Up 0.6lbs today. I am spiraling out of control. There must be some crazy water weight going on. My muscles are pretty sore.

Else my salads have gotten too big.

I am traveling to Belgium next week and then Turkey the week after. So it's out with the travel scale again!

Ian: It's tough to diet when you're traveling. I hope you do ok and, more importantly, I hope you enjoy your trip. I've been to Belgium before (Brussels) and I enjoyed it, but I've never been to Turkey.

Did I enjoy the black tie dinner? Nope. I can't stand those affairs...nothing but small talk and speeches...yawn. However, I did have to go shopping for a new dress and THAT I enjoyed, because these days clothes look not too bad on me, plus I ended up buying a size 6...hehe

I still haven't shed the water weight...perhaps tomorrow. Happy Halloween!!

Thanks Tuscany. I have dieted and traveled before, so I am pretty good. I will have to keep some tight control though. That means keeping breakfast small and using the hotel's gym a lot.

But the travel scale rules. I won't be flying blind!

Ian: enjoy your travels! And enjoy the Belgian beers for us!

Mara: I wish people in my office dressed up. We had 5 people out yesterday, and most everyone there is my mom's age.

Only had 5 pieces of candy last night, which for me is a victory!

Ian, enjoy your trip - I dieted and traveled for work (80% travel) for years. It's doable but definitely requires thinking ahead (I often packed nuts...). I've decided (after my trip last week) that next time I travel I'm buying a travel scale. As a stay at home mom nowadays I don't travel much, but it would have been really helpful last week, so it's worth the investment!

I hosted a babies Halloween party yesterday and didn't expect to be left with a gigantic pile of candy, but I was. I packed a small bag for my son and stepson to have over the next week, watched my husband mindlessly eat a ton of bad candy (we have excellent Belgian chocolate in the basement...) and finally just bagged up all the remaining candy and tied a knot around it so my husband can take it in to work. I had NOT ONE BiTE. No candy, none of the homemade cookies, nothing. Had no attraction for me whatsoever.

Sarah: Way to go with the candy!

Ian: Sorry to see you back in the 170's. I hope you get a whoosh soon. I like your idea of a travel scale and I must invest in one.

I was dealing with the power company and a power failure this morning, so I ended up forgetting to weigh myself. I'll have to wait for tomorrow... although I didn't eat any Halloween candy last night, so that's one thing I don't need to worry about.

I hope everyone has a good evening!

I hope this whoosh sticks! I'm headed out to meet a dear friend, so she can try on bridal gowns (and for me to try on bridesmaid dresses). Maybe the fact that I'll probably need to try on a size 18 or 20 will help kick my butt in gear.

Thanks Sue and Tuscany. I leave for the airport at 2.30pm. I hope I have remembered to pack everything. There is so much to remember, gym kit and fitness wise as well. A big bonus is that now I am a small rather than an XXL, I can fit more clothes in the luggage.

Down 1.8lbs today to 169lbs. That's nice. No exercise though, which sucks. I am going to eat a small lunch and then eat on the plane. Looking forward to that. But I will eat healthy (fish if they have it) and no dessert. But plenty of drink.
