Thanks for stopping by, Iron! I appreciate any encouragement!

My husband finally got home last night and he brought a great new handbag!!

Monday was SUCCESS

I'm back to my ok weight this morning, but I'd like to lose 2-4 pounds as long as I'm not feeling hungry or deprived. :)

Blessing- I just love this thread! I am definitely a protein girl! I cannot eat sweet treats early in the day. It's usually a disaster. Self-knowledge is important!

Today was SUCCESS I, of course, started the year off with a plan called the Whole 30 (which I've completed successfully in the past and it encourages 3 meals/day), instead of just doing a pure no s plan. Needless to say, I fell off that wagon and I hope I'm back for good. I'm abou...

To modify or not to modify, that is the question!

I would love some input on mods! So I've been back to No S for a little over 2 weeks. The first week was 4/5 green and the next week was 2/5 green. My only "fails" were a small sweet with/right after dinner. I also (mostly) follow the 3 meal a day structure during the weekend. My mod(s) would be: 3 ...

I've have not had a green day since midweek last week, but my fails are very small- like one sweet right after dinner (it has been chocolate): no night snacking, no other fails. I...
