I’m up 0.4 but I was down just over 1/2 a lb yesterday, so I consider it a wash. I’m planning to eat mostly well on vacation this week but don’t have any specific limitations, other than not getting too drunk, lol

Congrats losers and maintainers! Illimae, enjoy your vacation.

I missed WW weigh in Wednesday, as we did a quick trip to DC to visit with my new grandson. Wish I lived closer so I could help DD out more, but did manage to do many loads of laundry to get them caught up. Will be going down again in a couple of weeks when her DH goes back to work. But I was not a "good" girl diet wise these last few days, so back to counting points this morning, hope to at least get back to where I was by next Wednesday.

Glad you're enjoying your vacation, Illimae.

I weighed in yesterday at WW meeting. Up .2 lb. Not a surprise. I ate dinner out two nights and lunch with golfing friends on Friday. Then Mother's Day with chicken and dumplings (cooked by me) and other carbs, including a cake.

This week will be challenging, too. Dinner out last night and another planned for Wednesday night and a luncheon on Thursday. But I will be playing in a golf tournament on Wed. and Thurs. in 90 plus degree heat and going to the gym today and Saturday so the exercise will help.

It was great reinforcement to step on the scale at a doctor's office yesterday and weigh 167. Now if I can just get down to 160!!!

Fun pictures! Thanks for sharing!

All of May is challenging with Mother's Day, graduation parties, retirement parties etc. etc. I ate too much at a grad. party Saturday night (but not as much as I usually would have) and managed to be pretty good on Mother's Day. The thing I did differently than my usual is go strictly back to the diet on Monday. If I behave today, I should be good for weigh-in tomorrow.

Illimae, 1.4 was worth it - it looked like you had a blast on your vacation!

I'm up 2.4 today, to 153.6 - I am not surprised, haven't been tracking much, birthday parties, mothers day, another night out tonight for dinner and theater. Need to buckle down this week and lose the 2.4, which I am hoping I can do if I am mindful of what goes into my mouth! Probably heading back to DC next week for some more grandbaby time, as my DD's husband goes back to work. So no weigh in to keep me honest, and harder to follow the eating plan (they are big bagel fans for breakfast), but I'm thinking if I loosely follow WW with smaller portions of everything for calorie count, I should be OK. Haha, we will see!

illimae, thanks for sharing your vacation with us. I love a beach too, and that is a beautful one. Such gorgeous white sand.

My Thursday weigh-in to make it an official one week shows I am up one pound. Mothers Day I had a craving for Italian. I had every intention of ordering chicken marsala but then I saw the manicotti. Monday I ate leftover manicotti and Tuesday had chinese food. So to sum it up, too much pasta, rice and sodium and 2.2 lbs heavier and havent worked it all down yet. I physically felt horrible, too. I could have ordered the chicken and had two or three bites of my son’s. That would have been a better strategy.
