    I know what you are going through- we just got back from a week in Turkey (not a honeymoon but for our official engagement) and I am really feeling it. The food is soooo good there and we were with FI’s family who encourage you to eat and it’s hard to say no. For example, one night we had a sensible dinner at home… then we went out for stuffed mussels, kebabs, and glasses of pickle juice (no joke)… then we went to get ice cream (this stuff is so rich and thick you eat it with a knife and fork). 

    Not to mention I have been “off routine” with exercise for the last 3 weeks because we just moved out of state… I can hardly bend over to touch my toes anymore. 

    Any inspiration to get back on track is appreciated!!

    @MsBlackberry:  Give yourself a couple of days! This will happen to me when i come back from visiting family. I will be about 145, and I am normally 140/142. After a couple of days everything goes back to normal. Your body was probably not used to your diet on your honeymoon, but once you get back into the swing of things you should be good! Im sure you still look beautiful!

    @MsBlackberry:  I’m sure at least half of that is water weight.  Don’t stress!  Eat well for a couple days and I’m sure it’ll drop back off.

    I gained about 5lbs…granted I lost a few lbs the week before the wedding because I was too busy/nervous/whatever to have much of an appetite, so it made me go back to my pre wedding-week weight…but I def had a six pack going into the week and a mushy stomach coming out of it, haha
