No Snacker, I agree with you, but I have had these perfectionist tendencies that would not allow me to fail and move on. It was actually good to be able to do that, I mean mark it and move on. I also didn't have it in my mind till later that we would eat Costco pizza, so I really was giving in and s...

Good to see you fighting your way back! It is hard, right?! It really hasn't been hard once I got back on this forum. Yesterday was a good S Day. Enjoyed my chocolate so much more since I only allow it on S days. I went for a jog in the late afternoon, finished after sunset. Today I'm thinking I ne...

Now you explained it I'm still wondering how you do it. I homeschooled my two sons, but never worked more than one and a half days a ...

Deb, Good idea on tracking the weekend. As long as its still an S day and you don't feel pressure to perform. That said, I know I feel better physically and emotionally if I eat 3 meals plus whatever and the whatever is reasonable. :wink:

Eschano, Ironchef, I agree about the permasnacking. Even at that party last night, snacking and nibbling for an hour or two was much less gratifying than if I had loaded one plate and sat down and enjoyed it. Glad to get back to an Nday today.

My fridge gets really full though and I still end up t...

When you're stressed is when you DON'T need the cookie, or should I say that the cookie is just another stressor.
