If your problem time is weekends have you considered swapping to a group later in the week? It would give you more time to recover from your bad days
Ok I'm sorry if this sounds harsh..... chocolate doesn't just jump into your mouth of it's own free will, it needs a hand to guide it there!

I think this could be a boredom issue. I found the first few weekends very difficult as indeed were the nights. I needed to realise that just because I had nothing to do but watch tv etc that I shouldn't be filling that time drinking tea and eating buscuits/chocolate! Once I realised that I went on to realise that in pre diet days I wouldn't have been eating at that time anyway!

Psychologically we all want what we cannot have, try to keep yourself busy and when you feel the craving start distract yourself, go for a walk, read a book whatever it takes. If you can stick to it during the week then there is no reason for not sticking to it at the weekends. Sure the week is much longer.

Come on girl, you can do it.

Taz's suggestion is a really good one, for those with a specific problem at the weekends, having a Monday WI is fab, because then you are less tempted to cheat. Another good idea is to get all the cr*p food out of the house. I did that this weekend so that I am not tempted. have plenty of snacks in the house that you can eat so you aren't tempted.

I have the same problem with the weekends and also the evenings and for me its just down to bordom a habit thats bloody hard to get out of! Automatically I associate CSI with chocolate, crisps .........lol
I have been successful on SW, lost 2 stone in 6 weeks, but when my dad got sick I put everything on hold, and now im back were I started at 18 stone.
For me, I need a subsitute so I have celery and carrots with laughing cow, chickpea nut things which I like, ryvita and salad.

If you slip for a day and have a total blow out just get up the next morning and start healthy eatting again.
Good luck
Hiya Hun

Well i think you should plan your weekend food menu....have chocolate by all means but just save it for the evening as YOUR treat for being good.
Have a 2fingered kitkat or curly wurly with a cuppa at nite, maybe at lunch time have some syn free chips with egg and beans....something thats quite filling.
I love the syn free crisps(green day) thery are sooooo nice esp if you flavour them. Just pick at them.

I put on 2lb last week and thought to myself 'here we go' the start of the never ending blip....but ive drawn a line under last week and been good this week.

You can do it hun
You know you can and you will be fine!

Give the weekend food planner a go.
