I notice today I made better food choices during the week and am struggling to stay focused on the weekend. Perplexing or .... Confused

Are you planning weekday meals better than weekend ones?

I'm having the same trouble, dk. Even though I went shopping for a few hours today, the time I've been home I've been snacking more than I should. I think the problem is I'm not busy enough this weekend--I need to plan more activities to keep me from getting bored and eating. (Activities that don't include high-calorie restaurant meals!!)

I have the same problem DK. My work routine keeps me on an even keel. Even though our lunch food choices arent the greatest, I know what to expect. And dinner is usually light during the week. Plus, at work there is not a full kitchen 30 feet away!

Weekends I tend to graze more, and usually the family and I decide to have a meal somewhere we probably shouldnt. I think more emotional eating comes into play. When you stay busy at work, it tends to take your mind off the snacks.

"Grr" was exactly what I was thinking when I was logging in to FS tonight. Funny that this was the first post noticed. Just came back from the party that was nothing but gluten fest. I knew what I was getting myself into but did not have much choice. Now I am all swollen. It is easier for me to control what I eat during the work hours. Weekends, parties, social life present additional challenges. It is not really that I cannot make smart choices, it is more like how do I make these choices without attracting unwanted attention, and what to do if there are no choices, like today. The hostess knew that I do not eat wheat, and still did not serve anything that I could eat safely, as she does not take it seriously.
