I've seen mention of that method, eschano. Do you switch back Sunday night or Monday morning? I had a good amount of sweets on the weekend, starting with Saturday breakfast. My planned Sunday treat was a no-go, the bakery was out and I didn't want any other available flavor. Just that right there: I...

Hi everybody! I truly thank you for your advice and support. I again binged on Friday night. I wonder whether 5 straight days might be too much for me and I'd be better off splitting the S days. I think I'll try that next week. Yesterday I enjoyed my treats and didn't go too crazy...just a little. :...

You threw away your wallet?! Wow, that probably would have driven me to the food, so extra congrats on getting through that mess! Since it's not part of the 14-word No-S rules, I don't think glass ceiling counts unless it is one of your personal goals.

Hi Airmail, congratulations on your weight loss! Looks like you've pretty much ingrained the habit by now. I hope you've adjusted to your new schedule too. I'm glad you posted again; when people disappear it makes me a little nervous about the program.

Swuddly, congratulations on your string of successes! I'm particularly impressed with how you dealt with the work challenges of offered treats and the dreaded potluck :shock: !! You're a few days ahead of me and it's interesting to see how things are changing for you day by day.

Thank you all for your tips and encouragement! Yesterday was a successful day. I had some cravings but was able to calm them in part by walking (3 yesterday!), in part by prepping food (I really like to be around food :oops: ), part with an evening drink (something I often do already), and part list...

Thanks for the tip, eschano! And for being there...these boards get a little lonely at times! Right now I like to do it in the morning, when I can go at my own pace; I'm building up my speed and distance, hoping to be up to a fairly comfortable two miles by around the 15th. BUT if I can add the even...

I'm glad this topic is still open for discussion. I just finished Episode 13 and found it quite profound.

Thank you aspencer27 and lpearlmom for your encouragement and for answering my questions! I won't worry about the drink before dinner. Friday, an S day, went fine until after supper, when I binged pretty much all night until bedtime. I may have enjoyed it less, but "enjoy" is not what I do during bi...

I moved up to a shovel today, weighs ~2.5 lb (unfortunately I don't have a digital scale). I had to limit some moves to less than 7 reps, but I had no pain. I did it for 12 minutes before breakfast.

i found it! I still don't know how I originally got there, but I took another look at my history and found it here. This is a good way to get started with SG, no matter what item of what weight you start with. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7B_Fl4 ... 123867AAE5

Thanks for the welcomes! Yesterday I'm not sure about because right before dinner I had a beer. Normally this would be with dinner. Does this count as a fail? Is there a different term besides "fail"? Like I've read some others say, I don't like that term, way too loaded emotionally. Otherwise the d...

Video question from a newbie

Hey gang, this is my first week and I like this exercise better than anything else I've ever tried. Somewhere on the shovelglove.com page, or perhaps a link from it, there is a 14 minute video of Reinhard doing various moves. I like it because it's continuous and I don't have to stop to click on the...

One of the things I've done in the past is put that saved money in a "new skinny clothes" jar. It builds up fast!

SUCCESS!!!!! :D I finished my taxes and as far as I know I only have to sign the papers after the accountant gets them ready. HALLELUJAH!!!! Made dinner too. I am completely exhausted and had a beer before dinner. Don't know whether that means a No S failure or not, but I don't care.
