I never though I'd be so happy to see the scale stay the same! I went on a trip to visit my best friend in Colorado, which meant lots of eating out and more alcohol than I usually consume. We had cocktails and Mexican food and pasta and all sorts of delicious stuff that I let myself have. I made a pact with myself before I went that I would order what I wanted and eat half of it, and I stuck to that pretty well!

I came back sure I had gained weight, but I stepped on the scale and found that I had maintained! It was such a great feeling to know that making some smart choices had allowed me to enjoy my trip, my friend, my drinks, and not sabotage my WL efforts! I'm back OP now, and excited to see the scale start to go down again.

Phwew! Good to know it's possible! I'm looking at vacations down the road and wondering how I'm not going to gain weight. I may take up your plan, if you don't mind!

Haha, I was so proud of myself for thinking it up, as silly as that sounds. I was all resentful about having to order nothing but salads, and then one day I just went, "so...don't. Order what you want and don't finish it." It was like a lightbulb went off! It won't work in "real life", but for vacations, I'm all for it!
