Greetings from Israel, where it is freezing cold and I don’t have anything warm with me! 🙂 We’ve stayed in multiple places since we arrived and I’m thrilled to tell you that the cabin we’re staying in currently has a scale. I’m not sure how accurate it is, but it has me in the 220s, so I’m going to take it.
This trip has been absolutely amazing so far. The flight to get here was ridiculously long, but all the kids were troopers. Fred and I flew from Phoenix to Newark with the twins and we met Amina and Khrystyna in Newark. We all flew from there to Tel Aviv.
When we got to Tel Aviv, our friend Laurie (along with our tour guide Sonia and our bus driver Boaz) picked us up at the airport and we went to Joffa for a few hours while we waited for the rest of the family to arrive. The picture above is the kiddos in Joffa. After Joffa, we headed back to the airport to pick up the rest of the family, met up with some friends in Israel, and then had a late dinner at our hotel.
Our trip has been really fun so far, but we haven’t done a ton of walking. I’ve heard that as the trip progresses, there will be days that we walk a lot of miles. I’m hoping that’s the case as that could really help me shed some pounds. Here’s a random photo of me riding a donkey yesterday!
Ok…so I’m sure you didn’t come just to see photos of me in Israel (although maybe you did). This week’s weight loss brought me down into the 220s. I lost 2.1 pounds to weigh in at 228.8!
Last Week’s Weight: 230.9
Today’s Weight: 228.8
Weight Lost This Week: 2.1
Total Weight Loss: 38.9
Also, I got a new Stitch Fix box right before I left. It’s so fun to get new stuff. Here’s one of the outfits from the box. It’s totally wrinkled but quite cute. It’s a pair of boyfriend jeans, a crepey blouse, and a fabulous pair of druzy earrings! I didn’t have time to get any really great pictures, so there won’t be a post on this particular Stitch Fix box. Sorry…I know how much you all like chiming in on what I should keep and what should go back!
That’s it for this week! Hopefully I’ll be able to post again next Wednesday!
