Thanks guys, I really really appreciate it. My in-laws are leaving tomorrow and I've actually gone a pound because although I haven't gone to the gym all week, I've kept my portion size way down, ate lots of vegetables, and drank tons of water. Again, I really appreciate all the support and good luck to all of you!

I have the same problem when my in-laws come to town, they love to eat out and don't consider how unhealthy a place may be if they like the food, plus they always go and buy lots of junk food. My solution to much of the problem is to plan a menu before they arive and begin cooking before they can suggest going out to eat. I also make sure that I don't have to go to the store while they are there that way the junk food temptation is lessioned for them.

Here is a link to a website that lists more than 500 restaurants and their nutritional information. That can help you with making decisions on where to eat out. If you wanted to go to Baja Fresh, for instance, just click on the link and you get links to things on their menu. It's a pretty good website.

As with some of the others,. I usually don't pay much attention. But Recently I found that as long as I don't overeat and look for the best of the worst, then it works out ok.
I would just try to eat smaller portions and watch what you eat. No need to keep up with everyone.

I do not think I am the best person to advise you n this one. When I am on vacation I usually go on a "liquid diet": Lot of alcohol and no food at all... I deal with it when I am back home....

I think it can be difficult. I keep healthy non fattening foods. Over time, I lost the desire to eat the junk that my friends and family members crave. When I go out someplace to dinner, I look for the least problematic things on the menu and where I can, I tell the server to modify it so that it is less fattening. At home, I always have ďmy foodĒ which may be different than what everyone else is eating. And just try to exercise a little willpower. Itís hard when everyone else is eating like a big pig and donít care about their waistline. Itís hard to resist, but not impossible.

Depends on the situation, a one time deal wouldn't bother me, but a week long, I have to assert my needs. Offering a choice of restaurants that we both could enjoy, adding veggies and other healthy choices to the menu at home. I also am firm on regular eating time and if on vacation people like to eat later I let them and stick to my schedule

Hey guys, I'm new to the group and have a question for the rest of you. I'm not on "vacation", but my in-laws are in town and they have TERRIBLE eating habits. YEsterday was their first day here and I ate way more than I should have. How do the rest of you deal with/handle eating while on vacation?
