Everything in moderation... it's a lie I tell you!

OK - For me it is.
Maybe some of you can have everything in moderation.
I can too... If I want to maintain my weight by see-sawing on the scale every week.
For the past two weeks I have seriously cut down on my food intake... Never below 1200 calories... Usually never below 1500 calories a day.
There is one day a week that I do not track. I do not track on Saturdays. On Saturdays I am just mindful.
I also enjoy some things IN MODERATION that I would not indulge in Sunday-Friday.
I know that I am not tracking, but it's ridiculous that I am still not in enough calorie deficit to be losing over time.... Believe me when I say I am definitely not indulging enough to cover an additional 3500 calories... Let alone result in the few pounds I gain every Saturday and spend the rest of the week diligently losing, only to gain them again.
Everything in moderation? Yeah.... NO!
I realize now that if I want to lose weight and gain all the great benefits of weight loss... It will not be fun.
No moderation days any more.
But it will be worth it.
