maybe I should go on vacation every week
It's funny that some of my all-time best weigh-ins come just as I'm returning from vacation. I still haven't gotten back to the weight I was after my flirtation with potato pancakes in New York City, but this week at the lake, I didn't count my points and my food groups were basically alcohol, cheese, and fried. Fish and chips with beer, wine and cheese, crabcakes and more wine... I think that the reason it didn't hurt me was that we did a lot of biking and walking around. I also was not working on my dissertation, which seems to require frequent snacks for distraction and pain relief.
This week I'm going back to counting points more normally -- 22 points a day and 35 weekly allowance points. I found that I was ending up using a lot of extra points by trying to give myself a few more each day, because I didn't have a stockpile of points available by the time the weekend rolled around. Maybe if I can stick to this, I can get to goal and stop thinking about weight loss quite so much.
