Don't blame me, it was all Deb's idea...

So Deb suggested I post here after posting in my thread all by my lonesome... Long story short, after 7 months of no-S-ing I am still keeping the weight off. I'd managed to lose about 25 pounds in the first 5 months and since then I've dropped down another 5 (and then bouncing back up & down again) ...

Still here...

Wow, it's been awhile since I've posted. Well it's about 7 months since I started no-S-ing and I am still going strong. No major weight losses since my 25-pounds-down post earlier, but then again I haven't gained anything back, so that's a major plus. Depending on how generous my scale is feeling wi...

Good news & bad news -- bad news first: I've really slacked off in my shovelgloving. I know I *should* be and I can't really use the excuse that I don't have time -- I'm just never good with exercise. I really do want to get back on it, though, I know I was losing weight at a better pace when s-glov...

Re: Back with her tail between her legs...

I have to say that No-S is the closest I have seen to this. I do have some questions though- 1. Must I always eat high quality during the week? 2. What if I find myself very hungry between meals- could I have an apple or something to get me to my next meal? 3. What about lattes? I love an occasiona...
