I've lost a little over two pounds in seven days. While it's nothing to get too excited about, at least the scale didn't go up. For that I'm grateful. As I said in an earlier post, I wasn't really strict with myself this week. I'm not sure if that's the correct approach...but it's what I did. And it seemed to work...at least this week.

If you're dieting too, then you know probably know the weekend is a total danger zone. While not easy...weekdays might be a little easier to avoid junk food, snacks, and grazing while binge watching Netflix. So here's a tip for surviving the weekend, passed on to me by the people running our company weight loss challenge.

Drink plenty of water or other calorie-free beverages. It's easy to confuse thirst with hunger. I do it all the time...and I drink lots of water. The risk of confusing thirst for hunger is meaningless calories. Instead of picking up the chips...grab a glass of cold water. I know a lot of people hate plain water...so try adding fresh lemon or lime juice. You can also brew infused teas like mango or peach. They have lots of flavor...but NO calories.

Have a great weekend. Drink your water. And look back here on Monday. I'll talk about ADDING food to your diet instead of taking it away!
