Came across this interesting article about loosening the reins on weekends and its correlation with long-term weight management success:
This is very encouraging for me as it describes the pattern that I've been able to work my way towards over the past several years. Although I struggled for a time to keep my weekend indulgences to a reasonable level, I believe I'm reaching a nice middle ground--one that allows me to relax and enjoy a few treats every weekend without majorly stressing me out the rest of the week. My weight trend over the course of a typical week follows the one described in the article and I think is a pattern I can live with in the long term. Perhaps knowing that I need to be mindful the rest of the week to offset my indulgences at the weekend is good for helping me keep my head in the game.
Naturally slim and healthy? I think I'm getting there!
