Hey ladies, hope you are all doing well!
So I was doing great, and I completely fell apart this weekend. This is a really bad pattern for me, I always over eat (a lot) on the weekends and it ruins all of my hard work during the week. I'm wondering how you all handle weekends. Do you still diet/calorie count? Do you have any tips for staying on track?
Second question is for those of you who drink. I have been trying to limit alcohol since it is so high in calories, but I do still want to grab a drink with my friends now and then. I have been drinking Vodka water with lime juice, which is actually pretty good, but I am getting sick of it. Do any of you have suggestions for healthier drinks (healthy being a relative term )?

@guitargirl55 I treat the weekends same as the weekdays, the diet is still on! I eat out a lot in general, so what I do is try to overestimate the calories in the meals eaten at restaurants. Usually I eat only until I feel no more hunger rather than until I’m ready for a food coma, so that way I use the amount of hunger I feel as a gauge for how many calories I’m actually consuming. It’s not perfect, but this method lets me enjoy eating out without any guilt.
