    Default Who loses weight on vacation? This girl! Pictures Included

    Hi Everyone!
    I had a fantastic time in Malta and Rome. My friends and I laughed and talked and met great people during our travels. In Malta, we had an awesome beach day and if you are a Game of Thrones fan, we did a GoT tour, which was filmed in Malta Season 1. In Rome, I had some of the best pasta, gelato and pizza of my life. I didn't eat it all in one day! I also ate great seafood and grilled vegetables. Who goes to Rome and lose weight? This girl!!! I was down 2.6 when I went to weigh in on Saturday. I am officially 2 pounds from goal weight! Woo hoo! I am inserting some pictures of my travels.

    First up, Malta

    Next Rome and the Amalfi Coast

    We met these two ladies when they approached our table. They called up the "Fabulous Four." They invited us to come and visit them in Perth, Australia. They were two friends on their bucket list trip.

    We did an awesome all day tour of Positano and the Amalfi Coast.

    Wow, thanks for the inspiration! I’m going on a big trip at the end of October. If you can lose weight in Italy, I can lose while traveling too.

    What an amazing vacation you had!
    And city trips involve a lot of walking, but really well done!
    You look stunning!
    Rome is still on my bucket list.
    English is not my first language, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    Thank you for sharing your gorgeous photos! Now, I have another destination for my bucket list. The scenery is beautiful and it looks like you had an awesome time, that you lost weight is just icing on top.

    Congratulations on being at goal weight, you've handled that like a BOSS.

    Happy to know you had a wonderful trip!! great memories and beautiful photos!

    I also lost weight once during a five weeks across Europe with the kids in 2015. Lots of walking and a break from stress did the trick for me at the time, before the sleeve!

    Yay! The main thing is that you had a fabulous time. Losing a couple of pounds (instead of gaining) is the icing n the cake :-)

    Janny, you definitely can do it too. I came on to the site and asked for suggestions. I took my own snacks, I contacted the airline and got a low cal meal for the plane, and I carried my snacks with me while we were touring around so that I would not get famished.
