VERY hard not to gain weight on my cruise last week... weighed in yesterday and LOST 2 pounds, yay! But the week of the cruise I walked 76 miles LOL so I knew that must be doing something!!!

Also finished my first million step walking goal and went over it -- I am now at 1,172,354 since I started keeping track sometime in February.

You must be SO thrilled to have LOST weight while you were on the cruise. That is just wonderful! All that walking certainly paid off.

I can't even IMAGINE 1 million steps. That's a L-O-N-G way! I know you've done it over a few months, but it still sounds like an awful lot. It will be interesting to see what your total for a YEAR would be if you kept track that long. You could have walked to visit ME! Well... as long as you were able to walk on water that is.

Well done on both of these Misty!

Take care,

Zelma

Thanks, everybody, for your support and encouragement! Oh wow the cruise was fantastic! I haven't been online much or said much since I got back because I have been catching up on my sleep LOL. I had sooooooo much fun that I am already planning my next one! I was thinking that would be a good reward for when I reach my goal weight... what incentive! And I still have 89 pounds to lose so that is a reasonable time frame to save up some $$$$. But I am looking. My friend in Fort Lauderdale invited me to visit her and go out of there!!! Only problem is I don't have anyone to go with... but I am considering letting the cruise line match me up with someone. I met people on this ship who had done that and it worked out. Of course rooming with a stranger would be a bit "different" but you don't spend that much time in the cabin anyway. Unless I can find someone to go with between now and then.
