I just got back from my Family Gathering (SerpentStone Family)... I walked myself to death, was exhausted to the point of not being able to move more than once, put over 18,000 steps (9 miles) on my pedometer (from Friday 6pm to Sunday 2 pm)... hardly ate anything but drank gallons of water...
And my scale says I gained 4 pounds. I'll try it again in the morning, which is when I am usually carrying the least amount of water.
I overcame my spiritual obesity, now for the physical!
SAPPHIRETYGER, hey don't beat your self up. You are on vacation. What you might do is splitting yuor food with someone else in your party. That way your not eating everything on you plate. I don't know where you vacationing but order al carte or kids meals. If in vacationing in her in the States ask for a second plate and put half your food on it and set it aside. Hope that helps. Drink waster lots of water it fills you up. Good luck.
I am having trouble right now-- on vacation and although I am walking a lot, I am out of regular routine, and eating in restaraunts. And not having lost more than 1 pound in 5 weeks does not help with motivation!
