Last night here in Branson, MO, we ate at a bbq restaurant. Delicious!!! Then we shared an apple dumpling with vanilla ice cream. I only had three small bites!! That sure was good!!

I brought my bathroom scale with me and it showed this morning that I'm up 2 lbs, had lost the 5 lbs I had gained before. Not bad, but it's hard finding foods that are low cal, so I'm going for small portions instead. No way to count the calories anyway. Having a fun time doing fun stuff!!

It's just a week, how much damage can be done? LOL
Enjoy your trip and your food, the calories /weight gain can be she quickly when you get home. Weight gained while travelling rarely stays with you,,,, and you'll be doing a lot of extra walking. I find I've always lost about 6 lbs on a trip regarding of how/what I eat......

Oh, believe me Suzan, I could easily gain 10 lbs in a week if I ate heavy duty foods every day!! It would take me about three weeks to lose it again too!! That would not  be good for weighing in at TOPS. If I come home weighing less than when I started, it would only be because I worked on it, not from all the walking. The 2 lbs I had gained did come back off again this morning, but I know I put it and probably more on today from the delicious dinner I had at an Italian restaurant tonight! I planned on enjoying this particular meal to the max, though, and will be doing better from now on.
