Happy Memorial Day weekend!

Happy Memorial Day weekend to those of you in the states! :)

Holiday weekends such as these are filled with warm weather, good friends, loving family and backyard barbecuing.

As delicious as barbecuing is, sometimes it brings challenges, big ones at times, to those of us watching our weight.

There are lots of things you can do to offset the damage that could be caused this weekend. If you are going to someone's house, you can bring along a food item that you know you can eat and enjoy...just bring more then one serving in case others want some. ;)

If you can't bring something, you can always eat some salad before you go. In that way you get in some veggies and help curb your hunger a bit so you won't eat much there.

Or you can use my old standby and save some points from your Weekly Points Allowance.


What are some of the things you do or tricks you use to get through a holiday weekend?

i make sure i still hit the gym, so i don't feel as guilty if i want a treat. last night i had some low-fat ice cream, and enjoyed it like crazy because i'd burned 4 activity points at the gym that morning.

Sounds good, exercise for extra points to use for something special. :)

I am probably going to use my flex points and be the coolest at the party. I am bringing a huge bowl of jicama with salt, lemon juice and chili powder (0pts/serving).

Oh, that sounds delicious! I haven't tried Jicama yet, but it sounds as if it would be something I liked.
