Well, everyone there is now "scientific" proof that the weekends are not good for diets. Ya think? How many of my fellow Sparkies have noticed that one. I wish someone paid me some money to research this phenomenon. It would be easy cash in my pockets! Weekends are most difficult time for people who are trying to lose weight and for those who are just trying to maintain after reaching their dieting goals.

I am a great example (see I told you I could have conducted the study), I don't drink enough water, i don't journal, I don't really follow my routine that has been key to my weight loss success, I cook breakfast, which means, french toast, pancakes, waffles, you get my drift. And don't get me started with the alcohol factor. Ugh!! The weekends are a nightmare. The only good thing is that I do tend to push myself a little harder when I exercise on the weekends, which leads, you guessed it, to more eating and snacking. Its a vicious cycle.

Now if they can only conduct a study that would help dieters stay clear of weekend indulgences. That would be a study worth its "weight" in gold.

I'm really focusing on getting this under control. Let me know if figure out the secret to staying on track during this time.

You are doing great....keep up the awesome job you're doing. You really inspire me.
