The Free and the Brave





Alright, all you other brave ones who have posted your "works-in-progress" photos. Here's mine, taken today at The Beach Club Resort in Gulf Shores, Ala.

As you recall, this vacation represents several "firsts":

* The first vacation I've taken in over seven years when I have finished all my writing assignments ahead of time so that I have
NO WORK to do while I'm on vacation!

* The first time I've put on a bathing suit in public in over 10 years.

Although I'm still 13 pounds from goal weight, I have thoroughly enjoyed doing what I love again...being suited up on the beach!

More to come...

I went swimming today and felt Great in my black swimsuit (size 8!)

You look WONDERFUL and didn't you know: it's a sin to work on holiday, especially on a beach! :) I think it's the 11th Commandment

Enjoy the rest of your relaxation--you've earned it.

Rebecca, you look va va vooom!
What freedom! 10 years is a very long time to not thoroughly enjoy yourself at the beach.
The water looks so refreshing.
Enjoy!

WOW..you look GREAT. You must be enjoying that vacation so much--with NO WORK AND NO MORE 50 EXTRA lbs. WOW. I am so impressed. You put your mind to it and you did it. I should put a picture up of you in my kitchen to remind me that you started when I did and LOOK what YOU ACCOMPLISHED. I know comparing is dangerous and unhealthy..but maybe it's the kick in the butt /head that I need. Thank you for your thoughtful, personal and caring words that you left in my comments. It really was great advice and I appreciate it so much. You look amazing and deserve to enjoy every bit of the success you have worked so hard at/for. {{{hugs}}}
