(And I just noticed it's even in Campbell's tomato soup -wtf?) Amy's Organics are the BEST. So when I purchase pure simple...

But then you have the Soy Chocolate milk (Soy Slender) -- that stuff is fantastic, ...

the scales

I love breakfast!

I'm a newbie too, but I assume cereals that contain sugar on N days is a no....

I had Puffins (they contain cane sugar) for breakfast this morning (Saturday) because they have sugar, but I'm not going to eat them during my N days.

Congratulations....

on your WW's article. Prepare for the deluge! Your plan sounds fantastic (and so simple, yeah!) I'm going to try it, I love the idea of no snacking (guilty), no seconds (guilty guilty) and no sugar (don't ask.) I'm also contemplating a sledge hammer purchase, thankfully I have no cats to kill.
