One "other" regret is that I didn't take my laptop with me. Somehow logging on to sparkpeople keeps me accountable. Even if you don't have access to a computer just keep track of your intake. Best of luck!

I'm sorry that Starbucks made you sick - how sad! I have a conference coming up next week and I have been dreading it because of the menu (it's preset by the host). Thank you for the tips, everyone!!

Thanks for the suggestions and encouragement. The conference provided food to graze on all day and included a "healthy" lunch. I also took advantage of the hotel gym and pool. I'm not sure how "good" or "bad" I did because when I got home I bought a latte from Starbucks and got sick (make sure they clean the steam spout between drinks!!) Anyway I lost a few lbs but would NOT recommend this method to anyone emoticon

If you are chosing off a menu, often the appetizers have smaller sized portions...just stay away from deep fried foods. Chose poultry or fish when possible. Also, I usually take along granola bars and fruit and try to only have one "big" meal a day and see the rest of the day as small, snacking meals when I am traveling.

Try sharing an entee or dessert. Make a promise to your self to only eat 1/2 of what you are served. Drink lots of water. Use the hotel's exercise facilities. Have salad dressing on the side. That's all I can think of right now.

You can eat real food too. Just remember to eat in moderation and try to walk using stairs instead of elevators. Good luck!!!

I am on a spark break

I have been an RN for 23 years and have been trying to meet my goal of 145 since last August(06). I have stalled many, many times. So far I have lost 24 pounds and have just recently began losing weight again (2 pounds in the last 3 weeks).
This week I am presenting at a conference and will be eating "hotel" food for three days. Does anyone have any suggestions that will help me stay on track? I just don't think I will be able to eat only salads and water for three days while my coworker who will be with me will be eating "real" food.
Help!
