    Wondering if anyone here still tries to follow some of your diet while on vacation? Or, do you allow yourself to be completely free, ex. no logging meals/calories in MFP while on vacation?

    Just came back from vacation and tracked my calories in MFP everyday. Mentally, I struggled with knowing that I was overeating but MFP kept me conscious of what I was eating even though I ate whatever I wanted. It will have an impact on your scale—which I found I could not handle. (I should’ve brought the scale with me then I wouldn’t have been freaking out!). I guess the question is, can you handle the scale going up a few pounds?

    @Kaitie9399 - Haha, I've been wondering if I should, at least, bring my food scale (my friends will probably think I've gone overboard)?

    I, too, am scared about the lbs going up over a vacation week, but even more so, that I'll return and just not get back on track after being on a week long free-for-all.

    @msapplek Thankfully my scale was only up 1.2 pounds—but I did walk every morning and even though I ate what I wanted, I tried not to gorge myself (except the two Hershey chocolate bars and s’mores on Friday).

    @Kaitie9399 - Haha, s'mores are definitely going to be in my food diary. I should just pre-log them now! :p

    1.2lbs after a week long vacation sounds super manageable!

    Slow and steady... I need to be more consistent with my logging, I forget sometimes but I know this whole process works better when I get everything down so that's one of my new goals. Downloaded a new playlist and also going to add walking into my routine at least every other night as that helps pick up my mood and makes me feel better. I'm not sure why I stop....
