I'm another one who uses Monday morning as "weigh-in" day. It really does help keep me focused during the weekend and evaluate my choices because I don't have time to make up for poor decisions before Monday!
Almost every weekend since I've started is going to be a huge challenge though, and next weekend is certainly no different... but I've managed to succeed every week with an average weight loss of 2 pounds a week for the last month (8 pounds down, 14 to go!). I am educating myself about better choices and practicing portion control, and that's really all you can do!
And if you think about it, you HAVE to ... or you'll never change. You'll most likely gain weight slowly but surely, develop health issues (heart problems, diabetes, whatever runs in your family), and probably die earlier than you "should." Saying no to the beer or having 2 slices of pizza instead of 4 is a small price to pay.
