  1. This is a first!

    I just got back from a 3 week vacation and I lost 5.5 lbs. I don't think I have ever lost weight while on vacation.

    I eat more carbs than I usually do, I was less active than I usually am, and I didn't track what I eat, just made sure I got enough protein.

    Today it's back to business, tracking and eating clean. Sunday it was 5 months since I started my 2 week pre-op diet, and I'm down over 78 lbs. A few years ago it took me a whole year of diet and working out 6 days a week to drop 67 lbs. Insane.

      FWIW, this has happened to me too, both times I went on vacation (well, business trips to be honest) since my surgery - one was a 10-day trip to Germany, the other a 2-day weekend in another city. Both times I dropped weight even though my food intake was not as stellar as it should have been. Which makes me think that maybe the body likes change - change of food, change of exercise, etc. and responds more eagerly as a result. Just a thought.
