Health gains notwithstanding, losing a tremendous amount of weight will do wonders for our self esteem and our motivation. It is important that we reward ourselves, our minds and our bodies with a "present" that will motivate us to continue the pursuit of our life-changing goals.
In April of 2003, after already losing close to 40lbs, (see "Whole Foods Changed My Life" story), I chose to reward myself with a much needed time away from cold, snowy and dark New Jersey to the tiny and incredibly beautiful islands of Antigua and Barbuda. This trip ultimately was the catalyst for my second life-changing event, my move to Miami Beach later that year.
Antigua and Barbuda is rich with history, color, charm and beauty. According to Forbes, Antigua and Barbuda, boasts 365 beaches with "Barbuda's miles of white- and pink-hued beaches have been largely left untouched--which is why this was a favorite destination of Princess Diana" (see full article on Forbes.com).
