Weekends can be tough on a diet. The lack of structure and familiar routines can cause even the most dedicated person to fall off the wagon myself included. Lately I have been doing an abbreviated version of my restricted diet and because of that I have halted any hopes of losing more weight.
At this point it is not going to be possible to reach my goal of losing 100 pounds by the end of August. I understand that was a pretty challenging goal to set for myself in the first place but believe me it was attainable. But because I haven’t been as strict recently I have not seen the scale move for months now.
What bothers me the most is that I have allowed myself to indulge at some point every day during that time sometimes at multiple points throughout the day. If I could have just been real with myself and tightened up my eating habits even just a couple of days throughout the week I would have continued going the right direction in my weightloss goals.
It’s frustrating because I know exactly what I’m doing wrong because I have made the same eating mistakes my entire life. I see something I want to eat and you guessed it – I eat it. Also portion control still seems to be my cryptonite or Achilles Heel.
How can I recommit to this goal? What is it going to take to finally be a healthy weight?
I’m struggling to find the answers to these questions and yet I’m determined to keep going. I know I can do this.
