Vacation plan worked!

Saturday, June 29, 2013

Good Morning! It's a gorgeous day here in Montana! If any of you read my blog entry a week ago, I had just returned from vacation and although I tried to be reasonable, I knew I had not stayed totally on track and was afraid to step on the scale and see proof. If I saw a weight gain I could be discouraged and just decide to forget the whole thing! I decided at that time to give myself a week before getting on the scale, to stay on track, and give an honest assessment of any damage my week's vacation may have done. So - today was the day, and I am happy to say I was actually down 1 lb. Now I know that I can allow myself the vacation times, as long as I stay reasonable about it, and not derail my long term goals to a healthier weight. This is totally doable for me. I won't need to stress and worry next time I know a trip is coming up - I can handle it and go on! Hooray! emoticon

    Seems to me that you have hit on a good plan. Traveling stresses the body in many ways and one of the results is that a person tends to retain water, so if you hop on the scale when you get home, it usually doesn't give you a good number. I think that waiting a week is very smart. I may have to try it myself the next time I travel.

    Well done. That was a wise move. I'll remember that.
