Hi Laff,

It must have been an S day in disguise...I ate a half of a bag of chocolate easter eggs, then some potato chips to get the chocolate taste out of my mouth!!! Like you, the first mess up since the first of January. Oh well, like you say, on to tomorrow...MJ

Looks like we've got our own little support group going here: No Loss on No S!! However, I like Laff, tend to do more than light snacking on S days. This, combined with minimal water drinking may be adding to my negligible weight loss. I was exercising faithfully 4-5 days a week, (mild climate = wal...

Hi there and welcome!! I am in your same boat, but I have been at this for over 2 months now. The group has tried to analyze why I haven't lost much weight..the same 4 lbs. keep going back and forth. Finally this weekend the "no loss" syndrome got to me and I went all out starting on Fri. I could fe...

You mean it's not spelled Sfriday? Personally, I will most likely lean toward strict letter of the law on this. I don't seem to be able to "just have one." It's all or nothing with me, so I will hold off till official S days. Maybe as I become more self disciplined, I can juggle Fridays a bit. MJ
