Anniversary trip summary! (Lots of pics)

So as most you probably know hubby and I celebrated our two year wedding anniversary last week! We decided to spend part of the week in sin city (las vegas) and the second half of it in a cabin that we always go to in oak creek canyon. This trip was also the inspiration and push for me to lose the weight and fit into my dress!! We had such an amazing, expensive, and fattening time. I went into the trip with full intentions to eat right and not over do it but honestly that is super hard. I feel kind of embarassed to admit it but I just didn't care what I ate while we were there don't get me wrong I didn't go crazy or anything but seriously there were very few things that you could choose that would be healthy, Now on the other had alcohol was out of control we drank so much all day everyday and I'm sure that contributed to the gain I saw on the scale when I got home.

I am someone that holds onto salt REALLY bad just looking at it makes me gain 2lbs the next day in water weight lol. No but really I do have a hard time with it so eating out is terrible when it comes to me and the scale. I never use salt at home either so that may have something to do with it. Anyway so I am an everyday weigher when I am at home and I write it on the Turbo Fire Calendar I have in the morning after my morning pee. The day we left for vegas was Monday 3/5 I weighed 165.8 that morning so when I got home that Saturday from our trip I decided to get on the scale knowing full well it wouldn't be accurate but just to see and it said... 174.2!!! Almost 10 pounds!! I almost fainted lol now I knew 9lbs in a week is super unrealistic and decided to give it a few days. This morning I saw 169.2 and I'm happy with that number of course I still have progress but I didn't do a TON of damage. It's been hard for me to get back into the swing of things but hubby's dads wedding is 6weeks from this saturday and I think I am going to buy another dress to fit into before then!!

Anyway thanks for sticking with the boring stuff now its time for pics!!!

alll in all it was an amazing trip... yes I do regret eating so much crap but I know what I have to do to get back in the right place I'm only 3.4lbs away from prevacation weight and 24.2lbs away from goal I can't wait to reach both markers!!! Thanks for looking at all the pics if you stuck around I'll post later about my plan to lose the weight I gained and to get to goal!!
