    Am I the only one who struggles on weekends ? I find it so much easier to stick to my points at work in the week but come the weekend, temptations lurk on every corner. :eek:

    was weight watchers but are drifting apart, am having an affair with Lipotrim...
    Oh the weekends absolutely kill me!! I find them so difficult!

    Like you, Im fine during the week because Im at work and have set break times and am too occupied to think about food but the weekends I find I really struggle - the fridge calls me!!

    I try to save as many points as possible during the week for this but find I do sometimes go over at the weekend and end up having to pay back..

    I found saving 4 a day during the week when I was on 27, 26, 25, 24, 23, 22 points but now that Im on 20 a day I find living on 16 a day during the week really hard and seldom get to save the full 4. AAARRGGHH

    Glad Im not the only one though!!

    I'm not sure about this one. I find the weekends hard in the sense that we usually have takeaway, so I find it hard (or impossible? lol) not to indulge in one...but, I am a full time mum and home all week on my own with bubs, so I actually find it harder during the week I think. When OH is here at the weekends I'm too embarrassed to stuff my face all day, but when I'm home alone, it's all I usually do!

    Im lucky in that I work most weekends so my 'danger zone' is my days off which are mid week. Thankfully some fall on a Monday, my treat night tho ;)

    I find weekends awful. With two young children (5 and 18 months) I feel like I am constantly cooking for them and they are constantly eating. When I give my children their lunch/tea anything that isn't eatten goes straight in the bin to stop me from wanting to pick.:whistle:

    If it is too bad I just have a glass of water or a coffee (which I am allowed on SF). I know I am more lucky than most as I do get to eat one meal a day but weekends are a killer.

    Good luck everyone.
