Mercy

There really is a reason for the post title... I spent the majority of my summer at the mercy of others. What I mean by that is, I had many camps and outings that I went on for church related things and though I could pack a few healthy snacks, I truly was at the mercy of what they were serving. Obviously I was able to control my portion sizes, but I had no control over what was being served. When you canoe and backpack in you can't exactly whip up a protein smoothie if there is too much fat content in the dinner (besides that, I was starving from swimming hiking etc so I wouldn't have probably cared anyway. I am not complaining - the camps etc were AWESOME and I had a great time... I knew my weight loss would still be there when summer was over;)
Anyhow, I came out pretty good - I lost a few pounds, though I did not lose as much as I had I had hoped at the beginning of summer. I had certainly hoped to be at my goal by now... oh well! I am pretty happy that I am firmly in my healthy range, and am going to start kicking the weight loss back into full gear! I am really looking forward to school starting again and having schedules and being home a bit more!

Summer has thrown me off a bit too, but that's part of life. It does feel nice to be in the healthy weight range doesn't it? Love you cuz!

P.S. I would love to make a blanket for you anytime!
