I have had the most amazing experience of my life. The resort is a 5* Establishment that everyone should have the opportunity to experience. If you are on the fence about going ........... pick up the phone and call!
My last day was nice. I slept in. Packed, did my weigh in, ate breakfast, went to stretch class, bike ride, VO2 test ( I found out where my heart rate needs to be for my body to burn fat) they put a mask on your face attached to the treadmill and make you work hard enough to get to your anaerobic threshold. Lunch and then just floating in the pool. Got a hair cut and then dinner and graduation!
Day 1- August 1st 245 lbs
Day 27 - August 28th 216lbs
my goal outfit at home the day I left

It was worth leaving my wonderful husband and children and giving up a month of my life to get back my life! Thank you all for your support and cheering - it made all the difference.
Challenge: If you need to lose weight - my suggestions would be to do the following:
Make a plan to lose 10% of your body weight - you get significant health benefits from just losing that much!
Try to reduce or eliminate artificial sweeteners. They are in diet everything and no one who uses them are skinny! Eat whole foods, try to cut back processed foods and eat clean.
Get 7 - 8 hours of sleep a night
Drink tons of water!
Listen to your body - eat when you are hungry. Think of food as fuel for your body. Would you put a bunch of crappy gas in your car? Your body has to get you everywhere - take care of it, it's the only one you have.
Until you feel that you are worthy of more, you will have to settle for less
I am not settling anymore.
This is just the start of this journey and my first full day in "Life" went perfect, smorgs and all! It all comes down to choices! Choose wisely - choose LIFE!
I will continue to post weekly about how things go at home. My goal is to get to 170 lbs - but the number is really not important. Feeling good in your own skin is what's important!
Good luck on your journey - you can do it!
