Best Vacation Yet
 
We just came home from vacation yesterday. It was a down day. I kept to my eod rotations faithfully while I was gone, although I upped my DDs to 600-700 and didn't count UDs at all. We ate out every day, and on my UDs I had dessert every time! I also had barbecue and french fries, pizza, and Eggs Benedict. I took Carly's advice and when we ate out on DDs, I had a house salad and brought along my Wishbone spray dressing. It wasn't hard at all. I actually looked forward to the salads.

Well, this morning I weighed. I left at 125.2 and this morning I'm 125.4!!! This is my first week taking the carbs this far, and I can't believe I was able to maintain!

Juddd made this my best vacation ever because I just got to relax and enjoy myself.

I came to Juddd for maintenance with every intention of staying low carb, but after reading all your successes here, I decided to test the waters. I can hardly believe I can maintain this way. I absolutely LOVE it!

I've been lurking for a long time, and wanted to share this with everybody. With summer coming up, lots of us will probably be taking vacations and I want to assure you that you can absolutely enjoy your vacation and see results, too. It's great coming back with no regrets, no guilt, and my clothes still fit!

WOW CC! That is wonderful to hear! What a relief it is to be able to have vacations, special occasions, holidays. Really be able to enjoy them to the fullest, including the food, and not feel guilty and awful the whole time. Then to have the scale reward you like that. So glad you've joined us and :welcome:!

Thanks for the warm welcome. I feel like I know many of you already. There's a lot I've learned over the past few weeks. Look forward to many future discussions.
