I am so glad you got to the doctor. Some of our bodies just can't get rid of that water when we eat a little much at times. I really try to watch what I eat on vacations but still gain also. nononono It take me a few days to get it out of my system. offwall As many on here have said we do need (deserve) to splurge once and a while. Just be careful. Welcome back, also I assume you left a "donation" in Vegas. :duh:
