I started on this journey not only to become healthy but to better my life experiences. I am scheduled to take three trips abroad and I want the ease of movement I will have when I lose fifty pounds prior to my departure. My first trip isn't until the end of January 2019. I am going on a mission trip to South Africa to spread God's word to the children, some orphans and some with AIDS. I am so looking forward to this trip. At the top of one of my menus on the Motivation line, I put, "I am on a mission to do a mission."
My second trip may be to tour the Holy Land in Israel for the third time, leaving in March 2019. I am not sure I will make the trip again, but I have not ruled it out at this time.
My third trip is a graduation present to myself. I am going to Italy and Greece for two weeks in June 2019.
I have approximately thirty-five pounds to go, but I will continue after I lose the fifty pounds. I am so excited to see less of me. <smile>
