Good luck with that....LOL.
I always seem to eat more when camping and relaxing. But that's just me, maybe you have more ability to resist all the good food flavor's cooked on the open fire. I worry about loosing when I'm back home.....sometimes...

Oh absolutely I lose weight when out with the coach.

Up/down, move around, set up the ex-pens, hook-ups, in/out, just a lot more exercise for me even sitting in the outdoors.

I love it, it gets me so motivated and much more physical activity. Even working on the coach on weekends gets me out of the house even if I don't go anywhere.

But that's because the work week for me I'm sitting on my fat duff in my fat chair at my fat desk, driving back and forth to the fat office in my fat car.

And sometimes I'll go through the fat drive through to get a fat cheeseburger on the way home!

Not necessarily. We really work at keeping fit and trim. Diet and exercise is the key of course, but it seems to me that there are so many opptunistic moments with happy hour beer, margaritas, snacks being presented very often.

We carry a digital scale and we both weigh every morning and one pound up means fewer calories and more exercise that day.

Another notch in the belt spells trouble for me.

I have maintained a 32" waist and 42" chest for more than 50 years and maintain a BMI of 22 and my wife keeps at a BMI below 23.

Weight loss/ maintenance is a constant sttuggle for us but we do it. NO FASTFOOD

My experience is that it is no different than being at home. I can choose to sit around, watch TV, and eat constantly or choose to be active and eat wisely.

I used to chuckle at the RV's with bicycles, boat, etc... attached. Now I are one!

If your weight gets loose, you could be in trouble if you lose it.
