LA Weight Loss - Weekends Off?
01-05-2006, 10:36 AM
Hi all. I was able to obtain the lawl plan from someone, but was wondering if someone can explain how the weekends off works. From what I am reading, I am thinking that we only eat/drink from the foods listed on the weekends off selection. I will be using the gold plan.
Also I am starting the 2-day express take off plan on Saturday. Just wondering if anyone else will be doing this that maybe we can buddy up.

From what I have heard that is a very old plan that the centers did away with, because it wasn't as succsessfull. I don't think anyone on here does it now, but their might be some older clients who remember it.
i think you might get better success with the regular plan though IMHO

Veronica - my center told me that they did away with the weekends off thing because people were eating way way off plan all weekend and would not lose. I agree with Shennie the regular plan is the best. Good luck!

Veronica - I agree that the weekend off part of the plan hasn't been around since last year - when I started - so it's not part of the basic plan right now.
Beanie! How the heck are you!?? Staying warm? How's the job?

Thanks. I guess it makes more sense to avoid temptation in its entirety.

hiya Text! Yeah actually it has been pretty warm here for the last couple of weeks and raining like heck...i would think it was Washington except its not as green! LOL
As for my job, just went back to work this week the college was closed for the holidays. We are back to our regular schedule so I will see how that goes. My boss was here yesterday and just acted like we were the best of buds. Yuk!
Veronicas! Yeah i feel it is like WW flex. It gives you to many options to eat bad and then you start craving just the bad. I find it interesting how from sticking to plan you begin to crave the veggies and the fruit. I consider fruit a dessert now and that really helps!

Yeah, weekends off was a bad idea. Who can have naughty foods in their cupboards and only eat them on the weekend, anyway?
Beanie, I love fruit normally, but I tend to stick with bananas or grapes. Having no real desserts I have started doing warm berries and stuff--love that.

You know, I can see why weekends off would not be a good idea, however, I have really been playing with the idea of one meal off a week. I am thinking probably dinner, always at a restaurant, and not hog wild, just enjoy foods that we don't normally get. What do you guys think?

one meal won't kill you especially if it keeps you on track to be POP the rest of the week, but be careful of the sodium.
I've played with that idea too. i do think that once i get on maintenance I will try something like that (since I will not be trying to loose anymore, just maintain) but during WL, one day turns into 5 too easily.

Yeah, sodium would be the killer. I keep thinking that it would be nice to split an appetizer or a piece of cheesecake with DH. I may try this, within reason of course.
