So I did it! I made it to NYC and I walked that Brooklyn Bridge!! It was gorgeous and about a mile and a half. When we crossed half way I stopped, relished in the fact that I was going to finally be doing this, then I just stood still. I looked at the skyline of Brooklyn and I thought of the millions of people who walked across that bridge on 9/11. It was sobering. Here I was celebrating, when 10 years ago people ran...afraid for their lives! How horrible they must have felt! How scared! Wow. I just took it in and was just proud of myself and humbled by he fact that I was there...Where they had been.
So our trip was amazing...I walked and walked and walked and walked! Exhausted but proud that I was able to do it! On past trips we'd ride the subway once or twice, then can it the rest of the day! I saw so many fabulous people while there! I got to see 2
Tyler friends...one who was just visiting and the other who lives in NYC and has for a while. Good to see them both! We walked so much that's though that CERTAINLY I would come back and have lost weight! CERTAINLY!!! Well, WRONG! I gained about 6 lbs! Seriously?!!? I was heartbroken...and mad! Ugh. I spent the next week I spent a lot of time drinking protein shakes as my meals...thinking that I could lose those pounds I found pretty quickly...and again...WRONG! Big sih! I've now been back for a week and a half and have finally lost the weight. Thank goodness...and today i fit into the Levi's I bought before my trip! I haven't worn Levi's since
high school! I would just stop today in the bathroom and look at that red tag on my rear!! Silly...but exciting!!! Baby steps...and all in good time!
I'll try to post another pic soon. I'm definitely back to my college weight..maybe thinner! Yippeeeee!
