( I finished my water in the evening ) I stayed OP and was thrilled to find that I lost 5 pounds this week - normally I've been loosing 2-3.
I have to laugh because my greatest challenge when traveling has been the water, too. Our son is at college and the road to see him has VERY limited opportunities for rest stops or civilization. This, of course, does not affect the males in the family the way it does me since there is always a tree or bush....

So my trip is planned by figuring out how and where to drink my water based on where and when I will be near a bathroom!

Such useful info in this thread. I'm going to plan WAY ahead for our upcoming college tour trips we have planned. It's going to be many days of college campuses and eating on the road. I want to be prepared so that I don't stray off course. I'll also be checking out what restaurants I can go to easily. I want my daughter to have a good trip and me not stressing out about food.

Working hard to get to my tropical vacation!

Thanks for bumping Ruth Ann!!
SuPer helpful tips in here. I travel a fair amount with work & have found it a challenge this past month on IP for for sure!
I'm heading off on a one week cruise in a weeks time & need all the help I can get to plan in advance so I have the best chance of a successful IP week.

Bumping this thread for us newbies feeling intimidated/overwhelmed at the prospect of days or weeks away from the "safety" of our own kitchens

Ken's tips throughout the thread (esp the start) are a GOLD MINE! and his before/after photos alone prove that IP while traveling *can* be done. Woot! (and thanks to all the contributors to this thread--I'm out of town more often the not the next 3 months, was getting nervous, and feeling a lot more confident about it now)

Amazing, as newbie who hasn't completed a full week yet, and is heading out of town in 9 days (by plane), thank you!

Those of you who have lost so much weight, including Ken, congratulations, you did it !
