Wow - I go away for two weeks and you gals go from #17 to #21!!!
Anyway, I have been in Portugal for two weeks and have eaten my head off. I came home yesterday and faced the scales this morning. I hoped I wouldn't have put on any more than half a stone (7 lbs) and I somehow managed to only put on 6 lbs!! So I am actually quite pleased with that - less would have been nice but at least it wasn't more.
And I have a history of losing vacation weight super quick. In March we went to London and I put on 4 lbs in 4 days. 3 days later I was LESS than I was before we went away. So I'm hoping this will be gone this time next week.
So . . .
I haven't read all the threads since I've been away though although I will read this one. I have several online communities I need to get back up to date with and it's taking forever.

So I went to my pizza party and I had two slices of supreme but I didn't eat the crust. It was sooooo yummy! I could have sat there and ate 2 or 3 more slices....the "other" me would have but the new me stopped at 2!!! I still was down just a tad this morning!!
Oh so close to the 50s!!!!!! Come to me!!!! I am going to try and work my butt off so I can see that 5 soon!
Yay Vik on the 35 pound mark!! I'm a pound away from reaching the 30 pound mark myself.. I can't wait to get to the 35! Awesome job!
Melissa: That's a feat to stay even during TOM. You really musta worked out like crazy yesterday. I always go up a bunch of pounds at that time.
I went to a party last night with old work friends from my last job. It was sucha great time to catch up with them and the biggest feat was that I wasn't even tempted to eat all the BBQ goodies. I brought my own stuff and I stuck to it and it wasn't even hard! I didn't even catch myself zoning out staring at the cupcakes! That's a miracle if you ask me. lol
I only had a couple of drinks ( all of which were pre calculated before going.) Planning really does make a difference in your choices!
