Stuff to say both here and here but I've said all I have energy to write here.
Just one thing.
I chose an 'indulgence' for each day of the week, something I would eat as part of a main meal or snack. I have found myself wanting to make a large buttered sandwich several times and each time I remembered I had an indulgence for later and if I ate that sandwich I lost my indulgence, Since bread is my indulgence twice a week I have been able to say to myself, hang on.
Previously I have never been able to defer food as successfully and it's been reasonably painless too. I'm only half way through the first week so too early to say I have at last found a successful long-term strategy.
Small beginnings. I'm reminded of the Tippy Toe Diet. Your plan must be rubbing off on me.
