    I got me a genie already. It's my wife. *cheesy comment* because with her all of my dreams came true... *realistic comment* She definitely has to use some kind of magic to put up with my crap.

    Yeah at my heaviest I was about 300, I got all the way back to 190 a couple years ago. I have been hovering between 220 and 230. I feel the best with myself under 210. I was 214 when I gave up 2 weeks ago. I'm 220 again.
     
    Dieting is super hard when there is a ton of stress. Work is tough, virus screwing up everything, a line to my septic collapsed and flooded my basement (this started my diet failing, just fully fixed today)... I just wanted a break!
     
    I was just joking about the Häagen-Dazs diet, I haven't been that horrible...I'll get back on track soon.
     
    Going to pretend to cruise in my bathtub now.

    @bossdog421 I know the misery. I have now lost 2 star class sailings to Covid with probably more on the way. Let me know if you have luck with the Hail Mary. I might need one for December. 🤦🏻‍♀️

    Or you could dive into depression like us and do crazy things...like build a pool, hot tub, and cabana right in your backyard.  No cruise, no problem!  Now I just need a Genie, oh wait, that's me, I'm the home Genie lol.

    Well I tried to stay positive but Corona has taken this cruise.
     
    I am extremely disappointed because i really needed this trip. I am trying a hail mary with the travel agent to lit and shift outside of the normal dates but i doubt that will happen. Once this refund is processed I will just spend it on a vacation that isn't a cruise.
     
    Diet update: I changed from a strict low carb diet to the Haagen Dazs about 2 weeks ago and hid the scale in the basement. I have been too ashamed to post. lol

    Well i already had another cruise scheduled In Oct 2021. I am unwilling to take more time off work within 2 months of an already scheduled absence. It would just create too much work and headaches.
     
    As far as I can tell the L&S for this cruise would have to fall between Aug and Oct of 2021.  If I could move this to sometime between March - and June 2021 it would work. That is my hail mary move. If the TA can work some magic great. Pretty sure I'm just going to take the refund.

    Week 1 of my diet is complete. Down 8 pounds already! First week is the easiest and hardest part of this diet. The weight loss is going to slow down now as i reintroduce small amounts of carbs.  Time to start working out to keep up the fat burning!
     
    Is it cruise time yet???  Nope 125 days to go!

    So disappointed for you.  Why don't you think you will be able to find a qualifying L&S cruise ?

    bossdog421 got a reaction from Mikeb1892 in Coco Cay - Thrill Cabana or Beach Club (non-Cabana)   
    I would say neither would be ideal in your situation but I'd side with the beach club.
     
    The thrill park cabana's main draw is the water park tickets, but the actual water park seems a bit too extreme for how you described your kids. You also aren't going to very close to the beach here and the main kids areas are outside of the waterpark
     
    Beach club does not have a lot of offerings for the little ones in terms of activities, and the food is  more upscale (they still have offerings for kids but the food is one of those things you are paying for). It will be a quiet spot and has access to the beach, so if you really value a more peaceful spot this would be it.  My 9 year old wasn't thrilled with this area as it felt like a more geared towards adults.
     
    As for crowds, i didnt leave the beach club much on my only visit to Cococay but i have heard multiple other posters say that there are plenty of spots around the island so you wont be fighting for loungers if you decide to just do a no cost beach / kids area /pool day. I'd look into the breezy bay area, not close to the main kids play area but they have a small activities section that would have some fun stuff for kids.

    Here were a couple water falls in Walpack Township. Had to go out just before a big storm to get pics of them frozen. Can't find the pics Buttermilk falls and Silver Spray falls.I took a couple summers ago.

    Only the fall pic is from the same area I posted before. The others are from other trails around here... except the snow one. That was in my back yard.
