I over pack a little and do things like take my electric toothbrush on the road. All told, my bag weighed about 40 pounds. And I had an epiphany that I was carrying the amount I had lost since my highest weight.* How could I have carried this much weight every moment of every day? Michele had a similar experience this week, too.
I've been on vacation for the past two weeks, with trips to Idaho, Colorado, and, for the past three days, in Moses Lake, Washington for my nine year old's tournament. Tomorrow life returns to normal. And I'll be back on my FUELS plan, going after my next 40 pounds.
* I'm going to start to count from my all-time high weight, which was ten pounds higher than when I started the P.O.P. I lost ten pounds the year before the P.O.P. started, and I'm about 40 pounds below my top weight right now.
