Weekend Disasters

For the second week in a row, I have sabatoged my week of hard honest effort in one day on the weekend. I don't really understand how ONE meal can zero out all of my hard work for the previous two weeks! ARGH!!!!!!! It is so frustrating to be losing the same 3 pounds over and over and over.

The insanity has to stop. This weekend I will NOT allow one moment of starvation to ruin the last 120 hours worth of planning, measuring and counting. I need a plan. I feel like the routine I have during the week has become so much of a routine that I'm rebelling against it on Saturday and Sunday. Perhaps I'll search out a special menu to cook for dinner on Saturday and that will spice things up without making me dread getting on the scales the next day.

All I know is that at this rate, I will never see the 160s.


I feel like I should end this dreaded post on a positive note. Eating more often during the day has definitely helped me maintain control until dinner. I have also bumped up my dinner time to around 6:30 instead of 7:00. Since I usually spend my time after dinner walking or consumed with what I'ved tivo'd from the night before, I find that I don't get hungry again before bedtime.

I am also hitting the office gym again this week starting today for some strength training. I will need a miracle to have a loss this week...

I guess that's what flex points are for right? Do you use your flex points? I always save mine up for the weekend and then have a plsurge and get someting great like a Mars Bar and some baked Nachos or something like that.

I know what you mean about the weekends though. Last week I must have consumed at least 100 flex points on top of my regular points! And the scale certainly showed it on Monday morning

We all have problems with weekends. I guess something about not working makes us give in elsewhere. Just try a day at a time. Anytime you're going to eat something, ask yourself if you would do that on a Tuesday.

Weekends are always tough but if you could maybe keep it to one day or even one meal that would definitely help out. I hope your WI goes well!
