Welcome Darcie! The weekends are certainly more difficult for me as well. I try to tell myself that weight loss is a day by day decision. Try not to think about what may or may not happen on the weekends, just deal with today. When "today" happens to be the weekend, try telling yourself that today you are going to make healthier choices. Good luck in your weight loss endeavor!

Darcie, so glad to have you on the team. You can do this. I know how weekends can be harder because we usually don't have the structure to them that we do the rest of the week. Just watch portion on weekends and get out to exercise at least one day. As you get into a routine it'll get easier.
Glad to have you on the team and on the boards.

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker. - Helen Keller
Don't look at life as "you have to," view it as "you get to." It puts the fun back in things.
