Otherwise had a great day. Did a bike ride AND took the dogs for a walk after.

The best way to learn is to make mistakes. :)

The first few weeks it seems you ahve to really be very mindful between meals and even after meals- during cleanup, I'd always finish the last roll or the last few bites of cassarole, etc. Very easy to slip up.

Keep it up :)

What if I got a noS tattoo on my right hand, just on the top of my hand close to where the 'meat' of the thumb meets the wrist. A small S with a red circle/slash over it LOL. Seriously!
