So, I'm back from my trip to Missouri and I have awful news to post: I've gained 6 lbs!!
All my work and I nearly gained it all back. So frustrating, especially considering I really worked against weight gain. I walked probably close to 15 miles during that time, and stayed very close to calorie range most of the days I was there. We did three buffets, but the last one I only had one plate of chicken and rice so I wouldn't even consider that "buffet eating". But what gets me is that a 6lb gain essentially equals 21,000 EXTRA calories... or nearly 2000 extra calories per day. That's not even possible for me. Oy.
However, this is overall not a huge surprise to me. I visited my twin sister several months ago for 6 days. We ate nearly IDENTICAL (haha, being twins and all, haha) and yet I got home with a 5lb gain and she didn't gain anything. I feel its my traveling curse.
With all that said, does anyone else experience similar? I'm back on track now and hoping to see loss soon. But what a frustrating experience.
