.. just do it NOW! Don´t wait for that Monday or "perfect" time after that specific party. Now is the time! Go out to the kitchen and clear out all bad foods right away and instead of sitting here right now, just put your trainers on and take a walk, no matter how short!
You´ve got to learn to eat wisely during parties and weekends anyway, so you might as well just learn right away!
You do NOT have to eat like a pencil thin model to maintain your weight loss, but you do need to choose wisely and practice portion control. Save special goodies for special ocassions and eat only ONE serving! And moderate amounts of exercise will do the trick! Thirty minutes a day is just fine!
Having SOMEONE to be accountable to during a weight loss journey may SOUND counter productive--like more stress--but studies have shown that people who enlist others' support during this weight loss time actually do BETTER than those who don't. My HUSBAND is the person who I am accountable to-
meaning--he helps me by trying to make healthy dinners,motivates me to exercise,and choose portions wisely when I don't FEEL like it!! Being accountable to someone-God,spouse,sparkteam,sparkfriend,sparkbuddy,family, etc.means SOMEONE will ASK how are YOU DOING on your WT.LOSS and the caring is there
