Back from Disneyland...up 4 pounds. :( I tried to do good on my meals and snacks, but I know a lot of this weight is becuase I'm so swollen. The weather was cold and rainy! I ended up using a wheelchair for the first day because my joints were hurting so bad. Now that I'm back in warm northern California, I think (hope) the weight will go back down.
208.0 lb Lost so far: 6.0 lb.    Still to go: 0 lb.    Diet followed poorly.

Swelling and weight gain have a lot to answer for, so I'm sure that this isn't a real gain and is only temporary. It sounds like you did great with your eating plan... it's so much more difficult when you're away isn't it. I hope that you had a fabulous time though... I'd love to go somewhere like Disneyland one day! You enjoy your warmer weather and hope that the swelling subsides soon for you. :o)

Hey, no biggy! Drink a bunch of water and eat well and I'll bet that most of it is flushed away by the weekend! Swelling is not fun, I know! Hope you had a great time! Small gains from big vacations are to be expected and you can get back down in NO TIME! :)

Does having a fellow "bloat-ee" on board make it any easier? I am sure the swelling will go down (but why does it always go down so much slower than it comes on?) and you will be back on the losing track. Sorry to hear the weather was not great for your trip. I hope you managed to have fun despite it. Welcome back!

Since you said that your BACK in Cali, I'm assuming that you went to Disney World (not Disney Land in Cali) in Florida - so cool! We LOVE Mickey and Minnie in this house, my girls start screaming when they see them! I hope you had a great time, and hey, it was your vacation, its OK to take a break!!! When we go in December, I don't plan to eat well at every meal! You'll be back on track today!

Vacations will do that to you. I feel like it's almost impossible not to gain. Sounds like you tried to make good choices though, and you had fun, so just get back at what you were doing this week and you'll see it go back down. Life happens, so just get back it and you'll be just fine!

I live in Northern California, so Disneyland is about a 6 hour drive. We usually go a couple of times a year. I haven't been to Disneyworld in Florida in 7 months, but we try to go there about once a year too! I'm a total Disney fanatic!
