Day 63: No Breakfast For Raynee

November 8, 2021: No breakfast for Raynee, ever! I just can’t do it! I have to be up for at least five hours before I even want to eat or get hungry! I’ve heard it said a million times that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”, but is it? Is it really…. I googled searched the words “how important is eating breakfast for weight loss” and here is an article on the subject: https://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/features/eat-breakfast-lose-weight One of the points made in the article was that people who ate breakfast ate less at lunch and throughout the day, but,...

Day 62: Feeling Great Looking Great

November 7, 2021: I’m feeling great and looking great! I wondered about the appropriateness of this title because it sure sounds prideful! But then I remembered…. I didn’t make me, God made me so I’m just appreciating His workmanship is all! And…. Making His creation the size He meant for me to be lol Good morning! I am spiritually strong, mentally healthy and getting, more physical fit! I don’t cringe when I see pictures of myself anymore and I’ve even started taking selfies! (That’s proof that I’m feeling great and looking great right there!) I’m trusting in God to do...

November 6, 2021: Today is a day of shopping and doing laundry! Husband and I went shopping for my lean and green meals. (It’s more fun than it sounds lol.) This is what I got: And this is what I paid for it: I really enjoy shopping for my lean and green meals, especially when my shopping companion is as handsome as my husband is! Kisses in aisle four! And…. At the laundry mat: I have to mention that both of our kids absolutely hate that we go to the laundry mat every week! They don’t understand why we don’t...

Day 60: Reflections

November 5, 2021: Reflections: looking back over the past SIXTY days (can’t believe it’s been that long!) I’m seeing myself differently! Picture taken Nov. 4th I can really tell a difference in my face! And… I can now see my collarbone! My lower “pouch” (part of my tummy) isn’t as big either! What? That’s so….cool! My aerobic fitness is back, and it didn’t take me as long as I thought it would to get back! I’m in smaller sizes of shirts, jeans are still fitting though-dang my thunder thighs! lol I’m feeling so much better! More energetic, more in control...

Day 40: Deboarding Day

October 16, 2021: Today we are deboarding the Panorama πŸ™ (Yes, deboarding is a word, I googled it lol) Here’s a great picture of husband and I consoling one another: We requested the latest “debarktating” time, so we’re playing cards while we wait to be called: We “debarktatated” and had some time to spare before we check in at our airbnb so we (you guessed it) took more pictures and videos! And pictures… We had some time to kill so husband and I walked over to the grassy area. We layed in the grass and looked up at the sky....

Getting ready to board the bus that will take us to the camels! The 45 minute drive in Cabo… Driving along the coastline in Cabo! We’ve arrived and…I see camels! Your girl is ready to ride a camel! I looked adorable on the camel I rode with my momma, but you’ll have to take my word for it, because they wanted $160 for them...

Day 37: It’s A Big Optavia World

October 13, 2021: Day five of my cruise. I’m up on deck 11, having just finished my first fueling of the day… when I learn just how big Optavia world is! I cannot believe how big Optavia world is! I got a picture of Arlette and I and my Optavia empty fueling bag and here it is lol: Arlette and I talked about how different Optavia is from any and all other weight loss programs we’ve tried. It was so nice to find someone else who is facing the same temptations as I am on this floating smorgasbord monstrosity (that...

Day 58: Is Optavia a Good Weight Loss Program?

November 3, 2021: In answering the question; “Is Optavia a good weight loss program?” I feel I should explain why it took until day 58 for me to ask that question lol. I was also losing a pound a day for nearly three weeks! Hey, I just realized I’ve been on Optavia for two months and one day! How about that! Well, I guess it really is high time I asked that question huh? lol Remember in one of my earlier posts (I went back and looked, it’s on Day 2) I listed my doctor’s support of Optavia because it’s...

Day 36: Swimming With Dolphins

October 12, 2021: Today mom and I will be fulfilling a life-long dream of hers by…swimming with dolphins! But first, a word to my Optavia familia… Now… mom and I are headed into Puerto Vallarta to swim with the dolphins! To clarify; the “Bubble Tour” was not a fun name for swimming with the dolphins, it was code for unvaccinated guests and since my mom is vulnerable, even vacinated, we decided against going πŸ™ We hired a driver to take us around Puerto Vallarta to pick up soveniers! Downtown Puerto Vallarta! Intimadating soldier who checked to make sure we weren’t...
