success for Friday. Very pleased to report a 4lb loss in the first 5 days back on plan.

Going for a 5 S event maximum on S days this weekend. Hit the 5 yesterday but no more and I was more aware of what I was choosing to treat myself with through the day. Go again today :-)

Day 3 :D

It hasn't been too difficult either. It is like a switch in my brain flicking from "don't care" to "going to make this happen"

The scales are responding too :D :D

Now I need some new goals. A completely green and yellow January would be a good start. Only 5 green days away....

It sounds to me as though you are addicted to sugar. It might be more general than that but what about committing yourself to no added sugar at all for two whole weeks and see what happens?

Success This feels like a successful diet partly because I have not done it before and fallen off the wagon. When I go back to an old diet it feels hopeless as I know I have been there, done that and regained the weight. In my mind a success is when someone has mostly stuck with a plan for 2 years....
