Cruise Ships back in town

I hate winters.. but I absolutely LOVE the summers here when the cruise ships start showing up. Downtown comes to life and the streets are crowded with tourists. It makes me so happy. Finally we have a break in the cold and rain, so I am rarin' to get outside. I am back on track with my C25K, but I restarted week 4 since I had a couple weeks off for travel. Dock walks at lunch, and softball or fishing at night! Pretty sure it will be a piece of cake to get in my 10,000 steps.
Speaking of cake... someone at work brought in a super chocolate decadent cake, and my desk is in the middle of our office, so all the junk gets placed right by me all the time. It looks good, and I am sure it tastes good, but enough with the sweets. I don't have the best will power, and so far, my band lets me eat what I want, so it's up to me.

I have been trying to find foods that are good for me, but also that I enjoy, and I came across the Mediterranean Diet. Has anyone heard or tried it?
The food looks like something I would like to eat on a regular basis. I might just give it a try. I need to do something to get my head in the game again.

Happy Hump Day!!!

I'm back and ready to move forward

Hi blogland.
I have been MIA for a while. If you used to keep up with me, I am sorry I abandoned you, but I needed the break.
Life has been getting back to a steady pace. My house is back to normal (from the damage of the burst pipe), wedding plans are pretty much least the big stuff, and although I have been trying to keep up with weight loss efforts, it is time to get more motivation. Blogging helped with that. Thinking of this as a fresh, new start!

Starting weight: 291
Today's weight: 256

35 pounds lighter than I was. Still have a long ways to go, but even though the scale is moving at a glacial rate, my clothes are loose, and I am a true size 18. That is great! I have been jogging almost daily, I feel great, I just need to keep up on my fills and come up with an eating plan that works for me. I think that is the toughest part for me.

Are there any good resources you use for deciding on an eating plan?

By the way, how have all of you been? I'm not going to lie... as I am writing this post, I am realizing how much I've missed being online keeping up with all of you!
