So I am somewhat disappointed after my weigh-in this morning. I was steadily losing all week last week up until Friday. I decided not to weigh myself Saturday and Sunday and decided to splurge a little... well I guess I splurged one too many because I gained back 3 lbs! :(
I seem to have this problem on the weekends. It happens whether I'm really busy or just relaxing at home, but I think it's an excuse to kind of "let go" and have comfort food or like...idk my brain thinks I have a free pass like I won't gain weight because it's the weekend or something (which obviously I know isn't true, it just "feels" that way).
I think part of it has to do with the fact that when I was in college, there was this pattern of partying, late night meals, and having hangover food the next day. So maybe I'm in the habit of having a bunch of comfort food? I'm not doing as muchof the "partying" so I'm at a loss.
Does anyone have any good advice for how they let themsleves splurge / have a treat on the weekends without going overboard and still lose weight?
Happy that I have a positive attitude... this is why I gave myself enough time to lose this weight so that I don't abandon it. I knew it wasn't going to be perfect, so I'm going to work out the kinks.
