So a quick update since I’ve received numerous emails about not blogging 😀
I’ve lost weight. I met and exceeded my goal to lose 70 pounds by February 11th. I’ve stayed true to my Dukan life-style during my 16 days so far on vacation, with the exception of a glass of wine x 2 and a bit more bacon than I should be eating… LOL
I’ve been walking with a friend nearly every morning before sunrise, which has been awesome, it’s cool, dark and quiet… About 4 miles or so.
I’ve seen just about everyone and have really enjoyed my visit home. Trip ends in a few days and I’ll be back in China and back on my tea eggs and back to daily blogging.

Early morning drive from Gainesville back to Stuart…
Early morning view after morning walk…
My niece Aja serving drinks at the Seafood Festival…
Lunch in Miami with some birthing buddies, including my niece Charity…
Friday was a PP Day.
Daily weight loss: 0.66 lb/0.3 kg
Total weight loss: 40.24 lb/18.3 kg
Today was a day off from touring. We were suppose to travel early morning to Phuket, but decided we wanted a lie in (I was up at 710!!!) and shop in Krabi, so I arranged a 400 pm pick up.
Breakfast: 2 egg omelet with onions, coffee and water.
Then a nice walk and a nice chat on Skype and an hour after breakfast, the BEST THAI MASSAGE I’ve ever had. I told her what was hurting and she fixed me. Stretching and yoga poses and 1 hour and 25 minutes later, I was a new woman! All for $11.35!!! I looked over at Cathy and asked her if we could stay an extra week!!
We then walked around Krabi, bought a few things, and then got the tat I’ve been wanting to get for a while 😀
Here’s the tattoo artist…
And here’s his adorable little girl… Who squealed with delight every time we spoke to her…
I strangely LOVE the pain from tattoos and this high was over too damn quick! He finished in about 4 short minutes 😦 I was thinking I should have asked for a bigger tat! I even whined to Cathy about it… She thinks I’m a nut 😀
Lunch on the beach, then back to hotel for private van transfer to Phuket… Sigh, our holiday is coming to an end 😦
