Oh I hear ya on that!! In the back of my mind I swear my little points calculator disappears on the weekends and suddenly reappears first thing monday morning, its awful!!

(this is what my brain in thinking at least). Finding a way to do this without blowing all my hard work makes me feel good and also not deprived.
You know, I never use my 35 bank points or my exercise points (or should I say, I never actually write them down and count them!!) But maybe if I actually did save them and use them on the weekends, it would help me to stay on track better. I'm going to try that this week.

I also joined the self challenge yesterday, today was my first day doing it. They give you lists and how many of each item to eat, I tried it today instead of counting points, just to see how I would do. I did well and I just counted up how many points I actually ate for the day and I still have 7 left for the day, so I can have a little snack later.

I like that I can log my info on selfs website, since I don't have a WW membership and I'm also following there exercise plan.

Now I've just got to keep myself on track when the weekend comes!

Well for me that's what those flex points are for. Otherwise when the weekend comes I just say F it - I want to have fun and I end up being out of control. You don't have to do it but maybe it will help.

I signed up for the Self-Challenge too but then since I have a WW monthly pass I already track all my food and exercise points there. So I'm sort of overwhelmed with tracking! However I think for me I want to track on both for a day or two to try and figure out how many calories (not just points) I am actually eating. I think it would be very interesting...

That was a fantastic acronym Kashmira! I nominate you to become our "group" leader! LOL. You are so full of information!

 

Do any of you ladies track cleaning, laundry, ect as activity points?

 

I noticed it was in there, but kind of feel like it's cheating on activity points?

Thats exactly what happens on the weekend, I go out of control, but really if I didn't go totally crazy and used my extra points, I don't think I'd do too bad. And usually what happens is once I eat one bad thing, it just snowballs because I say "Oh well, I already messed up might as well continue". But really, I could definetly get myself to have a low point breakfast and a light lunch and still have plenty of regular points and my extra points to have some weekend treats.

I do like how self tells you the calories, but it is a lot of tracking to count points and track on self, but I'm trying to still do both.

I've never done this, it does sort of feel like cheating, but they do list it.
