Well, this is only my second set of S-days, and I've already discovered they are far more difficult than I wanted them to be. Even though I said my mantra on these days was, "Don't be an Idiot!" I have not heeded it. Both weekends I have used my S days as official permission to stuff my face with al...

Alas, on Friday I went awry and was forced to put a * on the calendar. This, of course, sets me back as far as getting into the 21 Club--argh. I don't have any excuse--I made a conscious choice to break the rules when I binged. I didn't even really try to talk myself out of it or give myself a chanc...

I'm so glad you're doing well--and seem so much more relaxed. I think you were very wise to take this in turtle steps--especially at this time of year. Every little bit forward is still taking you in the ultimate direction you want to go. I read a book once about how people are more apt to make last...

Hola Senorita! Glad you've joined us along the No-S journey. I can totally relate to you when it comes to being a sugar fiend. However, the longer I stick with this, the less I crave it--and I find when I do eat or drink something sweet--it seems almost sickeningly so to me. A small sweet treat goes...

I'm going to chime in with the others and agree that I think you should keep your S-Days sacred.
