I lost a couple more pounds when I firmly started sticking to my alcohol limits. I'm not sure if it was simply the extra calories of wine, or if, as I've read, alcohol can sort of make the metabolism a bit stickier, probably by making the liver a bit off its game.

Re: Della's Monthly Check In

Very happy for your progress! In my opinion, don't worry about the exercise at this point. Willpower muscles are easily overworked and then they collapse in multiple areas. :-) Plus, I personally think focusing on eating habits is 80% of weight loss. Don't get me wrong - I think exercise and moving ...

Re: Elegant Portions Check In

I did a "NoSpending" System for awhile. I literally didn't spend money Monday - Friday. All shopping on the weekends. Even online stuff. It was too hard to keep up with as the kids got more involved with school activities, but I still track my Spending. My loose goal is to shop only once a week. Any...

Re: Linda's daily check-in

Sometimes I have a weekend of big eating and I'm shocked at how little I actually gain (I mean, a couple pounds maybe, but not scary horrible). So having a food-fest once in a while is probably good for resting our willpower muscles. I think you may be on to something. Plateaus are not very motivati...

Neat about translating your NoS principles to your understanding of another human's limits for willpower.
