My DH and I went on our annual 2-week vacation, camping in our beautiful Pacific Northwest (google "Hoh Rainforest" which is my favorite place in the whole wide world). I made a point of sticking to rotation for the first 8 days, but then we went on a hike from Lake Ozette across to the Pacific Ocean at Cape Alava (which was on a DD), so I knew I needed to eat something. I shared DH's PB&J sandwich, a handful of trail mix and water... but that started a binge after we got back to our camp site, so I just named it another UD, had another UD the day after, then we came home. I got back on plan, stuck to it yesterday (first day back at work) and today showed a 5 pound loss on the scale!! I would say my vacation was a success in more ways than one! :jumpjoy:

WOW! Congrats on a successful JUDDD vaca! I have not attempted a vacation since I began JUDDD in May. It is good to hear that it is possible to stick to rotations - gives me encouragement.

That's AWESOME! I would love to actually come back from a vacation weighing less than when I left! You rock!

That's awesome! Congrats! Your story just shows the power of how JUDDD really does work as a long term weight management strategy AND also how forgiving it is when you jump right back in. Enjoy!

Thanks, all! Yep, it is doable. Maybe a camping vacation is a better JUDDD option than going to motels and restaurants. Not as many options!! Luckily, communing with nature (and getting away from society as a whole) is our vacation of choice!

Sounds wonderful!!! I'm glad you had such a great time AND had a surprise bonus on your return!
