Vegas Bound

Saturday, March 10, 2012

Weighed in today. Lost 3.5 more pounds. That's 33.5 all together. We're leaving for Vegas in the morning. I'm excited for the vacation but I'm terrified of destroying all my good work. I don't want to diet on vacation. But I'm hoping I can manage to watch what I eat a little bit at least. Last summer when I started dieting, I lost 22 pounds and then went on vacation. I only gained a pound back that week but for some reason never got back on track. I'm scared of doing that again. I don't think I will. But I really don't want to gain like 5 pounds back and have to re-lose it again. That's the most frustrating thing! Mostly I don't want to spend my vacation feeling guilty every time I splurge. I is vacation! It's supposed to be fun. For me eating is fun. Obviously. You don't get over 300 pounds if you don't enjoy eating! Anyway, I'm going to do my best to balance both enjoying my vacation and not completely over indulging. Wish me luck!

    Think of how good you feel about what you have accomplished! And, how lousy you felt gaining weight back after your last vacation. Fun does not necessarily equal food and splurges. There are so many ways to have fun that do not mean heavy foods or super high calorie and carb cocktails. You can allot some calories every day for a splurge, or share something decadent with a friend. Ask yourself if it will be "worth it" in the end. Look up the calories on things you might splurge on and have that number in the back of your mind. I decided I would not splurge on any food I could get back home whenever I travel. When we went on a cruise a few years ago, I was TERRIFIED- all those buffets etc. I ended up actually LOSING a pound. We walked and swam, and at the dinners they served wonderful chilled fruit soups for starters...I chose those every day instead of the bread basket or pasta. They were delicious and I did not feel deprived. Good luck- stick to your plans...don't make it a "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" as far as calories go...cuz, it will be coming back with you in the form of numbers on the scale you might not like. Have fun, stay focused and strong. You can do it!
