I think vacations are the hardest time to try to lose. I have done 3 all-inclusive trips in the last 4 months and that put on a whooping 15 lbs. I was doing so well...then used those vacations as an excuse to not do ALL the things I know I should've. So here I am, working myself back. I have decided that no matter what, if there's another vacation in the future, I will find a way to stay motivated and NOT fall off the wagon.

Glad u had as great time. I went on a vacation to Florida (Key West & Miami) back in 1972 and eat for 10 days and gained 15#. Easy for me to do. I went from Chicago to California for a month and gained 20#. So u did great.

I just returned from a 7 day cruise to the Caribbean. I had planned to stick with my program the entire week, but I didn't. I ate way too much every day. (The ship had 4 soft serve ice cream machines scattered throughout). I did manage to get in two days of exercise and I took the stairs on the ship instead of the elevator, but I still gained 3.5 pounds.
It's amazing how much of a difference I noticed in my attitude about myself. Before leaving on the cruise, I hit the 22 pounds lost mark. Every time I saw myself in the mirror, I'd think "look how much thinner I am!" But during the cruise week, every time I saw myself, I thought "look how much weight I'm gaining."
Anyway, I'm back. I had a good breakfast and plan to get back to exercising every day this week. I'm disappointed in myself, but I'm not going to stop working hard just because of my bad choices last week.
