Well, back from my camping trip. We had a great time but the food WAS an issue..

Here are my biggest mistakes:.

1) Forgot to grab my lettuce on the way out the door, so my only "green" for two days was cucumbers. Well, the cucumbers turned out to be HORRIBLE and tough and bitter, so I didn't even eat 1 veggie serving the whole two days..

2) Forgot to grab our huge water cooler. Our only water was some bottles and not very many for 7 of us. There was a spigot, but it was SO far away - so it was good exercise - but I'm certain I didn't drink enough b/c I feel so puffed up today. ALSO, I realized I was probably subconsciously not drinking enough because the bathroom was about 1/4 mile (or more) away and it was such a pain to have to walk there every time I had to pee... plus walking the 3 little kids there every time THEY had to pee. LOL!.

3) I ran out of bars and so the only Medifast meals I could bring along were Cinnamon Pretzels, Honey Mustard Pretzels, Nacho Puffs and Pancakes that I premade for the mornings. LET ME TELL YOU, I like the pretzels, but knowing I HAD to eat them primarily for two days was such a drag. I really *don't* like the Nacho Puffs, but at them anyway to break up the monotony of the pretzels. SO glad I premade those pancakes for breakfast..

So, some lessons learned I guess..

I'm home and I never wanted a Medifast shake SO BADLY before in this whole 9 weeks!!! It was sooooooo good to NOT have to chew something. LOL! Also chugging the water BIG TIME today. Already had 32 ounces into me by 10am..

Oh, that's such a bummer. I bet you'll never forget your Green and water again, though! I hope you had fun regardless..

Well, you made it without cheating! That's a plus, LOL! I agree, you won't forget your green or water ever again. Hope you enjoyed the weather, you're not all that far from me and it was really nice this weekend..

I sooo know what you mean. I just got back from a 4 day camping trip myself. Holy shmoly it was hard for me to smell all the cooking food through out the campgroud. Thank goodness for those L&G's at night! It was also my first week so that was double challenging for me. But I still managed to lose! You did great girl, especially with what you had to work with. Congrats and welcome back!.

Whoops on the lettuce and water! Next time, if there is a next time, make yourself a checklist of things YOU need to survive the weekend. Then check everything off as you pack it/put it in the cooler. I totally know what you mean about having little options with Medifast food. I like pretty much everything I have but having to eat just one or two for a few days in a row would be awful. I like variety and to have choices!.

Did you still have fun tho? Did your friend come?.

You are INSPIRATIONAL! Camping with little ones.....no green except cukes.....limited Medifast meal choices.....long walks to get more water and to use the bathroom.....I think you're ready for sainthood!.

THANK YOU for this! I'm flying 2500 miles, THEN camping. If I don't pack lots of Medifast in the luggage before I go, I'm doomed, so I'll learn from you and ordered a lot of different stuff NOW! thanks for sharing & reminding me!!!!.
