Re: What do you consider a “special” day?

I read somewhere on this forum that 2 "special" days per month are smiled upon. So at the beginning of the month, I plan two days. Last month it was my birthday and our Easter party at work. This month it's memorial day and out monthly birthday celebration at work. If there's a month when I have mor...

Re: NaomiShambles's non-daily check-in

Wow. Yesterday was a 5 course home cooked food extravaganza and it really reinforced how well No S works for me. The food was amazing but I was kind of miserable. The courses were spaced out a lot, but not enough for me to get truly hungry, just enough to make me feel like I was eating all day and I...

Re: NaomiShambles's non-daily check-in

Biggest victory so far: I've had a pint of Ben and Jerry's untouched in the freezer for nearly three weeks! And I probably won't have it this weekend either, since we'll be out of town for Easter. Enjoying other sweets. I've got a half eaten container of toffee on the coffee table right in front of ...

Re: The Brown Rice...

From a dieting/weight loss point of view, the problem with white rice is it's much less satiating per calorie. Not a problem if it's just part of your meal, along with satiating protein and vegetables, and you don't take seconds! In some dishes I like brown rice, for example I find the extra chewine...

I think for Iphone there's a similar app called Happy Scale.
That's right. I use it and I think it's great! I find that weighing daily & using Happy Scale to smooth out the graph has helped me understand & not fear weight fluctuations.

Re: NaomiShambles's non-daily check-in

Great job having a green week! What do you mean about the "this is why you're fat" moment? Did they say that to you because of what you were eating? No, not at all! They didn't comment on my food at all. It was just something I thought to myself, since there was a clear difference between what I or...

Re: NaomiShambles's non-daily check-in

First green week accomplished. No real challenges. Somebody did bring a box of See's chocolates to work, but I avoided the kitchen for a couple hours and when I finally went over for a glass of water, the chocolates were all gone. I didn't even have to try to resist! Anyway, today was a success as w...

NaomiShambles's non-daily check-in

I'm planning to use this thread as a diary--I don't plan to update daily, just whenever I have something to say. This week is going to be my first full week of No S without any non-weekend S days. I did No S last week, but Thursday was my birthday so I had some treats and an awesome seafood boil. Fe...
