The Post Vacation Blues?

Many a person seeking weight loss has had to dread the scales after vacation.  Can anyone say they have gone on vacation and lost weight?

Well Joe and Flo can!!!

We both lost.

Joe down .2 pounds

Flo down .9 pounds.

I lost 3.7 pounds this week.  I am down 21.6 pounds in six weeks.  A little more than 3.5 pounds per week.  Flo is down 12 pounds in 6 weeks.

So what is the secret?  No secret.  We just stayed on our plan.

As I have said many times this eating plan is so flexible.  Most days we had two shakes. Some we had 2 meals and 1 shake, other days we had two meals and two shakes.  We ate at a buffet twice,  Cracker Barrel twice, and had sushi twice.

We did limit our intake and tried to make good choices. We splurged a little here and there.  We did get to exercise by walking several days.

It was also a very spiritually uplifting trip.  It was great to be out and have some time alone with my wife.  It is good to be home and to not dread the scale.  We are only a few days away from the mid point of our 90 day journey. I am hoping to hit 25 pounds by that time.  Sometimes after a vacation you lose weight rapidly because your body adjusts back to a more consistent schedule and you miss all the sodium in restaurant food.
