I mentioned before that I am going to phase out the “free day” and I meant it.
However, it’s not going to be as easy as I’d like to think.
Tomorrow I weigh-in. I’m desperately hoping for a loss. My problem, though, is that in the last couple of years, having been on and off WW, I feel almost programed to allow myself a free day as soon as I weigh in.
It’s like… I made it to weigh-in and I lost weight and I have a whole week before I have to do it again so today won’t kill me if I eat whatever I want!
And I justified it because I continued to see a loss each week.
With Christmas around the corner and the holiday parties piling up, I don’t want to start a snow ball effect. First a free day, then a holiday party (where I’m sure I’ll partake of some goodies), then I start thinking I might as well eat this or that and before I know it, the whole plan is in the garbage.
Besides, there’s a holiday party planned for every Sunday until Christmas so it’s not like I’ll be deprived, that’s for sure!
