Five for Friday

1.) I was in Orlando this week… for one night for work. I got VIP treatment all the way.

But I am so ready to stop traveling for a bit!

2.) Speaking of not traveling, I am going to Peru on June 21! When I first booked the trip, it felt SO far away, but now it’s just over a month away! Within the last few weeks, Stacy (my travel buddy) and I have booked everything we need to – including our internal flights in Peru, a 6 night/7 day Amazon Jungle Tour (!!!), and all our accommodations outside of the tour (hostels in Lima and Cusco and an apartment in Cusco for 5 days after the jungle tour). It feels so good to have all those details taken care of!

3.) I had my third (and final!) consult with a plastic surgeon last Thursday, and I cannot believe what a hard decision it is to pick a surgeon! I’ve been going so back and forth between the first and third, but think I am getting very close to making a decision. It feels so adult – I almost wish I could call my mom and make her choose for me. That said, hopefully I will finalize everything in the next week or so and set a surgery date. I’ll be posting about my consults and background research into tummy tucks in the next week, so stay tuned!

4.) I haven’t been counting WW Points for a few weeks now. I’ve actually been maintaining my weight and losing a little (still am a daily weigher), which makes me feel like I am getting closer to being able to eat intuitively. I do still want to lose a few more pounds before said surgery, so I know I need to get back to counting sooner rather than later, but for right now I’m enjoying the break.

5.) This is the first weekend in I can’t remember how long where I have no set in stone plans, and I could not be more excited.

    Jealous of it all – but maybe the Peru trip most.

    I’m very glad you are sharing your surgery experience with us. Skin removal is one of the top things I want to do and hopefully will follow through on next year. Best wishes!

      I am so excited about Peru – it’s my first time abroad since I was a kid!! 🙂 And I’m glad you are looking forward to me sharing the process. I’ve found a lot of information online, but there’s not THAT many complete, first hand accounts, so I’m excited to add to the list. I’m planning to publish some of the best resources that I’ve found along the way next week, so if you have any you’ve liked a lot, let me know!

      Glad to share! I am a little nervous about being so “out there” with everything, but I feel like it needs to be talked about more so I am happy to be able to.
