Disney World Bound – What to bring?

So, both my wife and I have been successful in losing weight and due to our CONTRACT we’re going to Disney World for 5 days. Luckily for me, this has no real drawback aside from spending a bit of money to go to a place I enjoy going to anyway. So we’re off to the Magic Kingdom for 5 days to stay at the Wilderness Lodge with a Disney Dining Plan. Our room comes equipped with a mini-fridge so we’re trying to get a list of good paleo snacks and treats to bring with us (or ship to us), so please have at it with the suggestions.

So far we’ve got this on our list:

So we’re looking for more suggestions so we can try to snack healthy. My wife has already booked all our meals at healthy places that can accommodate us.

We appreciate any insight people have on this. Thanks!

100lbs later.

Well, it’s that time again. Major milestone in weight for me. 225lbs. I obtained this weight a few weeks ago, but figured I’d wait to see if I could maintain it through the holidays. Well, I can safely say that I’ve kept it off for about 2 weeks now and I’m 224lbs (101kg, 16st).

That’s a loss of 76lbs in 6 months and 101lbs since my heaviest weight ever.

I decided to go try on some new pants. I grabbed some 40x32s and some 38x32s. I figured I’d start with the 38s and move up to the 40s. The 38s went on without any issue. Then I gave them a space check… lots of room. Hmm, there’s no way I could be down to a 36. 36×32 is like, 8th grade pant size for me. Sure enough, I walked out of Old Navy with a pair of 36x32s (which actually aren’t even that snug) and an XL shirt (which is a BIT roomy, but lets me move around comfortably). I’m still flabberghasted. I ran into a high school friend and he even remarked that it looks like I’ve lost a lot of weight.

I saw the doctor last week and when he saw my weight on his scale (226 with clothes on) he asked how much more I planned on losing. I told him I’ve easily got another 10-20lbs of loose skin and fat that could probably come off. He said I should shoot for 215… not 205. I guess we’ll see.

Better start a monthly clothing budget. Most of my pants are still 42s… and VERY loose.

This is down from a 48×30!

Ok on to the photos. Clothed first, semi-naked after and a very special 4 shot composite at the very end!
