    What is everyone's opinion on the weight gain if you have a week off or something?

    I am committed to this but also booking a holiday and already worrying that 10 days away eating and drinking will make me put on loads of pounds :confused: it almost takes the enjoyment off losing weight if I am terrified I can never eat or drink normally again!

    Everyone keeps telling me this is a stupid diet and the weight will fall back on me the minute I stop ... and I am struggling today so I am feeling a little disheartened!

    Life is all about balance. You have a holiday, you take the hit on the scales and get back on plan when you return....just make sure you do return.

    The scales always fluctuate for numerous reasons, and it's about being able to identify when a fluctuation is caused by over eating (again, allowed during maintenance) and when it's caused by water/muscle/hormones etc.

    I have 36 hours off plan the 24/25th may. I know I will be back on plan on the 26th. I'm also due to get weighed on the 27th and I know there will be a gain but im sure I will have had a fabulous time and be able to justify the gain and then focus on losing more on SS! :)

    I'm rambling now but hope that makes sense lol

    Current loss: 12lbs and 7.5inches

    Lots of people have holidays and move up to step 4 for the duration. But I've been away for a week and just made healthier choices than I usually would but drank beer. Having jumped from Cambridge to normal food and booze I put on 2lbs over the week. It's your holiday so just enjoy it!

    Hahaha I am lucky in that my friend in work is doing the "Celebrity Slim" so she is on the shakes and no food as well so we are supporting each other!

    I havent regained. In fact im still losing weight and eating away. If you've stayed on CD for any period of time you've burned fat and not just lost some water weight so the only way to put it back on is by eating A load of crap. What ive learned though from my personal choices is post diet 1400 calories a day is the max Ican have Iin order to maintain my weight. I work in an office with a sedentary enough lifestyle so 2000 isnt realistic. I wouldnt burn that in a day. That said if you're walking everywhere on hols and out dancing at night you could deffo have more. Everyone puts some weight on on holidays. Make some good choices. Have what you want with a bit of sensible portion control and you'll be grand. I personally also go for lower calorie options these days when im drinking like g&slt's.
