My son was telling me that a couple of months ago, he checked his email one morning and had an order confirmation from Amazon for stuff he didn't order. Fortunately none of it had shipped and Amazon cancelled the order and refunded his money.

As I have been "rehearsing" my return to No-S, I have been using a little vanilla soymilk in my decaf coffee to tide me over from one meal to the next.

I like the idea of watered down juice, too, and will try that. It would be an easy thing to manage at work.

I've been off the wagon so much it's not even funny but I always keep coming back. It's like No S is the baseline I measure my (bad) behavior against. I eat mostly from-scratch healthy foods, but I just eat too darn much of it. I'm lucky, I guess, that while I haven't lost any weight, I haven't gain...

Dinner: sardines, boiled buttered little red potatoes, green beans After dinner, we had some errands to run, so we also stopped at Starbuck's and I limited myself to a decaf with a little vanilla soy. No cookies! :D Our daughter graduates from college today, so this is a very happy S Day for me. :D

Wednesday dinner: Dirty Rice, veggies, mandarin orange and bananas. Zatarain's Dirty Rice does not work with Food Rules, which I'm still following. Too many ingredients, many of which would not appear on my pantry shelf. Bought it in a moment of laziness, but will not buy again. I can make it better...

I can't believe what a difference this is making. Lunch...didn't happen until 2:30, and then there wasn't anythi...
