Amen!!! Please someone help? I go to a total shambles ! In someways worse than I was before CC because its a lot more conscious. I can sometimes rein it in if I am not doing much socialising but as soon as seeing friends/eating out/drinking comes into the mix - best intentions go to pot!

I had a horrific one this week, so much greasy pizza - it made me feel really ill and obviously looks like I will gain also. I am just trying to hang onto the uncomfortable feeling I had and make sure I remember that next time I make choices to have junk food. I want to be able to enjoy the weekends and have not-so-healthy stuff now and again and definitely don't want to feel guilty about it but it is totally pointless and disappointing when you have something that just "wasn't worth it".

I am going to try and tackle this weekend (which is another socialising one) by enjoying all my meals out but making sure all the "treats" decisions I make are things I enjoy as I eat them and make sure I stop once I am satisfied and not binge just because its a weekend.

I will definitely keep an eye on this thread to see if anyone else has any tips

Could you not assign one day over the weekend where you can have one meal - not the day off plan - anything you like.

Then get straight back on it after that meal - if you choose Saturday then whatever comes up Sunday will have to fit around being good! Unless you consume 3500 cals your still be ok!

This is what I tend to do - I have to live and enjoy life too! X

I am the exact same. End up being overindulgent at weekends,if socialising. Wish I had some good advice but I am at a loss too! I do like mizkirsty's idea though so may give that a bash!!

I don't particularly struggle with my meals I don't think but rather if I'm pottering about at home I have a tendency to nibble on what's lying about. Or if I'm out grabbing an unhealthy snack. Also I'm going to the Trafford centre tomorrow after work. We will b there at tea time. What do I do????

No gym now till Sunday either. Might b able to squeeze in a session at home sat evening but chances are ill b vegged out on the sofa coz I'm fella n child free.

Happens to me too, mainly on a Sunday with the big roast dinner but if I go on a night out its the drink and then the day after full of bad food! I try and be good when I can and if I'm bad just enjoy it! Life's goin to be full of weekends and I want to enjoy them!!! And if it means only having one of the cupcakes my kids make instead of 7 then so be it!!!

I would say - save a few calories a day maybe 50? that would allow you to have an good meal/drink - also get some execise in - a 1 hour walk at a moderate pace would give you about 300 calories

Plan your weekend - keep the meals that you eat at home low in cals so that you can have a meal out - but choose wisely

I find weekends easier - but then I have two kids - weekends mean no packed lunches...yippee!!
