Weekend dieters dillemma

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

So during the week I do very well with dieting and exercise, Its actually quite east for me. THen all of a ssudden Friday comes and everything goes outt the window. I eat any and everything and dont workout. THe weekend seems to come and goo soo fast with soo many different things to do and before i know it its monday morning and ive gained 2 or 3 pounds. :(

Has anyone else had this problem?? Its realy setting me back with my weight loss. Im a college student so the weekend is time for all of us to go crazy lol Dieting is not on my mind at alllllll .

Be blessed ,

    You are definitely not alone here. Weekends use to do me in. Three changes in thought helped me a lot. First I stopped thinking about my goal as though it was a short-term event...I want this to last a lifetime. Next I stopped thinking that I was "cheating" when I ate certain foods; a lifestyle change is not about deprivation, but teaching myself moderation and balancing out the weeks in a healthy manner (food, water, exercise, sleep). And lastly, I remind myself where food is concerned, I eat to live, not live to eat and basically adopted the H.A.L.T. attitude. It only takes a second to ask yourself if I'm Hungry, Angry/Anxious, Lonely or Tired; an actual meal is had only if I'm hungry everything else is a snack (mostly healthy, but sometimes not and that's ok).

    Change your mind about the way you view your journey and your body will follow!

    i'm with shayla... i make friday night my "cheat" night and i have a restaurant meal (with dessert) anywhere i like. plus i make my official weigh-in day Sunday (even though I check the scale every day) so that I can't allow myself to overeat too much on Saturday.

    yes. I have the exact same problem!! I've found that if I allow myself one "cheat" meal during the weekend I can usually be okay the rest of the weekend.That way you can still have fun on the weekends! I also try to get a short workout in and keep a water bottle with me at all times!

    Here! Here!
    I have had to WORK ON and STILL WORKING on a full proof PLAN.
    Its exhausting taking a few steps forward for 5 days only to ruin it within 48 hours.
    Learning the 7 day rules for success is CRUCIAL TO SUCCESS.
    I just keep doing SOMETHING...even if it is a water down version.
    I promised myself TO DO BETTER..and I AM.
    After a while it was emotionally draining to see -2/3 lbs. shed only to be +3 lbs. by MONDAY! ...smh
    Keep sparking...your not alone with this one my dear.
