I did it AGAIN. bread, ice cream, cake, terra chips. Whenever we have company, I just can't help myself. Not only do I have a bite, but I end up having seconds on these things. What am I on drugs or something? Like a temporary flash of insanity?

Whenever I'm alone during the week, I'm fine. Every weekend I'm getting killed by all the food. I just don't know how to win this battle. :-(
on diet The Paleo Diet  


I'm having the same struggle too. For me, it's being at home in the evenings and weekends. Something about being home and eating. I became aware of this association this evening. I have to now go through the process if redefining this relationship.. Perhaps, a coach could help? NLP? Have you considered 'why the weekend'?

What I do is I just realize there are certain foods I cannot control my eating on, so I don't even take the first bite. If I don't put it in my mouth, then I don't taste it, then I don't want more, then I don't spiral out of control. I just tell myself it's not part of my program. I make myself eat something else that is healthy and good for me, while everyone else is eating the other items. I think if you read teh book, it will always help you to understand WHY you don't want to eat those things. If you understand the why behind it, it also helps you to be stronger. Plan ahead, for next weekend. Get something prepared just for you. If you plan your daily food journal ahead of time, you will be more committed that you will stick with it, because you already planned out what you are going to eat, then don't get off track. If that doesn't work you can call 1-800-Nancy your Fat Secret buddy for a 911 ER call and I will help :)

I think it's my husband. I don't see him much during the week, and he comes home very late. When he is home, it totally disrupts my schedule. He' s not doing anything to stop or hinder me, it's my own problem. One day I won't eat any bread or rice or grains when we eat together, and the next I'm eating it with him. He's not unsupportive, but he's not the type to enforce my diet for me. He isn't discouraging but he's not encouraging either, if you know what I mean. It's definitely my own inability to stay consistent. I'm extremely frustrated.

I'm not going to give up. I will try AGAIN. Maybe the third time will be the charm. I know this diet works and I know I can lose weight. I have to condition myself and push. I already made mistakes today because I got the "poison" in my body this weekend. I'll go turn on a workout video and do it NOW. Maybe that will help get it out of my system. I am feeling so lazy right now you have no idea. Ugh!

Thanks Nancy. I will start planning my meal ahead in the food journal. I will give it a try from tonight's supper and work 3 days ahead. @Birdmadgirl, I know how you feel and mean. I am in the same situation. I will remain positive and hang in there.

I find planning meals out ahead of time makes you 1)Make sure you have the groceries on hand that you need and 2)Keeps you on track because you are planning on making something healthy ahead of time, and will follow thru. My best days are when I already have everything written down, and then just need to follow the writen word. It takes time to change habits, but we are capable fo change!
