I'm actually a newbie! I just started a week ago today and it's been fairly easy so far. I didn't even go overboard on the S days. Today was a success with no funny business. My sis also started the same day as me so there's some extra support there. This diet makes a lot of sense. With other "diets" you never know when your next treat will be because they are always off limits or you feel like you're cheating. With this, I know that I'll have something I want on S days. Gives me something to look forward to.

a newbie party sounds good, as long as it's on an S day! Laughing
Day 8: A success. It started out hectic. I forgot to set the alarm and made it to work on time with 2 minutes to spare. I didn't have time for breakfast at home, so I was happy that I didn't grab a donut or poptart from the vending machine!

Day 9: Success!! Not the healthiest choices, but still no snacks and no sweets. An unexpected side effect: less frequent heartburn. Not sure why, but I like it!

Sure Deb, everyone was a newbie once. Very Happy

That's great to hear about the less frequent heartburn. I've noticed some nice side effects too. Less gas. (Embarassed ...that's embarrassing to talk about)

Good job! It's much better to pile the plate than to break the rules. At the beginning I had to pile my plates pretty high sometimes to make it between meals, but they are shrinking as I go along.

day 19 Success!
still hard, but I know tomorrow i can have something I have been craving all week and that's my mocha and muffin for breakfast. 2 more days to 21! I did have a couple of pieces of gum(not sugarfree), but I don't consider that to be a failure(right?).

Go Redwinger!!!
Nope a few pieces of gum aren't too troublesome..
Maybe is you eat like ten pieces a day or something...

Congrats on your great 19 days and hope you are enjoying sliding into homebase on an S weekend...
Peace and Love,
Cool Deb

Thanks All! It feels great! I'm still going to check in daily. I'm prone to slip up and this does keep me going.

I'm still doing well, but I'm still having a hard time fighting off the cravings after supper. I WANT more, but I know that I'm not really hungry.

did horrible this past week! 2 days off of no S besides my S days and NO exercise! I've GOT to get back on this week with better choices. I have been doing No S for over a month and I think I've actually gained weight because of my food choices. I'm not giving up though!
