Cheers to you, SusieQ, for going back to your routine. It's not always easy to get back into exercising after a break. You go, girl!

As a recovering binge eater, carbs get me all the time.

Several weeks ago I started the No S plan. I hate to even call it a diet because it is not, and finally I have found something that can be sustainable for the rest of my life. It's a very simple premise. No sweets, no seconds, no snacks, EXCEPT on days  that begin with the letter S, and on "special" days.

   Haven't binged in two weeks now, SOOO HAPPY!

Good luck with you diet Chataround. It does not sound like a diet to me, more of a sensible, healthy eating plan, which is far better than fad diets anyway.

That's great, Chataround. Carbs are my weakness and, while I haven't binged on them in a while, I still can't seem to resist that piece of chocolate in the evening. I like your idea of limiting sweets, seconds, and snacks to days that start with S and special days. Might be something I'll copy. Keep up the good work!

Well, dark chocolate is said to be very good for you, as long as you don't overdo it.
