I spend most of my Friday nights helping with our church’s youth group. Youth has been off for the holidays for the past few weeks, so I hadn’t really thought how it would factor into my weight loss.
I see now that Friday nights will be a challenge as far as eating is concerned. We feed the kids a lot of delicious junk that I would love to eat, but I won’t. Mindless snacking is the enemy of weight loss and accountability. It’s too easy to fool yourself that you’re eating well, but consume a lot of calories in social situations where food is laid out on tables.
I ate dinner tonight, so I can resist the chocolate, pies and sausage rolls. I must make sure I eat dinner before I go to youth group every Friday.
It also makes me wonder where our heads are at that we would feed the kids all this stuff that I feel I shouldn’t be eating myself, but that’s a topic for another day.
