Today we are traveling to Gatlinburg Tennessee. It’s one of our favorite places. It’s also fairly close by. Once again we are faced with trip obstacles, or as some say, vacation obstacles. We have a number of favorite places we like to eat and they all scream to go off our diet. Even in maintenance mode, we have to watch our eating. I’ve gained 15 pounds on one vacation. I don’t want that to happen. If you normally follow a low carb diet, eating carbs will just add pounds quickly. Once again, it is about resolve and relying on God’s grace. His grace is sufficient even for traveling. We stay in a resort and have a full kitchen so we don’t have any excuses for not eating right. However, we usually find an excuse to fit, such as we are sightseeing during lunchtime so we need to eat. Though it is often true, it doesn’t have to be a setback if you choose carefully. On the other hand, if experience is true, we will probably not choose diet on occasion. That’s when we have to walk, walk, walk. We do love to walk the trails in the mountains.
