Back on the WW wagon

The week before last was CRAZY busy. We were getting ready for vacation and we had several events to attend. Most of the events included food that was not WW friendly. I was certain I would not be losing any weight that week. I did pretty well during the day, but my suppers were not good at all. Then last week we were on vacation. Had it been just us I could have stayed on plan and probably lost weight, but we were with my entire family and let me just tell you how eye-opening it was for me. I completely understand why we all have weight problems. Only one healthy meal came out of that kitchen all week. There were no healthy snacks to be found and there were baked goods and sodas available at all times. I would have had to buy and fix separate food to stay on plan and I made the decision not to do that. I understood that I would gain weight, but I felt this was the best choice to avoid the week being stressful for me. So, I did indeed gain weight and I'm gladly jumping back on the wagon today. I must tell you eating that junk made me feel awful! I didn't realize how much better I was feeling from eating well, but I understood immediately after beginning to eat the old way again. I won't go into details because some of them are gross, but I'm ready to feel better and get that weight back of, so here I go again!

Don't give up! I was on WW 3 years ago and lost 25 lbs. I got down to 107 and had to gain some weight back. I looked horrible! I got to 110 and have fluctuated between that and 115. My main problem is keeping the fat off my thighs and bottom. It's almost impossible. I know you can do it and you will. I understand about not feeling well when you're eating all the bad stuff.
