Hi, I agree, scales are evil. I was doing exactly what you say you are doing. I was so excited by the initial weight loss that I just couldn't stay off of the scale. Of course when it inevitabley stopped moving it had a huge psychological effect on me. I struggled after that to even stay on the diet...

I have been chugging along with No S for the last few weeks. No 21 day club yet, but I still want it. Since I have stopped obsessively checking in, I have lost 2 pounds, and stayed mostly within the diet guide lines. I like to check in every day so that I can watch my progress (or lack of) but I was...

The Honeymoon is Over

My first two weeks on this program were effortless. I was smugly assuming that by finding this program, I had already conquered my weight problem. The first two weeks were so easy, and I lost 4 pounds. Sure, everyone said that this was a slow process, but I went ahead and did the math anyway. (You k...
