Weekends are difficult!

Sunday, January 14, 2007

I got myself into a really bad habit back when I first did the WW program. It was when the points system was fairly new and a friend of mine did a program called Weekends Free. So even though I was on the 1,2,3 program, I took the "Weekends Free" term literally and began eating whatever I wanted. I was still very successful doing it that way, however, I was still giving into my bad eating habits. It's easy to go right back to eating junk food and other crappy things if I allow myself to eat like that every single weekend. My healthy eating does not become a lifestyle change. Guess that explains why I am on attempt #4 of losing the same weight (plus some from pregnancies).

I need to break myself of this unhealhty habit, but I am having a difficult time with it.

    If you are giving WW a try again, go with the core program this time. It centers around eating healthy, whole foods and makes it very difficult to do "weekends free".

    If you're simply following SparkPeople, which is a great way to go, then follow these concepts: lean meats, 2 servings fat free dairy, 5 servings of fruits & veggies every day, whole grains, don't eat both potatoes and brown rice in the same day, and get in plenty of water.

    Allow yourself the "treats", but limit them to no more than 1,000 calories per WEEK. Good luck with your weight loss efforts, and have a great time at your reunion.
