I have been back on No S vanilla for a couple months now and have not tweaked anything..my last 2 attempts last up to 5 months and then I started tweaking only to fall fla...

I bought myself a mister coffee latte machine and make myself one here and there..I do use the artificial flavorings, but I"m sure you could add your own vanilla extract, etc. Just a thought...for me I hate say it but a 100 calorie drink.

I hate that when snacks call, but if you don't give them to much power the urge will pass..if that makes sense...acknowledge them and set the thought free by hanging on to the thought it becomes stronger and stronger...

I have the same moments where something calls me..
