Okay...so this trip has been planned for over a year...my sister is getting married at Epcot, so we are all shuttling down to the happiest place on Earth. Disney is MY happy place. I worked for them for more than six years, and met my husband while working for the Mouse. Yes, I am going to Disney World...my favorite place in the world.
HOWEVER...I have never been there as heavy as I am right now. Of course, the focus of this visit is my sister's wedding...and to see friends and family that we still have in the Sunshine State (my husband was born and raised in Florida). Of course, we will also manage to cram five days in the parks durning this visit. Eight crazy days. During that time in the parks, our goal is to make it as magical as possible for Little Man...but Momma wants to have some fun too!!! According to all sorts of Disney-fan sites, Message Boards, Facebook and Twitter...you can be heavy and STILL enjoy all that Disney has to offer. There are all sorts of stories and testimonials from Disney fans, some with stats that are larger than mine, who have ridden all of the rides and squeezed into seats at shows.
That is not good enough for me.
I am doing research into next year's trip to Disney. DH wants to go somewhere other than Disney (the horror!!!)...he suggested Disneyland or the Disney Cruise. ;) Either would work...I have a cousin who lives about 45 minutes from Disneyland, and she is getting married in the next year...so if we have to fly to California, we may as well see the original. ANYWAY, my goal...whether we go back to Walt Disney World, go out to California or take a cruise...my goal is to be 100 lbs. lighter this time next year. I will still have a way to go before I hit goal (another approximate 85 lbs after that..) but I will be back where I was when I left Florida seven years ago. Heck, I may even be smaller than I was at that point...I did not own a scale back then...and I did not attend WW meetings...I just gained and gained and gained...I was pretty much in denial.
It averages out to be a little less than 2 lbs a week. I know some weeks will be better than others...and 100 lbs in a year is a pretty lofty goal...but it is something that I am going to work towards I won't be any worse off this time next year than I am today. No matter how I do, I will be a success.
Love to All.
