Day 3... Saturday ON PLAN!

I am happy to report that I have stayed on plan today! I struggle with weekends, and today went so well! Thank goodness for Slim-Fast bars... it was so easy to grab and go as I was running out the door for my daughter's game. I had eat breakfast, but remembered last minute that I would be out past my next mealtime. Even though the BBQ they were serving smelled SO GOOD, I had my bar and was satisfied.

We also went out to eat tonight, which is also a struggle of mine. But I picked the restaurant (Cracker Barrel) because I knew I could get a good salad there. And it was so good that I didn't even miss getting my usual carb-loaded breakfast feast that I usually get! It feels so good to be in control!

So far I only have about 1600 calories, so I have plenty of room to drink a Slim-Fast shake before bed (I don't know why I love to drink a shake before bed, but I do!). I am looking forward to a good day tomorrow. Pot roast is on the menu, so I am going to look up calorie counts right now!


  1. Well done. I can never reign myself in when eating out and also struggle at weekends. I've been following your blog for a while now and am in the habit of checking it daily as hearing how others are coping motivates me too

  2. Ah that is so great to hear! Weekends are definitely the hardest part of the week for me too! Good job!

  3. Hi, I am a 55 year old and having a major issue with losing weight. My biggest challenge is procrastination. I am one of the best at being able to block out what I need to do and go forward with eating all the wrong things.
    Last year I lost 25 lbs. I was feeling great. I got injured, carpel tunnel on both arms. I subconsciously used this as an excuse to do all the wrong things.
    Where is my self control? I am looking for places that I can interact with others, maybe find some support in the way of friends who can help me with staying with the program. I have no support at home and no close friends.
    I have tried several of the major diet programs and all failed. When I did lose weight it was pretty much just staying true to watching what I ate and when, I stuck to a 1500 calorie per day diet, no soda, sugar, bread or junk food, no eating after 5pm. Well all that went out the window and I am back up to 246lbs. I need to be 200.
    I do have a blog that I post on and would like to be able to place my link on other sites. I do not advertise anything. I am just looking to interact with others that face the same challenge I do. My blog is about my addiction to food and I also have a couple other categories I blog about
    I really feel my problem with eating is much like an addiction. I just can’t seem to kick the habit.
    Thanks for letting me post
