My Long Travel Day

I went to bed at 2:30 this morning and woke myself up at 4:30! I got to the airport at 6:30 am and caught my flight at 7:30 am! 7 hours of flying is enough to make anyone crazy, but then there is that shuttle ride that takes you 2 hours to get from Vegas to St. George. But, Scotty (the driver) was really nice as was all of the local people that caught that bus home. The mountain scenery was awesome to take in along the way ... have your cameras ready to be the tourist! I stayed at the St. George Holiday Inn ... it's a place to stay but nothing great to write home about (except for Nona, the guy at the front desk who was very helpful). However, the restaurant at the Holiday Inn, "The Orchids", was really nice for that "last meal" festivity! :) I had my steak and chardonnay. Yum. It was a bit pricey, but worth it considering that I'll be on the Biggest Loser Diet for the next 4 weeks!!! :) I'll fill you in on the daily activities at Fitness Ridge Ranch tomorrow! I'm so excited to get there! The shuttle (same one) is picking Fitness Ridge people up at 11:00 to get to the resort. We can't officially check in until 3:00 but they said we could go look around. More later ....

I'm new to the blogging world, but here I go on my way to try. :) I am going to work really hard this month to start on a new path of eating right and exercising a lot in order to lose weight and begin a healthier me! I used to be a dance teacher who had an awesome body! Then, I retired and here I am ... 35 pounds overweight and not feeling good about myself! So, my goal ... to lose at least 25 pounds during the month of January (hopefully more) and be a better person! I'll update you frequently as to what I'm doing daily and you'll see a new me appear in February! This picture is what I saw after my son's wedding ... I almost cried! To see myself so out of shape was enough to get me to begin looking into Biggest Loser at Fitness Ridge!
