Weekly Weigh-In #16

This week I lost 1.0lb for a total of 48.5lbs lost.  I'm definitely happy for the loss, but I didn't do my best this week.  I did good getting in all of my planned workouts, but I kind of slacked a little on the eating.  Nothing horrible, but I know I could have made better food choices this week.  That's ok, I am planning on working really hard this week before I head out on vacation.

If anyone is on My Fitness Pal, look me up!  My username is andrealeigh23 or send me your email and I will add you.  

Speaking of vacation, does anyone have any helpful tips for eating good/exercising while on vacation?  It makes me a little nervous to be away from having access to the foods I normally eat and not sure if I'll have trouble eating things or will be able to find healthy choices that agree with my band.  Any suggestions would definitely be appreciated!

So the private island didn't end up working out because their house is currently under construction, but we were able to get a condo on the island of Roatan that is so beautiful!  The 2nd largest barrier reef in the world is right outside of the resort and you can just swim out to it for amazing snorkeling.  Here are some pictures of the resort.  I'm so excited.  We will stay here for 3 nights, in Tegucigalpa where my sister lives for 3 nights and then I'll be in South Florida for another 3 nights.  
This is the resort and you can see the barrier reef right out front

So here is my plan before I leave on Saturday (6 days)!
  • Workout 5 days.  (3 days cardio/strength and 2 days yoga)
  • Plan my meals with healthy food choices
  • Eat only planned food
  • Take vitamins
  • Drink at least 64 oz of water

Hope everyone has a great week! Just FYI to my secret bandit, your September gift will go out in the mail this week!  :)


  1. SERIOUSLY???!!? Can you PLEASE take me with you?! I went on my honeymoon in June. We went on a cruise to Cozumel, Costa Rica and Panama, the food wasn't that great and I struggled with options. My one saving grace was my protein powder every morning! I brought enough Click sample packs with me to have every morning. Have fun!

  2. I think its awesome that you are going to Honduras! I too am planning my first post-op vacation and worry about food choices. I think you should stick to what's safe. It may be tempting to try new cuisines but just try to remain band friendly. You'd hte to get sick and possibly ruin a lovely vacation. Have fun!

  3. You take great vacations! I haven't ever been anywhere tropical! It's the diapers and baby formula taking all my money!! lol. This will be amazing!

    Good luck with your goals this week! Always rooting for you!

  4. Oh, you are taking my fav kind of girlfriend vacation ... I get relaxed just thinking about it !

  5. You look beautiful!!! Don't sweat the bad choices last week. You have figured it out and you are moving on to doing it all right this week.

    Have fun in Honduras. I'm relaxed just looking at the pictures. Be safe.

  6. Take me, take me, PLEASE!!!! I'll be quiet as a church mouse and you'll not even know that I'm there!!!

    Looks absolutely amazing!!

  7. Look, there's a SHARK! You better not go. You should stay here and let me go suffer the possible shark bite. ;)

  8. Looks gorgeous! Can I come too?

    Great job on the weight loss again this week! I've actually started utilizing hotel gyms when I go on vacation but I tend not to worry too much about what I'm eating...I love seafood so I tend to stick to fish. You can also take long walks on the beach, swimming or some kind of walking tour while you're there.

  9. So much fun!! I want to go!!

    Vacations are not that hard for exercise for me! I do give myself a break! But I do like to get up and walk on the beach! Good work out for your calves!!

  10. I will make myself fit into your suitcase. It'll be fine.

    That place is amazing!!!

  11. Where in south Florida will you be? I'm in the Palm Beach area - if you're anywhere nearby, I'd love to see you!

  12. As far as what to eat on your vacation, I would probably stick with meat/salmon/shrimp with veggies or a salad.

    And speaking of the vacation, it looks wonderful. Enjoy.

  13. Have fun on vacation! You look amazing! Love the jersey, as I am from DFW too!

  14. Looks so relaxing-Have a great time:)
