Re: Finally Committing to No S

Soprano, Teammoney, & Automatedeating - Thanks for your condolences and shared sentiments on my love of animals! We truly treasure our furry and feathered friends, so losing one was quite horrible for me over the holiday. I'm feeling better about it now, but it's hard to peer into the cage and be re...

Re: Alene's Check-in

I think that's a great idea to not weigh daily, Alene. I've found for me, it's better to do it once a week. That way, the random fluctuations won't discourage me. I'm sure if you take several days between your weigh ins, you'll find that you're trending downwards overall! You're doing so great. :)

Re: automated eating tracker

Some doctors can really be a pain about this sort of thing. I ran into this as well when I initially began to taper off my anti-inflammatory meds and looked towards natural ways of managing my Crohn's. My PCP at the time was staunchly against me pursuing anything holistic. It's shocking at times how...

Re: Alison's Start to No S

Good job on resisting those temptations. It can definitely be a struggle, but I've already found that some of my former habits are beginning to nag me less as I continue to move forward with No S. I think it'll become easier for all of us. :) And yes, the accountability here is terrific.

I don't know if I've ever tried yogurt with peanut butter before! How do you prepare this? Do you melt the peanut butter first and drizzle it into the yogurt? :O My mind is blown by this combination! Sounds delicious, though. Do you find it very filling?
