Sigh...Not that many pounds will get you into a different size pant, but now they all go to the waistline.
Last year we were gone for less than a month, staying in a small apt., helping out relatives. Somehow I lost 5 when I shouldn't have, as we were eating dinner out much more often. That little bit sure felt different in fit, but don't remember any changes I did.

Oatmeal for breakfast, tuna/turkey for lunch, 3-course balanced dinners, yogurt, string cheese snacks....no soda, no chips. H. eats huge but the seconds don't tempt me.
Doe eating MORE really work for anyone?
Where/how did your last 5 go??

I had a baby in October, and within 2 weeks was 10 lbs less then what I was when I got pregnant. 5 months later, I've gained 13 lbs back. My first child at 24 I did the same thing and went from a RTW 8 to a 10 and stayed there for years. At 37 in a few days, I'm a 12 now.

You pointed out that you were helping out, and I assume (I know, I know) that you were more active even though you ate out. Even if it was just on your feet more often. I know this was the case with my daughter, since we spent 2 weeks out of the house, under stress. I ate out, since that was the only choice, and lost weight like it was nothing.

Take a look at the difference between what you were doing there and how you arfe at home. I've found if I keep up the simple activity I was doing (in my case, I smoke and the walk from the hospital room to the smoking area a few times a day wound up being about a walk from my house to the road) and mimic it to keep it off.

when I was young I was too skinny and hated it. No Butt no his jeans looked terrible on me. Now however, age came and whatever butt I had now resides on my Front side so how did that happen.
Anyway, I now weigh as much as I did when I was 9 months pregnant. Bummer. Just bought an eliptical machine and set it up in the living room. it just stays there to let me know I must get on it. So we will see if the butt goes back to its original position or just disappears altogether. Whatever, I try as long as my DH still loves me thats all that really matters

Cut out the white sugar, white flour, all grains, and white potatoes (yams/sweet potatoes are fine). Eat meat, fish, poultry, eggs, some dairy, seafood, tons of fresh veggies and fresh fruit. Eat organic when possible. I started eating this way in January and have lost 25 lb. so far without being hungry! I do eat fruit, especially apples and berries, and nuts. Easy, and you'll have so much more energy. I plan to eat this way for the rest of my life. I do indulge a bit on special occasions (I had a cupcake on DGS's first birthday) and when eating at friends. Check out Mark's Daily Apple Primal is the way to go!

Good luck!
