After 3 weeks of vacation, I didn't gain any weight!

Not only that, but I was down 1.6 lbs!

I spent the past 3 weeks on vacation in Borneo, eating noodles for every meal (yup, even breakfast). I saw a photo of myself and thought I had really let myself go and was going to have to start all over again when I got back. My plane got in after midnight and the next morning I braved the scales to see the damage - down 1.6lbs from my last weigh in three weeks before! I guess all the walking around with a 25lbs backpack, sweating through the jungle heat was enough to combat all the fatty foods I had been eating.

Great! Back to work!! Back to tracking calories!

    Sweetness! Did you eat the local food? If so, even if it was high in fat, it was probably a nice clean diet and good portion sizes too. :flowerforyou:

    I'm impressed!
  • VERY impressed! I leave for a 3 week vacation tomorrow... almost feeling kinda lost without the whole counting-calories thing, but I'll try to rely on portion control, and hopefully get some exercise while I'm gone! (:
