1 Year 100 Pounds: Month 6 Weigh In

Hey everyone! We are in sunny California for a long awaited 2 week vacation. We're staying at a state RV park on the beach by El Segundo. And yes, I brought my scales with me. Ok, for the month of June, I am down 4.4 pounds. Below my needed 8.3 pounds but 
I am going to celebrate this loss. 

I am losing wait in vacation. I lost weight at Disneyland, Universal, and a 3 day car ride.  I sought out good food choices and won. Yes, I've got some catching up to do, but I feel confident that I can do it. 
The best thing that happened? I got to spend a couple if days with my baby sister! Here's a picture of us at Universal Studios. She has been a great source if support and inspiration for me. I didn't realize how much I missed her until I saw her and the boys walking down the path towards our camp site. Thanks Amber! You have a great vacation! I promise to keep up the weight loss while you're gone.

Sister M

From Amber:
I live in Northern California and she lives in Oklahoma. When I heard her family was going to be in LA for vacation, I threw my kids in the car and did the 6 hour drive down I5 to see them! It is only time will see each other this year :( I am so impressed she brought he scales on vacation! That is dedication, right? I am really, extremely proud of her for keeping this up for 6 months and keeping a positive attitude despite all the hurdles she has to overcome. My calculations put her at 45.2 lbs lost as far, which is AWESOME!

About 1 Year 100 Pounds: 1 Year 100 Pounds is written by my sister Misha who is on a journey to lose 100 lbs this year. She started Jan. 1 with a goal to lose about 8 lbs a month. Her issues with weight are very different than mine and she is 10 years older than me, but I thought my readers could really relate to her and she can definitely use the support.

  1. Hi M, YOu are doing great on your loss and have a great time on your vacation :-)

  2. Awesome! You are doing great. I'm so glad you two got to see each other; how special.

  3. Great job losing weight on vacation and at Disneyland - both great feats! Woo hoo! So glad to hear you got to see your sister, too. :)

  4. Great job, especially while on vacation. Love the picture of you both together!

  5. Way to go Sister M. Just keep plugging away & you'll accomplish your goals!


  6. Yah Sister M!!!! You can do this!

  7. Sister M, good job! My thought is ... any move in the right direction is A OK :) We have to live our lives too ... this is not a temporary "fix" it's a life long mind shift. Do the best you can while on vacation and get back to normal when you get home. We just had a 3 day weekend away (for a wedding) and, while I wasn't perfect, I made good choices and I feel good about it. I'm worth it and so are YOU! Nothing we can eat can possibly be more important than our health and happiness (even though I appreciate it's hard sometimes). Everyone enjoyed fresh farm pies (my favourite) for dessert at the wedding while I ate 3 bites (thanks Rosalie) and had a tea. It felt so good after to realize the food didn't have control over me ;) Keep up the good work!!

  8. Daughter M, YEAH! You are making such great progress. Can't believe its already July with 6 months of staying away from nasty carbs that are NOT good at all for us, and being so successful on vacation. That is soooo very difficult. Keep going strong. The end is in sight. And you are the light at the end of the journey!

  9. Congratulations on your 6 month journey. How wonderful and powerful it must feel to finally have control over your life. How many people can say the same!
