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!

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
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.

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!
