JUDDD Protection from Vacation Weight Gain

I'm finally home again from my three weeks in Colorado Springs! Had a relaxing time there, house-and-pet-sitting for one daughter who got to vacation in Italy, and I got to spend much of my time there with my other daughter, SIL, and dear Granddaughter! So much fun!

But a wonderful thing is that I didn't particularly worry about *JUDDDing* during those three weeks... just enjoyed all the meals that we ate out, and the trips to Dairy Queen, and TONS of fresh fruit as DD has a small parrot who eats much fruit, but you have to eat a lot too, because he can't eat that much before it spoils. So lots and lots of fruit, which I love.

And, I not only didn't gain any weight, I came back a couple of pounds lighter! LOL

I just want to make mention of how nice it is to be able to count on JUDDD protection extending over the days and even weeks you might not be following a true calorie rotation, so that you don't have to worry much about gaining tons of weight back again just from a bit of over-indulgence during your vacation time.

Glad to be back online again though. I somehow lost internet connection early on and have missed you all. Now I need to get caught up with all your news. Hi, Everyone!

Pat, it is great to 'see' you again. And such good news that you had a great time, ate what you wanted, and came back skinnier than ever!

You missed some really interesting discussions...and your voice was sorely missed during said discussions.

Well, I tried to stay aware of what I was eating and how much I was eating, but I also made a conscious effort to not have to do strong Down Days, or a particular rotation at all. Some big pasta restaurant for supper one evening... multiple pasta dishes, of which I had some of it all. And Noodles & Co. for lunch one day... my granddaughter's favorite. But some meals were very modest too. Basically, I am pretty proud of how I listened to my hunger, and if I truly wasn't all that hungry, I didn't eat much. No eating for the sake of eating because it's vacation. I didn't force feed myself just because it was vacation. But I didn't deny myself anything I wanted either! LOL

Welcome back! Sounds like a wonderful vacation.

And not eating for the sake of eating just because it's vacation? That's pretty much genius! I tend to be the direct opposite of that when I'm on vacation. Don't know why.........but it sounds like you lived. You were normal! How awesome that must have been. I aspire to that one day. Normalcy.

welcome back pat! I need to practice the "eating for the sake of eating too". I think the word vacation means...."how much food can I possibly stuff myself with!" I'll eat even if i am not hungry. Its like we are alchololics but instead are foodholics. some people say "I'll only have one drink....then over consume. some of us have the best intentions and fail for whatever reason. It will be interesting to do some research on why some people can control themselves and others not.... So glad to hear you have mastered moderate eating!
I think we tell ourselves "its a vacation" and that allows us to break all our own rules! I know sometimes I eat soo much I feel very uncomfortable and then do it again the next day....I am going to an all inclusive vacation for the first time later this year and that will be a challenge. we will have to see how I do! :") I need to tell myself its about the experience not about the food. I feel I have almost mastered daily food consumption, now I need to master vacation discipline.

I read this and replace "vacation" with "up day" and it's the same.

I love this and I think this may be key for so many of us. Thank you for modeling this behavior and teaching me how to do this. It's simple when you put it that way, but I'm not sure I would have paid attention to this if you hadn't pointed it out.

Pat, it must be a wonderful feeling to be so missed. I read so many posts during these past weeks thinking to myself "I wonder what Pat would have to say about this?" You really are the "backbone" of this entire forum and I lovingly welcome you back! I bet your family feels the same about you!! You probably have heard this before, but , to me YOU are the little smilie in the shades (like your avi!) Our "cool" So Happy Pat!!!

Pat, welcome back! It's good to see you back here and I'm so glad to hear that vacation went well and that JUDDD stood by you and gave you such a nice pleasant surprise!

LOL Yam-Yam, I definitely bought the JUDDD Vacation Protection insurance policy and I've gotten paid once already during my vacation at the beginning of the year so I'm hoping it continues to kick in during future vacations.
