Plan your meals for the entire weekend. This makes it a LOT easier to stick to plan. Also, be active. Occupy your mind with other things. If you just sit at home bored, it's a lot easier to eat. If you are out doing fun stuff, you'll forget all about food. Smile Enjoy the weekend!

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

I struggle more on the weekend too & similarly find it best to be sure to plan out & log my meals. If we're eating out, I check the restaurant's web site so I can decide ahead what to order. And, I always try to get in some exercise & to get outdoors weather permitting. Also, there's a great group that I belong to here on FS called Operation Weekend Watch where we all struggle on the weekends & post there throughout the weekends to motivate each other -- it's really helped me! Check it out -- we'd love to have you!
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

I am usually so busy with 2 kids and a ill hubby. I am planning on staying busy raking the front yard,getting garden soil ready,always cleaning something.I eat when I get the chance! Just make sure there is something healthy that is a quick grab and yes,as kingkeld said it is best to plan your meals and know ahead of time what you can eat.

I'm struggling with this too and I am going to try to make a better plan. I will try to eat the things I eat during the week on the weekend and make sure I get my exercise in. I'm going to start planning my lunches ahead for the weekends too and make sure I have a stock of healthier quick foods for when I'm in a hurry between activities. I've quit buying as much junk for the family because I end up eating it, and they don't need it either, and if it's not there then I can't eat it. Good luck to us all!!

I don't keep anything in the house that will "tempt" me. From past experience, I'll gobble that sh*t up. Truth. So on the weekends, I "pack" my meals, get them the all prepared, or at least listed out on the fridge, so I have a visual plan. GOOD LUCK! You can do it!
