I survived trip to Poland

Hi everyone.

From Friday to Sunday I went to Krakow. I had to be at the airport for 6.10am so breakfast was not a problem, a bar.

At first I was wary, but I ate the wonderful food, I drank mulled wine (not my usual amounts), I walked and I enjoyed myself without the stress I thought it would bring me.

But I was totally amazed and not prepared for what would happen when I started eating. When I dine out I always have a starter, main meal and a pudding and still have room for more. This time I only had 1/2 of the starters and could only eat 1/2 of my meal and no pudding! I was absolutely stuffed. Wow!!! It really is true, the stomach does shrink. I really had to throw away that attitude of eating everything on my plate.

This has been a truly a learning experience and this morning when I weighed myself I had put on 1 1/2lbs. I'll take it. I'm back to SS until Christmas and get weighed next week.
What a great result, and you have learned some things about yourself on the trip too!!!

The 1 and a half will be off in no time at all!

Well done you x
Oh I'm so glad it went well for you!! And you have basically eaten what you wanted from the sounds of it and had a very small gain which will probably come straight back off!!

And you learned something into the bargain....well done!! Glad you had a good time!!
Well done for being focused to get back on the diet afterwards is great. So many people have a few days being naughty and make the most of it and wonder why they have put on weight. A night out becomes a week off.
you will find that this won't affect your diet at all, as you have only produced water which will go.

Well done for getting back on the wagon.

I also think most of it had to do with what my stomach could hold. I was just satisfied with much smaller amounts, any more and it was too uncomfortable.

I'm terrible for snacking inbetween meals (or should I say was). I didn't even do that. The CD diet really does put food in prospective, food is losing its hold over me, I am gaining power.
Well done JJ, you coped with all that really well and had a good time! I think our stomachs must shrink, after my breakfast foodpack and a pint of water I am not hungry for hours. I know some of it is down to being in ketosis but think my body is being accustomed to less. Glad you are back on track !
Well done Jemax

Great attitude and straight back on it, you'll soon lose that 1½, plus you now have the knowledge that you can come off SS and not eat like a woman possessed.

Good on yer.
Hi Jemax,

I do find it very difficult when I have a change of scene to stay focused, hopefully I will learn to be as good as you.:)

Well done.
