I don't have a clever title but I DO have 2,000 photos! WDW in Oct. update!

I took a solo trip to WDW from November 8-14. The night before I left, I felt like I was coming down with a stomach bug. I don't know how that feeling went away by morning, but it did. John drove me to the airport & I got there before the Southwest desk was open. I was second in line & checked in quickly. The wait went by quickly & I took my seat on the plane. The seat next to me remained empty! I was pretty happy about that. We arrived in Orlando 40 minutes early- that has never happened before! Also- as soon as I arrived at Yacht Club, they told me I was being upgraded to Concierge. My room wasn't ready, so I sat in the Concierge Lounge for a while. I walked over to the International Gateway at Epcot & redeemed my Annual Pass. By the time I got back to the hotel, my room was ready.













The view wasn't great:








But it didn't matter because I was hardly ever there except to sleep. After getting settled into the room, I headed to Epcot. From the walk over to Epcot:

Thanks, girls! We got back from the Keys on the 20th- it was a great, relaxing trip. I've missed you guys! Work has been so busy that I never have time to go on the DISboards. I've hit a plateau with the weight loss & it is frustrating. I'm working out 6 days a week- usually doing the Jillian Michaels 30 Day shred & spending time on the treadmill. Hopefully something will happen soon because I'm starting to lose patience. I am grateful, though, that I've gone from a 16 to a 10 so far (is that TMI?)- my doctor let me stop taking one of my blood pressure medications because my blood pressure has gotten so much lower. Isis is doing well, thanks. She was pretty mad at me after I got back, but she got over it quickly (after spending about $50 on "gourmet" dog cookies) . I have uploaded all of my photos to Flickr- I just have to figure out how to post them into a trip report. I think I can get it all done this weekend, too. I can't wait to catch up on all of your reports & plans, too!!

It's so good to see you on the Dis again! I hate that work is keeping you too busy to chat much. I think you are doing an amazing job with your weight loss/exercise. Going from a size 16 to a 10 is FANTASTIC! and getting off one of your blood pressure medicines is even more FANTASTIC! I'm sooooo proud of you!

Thanks! I feel like I still have a long way to go, but at least I do feel better. I'm loving your TR- that story about the iron was priceless! You fugitive, you!

Hi April,
What a nice vacation you guys had! I checked out your photos, great, as always!! It looks so beautiful down there. I just saw a House Hunters episode down in key west, the houses were beautiful and so expensive! What did you think of the sunsets? I heard they are breathtaking!
Sorry about your weight loss plateau, but like Lisa said a 16 to a 10 is fantastic!

Thanks! The Keys were just awesome & the sunsets were fantastic. I got over my plateau by eating MORE. Crazy, but it worked!
