Work days are easier!
I have struggled this weekend, hungrier than previous ones on JUDDD. I work long days M- Th so I bring my food with me. I'm busy through the day so I'm not focused on food unlike the weekend. DD were Fri and today, more hunger but making it through. In just over 4weeks I've lost 7 lbs! I'm enjoying this WOE just struggling a bit this weekend!

Congrats on the loss!!

I can't address the work day issue, as I'm an artist working from home and the kitchen is always steps away. Well, I guess I can address this. Distraction is good, on weekends you may have to manufacture your own. I love going to movies on DDs, I just skip the popcorn.

I also love long walks on DDs. Long soaking baths in epsom salts. Going out for coffee (an Americano, black with Splenda is my go-to). Working out, going shopping, and getting some good cleaning done or some other intense project are also good DD activities.

I can't read on DDs, at least not with food nearby, as eating with a book was a long-time habit for me. I also don't watch tv, the commercials are too distracting.

Hope this helps! You're doing great! KUTGW!

Congratulations on the weight loss! Isn't it nice when the bouncing scale is your friend?

I totally agree busy days are easier to handle. As Luna says, sometimes we have to manufacture our own busy day. Wash the house. Paint the bedroom. Rearrange the living room. Write the next great novel.

Thanks for the encouragement! Another thing I remembered is I drink more water at work which helps to curb the hunger. I need to be purposeful about my water when I'm home.

I found the weekend harder as well. I think what I'm going to do is focus on having 3 DDs during the week. I struggled so much yesterday that I simply couldn't hold out any further and had to turn it into a moderate day. Today I'm finding it no bother at all.
