save the diet for when you return from your next darkside trip.


if you go on a diet now, you'll end up having to diet again when your next trip is over.


why go through that agony twice??


well, that's what i plan to do.

Mine isn't so much a diet-diet, but a lifestyle change and a much needed one. I have started the Paleo diet and coupled it with WW points system to help keep my portions in check. I sincerely had so much weight to lose that it was a change I needed to get serious about and jump in to. I'm also doing some beginner's yoga to help with my back problems and migraines. Thankfully my diet is something that's easily done where ever I go

I was blabbering on

I'm not slim.... YET! But I am thinner than I was. I'm chubby and for a short person I don't need to be, plus it's not helping my back *sigh* Honestly, I think my goal I've set for myself is very reasonable and while it's not as skinny as I once was, it's a much healthier size for me and I will be perfectly satisfied with that.

I just want to say hi and thank you to Macraven, MetroWest, and Damo and others. I read all the stickies and comments here and we went to Uni over spring break, stayed at RPR, and all of the advice here was soooo helpful!

Hi Carole & Raven

I'm here....just mostly lurking as I can only post from my phone since my router stopped working and it takes me forever to type anything on this thing as it decides to randomly add letters and smilies that I didn't type.

Other than that everything is going great

that is so sweet of you to share with us!


Yoo Hoo.........we have another homie to welcome here...



to MinnieFanatic..........
our newest friend !!


i have stayed at all 3 hotels but RPH has my heart.
i call it my home away from home.


anytime you need help or have a question, come on over here and we will try to help you out.
sometimes when a person makes a new thread about a need they have, it doesn't get a lot of hits on it.

we are a chatty bunch here and sure someone will try to help you.


Minnie Mee, what did you think about the parks during spring break?
i tried it once and the crowds just about swallowed me up..........

ride/shows were not a problem but trying to get to the restrooms was really time consuming.

Good advice however some of us need to lose a few pounds before we head down

Same here ... both hubby and I have committed to eating healthier. Hubby needs to lose a fair bit more than I do, but as you said, it's a lifestyle change. I've heard good things about the Paleo diet - just too much work for me. We're both doing the Shakeology thing through Beachbody and we're both trying the Insanity Workout (yes it really is as insane as they say!!)

The biggest thing for me is remembering to buy my kids bread Thankfully they love the cloud bread recipe and it's quick to make.

That would be awesome

I'm considering a solo trip at the end of Sept so I can meet up with both you and Carole if my finances will allow it...I know we would have a blast.

and Carole....don't feel bad, I gained back almost 20 lbs too...had to go back on my diet this week.
