Losing weight on a cruise; not me

Packing on the pounds with the beer tube.

The last thing I wanted to do when I got off Carnival Liberty this past weekend was step on a scale, but I did, and to my dismay I gained 10 lbs. All my own fault.

Here are some tips to gain weight on a cruise:

  • Use the elevator
  • Drink a lot of beer
  • Eat lots of burgers from Guy’s Burger Joint
  • Don’t locate the gym
  • Eat and go to bed
  • Eat late and often as possible
  • Eat the midnight, Mexican, and pizza buffet after drinking
  • Pick shore excursions that requires minimal activity
  • Drink lots of 1,000 calorie frozen concoctions and shots

Now while I’m saying a lot of these tongue in cheek, I pretty much followed that blueprint to gain 10 lbs.

When I’m home I live and eat a pretty healthy and active lifestyle like  running daily, lots of salads, and not drinking.

My next sailing is coming up this weekend and I’m going to try to lose weight on this 7-night cruise. Can it be done? Stay tuned.
