July 4th Vacation with Friends

July 4th Vacation with Friends and weight gain

I know its been a while since I've posted anything. My friends from Philadelphia flew in to visit me for the July 4th weekend so I've been super busy. Needless to say, the festivities included a lot of eating, drinking, and partying (which means lack of sleep as well).

Me and my girlfriend partying and gaining weight

Thursday morning before my friends flew in, I weighed in at 159 lbs, the lowest I've been this summer. Now that my friends were in town, I was not going workout and I was going to eat without any regard to nutrition or diet (I actually did workout the morning before they came). I knew I would gain weight but how much, I wasn't sure. 

Here's a list of the foods I ate over the course of the extended weekend: 

  • Juicy Lucy burgers w/ french fries
  • Beef brisket noodle soup
  • Chinese baked goods
  • Hawaiian cookie company cookies
  • Chicken curry noodle soup
  • Cream cheese wontons
  • Pho (Vietnamese beef noodle soup)
  • Summer rolls
  • Steam rolls
  • Various Asian desserts
  • Culvers butterburgers with culvers frozen custard
  • Pizza rolls
  • Instant pho
  • Dim sum
  • Various chinese pastries
  • More Culvers burgers and frozen custard
  • Bun Bo hue, cream cheese wontons, eggrolls
  • Chicken and potato curry w/ rice, papaya salad, chicken wings, asian sausage
  • Cheesecake
  • Roast Duck wonton noodle soup
  • More Culvers butterburgers, frozen custard, and onion rings
  • Cici's pizza buffet
  • Breyer's ice cream
So how much did I gain eating ALL this food? I ended up at 173 so I gained 14 lbs over 5 days! I had actually reached 176 but it stabilized at 173.

Normally after a cheat or refeed, I'll fast the entire day the next day which is what I did yesterday. After fasting, I am down to 167 this morning so I lost 6 of the 14 lbs I gained. 

I'm still feeling pretty fat right now, but just 8 more lbs to go to get back down to my pre-vacation weight :)
