My 2 toughest days during this time were heading to and from the conference as I spent about 6 hours int eh car each way. I was so tempted to just grab fast food or other snacks to help occupy me while I was driving, but I didn't give into the temptation and made it through. One highlight of the conference was a special event where we had dinner on the USS Midway which is set up as a living history museum. While the food choices were scarce, seeing and touching the history was awesome. I also got in my most steps for the week traipsing around the decks and it didn't feel like exercise at all. Here is a peek at the flight deck:
With that over, it is now time to buckle down ans really make some progress. A plus is that within our family we have also started our own competition wherein we are each putting up cash for the next 6 months and the person who loses the highest percentage of weight gets to take home the Prize. Because of the format of weekly weigh-ins and exemptions for the weekly percentage winners, the purse will be a nice $390. I'm planning on walking away with it.
