Why do the weekends make it impossible to say "NO" to bad foods?!?

This is week 6 of my weight loss plan (to lose 20 pounds by my birthday, April 12). It has been going so well! But then the weekend comes around and I can't say "NO" to crappy food! What's wrong with me?
Here's the weekend menu:
Friday night: Teriyaki chicken wings with onion rings, 2 beers
Saturday: Lunch=Chipotle...although I chose the "salad" version with no wrap. I'm told the wrap adds 300 calories (and a lot of carbs). Dinner: Deep Fried Walleye at the New London Legion AND Irish potatotes...deep fried and dipped in a gooey cheese sauce.
Sunday: A sensible protein-y lunch, but then my stepdaughter wanted a "last meal" before having her tonsils out: a barbeque pork and pickle pizza. It was so good I ate more than I should have.
Now I feel guilty. And the downward trend was halted.
Here's the chart :(
(This is only a snapshot of a few days, so OVERALL, it's not as bad as it looks. A new resolve today!!)
