10lbs in 14 days

Unfortunately that's weight going on rather than off

Had been losing weight quite well before I went away to Tenerife all inclusive for a fortnight at a quality hotel.  Had got down from 18st10 to about 17st8.

Weighed myself the morning after coming back and I'd managed to put 10lbs on lol.

Hopefully some of that will be muscle (even if just a little) as I went to the hotel gym 7 times when I was away doing reasonably intense lifting sessions.

I just looked at it as a bit of a bulk and tried to eat loads of protein per meal, but did tuck into the cakes and ice cream a bit too much as well.

Will some of this weight be quick to lose does anyone think?  Will this be some water retention as well?

I did the maths and would think putting 10lbs of fat on in 14 days was probably beyond the limits of what I managed to eat lol.

    I think this is fairly normal Pete for a lot of people who go away on hol, especially when it's all inclusive.  Naturally people tend to eat and drink a lot more and because the food is prepared for you, you have no control over what goes into it.  I'm sure a lot of it is fluid retention and also just general bloat from all that food!  It'll come off quick, don't worry about it too much.

    hey we'll have to call you 'even bigger Pete' now then fella :]

    Get your ass back to cardio'ing  and correct diet and it will be off in a month, dont sweat it.  You have used all those extra cals and done weights so I best some of that weighty is quality muscle also.

    Just focus on diet and cardio for a bit.

    We all have to enjoy ourselves from time to time.  Id imagine you had a lovely family hol or mad one with the lads.  What kind of hol would it have been for everyone else if you were dead strict with your meals and cals etc?  Its honorable you did weights each day.

    A healthy lifestyle in my opinion should not prevent this.  Its only 2 weeks a year (unless your rich)  I think you'll have come back refreshed and get stuck right back into it after a good break.

    Do not feel guilty for one second. Use your energy at the gym and get back to me in a month to tell me how you lost it all ;-}

    Cheers, I'm back on the 2500 cals diet today, must admit I am feeling a bit hungrier than normal as my stomach adjusts to lack of cake lol.

    I wasn't able to do a lot of cardio since April/May as I hurt my knee playing rugby so my weight loss was mainly just down to  diet and weights sessions.  Hoping to hit the spin bike heavily over next month or so though.

    And I'm not feeling guilty, not one bit lol.

    The best cardio I know of not using much legs has to be rounds on the heavy bag.  May be worth getting one in your garage if you suffer from leg injuries.

    Not so easy to keep it as steady state as say the X trainer or bike but still one hell of a workout.  I go for 16 x 2 min rounds with 1 min rest.  Kills me!

    I've been thinking about getting a bag for the garage.  Especially as sitting on the bike can be so tedious.  This might just be the incentive I need.

    really good workout mate.

    Mind round after round on the bag can also get tedious. Mix and match though.  Sort of do what your injury will let you then finish with rounds on the bag.
    Also get a gym timer. 

    * Then you can even play rocky music with your best hoody on as long as no one is looking :-]
