Weekend Flop

Monday, September 23, 2013

I have found my weakness. It's called the weekend. For some reason, i do great Monday-Friday. Then even if I have the best intentions, I manage to totally undo all of it between Saturday morning and Sunday Night. Sometimes the party starts right after work on Friday.

I need some weekend support. I've considered finding a Saturday Weight Watchers meeting or something. I don't know which direction to go.

Anyone have any great weekend tips?

    Me too! The weekends are hardest - I guess because I don't have a "routine' like I do Monday - Friday, spending most of the day at work. I never have trouble drinking 8 glasses of water while i'm sitting in front of my computer for work all day, but the weekend comes, I only get in 5 or 6. I had thought it would be easier to get in some exercise, so I could be less strict on food, but the weekend always seems jam packed with things to do that I don't fit exercise in. I guess we both need to figure out our weekend routines - but don't be discouraged even if you "mess up" over the weekend; just get back on track the next meal or next day.

    Weekend can be trouble if you let them. Have a small treat for the weekend but don't overdo every meal. There are lots of healthy options if you are ready to commit to them. emoticon

    I know what you mean about support. I'm super good on Mondays and at the beginning of the week. Then towards Friday and the weekend it all vanishes. I thought about looking for a Weight Watchers support group but it doesn't fit into my schedule or an Overeaters Anon Group too.

    Then I discovered SparkPeople members blogs! They are so terrific. It's like a support group. I've been reading other people's blogs and it makes me feel less alone in this struggle. I've been commenting on them too. It's nice to get comments from people. It's great!

    Don't get discouraged. I'm trying not to be. If it wasn't for my husband or for Spark People and Accountability Group I think I would be depressed at this point for having gained weight. I'm trying to be positive.
