Florida with Pictures!

Last Wednesday Rick and I took off for for a mini-vaca to Jacksonville Florida. We had an amazing time, and spent it with amazing people. Here are a few pictures documenting our journey:
***This is the seat belt on the plane (jet blue)!! Look how much space I have :)

*** This is me in the pool on my first day there

*** This is Gail and I when we met up at movie night on the beach!! Let me tell you, she looks freakin amazing, and her accent is so adorable! She sounds like a southern belle, and I love it!

***Rick and I posing, after a day by the pool

While in Jacksonville we stayed with family, and had such a relaxing weekend. Rick's cousin underwent Gastic Sleeve surgery about a year ago and is down 130lbs, she looked phenomenal! We are about the same clothing size now and had so much fun playing dress up.

Rick's aunt is very conscious of nutrition, and cooked us amazing healthy meals. I think is my first vacation ever where I have actually lost weight.
She also had tons of different 'diet food' in the house, it was like heaven. She had these really yummy protein bars that have 15 grams of protein, 160 calories, low in sugar and high in fiber. They come in a bunch of different flavors, but she had the Cinnamon ones, and they were drool-worthy! As far as I know they are only available through mail order, but here is a link to the website. I had never seen this site before, but it looks like they have a ton of weight-loss friendly food items. They ever have protein packed puddings and jellos for the newly banded!!

I was sad to leave Florida, but am happy to be home. I hope everyone else had a fantastic weekend as well! XOXO
