Update From Europe

I have been on the road for 2 weeks now.  I have trekked and trained across Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria and Slovenia. Tomorrow I start making my way back to Frankfurt, Germany with a few nights in Munich.

I will do a full review, complete with pictures when I return but for now all I have is a quick update.

My diet has been filled with Meat and potatoes and pastries.  In larger cities where accommodation swallows most of the daily budget, the only affordable meals are vendors with such local delicacies as burek, donairs, kebaps, pizza and sausages.  The other main meal is beer.
With lack of nutrition combined with the pure indulgence of gelato when ever possible, I was sure I must have gained back all of the weight I worked so hard to lose over 3 months. There was this constant obsession and almost paranoia cramping the enjoyment of my trip because there was nowhere to weigh myself. I could only look at myself in the mirror and what I saw was scaring me.

Finally, in the last city I stayed at an old house that must have belonged to someone who recently passed away. Everything and old person would have was kept exactly the same way.  The first thing I did was look for a scale.

186.5lbs. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT. I didn’t gain more than a bit of water retention which I can handle for now.

I was so happy to see that I lost weight despite the horrible diet and could let the obsession go (at least for the last week of my trip).

Cant wait to get back to routine and jogging and super awesome salads for lunch. but, for 1 more week I get to eat gelato and drink beer and indulge.

Happy weight losing everyone.

See you in a week.

    Toni, that is awesome! We were in Germany last year visiting my in-laws, and after three weeks of eating schnitzel, potatoes, cake and ice cream daily I’m pretty sure I was up about 10 lbs!
