Back and weighed in after holidays

Hi All,
well I am back after my wonderful break in Liverpool, it obviously liked having me back there again as the sun shone for the entire visit. Lovely to visit old haunts and some marvellous new ones. Liverpool is a fab city and can hold it's own with any. There just isn't enough time to do it all, boys had a great time, so all in all a great holiday.
Returned today and weighed in, 11 days since last weigh in - 6lb weight loss, so very pleased. Again I would say to anyone new starting it is possible to go on holidays and not come off LT, in fact it was extremely easy as I did not have to look at places to cater for me as well as the boys, I could just let them off to eat what they wanted on holidays. They were delighted to return home and to visit Nana's today to have stew.
Wishing you all a great week, trying to catch up on all that has happened whilst away, great to be back.

Hi
Thanks all for the positivity as usual.
Great to know there is less than 50lb to go, it seems very achievable now. It was surprisingly easy to stay on LT whilst there except I didn't have the flapjacks and I believe they keep me regular, if you get my drift, so I am BADLY constipated at the moment, a combination of no flapjacks and travelling I think. Taken the medicine now but have to wait I suppose.
Ok, enough of that subject. It was a great holiday but glad to be home as well. Boys slept late this morning so that meant I did as well.
Have a good day.

Hun I was the same on Monday! I was in agony till my sis went and got me some Dulcolax - one of those babies did the trick!!!;)

I hope you have some relief soon, just don't suffer with it, it made me miserable and grumpy!:break_diet:

Well done Doirin

Fantastic to catch up on your news...aren't you doing well? You must feel fantastic.
I have been off LT for a while. I had a liver test and things were not too great in that department. I am now on a liver cleansing diet ( fantastic, I recommend it for LT'ers coming into refeed). I am still losing weight, not as rapidly as LT, but I feel marvellous. Thanks to LT I have soooo much more discipline...and definitely NO alcohol ( biggest cause of my weight gain).
Good luck on your continued jouney!! ;)

think you might have inspired me. I'm on holiday the 1st 2 weeks of september ( no idea where yet as it depends whether I get my passport back in time to go abroad). I was going to do what I did in Scotland and have 2 shakes and a low carb meal. But I might go the whole hog and stay on plan. I haven't decided.

I know doing the 1 meal thing that I can stay the same weight, but to go on holiday and come back having lost loads as you have must be a fantastic feeling. I'm wondering if I should give it a go.

Hubby will probably object as he'll be eating on his own every night, which he hates.... but he likes the lighter me.

thinks and thoughts for me for a few days .......

Hi Candle
Sorry to hear you have a problem with the old liver! Hope you are doing well though and enjoying the new diet!

Hi Lorraine,
He doesn't have to eat on his own. When we went away and I stayed on plan I always went with him. I would order sparkling water and black coffee and I'd either have a flapjack or nothing. If asked what I wanted I'd just say 'nothing thank you'. If questioned I would just say 'I have a medical condition which means this is the only way I can take my nutrition at the moment' (if I was having a flapjack) or just 'I have a medical condition' if I wasn't. The flapjack wrapper is plain enough to look like 'medicine' and I wasn't lying - obesity IS a medical condition.
Also, you won't be questioned about the condition, people are too worried about embarrassing themselves or you so they don't pursue it.

Just a thought xx
